Great place to stay for business. Staff are welcoming and friendly. Restaurant onsite serves wide variety of meals, all good value. Would recommend.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights recently, and I was a bit disappointed. While the common areas are quite nice, the room we were in was quite dated. The bed was a bit hard for my liking, you had to wait a couple of minutes for the hot water to kick in (which we were informed of at check-in), and the heat lamps in the bathroom didn't work. At $140 a night in an inconvenient location, I think it is ridiculously overpriced for what you get. Luckily, we weren't the ones paying for it!

My wife and I stayed here last night. We pre-booked a room before leaving home and on arrival we were greeted with a smile, warm welcome and were given some very helpful information. The motel rooms are nice and clean, beds are soft, warm and comfortable. We chose a package which included room and buffet breakfast. Breakfast was well set out with cerials, toast, bacon, sausages, mushrooms, scrambled eggs,etc. Our chef was a very happy lady who made sure everyone was happy. Check in and out was quick and easy. We'll stay here again.

Room Tip: rooms on the western side get the morning sun, nice just to sit and enjoy

We enjoyed our overnight stopover en route to Canberra from Armidale. It is on a very busy highway but we were not effected by traffic noise except in the Dining Room in the morning. The rooms were comfortable, with all necessary mod cons and free wi-fi, which worked well. Meals were excellent with home made triffle as a sweet. We were on a small group tour and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Very quite air-conditioner. Would stay again, if in the area.

Room Tip: A room towards the back of the property would be an advantage from traffic noise, if this was a prob...

The motel advertises "free wireless broadband internet", it is free, it is wireless, but hardly broadband and you couldn't even call it internet! Slow, flakey, consistent drop outs. The slow internet made me a bit late for dinner, I got to the restaurant just before 8:30 and was turned away, even if I made a choice there and then!

There is no Austar, it is advertised, but it is not there, I flick through all channels 3 times and saw only free to air, there was no instructions to do anything special to get it.

2 soaps and one shampoo is stingy, towels are threadbare, air con is ancient.

The room was old and crusty. Everything needs renovating. This place is $140/night during the week and the Mercure up the road can be had cheaper for a better room.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else.

Stayed the w/end for the Rod Stewart concert. Rooms were spacious and clean, as was bathroom - we even had the toilet paper folded nicely again the next day!
Dined in the restaurant, and had a complimentary drink, plus the servings were enormous. The Omelette I ordered for breakfast the next day was so big and fluffy - never seen one that big before! Buffet breakfast on the Sunday was also great, and was replenished constantly, even after 9.15a.m., which is a bonus for those who like to sleep in, like us! Top marks for employing an elderly lady to help out in the dining room. My only beef is that the pillows were very flat, but luckily I take my own feather one with me.The desk staff were lovely. There is an Aldi and Woolies, plus other shops across the road, as well as a bowling club. Great value.

Room Tip: Make sure it is cleaned thoroughly and nicely.

Although the rooms were basic they were clean and spacious. However, the dining room was under renovation so no kitchen facilities. Felt we should have been told about this when we booked. Paid $140 per night, felt we should have maybe received some sort of discount as no restaurant facilities or room service available. The female receptionist was very pleasant at all times. A bit mean when dishing out shampoo!! One tiny bottle for two people. Had to as housekeeper for another!! Convenient to Hunter Valley and shops. If you are thinking of booking check if renovations are complete first. Recommend a visit to the Art Gallery in Maitland for sure.
