Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had a twin room with 2 Queen beds. Beds were comfortable & the room was quiet. The bathroom was a disappointment. I walked in & my sock got wet due to water leaking out of the shower base ( we hadn't used it at this stage). Floor was filthy, mould in shower grout, hair in the corners, broken light over vanity, no towel rails or toilet roll holder (all had broken off) & to top it off there was someone else's used facewasher screwed up on top of the shower screen!

We stayed one night here after a friend’s birthday nearby. Starting off with the positive: - room was clean - bathrooms have just been renovated and are really nice - air con is cold - close to shopping centre But still… this motel is waaaay overpriced for what it is. Each room opens out onto the parking lot littered with cigarette butts etc and then there is a random small pool in the middle that gets locked up whenever the owners feel like it. Also, full disclosure, we were warned if we got locked out of our room there would be a fee. Then, of course, we proceeded to get locked out of our room with 3x small children sleeping inside. My husband contacted the owners who said they would bring the key for us. Forty minutes later of anxious waiting …. Nothing. My husband once again contacted the owners who, it turns out, actually live ON the property and hadn’t bothered to come and give us our key. (We were waiting at our room instead of at the closed reception desk.) They literally had to walk down the stairs to give us a new key and not only charged us $100 for the pleasure, but didn’t come to our room when we weren’t there but went back upstairs to continue watching TV! We were staying in a family room so they were definitely aware we had kids. Families, don’t be tempted by the promise of a pool … look elsewhere.

Response from Kirstine Roadley, Other at Old Maitland Inn
Responded 2 Feb 2023
Thank you for your review. To clarify, you booked with an online travel agent, which is always more expensive than booking with the property direct. A large percentage of the 'overpriced' tariff you paid, went to China as commission. The pool hours are noted in the rooms, and we also gave you the times on check in. This you failed to disclose in your review. When your husband rang the after hours emergency number, he was told to stay at the office as he did not mention his name or room number or even which property he was calling from. We manage, not own, two. When my husband attended the office he can see on the cameras which property the guest is calling from. When he didn't see anyone waiting as advised, after waiting ten minutes, he could only assume the guest calling had located their access card. After hours is just that. We are parents too, so disturbing our family and having been warned about locking yourself out, the fee was applied. We trust you'll find suitable alternate accommodation should your travels bring you back to Maitland.

Stayed here for two nights while attending a family event in Maitland. Very nice motel, clean and comfortable. Staff very friendly and accommodating. Loved the amenities provided for booking direct with the motel (which I always try to do). We would stay here again if in the area.

This motel stop is a "must" if travelling on the New England Highway. Beautiful well equipped rooms with a pool in the middle of the grounds plus hosts, Paul and Kirstine Roadley, are people who will help their guests in every possible way. I had a very sick husband and they took charge, talking to him whilst we waited for the ambulance, organising food for when we returned from the hospital after 11 pm and even waiting to greet us when we finally came back at midnight. They were truly fantastic and I cannot recommend the place enough.

We stayed here last week for 4 days. It had everything that we needed. Attended a function at the Club Maitland so motel was only a few minutes walk away. Staff were friendly, bed was super comfy but most important was that the rooms were CLEAN.

I'm writing this for my mum (she's in her seventies, not internet savvy) and she wants people to know she was very happy with her stay. The people who run Old Maitland Inn are really lovely people. They picked her up from the train station and dropped her off again next day. The room was clean, bed comfortable, and she really liked the room service dinner. And it was quiet and she'd stay there again!
