When I arrived at this hotel reception after booking on the phone, I felt like I was coming home. We were both made to feel so welcome and the staff explained the facilities and hotel so nicely. We had to leave very early in the morning so we did not have time for breakfast.

Family friendly, fairly centrally located , clean rooms, comfy bed. Our room also had a kettle and toaster, which is a neat extra. Beds huge and comfy. Had dinner at restaurant food was to die for. the staff are very friendly and accommodating even when very busy. I would recommend Best Western Sanctuary Inn to anyone staying in Tamworth. The room we got, which was a loft was just beautiful.... Will not stay anywhere else from now on.... Love it here

As a Best Western rewards member I often travel to multiple Best western properties around the country and NZ for work and leisure. The Sanctuary Inn is equal with the Best of Best Westerns in AU/NZ. I stayed in room 61, a loft style family room. Newly renovated, highly quality fixtures and multiple LCD TVs, one for the kids and one for us so we could both relax at same time. Free high speed Wifi and close to hotel pool. Can't ask for a lot more.

An upmarket experience. Your never sure what to expect in a country town. But the sanctuary delivered the goods in more ways than one. We received a complimentary upgrade to a long bedded room which was a nice way to start. Our room was meticulously clean and recently renovated / updated. Better than a lot of hotels I've stayed in the big smoke in Sydney. It was sooo hot when we checked in, our air con worked efficiently. We headed to the lobby bar for early drinks at 5.30pm. We were welcomed by a polite Irish barman who eagerly took our drinks and food order. Drink were Ivey cold, dinner was equally as good in the riviera restaurant. Both my wife and I both ate the home made cannelloni- it was superb.

We were made to feel very welcome by every staff member who looked after us. We were also nurtured by the delicious food available at the hotel, the rooms were fantastic very comfy bedding and high quality sheeting. Would highly recommend this place to anyone

I have never travelled through country New South Wales before or Tamworth for that matter so my partner and I were a bit apprehensive and unsure of what to expect. But I can easily say Tamworth and for that matter the Sanctuary Motor Inn is actually decent and so are the staff that work there. Our overall experience was a positive one. We received free breakfast with our included room plan and the hotel matched the same rate as a third party booking site when we booked direct

This is my second stay at this hotel and my family and I were still thoroughally impressed. This is not your typical motel and overall is great value. The pool was very refreshing and the new menu in their restaurant was great to. I can recommend to business or lesieurley travelers alike.

Room ok, breakfast ok, although, no full breakfast available as chef apparently resigned. Female manager is obviously over the concept of customer service or perhaps cannot grasp it. Better value in Tamworth, without the boring attitude. Unfortunately parking is not allocated and must park where there is an available space.

Last minute booking on a drive south from Brisbane. Air con really struggled and the room didn’t cool down till about 3am. Rooms are tired but pleasant enough for a quick overnight stay. Included breakfast was simple but great to be able to eat and get back on the road.

Very covenient to shops and attractions. Room lovely and clean. Very comfortable bed and even a spa bath. The staff were very helpful especially when locked out of room. Enjoyed my stay in Tamworth. Certainly will be back again and recommend motel to friends.
