We had an overnight stay on our way North. This was our 3rd stay at this establishment over several years. The ambience of the Motel remains unchanged with welcoming staff in a historic building. The beds are comfortable and showers and facilities efficient. Highlight would be the cooked breakfast in the downstairs dining room - included in the tariff. The...

Traveling through Australia for 2 weeks, this stop was a wonderful, unexpected delight. When anyone sees the term motel, you don't think of a big, clean room, with wonderful hosts. This family run place was welcoming from the moment we got there. It was Christmas Eve. Check in was fast and friendly and we were also given suggestions for dinner...

Relaxing. Quiet town. Friendly hosts. Would stay here again. Bed is a bit too firm for me. Sheets are a bit rough. Pillow was lumpy. View from balcony is lovely. Walk to water. Gf toast has been added to the breakfast menu at no additional cost. Breakfast included in tariff. Plunger coffee supplied for breakfast.

Stayed for one night. Friendly staff/owner. We had a balcony over looking the water. Cooked breakfast and we had the option of having it on the balcony of our room. Opted for the table out on the verandah downstairs. The mattress was alittle firm, but still slept well. On a steep hill so be careful if you have a car.

We stayed recently for 2 nights in 2 rooms. The service was excellent, so friendly and helpful. The rooms were spotless and had excellent design and fixtures to make staying a historic building a holiday highlight. The included hot breakfast was another 5 star feature. The views from our rooms were beautiful. Our 3 daughters loved the experience of this...

I am in two minds regarding the extensive upgrading of the Pacific Highway. Once finished it will be a far better trip for us travelling from Gold Coast to Sydney but it will mean a longer detour to get to our favourite stopover in Nambucca, but it will still be worth the trip. If you like B & B's then...

Thank you for your recommendation. Although the upgrading of the Pacific Highway will lead to a longer detour to get to us, but it will also push us to upgrade our hospitality. We had replaced some bar refrigerators and will do more upgrading in the coming next year. We believe this upgrading will bring our guests better experiences. It is...

We stayed for 2 nights in a " Queen Suite with River View" its just a largish room rather than a suite but very comfortable with nice bathroom towels etc and it had a balcony overlooking the river albeit with a car park in between. It's an interesting 10-15 minute walk along the riverfront to the beach - partly on...

We recently stayed for 1 night on our drive from Sydney to Brisbane. Check in was quick and our room very well equipped with a lovely view across the estuary. We pre-ordered breakfast which we took on our balcony. The staff were pleasant and helpful. Good value for money.

Friendly welcome at this pleasant accommodation, in a converted vintage pub. River view room offered just that. Bonus is the cooked breakfast downstairs or in your room, cooked to perfection. What did they do wrong? Nothing!
