Budget motel, that had just been painted and stunk of paint fumes with no way to air out the room as there was only 1 window not enough circulation and the AC was broken. Was promised free wi fi but there was none so that was another disappointment. Rooms were small but clean, parking outside door. Overall the motels ok... More

False!!! If you are going to write a review please ensure that you are being honest, that includes your name. We haven't had any Bill F stay at our motel so I question this review. The room in question has only had 3 different guests in it since being painted and not one was called Bill F. We have 1... More

Overall the actual motel was well presented. The room was a good size and the bed very comfortable. I was in room 11 and it had everything I needed, aircon, fridge, kettle, toaster, crockery and cutlery, iron etc. There was adequate desk space for working on a laptop plus plenty of power points for charging devices. The bathroom was a... More

Stayed here with my husband and three children. We stayed in a family room which comprised of one double bed and a set of bunks, which wasn't a problem for us as our two younger children shared the bottom bunk. Our room had a descent sized flatscreen TV, air conditioner, fridge, toaster and kettle. We also had loads of power... More

You get what you pay for. Very reasonable rates just south of Newcastle and close to my destination. Very friendly checkin. The rooms are very dated, but the bed was comfortable and clean. Generally it seems that Belmont accommodation is from a certain era.

Very friendly staff who accommodated our coffee debt by making a coffee on their personal espresso machine and provided a delicious sweet accompaniment to go with it. This reception is the best I have ever experienced! The room was smallish but perfectly adequate, very clean and had lots of bench space. Bed was comfortable and we both slept very well.... More

Golden Chain? I'm sorry but this motel is not and never has been affiliated with the chain. There are so many motels in this area and 2 other motels either are currently or have been with The Golden Chain in the past. Given the time frame of a year ago, it's easy to see how you can confuse one motel... More

The rooms were old but tidy. Some other clientelle had a loud foulmouth fight in the car park for 1.5 hours starting at 4:30am. The owners did not intervene or call the Police. No sleep was had during this time. We had travelled that day and were travelling again the next morning. VERY unimpressed. We were too scared to leave... More

Thank you for your review. Unfortunately I can not take responsibility for someone else's behaviour. We were not made aware of any arguing between the couple until the morning. A simple phone call to the motel number would have alerted us and we would have been more than happy to intervene. We do not live in the motel, and as... More
