Hawkesbury Race Club Motel Reviews
“Great value for money”
Absolutely enjoyed our stay, great value for money. It's located in beautiful area, very hospitable staffs, very clean, great views around if you want to do a bit of walk. We will definitely come back with our family.
“Excellent Motel, great family rooms, delicious breakfast”
We stayed here for three nights in late September 2013 for a wedding at Oakville House. Excellent location close to Claredon Train Station (could not hear the trains at all) and the Clarendon Tavern (good food but expensive for 'pub grub'). Undercover parking and safe and secure with keyed entry. The rooms were VERY clean, the most wonderful bed I have slept on- even the sofa bed had an excellent inner spring mattress which my adult daughter found comfortable. Nice sized bathroom with shower over bath & natural skylight. We had a microwave, sink and crockery/cutlery x 3 and a small fridge (and an excellent well priced ,mini bar). We had a table and chairs...and there is a Petrol Service Station within easy walking distance which has a mini supermarket- easy and cheap to self cater. Perfect. Although, with the delicious breakfast available (from Continental or full cooked + Continental) you may not use the kitchen in the room at all! The fruit was fresh and plentiful ...with a fab choice of cereal and breads with spreads- all your favourites are there. Happy chooks provided the free range eggs and the bacon was first class. The reception staff were very friendly (poor things- they did have issues with the door cards & a new computer system) and the Housekeeping cordial and attentive. Oh! and there is a guest laundry and pool and a drinks and snack machine near the laundry, too. Good old fashioned hospitality and service . Would certainly stay again♥
“Fantastic! Wonderful Staff - Ideal Location to nearby wedding Venues”
Our extended family stayed at the Hawkesbury Race Club Motel for 3 days late August 2013 to attend a nearby wedding in Kurrajong. We found the rooms exceptionally clean, very large with modern fittings throughout. The lovely ladies at the front reception desk helped organise our rooms so our family could be near to each other. Thank you girls -Nothing was a bother for them! Late checkouts were no bother either which was fantastic. We also loved the rural feel especially since it is so close to the city. The Tavern at Clarendon just a walk away is great too for a pub style lunch or dinner. Although the train station & Richmond Airforce base is nearby we were astonished at how quiet the motel is - great sound-proofing! We highly recommend this Motel and will be our number 1 choice when next in the area.

Friendly staff. Clean and very modern motel and very roomy. Near railway and RAAF base but with windows closed you do not hear anything. Easy under cover parking. We had a cooking room. Reasonably priced. Easy walking distance to Tavern. Pillows a little hard for my liking but that is my preference. Would stay here again and highly recommend this motel.
Booked 6 rooms as part of a family reunion. The staff were great to deal with, from the booking stage right thru to leaving. Very friendly and nothing too much trouble. Eg, they put an extra table in the pool/bbq area because there was quite a few of us. The room’s very clean and generous size. Would stay there again without a doubt. Stayed January 2013, traveled with family.
Room tips taken from trip advisor
“The actual entrance was tricky to find at night The Motel is very close to the Richmond Air force Base. If you are an early riser you should walk around the Racecourse and watch the horses train. The close proximity to the train line is not an issue as you can not hear the trains at all. Most units are up a double flight of stairs with parking underneath.”
“Perhaps a room in the second row - away from the railway line but as I said above you could only just hear the trains and it did not effect my sleep quality.”
“it is close to the train station and Richmond Airforce Base but the rooms windows are double glazed.”
“The whole motel is kept very clean so I dont think anyone would be dissapointed, but our favourite room is the spa room it has a large spa and a king size bed the beds are always comfortable and it has a kitchen area so you could stay for longer and cook your own meals if you wanted, we do advice a stay at this motel.”
