“Ok, but nothing special”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 November 2012

Stayed here recently as a stop over on our way to Melbourne. I had read the reviews on TripAdvisor previously and based on the ravings, this was going to be our first choice of places to stay around Raymond Terrace. Upon arriving, we were served and checked in by the guy owner (can't remember his name) but he was friendly enough. The standard room that we had was probably a little overpriced at $129 a night. The room consisted of a queen size bed, dresser, table and chairs, tv, mini kitchenette and separate bathroom. It was a good size room for a one night stay. The room did include free continental breakfast, however breakfast started from 7am and as this was a stop over on a very long trip, we left before 7am and therefore unfortunately could not utilise this feature. Other than that, the room was clean, had friendly service but was a touch overprice - I would expect to pay these types of prices within the city.

Very nice room, quiet and away from the highway. Breakfast was nice. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 was the smokers bin that was attached to the concrete directly outside our rear entrance. Fortunately only one smoker chose to utilise this while we were there. But really that was one too many. Please move this stupid thing!

Stopped on our way driving south for a family occasion. Very comfortable bed, clean rooms, recent facelift. Very friendly hosts who provide a good continental breakfast included with the fee. Busy motel. We lost our carpark when we went out to get dinner and had to park away from our room, but it was the beginning of school holidays. Lovely looking pool, but was too cold to enjoy it. I'd stop here again if I ever do another road trip that way.

We enjoyed a quiet night in a comfortable warm bed with crisp linen. There were no electric blankets but we did not need them. The reverse cycle air conditioning warmed the room up for my girlfriend. There was a a decent size LCD TV on the wall with good reception. The bathroom was modern, roomy, clean, and there was lots of water pressure and hot water. The motel was not full on the Thursday night we stayed, but there were a few cars parked near ours - we did not hear anybody through the brick walls of the room though.

The breakfast had a wide range of cereals and there was toast, juice, and there were a few choices of instant coffe (I actually like it!) and tea. The breakfast room has a huge plasma TV, was roomy, and a view of a nice looking pool.

The managers were very friendly and offered great service, offering to hide the room key if we were going to be arriving late. Highly recommended if you are looking to stay near Newcastle.

We stayed here for a night on our way to Canberra. The beds were so comfy, the room was very neat, tidy and most importantly very clean. The continental breakfast included in the price was very delicious with a great outlook out to the pool for a great start to the day. The staff were very friendly too and made us feel very welcome and were very helpful with knowledge of the local area. I rate Sleepy Hill very high. Well done.

As this was the half way point between home and Port Macquarie we weren't looking for anything too flash, but were pleasantly surprised.

We were running an hour late and a quick phone call had the owner wait up for us which was nice. The room was a good size with a nice newly renovated bathroom. Comfy beds and a great continental breaky made this a great deal.

Room Tip: Don't book on line, cheaper to contact them direct.
