I needed a motel for the night en route to Sydney and found the Sandstock. The host was lovely and very efficient, and the room was very clean, comfortable and quiet. It is a short walk to the CBD and the Bowling Club across the road was a great place for dinner. Highly recommended.

My husband & I stayed for one night recently & could not recommended Sandstock Motel more highly. Right from when we arrived to check in we were impressed. I think the owner's name was Annette & she was very friendly. Fresh milk is always appreciated too! The room was spacious & spotless with a really comfy bed. Despite being on... More

We stayed in February and had the most enjoyable stay, location couldn't be faulted literally in the heart of town so close to everything. The rooms are clean and comfortable and managers Glenn and Annette couldn't be more accommodating. We really couldn't find fault and will most definitely be back.

All you really need for an overnight stay is a quiet, dark room, comfortable bed and nice sheets. The friendly owners at the Sandstock Hotel provide this. A very good night's sleep off the highway and walking distance to a club or hotel for dinner. There is amicrowave in the room but no crockery. However, this was easily rectified by... More

7 ladies on a bowling holiday stayed at this Motor Inn for 3 nights. The owners went out of their way to make our stay very enjoyable. The rooms were very comfortable and quite and being the start of winter very warm and cosy. Laundry was done and rooms tidied every day (not usual these days). The Sandstock is located... More

Looking for an overnight stay close to the CBD of Armidale, NSW. The Sandstock Motor Inn is located just on the fringe of the CBD and close to the Wicklow Hotel. The Motor Inn was very good. It has been there for some time and I have used it a few times for both myself and guests visiting Armidale. The... More

Armidale has a lot of motels because of the uni, overnighting on the way to somewhere else and local intetezts. Some of them are multi room establishments. Some of them, like Sandstock are smaller. Most of them are your standard set up and not good value for money. Not this place. We were telephoned to make sure all was well... More

The Sandstock is under new management and the new managers/staff are lovely people. The rooms, although starting to show some wear and tear, are very clean and cosy. The beds are comfy and the breakfast menu is simple but adequate. My bacon and eggs were great and plentiful. I travel to Armidale on business fairly regularly and will return to... More

This is just the best, for location, décor, attention to detail , and all the little extras plus the personal touch and friendliness of the owner/manageress. The thoughtfulness even extended to allocating a room next to the one required for a step through shower - with the bed facing the way (for a picky traveller) - having the heating on... More
