Very friendly, helpful hosts, with clean, quiet rooms. Onsite parking, and everything we needed to save us from the perils of an all day drive - including a microwave oven and a dining table bigger than a dinner plate. In the middle of Armidale, with plently of pubs and restaurants close by.

Has everything you want for an overnight stay and is very clean. Beds are very comfortable but the room is a bit dark. Staff were very friendly. The outdoor garden area could use a little TLC. The AC in the room was very old but worked just fine.

Very friendly owners, lovely clean room and very quiet. Breakfast to room was hot and right on time. Very comfortable bed and a heated towel rail a bonus! Booked through Trip Advisor and got a 5% discount and a free bottle of wine!

Motel lives up to most of its descriptors. We stayed in #11. Rooms are large-ish and very clean, TV good, air/con works to selected temp, owners and staff are great. Bed is comfortable and bedding adequate. My rating is 3 not 4 due to the deodorant/disinfectant used. I admit to just plain not liking the smell, and I am sensitive... More

Warning, you'll need to set an alarm clock to wake you if you stay here. It's curtains provide complete block out of light, the double brick walls provide complete block out of noise and the bed is so comfortable it provides a complete nights sleep! We stayed here this time both on the way down (2 nights) and on the... More

Although the rooms are a little dated they are comfortable, clean and spacious with amenities such as plunger coffee, herbal teas and rags to wipe down shoes or vehicles. The owner was very friendly and helpful and the motel itself is very well situated opposite the bowling club near the centre of town. The bowling club is also a good... More

Have stayed in this motel before but this is the first review on the Sandstock Motor Inn. The rooms are very clean and have all the conveniences you need for a nights stay. Staff are very helpful and accommodating. Located across from the bowling club and a short stroll into the Main Street

Stayed overnight on our way to the Hunter Valley. Very clean, comfortable with good bedding and showers. Wonderfully thoughtful,managers - even providing rags and water buckets for cleaning bugs and mud off cars. Much appreciated when you are setting off again in the morning.

We stayed here for one night in early October on our way home to Queensland. The owners were very helpful and welcoming. The rooms were comfortable, clean and well equipped and the shower was absolutely wonderful - plenty of hot water and pressure. We had dinner across the road at the Bowls Club and can recommend it. The special offer... More
