What a lovely motel! The beds are amazingly comfortable! The showers, Oh my goodness! Not water saving heads, proper shower heads with great pressure. Michelle and Garry were excellent. Nothing is ever too hard for them and everything is done with a big smile and a conversation that flows like talking to friends. The only problem I have with the... More

Wow!!! What a great review Mary P! We really enjoyed having you here with us again and your girls have grown so much since your last stay and were so well behaved. It is so good catching up over breakfast with our return guests and as you say it is like chatting with friends. We look forward to you coming... More

My husband & I always enjoy our stay at Sleepy Hill. Usually come twice a year for a specific purpose. Beds are extremely comfortable and the whole motel is immaculately clean. Continental breakfast is a wonderful extra for our needs. Our hosts Michelle & Garry are there to help you with any request.

Thank you Di for your lovely review! We always LOVE to see return guests and over the time we have been here we have got to know some very well. We enjoy having a catch up and chat over breakfast with the 'return guests' as well as meeting the 'new first time guests'. Being born and bred locals, both Garry... More

The queen bed was very hard. I had a sore back in the morning which I don't normally suffer from. Manager was nice about it how ever. Parking is tight.If money allows I would suggest a face lift for the rooms.

I must say I was shocked when you mentioned the hardness of the bed in your room as 98% of our guests rave about the comfort of them. We even have one guest in particular come to stay periodically when his back is playing up as he swears our mattresses bring him relief..............and he has stayed in a different room... More

Thank you for such a wonderful review. Both Garry and I take our role as Managers at Sleepy Hill very seriously and we do try to run the motel as though it were our own.

We stopped here on the way up the coast. We have 1 year old twins so were traveling with cots (and the kitchen sink!). The owners could not have been more accommodating in making sure the cots would fit in the room and that the twins were comfortable. The rooms are dated but beautifully clean. Had a microwave and fridge... More

We are so pleased you were comfy and happy here at the Sleepy Hill. Travelling at any time can be hectic and tense but travelling with infant twins can be harrowing I would imagine!! I have always maintained that you can cope with anything if you get enough sleep so having the second room for the cots must have helped... More

This motel is very handy to Newcastle airport. It is on the outskirts of the township and therefore very quiet. You will need to drive a short distance for your evening meal. Everything at the motel was scrupulously clean. We stayed in the standard room, where heating was just adequate. I thought it a tad overpriced ($140) for mid winter... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review for our motel. It is always exciting to get one. The room attendants work above and beyond to maintain the 'just cleaned' feel to the rooms. We are sorry you didn't get to work the air conditioner to your satisfaction......Garry would have been more than happy to sort... More

We stayed over night on our way south. Our room was very spacious,clean and comfortable. The staff were outstanding, making us feel very welcome, with a great local knowledge. Breakfast was well laid out and user friendly. The pool area was lovely, even if it was too cold to try the water. (We were there in July). Would definitely stay... More
