Recent guest reviews

I travel to Tamworth for business from Sydney and compared to where i normally stay, this place was amazing. I stayed in the premier room and it was fantastic. The bed was super comfortable and unlike most other motels i stay in the bathroom was spotless. The restaurant on site was quick and surprisingly the food was like big city dining. Check in and check out was a breeze and Georgie I think her name was, was vibrant and very friendly. Thanks for a great stay, see you in a few weeks.

I really enjoyed my stay, the staff were very helpful in providing directions and showing which were the best places to eat. On site restaurant is also good. Very clean and friendly, nice and close to everything.

I travel to Tamworth often for business at least once per month. Compared to what other dumps in town are charging, the sanctuary is a blessing at the rates they charge for both their standard and premier rooms. I have stayed in both room types as Premier has not always been available if im booking last minute and I can honestly has the BW Sanctuary Inn can't begin to be compared to other motels in the town. The restaurants food is more expensive than other motels and pub grub in town but you get what you pay for!! Do yourself a favour and try the food! I lost my key returning to my room at 1am on one of the nights and Robert and Georgie the onsite managers live on site and were able to cut me a new key no hassles at all! I felt sorry for them because I woke them up. Anyway thank you again. My work pays for my accomodation ion and often get to stay in their celebration spa suite, check out the pics below and ask them for a deal on the price of the room as there is a bit of movement.

My husband and I travel extensively around the world but we were still pleasantly surprised by the Sanctuary inn. From the moment we were checked in to the moment we checked out, we felt at home in the welcoming environment. The rooms are well appointed with LCD tv's, very comfortable beds, block out blinds and a nice clean modern bathroom. The hotel staff are willing to go the extra mile and help out where ever they can. I am Italian and I can tell you that the Italian food in their restaurant is just like Nonna is cooking in the kitchen. Would highly recommend this motel if traveling through Tamworth.

A regional gem that ticks all the boxes! My partner and I stayed here for the weekend recently and were really impressed. Our room was very nice and the bed was super comfy. The staff went out of their way to look after us and we had a fantastic meal in the motel's Riviera restaurant - a real surprise for a couple of Sydney-siders! The pool was great too as it was a very hot weekend. We'd definitely stay at Sanctuary Inn again.

This place truely is a sanctuary. The staff are so friendly and welcoming, even the reception smells amazing when you enter with some kind of diffuser! We stayed at the sanctuary inn last week for a business meeting being held at the motel. The conference centre was nicely made up for us and the food supplied for the meeting was freshly made for the day. We booked a premier king room for $169 directly with the hotel, no complaints there, the room was tastefully decorated and updated.

The family and I stopped in Tamworth to break up our trip and were really impressed by this Great Hotel . The rooms were spotless and the friendly staff could not do enough for us . We will definetly stop here again and the restaurant is Amazing !!

We always stay at the Sanctuary Inn Tamworth. The staff who greet you are excellent. So were those preparing the meals. Although the child's meal was very ordinary to say the least. There were only two chips on the plate. The room was also lacking some of the facilities in the bathroom. Other than that, it was very enjoyable.

We were lucky to secure 2 of the remaining rooms over the Easter break. Rooms were of ample size , mine was noisy due to being at the front next to the highway but this is too be expected. Beds very very comfortable. Amenities in the room were fine. The dining room looked very inviting , however this was closed for the night we were there. Breakfast was served to your room. The breakfast menu was quite modern. My word of advice here is do not cover hot food with glad wrap. Please use the metal lids like other places do. My French toast was getting steamed under the plastic wrap. Not good. Everything else was fine . Front of house service friendly and welcoming.

We will definitely be staying here again, from the moment we entered reception the staff were so caring, kind amen hospitable after such a long drive of 5 hours but it felt like a lot longer due to numerous road works on the New England high way. Our friends reccomnded this motel to us and you can see why, the room we had was freshly cleaned with a king bed and crisp white sheets. The bed was so good that we ended up ordering one through the manager at reception with his contact at AH Beard King Koil! We were fourtunate enough to give their menu a run in their beautifully decorated restaurant. The food matches the hotel - excellent.
