“Motor inn experience at Raymond Terrace”
Reviewed February 6, 2012

the four days that I stayed over at the Sleepy Hill Motor was as good as being at my own residential address , the rooms where at a high Quality with both bedding and and the high quality of cleaning and over apperance of the swimming pool and contenital breakfast was a bonus to start a busy day ahead ?? Kind regards to Mija and crew ?
Cheers Peter & John from Bathurst

We travel to Coff Harbour from Canberra about twice a year and like to break the trip up by staying aroud Newcastle. On our last trip we found Sleepy Hill by accident and this time we stayed on purpose!

It is easy to find (important when you're tired!), right on the main road, though very quiet in the rooms. The two rooms we've stayed in were large and nicely furnished with very comfortable beds and nice fresh linen. The pool is wonderful - large and covered on one end, with a spa attached.

The manager is welcoming, with an upfront, quirky and helpful manner. She has been very friendly to us both times we've stayed and was helpful in suggesting places to eat as well as turning on the spa for us and providing our daughter with floaties. When we were offerred milk for our room I asked for soy milk but was advised they didn't have any; the next morning, however, there was soy milk available for breakfast, presumably provided just for me. I was touched and impressed by this service.

The breakfast itself is quite varied. It is provided in the dining room (not your hotel room as a previous reviewer seemed to presume). Both times the TV has been tuned to news which I personally don't like to watch in the morning (too loud and violent) but then I'm not a morning person...

Possibly the only negative thing I could say is that the bathroom desperately needed re-grouting and the light fittings needed replacing (grubby flouros). Also the shower head was far too low; okay for children and hobbits but not so good if you're an adult wishing to wash your hair. However, the bathroom was spotless and the water was hot so I wasn't unhappy.

As an aside, we ate at the Junction Inn both times. Slightly on the expensive side but great food both times and it was lovely sitting on the deck with the sun setting over the river.

We would thoroughly recommend this motel. The room was clean, fresh, reasonably spacious, and tastefully appointed. It has facilities now not often found in international hotels, so that there is a hairdryer, bar fridge, and tea and coffee making facilities. A continental breakfast is included, in the restaurant.

Nice place, big rooms, very good appointments, very friendly staff, reception actually acknowledged my existance when waiting to book in. helpful in organising taxi's didnt try restaurant, went to party locally, quiet location. I had a corner room, so I could sit out and not worry anyone when I wanted a smoke, however, I was blocked in by other guests cause of the corner parking space. Some people are 'Brain Dead' thats not the Motels fault, my only complaint, No Brekky, mine went missing???? so may be a good idea to check fridge or cupboards when you check in, dont be like me, and wait till the morning, to find out No Munchies.

Room Tip: Check to make sure you have the continental brekky.
