It is difficult to find a positive here. There is not enough parking, the aircon barely coped, the power kept going off (and the air con with it). There was a smoking bench right outside my door and didn't get any good response when I suggested that this was not such a great idea. The room was dirty - walking... More

Rhonda and her team didn't get phased when our group (13 motorcyclists) pulled into the drive way. After confirming our booking Rhonda then very efficiently organised our sleeping quarters. For breakfast instead of room service Rhonda suggested we have a barbecue breakfast, this went down very well with the group. Directly opposite the motel is a bowling club with evening... More

Everything about the accommodation was commendable, and we found the owner/manager, Ross, attentive to our every need. Having a good meal brought to our rooms after a tiring journey was particularly welcome. And what a boon it was to have 24-hour free wifi that ran without a hitch - not often the case in motels or hotels.

Had a wonderful week at Inverell with the help of the motels new owners Ross and Rhonda Thomson. They were very helpful with local activities and sight seeing, the meals were excellent and the rooms were very comfortable and clean. Would highly recommend this motel. Thank you once again for making our holiday so enjoyable.

The best part Sapphire City Motor Inn was the room service. Absolutely fantastic food. Very friendly and welcoming staff. Comfy beds, clean rooms. Pleasure to stay there. If we travel to Inverell again, we will choose to stay there.

Spent the night here as we went to a function at the Bowling Club straight across the road. Made it very easy having just to walk to and from the club. The room was comfortable with no issues of any kind, left early the next day.

We chose this motel because of recent reviews, its location and appearance. We did not book ahead and unfortunately the room we required was not available. However, the very friendly lady owner offered Ruby Cottage which is adjacent to the motel. They have recently spent a lot of money renovating the cottage and we gratefully accepted the offer. The lady... More

Thank you for your feedback John. Just to correct you on an issue, the fire had been cleaned out (when you spoke to us the next morning we did check - the glass door to the firs had not been cleaned, but the fire box itself had been). There was kindling and timber in the camphor box adjacent to the... More

Great little motel conveniently located directly opposite excellent bowling club/bistro. As we stayed early August, the overnight temperature dropped to -4 degrees so the electric blankets & comfy bed were welcome. Scads of hot water in the large bathroom. As it is right on the highway there was a bit of traffic noise late at night & early morning but... More

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
