I booked acconodation three months prior to our stay, this was not our first stay there. Four weeks prior to our stay I rang and altered the booking, one of our party was no longer coming. I was informed I could cancel the cheapest room, which I did. Over the next three weeks I contacted the motel to ensure our... More

On a recent rushed unplanned trip to Melbourne and organised plans coming unstuck big time on route from Newcastle we needed a particular type of Motel for three nights. Driving a Hi-Ace Hi-top long wheel base van packed full of our son's furniture ready to move into a new apartment on the Saturday only to be told on that Saturday... More

First time at the Bell Motor Inn. I normally stay in the South Eastern suburbs but due to meetings had to find a place closer to the airport. The Bell fits this bill with a fairly painless and easy run to the airport, and not too bad a drive to the city for that matter. Check in was friendly and... More

Recently stayed at this motel.Room was clean ,comfortable and surprisingly quiet considering its location. Maybe an older style motel but is very reasonably priced with adequate parking and security.Free continental breakfast supplied.

Just spent two nights at the weekend and couldn't find fault. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the room was extremely quiet and adequate for our needs. Sure it is an older style hotel but for the money and location for us was outstanding, especially given the ample free onsite parking and complimentary breakfast. Will certainly be staying again.

The room and facilities fitted my needs perfectly. While not a modern building, it was pretty clean. The bed was comfortable, ample pillows and blanketing. Staff & management very helpful and friendly, and know the area well. It was nice to be able to have a chat with people when far from home. Chris handled a difficult guest very politely... More
