We dropped in to the tiny country town in New South Wales on our way to Melbourne. The Karuah Motor Inn is very reasonable in prices, excellent deco, great bed and lovely breakfast. The acting manager was very helpful and a lovely Chinese Meal at the local RSL. Totally recommend this motel.

Well located with nice clean comfortable rooms at a good price. Home cooked breakfasts delivered to the room were delicious. Extremely friendly owners. Ideal spot for the yearly Lost Highway Blues Festival.

Have been staying in motels on a round trip of Melbourne to Brisbane. Karuah is a great little stopping spot with Cole Bros oysters,vibrant RSL and a terrific motel situated near a beautiful river. The motel though a smallish room ticked every box otherwise. The proprietor was lovely and the room very clean with all extras provided.

My husband and I stayed over night in April on our way back home and found the Karuah Motor inn is the cleanest and quietest motel we have stayed in between Sydney and the Gold Coast. Staff were very helpful and pleasant. I would recommend staying there.

A delight because of all the little things Karen and Peter have paid attention to. Chocolates in the fridge, proper coffee, great breakfast (how do they do it for the price?), lovely bright and large room, great bed, facility to wash down our dusty car, good toiletries, large fluffy towels, first class bed linen. We will be back and will...

My friend and I needed accomodation at short notice while driving back to Brisbane and finding that we were too tired to continue. After trying four other motels in Raymond Terrace and all quoting an exorbitant rate for a twin room, a lovely local man suggested the Karuah Motor Inn and rang ahead on our behalf. We had a lovely,...

Lovely décor and a fabulous breakfast, bacon, eggs, toast and tomato for $7.50. Quiet and very handy to the wonderful restaurant in the RSL. Will...

Hi Glenn, Thanks for the great review, the RSL is a great little club for dinner. Our reasonably priced breakfasts will keep you going until morning tea time. Looking forward to seeing you again.

I have always found the Motel to be clean and comfortable and the proprietors friendly and obliging. Breakfast is very good. Where else could you get bacon, eggs and toast for $7.50? Is only a short walk to the RSL which is very friendly. The location is also very quiet.
