Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 November 2013

The management have to be praised for their kindness and dedication to the Motel. They couldn't do enough for you. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The outside is foreboding so was unsure when we first pulled up. But was won over when I saw the room and the friendly welcome. Breakfast was a handy extra. Plenty of soap shampoo etc. tea and coffee in room. Staff were happy to lend us cutlery and plates for our beans and toast. Handy as 2 mins of the Pacific Highway.

Awwww.....thank you so much for that very kind review! The owners make it very easy to be dedicated to the motel as they put so much back into it themselves, instead of taking it all out. The girls do a fabulous job in the rooms to keep them fresh and clean. Hopefully the older rooms will be refurbished in the New Year and there are also a few ideas for the front as well.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day so if we can send our guests off happy, fully rested and refueled, ready to face their day, we feel we are doing something right.
Being only 2 minutes off the highway is a bonus as the stop over doesn't alter the distance traveled
We are so happy you found what you needed at the Sleepy Hill and we hope you can stay with us again sometime.
Michelle & Garry - Managers.

Thank you for taking the time to write this glowing review, I am still smiling from it! We really enjoy getting feedback from our guests.......especially when it's positive! Arriving tired is hard enough for travelers so we try very hard to make check in as smooth as possible for them. The housekeeping staff are very reliable and we constantly receive positive comments regarding the high standard of our rooms.
we are so happy you enjoyed your stay with us and we hope you can stay with us again when you are in our area.

Stayed overnight while returning home. Outside of motel looks a bit dated but the room was fresh & clean. Queen bed with good linen & pillows. Front door to carpark & a rear sliding & screen doors to small sitting area at rear. Microwave, fridge, toaster, tv & jug. Small table & 2 chairs. Exhaust fan in bathroom was noisy. Price included breakfast, toast, juice, cereals, tea & coffee. Restaurant was closed but plenty of good eat places short drive away. Hosts made us feel welcome and check in was quick. Will stay again if in the area.

Thank you so much for your positive review. A healthy breakfast is a great way to start your day, especially when travelling. The delicious yogurt and fruit salad is hard to say no to.
The owners have spent a lot of money refurbishing the motel and they still have more to do, the bathroom exhaust fans are on the list to do, but everything takes time..............and money ha ha!
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us and we look forward to seeing you again if you visit Raymond Terrace.

We stayed at this Motel on our way from Canberra to Coffs Harbour. A pleasant surprise, comfy bed and linen. Breakfast included. Very helpful staff. Well priced. Will definitely recommend to fellow travellers

Room Tip: Some of the back rooms have access to a grassed area. Very relaxing

It is always a treat to open our computer first thing in the morning and see a great review from Trip Advisor. Thank you so much for taking the time to write one. All our staff work very hard to make sure our guests are made to feel comfortable and welcome. I will make sure I pass the compliments on to them, (as well as to the owners as it makes us look good ha ha).
We are so happy you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to seeing you again in the not to distant future.

This hotel has obviously been refurbished. While the outside is still a little dates, inside the room was great, modernish and very clean and comfortable. Hot, strong shower. Excellent bed and linen. The breakfast was more than adequate. Definitely would stay here again.

We stayed overnight on the way to Brisbane from Sydney. We booked last minute and Michelle was more than helpful while booking - even offered a choice of rooms to best accommodate us. When asked for best locations to take the family for dinner, they suggested a number of places locally, recommended child friendly places, and provided directions for us - very helpful.
The room was clean and well kept and my two boys loved the novelty of having a room and tv to themselves
Was a great place to stay and would not only stay again but definitely recommend it to others.

Michelle & Gary were great hosts. The room was lovely, nice attention to detail and very quiet too. Lived our stay here. Would definitely stay again! Close enough to Raymond Terrace to enjoy all the restaurants, but far enough away to be nice & quiet.

Thank you so much for posting a review for other guests to read. We do get a lot of positive comments regarding how quiet, comfortable and clean the rooms are which is such a bonus when staying in a different place to home.
It was lovely to meet you both and we hope to see you here again sometime.
