A beautiful, clean, warm and comfortable motel. Could not fault anything. Staff was superb. The room was spacious and clean. Breakfast was lovely. Will definitely stay there again. I have not stayed in such a spacious and clean motel room.

We have never stayed in such a clean motel. Service was friendly and very helpful as we had to park our trailer overnight. They helped with dinner suggestions close by. The breakfast was great and very convinent for travelling families. Thanks for a lovely stay.

Thank you for such a wonderful review!!! I will print this out and put it in the girls folders this morning so they get the same buzz I got when I read it. The girls work tirelessly to keep the standard of cleanliness at the level they would expect in their own homes. Parking is one thing we don't have... More

Thankyou for your very kind comments in your review. Breakfast is important and a little help in getting that perfect start to the day can often be all you need to kick-start it off.

A surprisingly comfortable stop off on the long drive south from FNQ. Although this is an older hotel, it has been recently refreshed and is far enough back off the road to be refreshingly quiet, providing a good nights rest. The management was friendly and VERY obliging, even offering a choice of four milks including a lactose free alternative. Free... More

We found this "gem" on the internet and called from the M1, very helpful man had us a triple room ready by the time we arrived 10 minutes later. Room was modern, clean and tidy.

Thank you so much for your lovely review. The motel owners don't advertise their motels relying on word of mouth as the best form of advertisement, so your one will certainly help to get the 'word' out there. The 'funky' art is fantastic, brightening the rooms and giving the rooms a modern, fresh and new feel to them. The tourist... More

This motel had a really comfortable bed which for us is the most important feature of a motel. this one was very very good and comfortable.

We spent one night at Sleepy Hill Motor Inn as an overnight stop while driving between Wollongong and Brisbane. This is an older style motel, but the rooms are very clean and well appointed, with good mattresses giving a good night's sleep. The buffet continental breakfast was basic, but very satisfactory. The pool and BBQ area looked lovely, though we... More

Thank you for your feedback and time with this review. We get very positive feedback regarding the mattresses' here at the motel which must make the owners (Maja & Andrew) very happy as they re invest so much back into the motel. When travelling long distances a good nights sleep is paramount. We keep breakfast simple and uncomplicated but with... More
