Stayed at this motor inn to attend a concert at Bimbadgen. Booked months in advance, but when I contacted the place a few days before we were due to arrive, to confirm, the owner was very aggressive over the phone, quoted incorrect pricing (to what we had originally been quoted), and basically said, 'I will give you another headache, and...

Our room on the top floor was very comfortable. I think it had been refurbished recently as we had stayed in a room downstairs before which was rather drab. A definite improvement on this stay. A very handy location - easy to find and close to take away food outlets if required.

One bedroom apartment was roomy, clean, and quiet as it was at the back of the property. Restaurant is acceptable but not great. Breakfast was just OK with a limited selection, but no better or worse than other motels in the area i have tried. TV was small for the spacious living room. Refrigerator rattled.

Arrived at 7 pm last night and quoted $170.00 for the night. Upon questioning the value the answer was the miners are prepared to pay this. Ended up getting it for $150.00 for a dull but comfortable room on the main highway. Food!!!!! Steak sandwich $24.00 ordered medium got blood and was charged $8.00 for room service. Cap it all...

I stayed here on business in October 2013 for 1 night. I had passed this place plenty of times over the years and when I chose to stay in Singleton for the night to break up a trip from Sydney to Tamworth, it was Francis Phillip Motor Inn that came to mind. The rooms are very spacious, if somewhat sparsely... More

I was booked in by a business colleague, I did notice many other motels were fully booked that night. Yes there was a site office in place of the usual reception but the lady and cat were friendly and prompt to get me signed in in. The room was spacious, clean and warm. Large spa and a separate toilet shower... More

Good reviews on Tripadvisor led me to choose this motel. If circumstances had been normal at the motel I expect I'd be giving it a positive review. The rooms are spacious, the heating works well (important in this region in winter), and the resident cat is chummy. However, unfortunately for the owners/management, there had been a serious fire at the... More

Stayed in $169 Standard room with Double Bed (should be Queen really), but has nice pillows! Although on the main highway the rooms have double glazed windows, thus the truck noise is dulled out. Room is a good size. Internet is $15 extra. Free newspapers is good. Just single but comfortable lounge chairs to watch 32" LCD TV, but no... More

I had no plans to stay in Singleton - but glad I did as the Francis Phillip Motor Inn provided me with a comfortable and enjoyable stay. The rooms are huge - very clean - modern and comfortable. I had a double bed and I think a room of this size should have a queen - but a good rest... More
