Stayed here for two nights while attending a family event in Maitland. Very nice motel, clean and comfortable. Staff very friendly and accommodating. Loved the amenities provided for booking direct with the motel (which I always try to do). We would stay here again if in the area.

This motel stop is a "must" if travelling on the New England Highway. Beautiful well equipped rooms with a pool in the middle of the grounds plus hosts, Paul and Kirstine Roadley, are people who will help their guests in every possible way. I had a very sick husband and they took charge, talking to him whilst we waited for the ambulance, organising food for when we returned from the hospital after 11 pm and even waiting to greet us when we finally came back at midnight. They were truly fantastic and I cannot recommend the place enough.

We stayed here last week for 4 days. It had everything that we needed. Attended a function at the Club Maitland so motel was only a few minutes walk away. Staff were friendly, bed was super comfy but most important was that the rooms were CLEAN.

I'm writing this for my mum (she's in her seventies, not internet savvy) and she wants people to know she was very happy with her stay. The people who run Old Maitland Inn are really lovely people. They picked her up from the train station and dropped her off again next day. The room was clean, bed comfortable, and she really liked the room service dinner. And it was quiet and she'd stay there again!

We stayed at this property on a weekend. Stayed there only for a night - checked in late & left early. The room was just OK for a short stay. It was clean & comfortable. We had a good night's sleep. The receptionist at the front desk was very helpful too. This was very similar to some of the good motels we stayed in NSW.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights as we were attending to a wedding in the Lovedale region. The motel room was extremely clean, the bed was very comfortable & we enjoyed our stay. Even though the motel is situated on a busy road, it was very quiet. The hotel staff were professional & accommodating to our needs. Would definitely recommend staying here.
