NRMA arranged for me to stay as my car was broken down. What a great place! Close to town BUT so quiet with a comfy bed had a great sleep. Old style rooms with modern touches & a complimentary continental breakfast. No evening meals available but plenty of restaurants a short drive away - or a walk of a 1km... More

Thank you for this review Grant N. We hope all is good with your car now and you are back to normal. Having breakfast included is very handy when you travel as you don't have to worry about taking lots with you. The walk for dinner is great if you feel like some fresh air or the local taxi company... More

We used this place as a base for exploring the local area. We had a very friendly welcome so booked a second night on the spot. We stayed in a standard queen room, which was small but adequate for our needs. The only criticism was that we could hear talking in the next room. The next night, we were upgraded... More

Thankyou so much for taking the time to write this review. Garry and I (Managers) were on holidays at the time you stayed so we can't take the credit for your positive stay. Jo and her husband Shaun were here looking after the motel for the owners, and we have received numerous positive comments on how they looked after everyone.... More

Thank you for the 'Excellent' review vern2810. We are taking our room attendants out for lunch as a treat for their tireless and dedicated work in maintaining such a high standard in the rooms.

Sleepy Hill- what can I say? Great night's sleep in a very comfortable bed, very clean room with good provisions, friendly/courteous managers and one of the most comprehensive continental breakfasts going! It is also well placed for travellers, just off the Pacific Highway and close to a range of food outlets. Oh- and the price is very reasonable too. So... More

This was just an easy and very pleasant stay. The rooms are clean and very adequate. I actually really enjoyed staying in what reminded me of childhood motel holiday stays.

The room was large with a very large TV, the bed was medium but not hard, not soft, the bathroom was also large and the shower pressure was the best I've ever experienced, better then home and home is...

Michelle and Gary are the best. Nothing is a trouble to them. Rooms are spotless, pool and grounds very well kept, plus great complimentary breakfast. Definitely a home away from home atmosphere. No hesitation in recommending Sleepy Hill. Thank you, Jenny Brett.
