I got lucky because Newcastle (under $350) was booked out. So I did the search and found the Sleepy Hill Motor Inn. They would have bent over backwards to make my stay even better if that was possible. Excellent beds. Excellent complementary breakfast. No longer on the main Northern highway.

Stayed for one night, chose location due to closeness to Williamtown airport for an early morning flight. I understand there are a variety of rooms to choose from I had #2 which is in a courtyard around the back of the main block so very quiet with no traffic noise. The room was updated and this was managed reasonably well....

Very quiet motel, extremely clean, lovely managers who couldn't do enough to keep us happy during our 3 day stay in the 44 plus days we have just had in Feb 2017, Great breakfast included in the breakfast room, over looking to sparking pool and BBQ area.

I'm a light sleeper so I loved that this quiet motel was located well away from the highway, unlike many other options in the area. We had a room at the back of the complex (extra quiet) with a comfortable queen and single bed - perfect for myself and two children. It was an extremely hot day but the air...

Stayed at this place after booking last minute. Owner was lovely and upgraded us to a newly refurbished room. Included breakfast which was simple but very nice. My only criticism is that the location is too far away from any beaches and tourist attractions. Wi-Fi was available but very weak so Netflix wouldn't play. In a better location, this place...

Thankyou bjholiday for the review. We are not the owners , we manage the motel for them. We are sorry you feel we are too far away from the beaches....this is something we can't change.

We unexpectedly needed to find a place and this presented well from the exterior, rooms off the main road which is good for sleeping. Small but comfy room with all the basics. Close to mainstreet shops for takeaways. Did include a light breakfast although we left prior to this. The main criticism was it was $10 cheaper online to book...

Thankyou lisa p for writing this review. Sometimes the booking sites will run specials that we can't control.
