The Sandstock Motor Inn is adjacent to the Bowling Club and only a short walk to Coles supermarket. The owners were very helpful and changed our room when we said that we had trouble with the bath cum shower. Room was comfortable and well furnished and the owners provided windshield cleaning equipment. Great value for money - we'd definitely stay...

The best motel we have stayed in for the price. Lovely spacious room with large TV. Exceptionally clean. Nice extra touches like car windscreen washers & cloths for car. Good parking spaces-not too small. You can tell the managers take pride in this motel. Close to everything in town. Only negative the bed was a little too soft, felt like...

Stayed for two nights at the Sandstock Motor Inn. Room was spacious and inviting, with comfortable beds and curtains that blocked out all light. Location is excellent, with the town centre only a short walk away and the bowling club across the road. Owners are exceptionally friendly and happy to assist with any problems you may experience. Wifi is on...

Room had a lounge, large TV, great wifi, micro wave, toaster, kettle, good quality linen, very very clean, quiet, close to food outlets of many different styles. This room even had a bathtub, so relaxing after driving all day. A huge plus. Friendly helpful...

A weekend away incorporating a day on the green, middle of town accommodation, across the road from Coles and most importantly the Bowling club, and the tourist information centre. Room was clean and tidy, staff happy to oblige with requests and a friendly hello and good bye on arrival and departure. Good place to stay, with good parking spaces.

Excellent choice for accommodation to attend the Day on the Green. Centrally located and next to plenty of food/drink venues. Clean, tidy rooms. Ample parking. Reasonable rates. Friendly reception. I would stay here again.

We found the motel clean and comfortable, but beginning to look and feel a little dated, and certainly at the more expensive end of the value for money spectrum. The fan activating with the light in the bathroom is always a negative for us, as is having to wash dishes in the handbasin. The supply of a plastic bowl could...

Thanks Bruce for your comments. We are currently updating our rooms but have not completed all the rooms as yet. We provide daily housekeeping services, which includes washing up so our guest don't have to. As our bathrooms don't have opening windows, for ventilation purposes the fans must come on when the bathroom is being used.

Very comfortable after days of bushwalking and evenings at the Armadale club....I didn't order the breakfast but if I had read the reviews I might have....main minor criticism is the air freshener smell..essential oils might be a better choice :-)

Thanks Madelaine for staying at our motel when you were in Armidale. We have since changed our air freshener and hope you enjoy it next time you are in Armidale.

Stayed here for a few nights again and recently as we always do and were greeted by relief managers who did as great a job as the owners usually do. Highly recommended you stay here when in Armidale, the location of the motel along with the Bowling Club directly across the road makes dining and getting around all to easy!...

The room was in need of an update, had an overriding smell, including air freshner through the bed. Very bad smell in toilet shower. Have stayed in other rooms and they were acceptable.Overall did not feel clean.
