I wasn't expecting too much from this motel and wow, should I be eating my hat! All of them! The owners of the Sapphire Motel, David and Deb, are two of the best people you can ever hope to meet. Not only are they friendly, kind and fun loving - they provide a quality service that is above and beyond what anyone could or would expect when staying in this beautiful country town away from home. The rooms are comfortable, the food fantastic and the service absolutely outstanding. After spending one week at the Sapphire Motel I can honestly say I welcome the opportunity to be heading back this way and I will definately be stopping in. Thank you David and Deb for your outstanding hospitality. You guys rock!

Stayed on business for three nights if I did not have to leave I would not have, the room was fantastic the meals delivered to the room were fantastic good fresh home style meals.
The owners Debbie and David Traynor are absolutely the most fantastic hosts I have met after 3 minutes you are talking to old friends I cannot commend Debbie and David highly enough.
You can see why this motel has such a following of reps and travellers if you are travelling through or visiting the fabulous City of Inverell for a holiday you will be doing yourself a huge favour if ring Debbie or David Traynor and you are guaranteed an enjoyable stay ring and go for it VERY VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED !!!!!!!

The Sapphire Inn is a great place to stay. We found it clean, neat, tidy and comfortable with all mod cons. The Queen bed was very comfy so we return time & again. As seniors we look for a friendly place and Deb & David are the nicest of Host's, they are always ready to help should you need it. Being so close to town but not directly in it, makes it quiet, yet handy to everything. We certainly recommend staying here.

Stayed one night for business, was treated like an old friend. Lovely owners of the business. The room was great, very clean and comfortable with little things I enjoyed such as decent sized coffee cups, not white towels and a heater that was fantastic! Wonderful home cooked breakfast delivered to my room, and it was hot! Highly recommend!

Stayed in an executive room 1st week. Was comfortable, bed great I must say. Stayed in cottage 2nd week, it was home. The king bed wow, everything else like the 2 TVs, the kitchen, the lounge, the dining table, the quietness, simply awesome. The service from Deb & David is the best you will ever get. They deserve a star just for the service. Try the scotch fillet, not as good as the 1s in New Zealand but its good enough haha. Love this place.....

This motel is managed by friendly helpful people and is situated on the outskirts of the city. The room was a little on the small side but was extremely comfortable and clean. The bathroom had a large shower area with excellent pressure.
The internet was not working but our hosts went to great lengths to enable us to connect by cable. We would readily return if in Inverell.

The Sapphire City Motel provides travellers a home away from home old fashion hospitality. The rooms are filled with warmth for winter, the most comfortable beds. The rooms are well equipped with microwave, bar fridge and all the
Breakfast facilities, mod airconditioning, tv wifi and all the working travellers needs. If you need a longer stay cottages are available just ask on booking. This motels close to a bowling club and a short distance to the local RSM club. The Managers are most welcoming and nothing is too difficult to assist. The meals homecooked are excellent. Compliment t he meal with a local wine choice or one of Deb and Dave's selections. If you are on the road or work away often this is a home away from home. Enjoy the stay
