The hotel has a small pool but very clean & relaxing, plenty of car parking, good reviews about the restaurant (didn't get a chance to eat at the restaurant). Nothing not to like at this place. Beaches are only 5 minutes walk away & so is the pub, club, cafes, golf course!!!!!!

It was a last minute decision for us to stay in South West Rocks on the drive home to Sydney from QLD. We were certainly not disappointed with our decision to stay at Rockpool Motor Inn. We booked the last room at the motel during the busy Christmas holiday. I was warned when checking in that the room we got was one of their least favourite rooms and that they normally try to upgrade guests but were unable to because they did not have any vacancy. We had no issue with the room at all! It was impeccably clean and the bed was the most comfortable we had slept in all trip! We were warned about the noise from the kitchen opposite the room, however, this stopped fairly early and didn't bother us in the slightest. Fred and Di were so polite and professional upon check-in and check-out and we appreciated them being upfront from when we arrived. The motel is located an easy, flat walk into the centre of town and the beach. We look forward to staying there again and getting a chance to enjoy South West Rocks for longer than a night.

We really enjoyed our recent three night stay at Rockpool. Our self contained suite was impeccably clean, spacious & comfortable. We enjoyed dining at the on site restaurant & the location is convenient to the beach & town centre.

Fred and Di were warm, friendly and did everything they could to make our stay special. A lovely place to stay with a great vibe. We stayed over the Christmas period in a king spa room. The bed was super comfortable and the room spacious and pleasant.
