Great friendly and comfortable. On arrival a friendly greeting, advice about where we could get some dinner. Room basic motel but very clean, crisp clean sheets quiet. The continental breakfast was another great surprise, my wife is a celiac and we expected not much variety, well the amount of Gluten Free cereal that was on offer was brilliant, even down... More

Very quick stop over with two small children on our way home from holidays. Clean, comfortable and good sized room for a family of four. Really excited on arrival to see our room was a non-smoking room, opened the windows up for light and fresh air, but very annoyed when the guests next door sat out the front and started... More

Hi Lorene, Thanks for taking the time to review Sleepy Hill and we're glad you enjoyed the room and cleanliness. Yes all of our rooms are non smoking (yay), and people sometimes choose to smoke outside their rooms. Not ideal, but not illegal or prohibited either. I'm sorry you had this negative blip, but hope the positive outweighs and we... More

Arrived with family on Christmas day and left a few days later. The room was clean and quiet. Breakfast was lovely. The pool area is beautiful. Considering the time of year the room rates were fantastic. Highly recommend! Very warm and friendly staff as well.

We booked the Sleepy Hill Motor Inn Raymond Terrace 3-4 months ago for a stop over on the way to QLD. We were placed in the oldest part of the motel. It was shabby and very dated. The floors were not clean. The shower bases were filthy, white grout lines were black, the majority of the people in our group... More

In response to this review: Regardless of when you booked, you were placed in the 2 rooms you booked online. The Motel is all the same vintage and the rooms you stayed in were refurbished in 2013. The grout in the bathroom is a cement coloured grout. So it was never white. House staff reported that all showers were used... More

Travelling from the Gold Coast to Bateman's Bay by myself was a bit of a nervous experience so to have a great place to stay in the middle of the trip was very relaxing.

Lovely to have breakfast provided in room overlooking the pool, crossing paths with other travellers. Great room and beds. Warm, friendly hosts. Walked to Junction Inn hotel for meal overlooking beautiful river. Small detour off the highway and quiet and relaxing.

The owner/managers set the tone at this neat, clean, comfortable and quiet motel. The rooms are well sized and more than adequate for travelling guest needs. The complimentary breakfast available in the dining room is an added bonus which further adds to the appeal of the motel.

We stayed at Sleepy Hill for 1 night while on business. The room was clean enough but the bed was absolutely woeful. It was the worst bed I've ever slept on in 50 years.
