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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Travelled here for a weekend away for a family members birthday. On the outside it appears nice. The dining room/reception area to check in presents a nice expectation. But then you get your room. Walking in, I felt like I was back in the late 80s. The decor was outdated and tacky. The bed was hard as a rock and the amenities were lacking. Decided to have a shower and wash the 5.5hr drive away. While in there, the pipes started gurgling noticeably. I didn't pay much mind to it, but when I got out, rhe water had come out of the floors drain and flooded the bathroom to just under ankle height. It had flowed out of the bathroom to the front door and the place now resembled a lagoon. Over the space of 10 minutes the water slowly went back down the drain but something was clearly wrong. I went to sleep to the sweet sound of the toilet making gurgling noises. We read the room guide to find receptions number as it was 10pm and report it, found out what number to call and couldn't because there was no phone in the room lol The next morning we went for breakfast in the dining room. I will say it was a nice variety and selection, the fruit was fresh and I left happy. While in the reception area, I made note of the pipe issue with them and was moved to another room. When I went in the new room, the floors were stained badly, it smelt funky and the bathroom was in disgusting condition. Blue rust surrounded the metal soap holder stuck on the wall, black gooey grime was in the corners of the shower and to be honest, you felt more disgusting AFTER your shower. Air conditioner rattled at night, but it was too hot to not have on and the bed was again hard as a rock. All in all, I'd never stay again, don't waste your money. Find somewhere better 1 minute down the road.

Hotel's Favourite
Had a great 2 night stay at Best Western Sanctuary Inn in Tamworth. We were upgraded to a Premier Queen room which had a Queen bed and a single bed. The room was quite spacious and very clean and in a good state of repair. The bed was very comfortable and had good quality linen and a great pillow selection. Our only complaint would be that there was only 1 chair in the room. One of us had to sit on the bed to eat our room service meal or to watch television. Parking was available close to our room. The location is very good - quiet at night but very close to the town centre and the Country Music Hall of Fame. The restaurant was classy and had a good selection to choose from. The food was excellent and the staff were very helpful and knowledgeable, assisting in our choice of diabetic appropriate food. We also appreciated the free use of a washing machine and dryer.

Great room, comfy bed, huge shower and beautiful finishes . food not as good as expected from a rated restaurant and high prices . Needs a blind over the window on top of door due to the verandah light shining in all night. Mini bar requires a re-vamp more suited to non beer/wine drinkers .

Would be nice if they dropped their rates for bona fide artists for the festival. Understand they have to make the most of what's on offer. It seems other Hotels have dropped their rates for artists and return customers. Pleasant Hotel and cleaning staff were excellent - kept the place tidy and surprisingly no traffic noise despite location. Nice pool.

I was really happy with my stay, the bed was comfortable the shower was amazing and warm. I was really happy with how clean the room was. The only thing I got upset about was when myself and my partner were locked out of our room because they card key wouldn’t work but that didn’t stuff up my holiday.

Great, clean and tidy pet friendly accommodation with a good included breakfast. Pups loved the off leash area where they could go and burn after energy after travelling all day. The continental breakfast can be delivered to you for a small fay which may getting ready to leave a lot easier than going to the dining room

I have stayed at this motel on a number of occasions and normally I would have rated my stay higher but I found reception very “ office like” the mattress in room 3 has outlived its usefulness, even the occasional rotation may have helped unfortunately a very uncomfortable night, by morning there was an infestation of ants in the bathroom crawling over benches and disappearing in the left hand corner of the mirror. The continental breakfast below expectations given our past experiences, could not even get a decent cup of coffee only the basic satchels that were available in the room. Basic minor improvements would make a difference.
