Don't stay here! Overpriced, no wifi, filthy carpet and bed quilt had stains on it. Room was not clean with spider webs in bathroom. Very disappointing will be staying elsewhere next time I visit Armidale.

Great location on a main road yet convenient to most attractions. The dining experience was first class and room service prompt and friendly. Contact between our first enquiry and eventual departure was quick, polite and relevant.

Our stay at the Country Comfort Armidale was so disappointing. We booked a 2 bedroom suite. The decor was dated and the beds were old and uncomfortable, which was fine for the price I suppose, but the room was dusty and grimy, as though it hadn't been cleaned properly for a long time. They were too cheap to have bottles of shower gel or cakes of soap - just a shower gel dispenser in the shower, which ran out during our stay. The hot tap leaked, which was dangerous for the small child we had with us, and several light globes were blown.
Even worse, when we brought these things to the attention of the managers and subsequently Country Comfort head office, they did not seem to care at all. I would never stay there again.

Room Tip: Just don't stay there

Great place with a great location in the heart of town. Staff are extremely helpful in fact they went beyond what they needed to do for a customer. Rooms are cozy and the restuarant is very nice. Will definitely stay again

We stayed one night in a luxury spa suite, We were on our way back home from the coast tired and worn our from long traveling hours, We thought we would find some local internet terminals to book something online which was the country confort. We found upon entering the room that the photos we viewed online had been very misleading.As of first impression of the room that it was nothing less then of a horrible old run down outdated smelly room of the early 90s or older.
The state of the carpet in the hallways and our room was just beyond disgusting rather disturbing actually.
The lamp shades were old worn and dirty, spider webs and dust above and around the ceiling, The air conditioning loud and clearly needed either replacing or serviceing and not in very good working condtion at all,
The bathroom had the previous guests hair on the floor ''revolting'' The shower had a very low shower head which makes it difficult to wash your hair which is a right pain. The bedspread i don't think had ever been into a washing machine was smelly and stained which we took straight off the bed. The spa bath was pretty disturbing which required us to run some detol from our first aid kit through it before we used it and a good clean. The cupboards were stained and dirty toaster and kettle were dirty and in need of replacing, The building had Blown light bulbs through out the buildings hallways. At the end of the day The country comfort armadale is nothing short of a basic 3 star motel although the 3 star hotels are often still much cleaner then this appauling place. The country comfort simply does not live up to its name or expectations one would expect that they boast about in online bookings. The good things were reasonable parking but lighting and security were an issue in the dark, The laundry had free washer/dryer. and it had a games room for children to play. I strongly advise againest staying here or checking out a room before checking in to see if it meets your expectations so your not disappointed.

Room Tip: find somewhere else if possible.
