the first time we stayed we were upgraded to a newly refurbished room. It was lovely. Since we have stayed in older rooms that were spotless with very comfortable beds. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly.

Stayed two nights in a budget room. The cost was $130 per night, booked directly with the motel, which included breakfast (cannot comment on breakfast as I had to leave each morning before the dining room opened). Check in was quick and efficient. The room was smallish, but perfectly adequate, very clean and comfortable. Situated at the back of the...

Thank you SMTas..........A great and informative review. We are sorry we couldn't spend more time with you at breakfast.

My husband and I stayed in a standard room; number 6. I mention the room number because it is a tired room in need of a facelift; particularly around the front door/fridge area. In our opinion, the price charge was too much for a room in need of a renovation. We have previously stayed at Sleepy Hill in other rooms...

Thank you DormouseTidings. Room 6 is only ever sold as a Budget room ....not a Standard room.........as it is waiting for a renovation. At $120.00 per night including breakfast for two people ($125.00 if through an agent) is a very reasonable rate. We generally explain to guests as they book that the room is a little tired. If you booked...

The carpet by the was is threadbare and separating, the door has had some temporary repair work carried out that should be completed. Exposed electrical...
