Have stayed several times and always faultless - very clean and comfortable Close to plenty of options for eating and only a short stroll to the centre of the city. Would deem the Sandstock as reasonably quiet in regards to road traffic and a good value stay

We chose this motel because it was small and all ground level. The owners run the motel and they were lovely. The rooms are old but they are well presented with room to move. Within walking distance to eateries and shopping.

I guess bad experiences with inconsiderate guests have turned the owners/managers into electricity police and towel nazis. There are several signs in the room about not using towels for make-up, muddy boots and car windscreens - and turning off electricity. I'm not a fan of these little signs when you're paying a decent rate for accommodation. Despite that, it was... More

Last minute booking and from beginning everything was excellent . Accommodation was very comfortable with no issues. Short walk to eateries and shopping centre. Very hard to get today for closeness of these facilities. Recommend to all to try.

Travelled again and stayed with the lovely folks at the Sandstock. Without a doubt the most welcoming and centrally located accommodation in Armidale. The rooms are quiet, clean, comfortable and have everything needed when travelling. We won't stay anywhere else in Armidale and will most definitely be back.

Just spent 3 nights at the Sandstock Motor Inn. The rooms were great, very comfortable and clean. The staff were all very friendly and willing to help in any way they could. Will definitely be going back. Great location. You can walk to the mall, bowling club, horse track local hotels and restaurants

A nice clean well appointed motel with everything suppllied,even buckets of water and washers for the windscreens.. Nice clean rooms, very quiet. It is right opposite the bowls club and the local RSL is in the same road, within walkingh distance. Free wifi (we find this a must when travelling). The lady receptionist very friendly and helpful with local information.
