We stayed here as a last minute booking. We rang ahead only 2hrs before we were due to arrive. Our host knowing that it was going to be very cold that night turned the heater on to warm the room up for us. This was very much appreciated. As it was only 5 deg by the time we got there.... More

The room was comfortable and breakfast was very ample and nice and spot on time to our room. Our hosts were delightful and very helpful. Loved the roomy shower. Aircon worked well, though being a in-wall unit was typically too loud to leave on while sleeping - as with all regional motels. Electric blankets worked perfectly. Free Wifi was good.... More

I made a reservation online last minute and arrived late at night before leaving very early next morning. The owners were so helpful in making sure the room was available for me when I arrived so I could pass through town on short notice. Not only is customer service here great but the room was very clean and comfortable. Would... More

Another wonderful stay for my husband and I at the Sapphire City Motor Inn! This time we stayed in a self-contained Cottage. This was a really great alternative as we were travelling with another family member. We had a very spacious lounge room, a well-fitted out and large kitchen- dining room and luxurious bathroom. Separate large bedrooms, one with a... More

I can't fault this establishment. The owners were more than friendly, they made you soooo welcome and assisted me with a walking aid for my mother as well. There are different rooms to suit any situation. Definitely the place to stay in Inverell.

We recently stayed at the Sapphire City Motor Inn Inverell for the weekend and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
