This motel is run down, overgrown and seems to be run by one person Didn't feel welcome, room outdated, beds too hard, room very small and shower/toilet tiny Having booked online for 2 nights and needing not to stay the second night, refund or part refused.

Some of the other reviews here sound off putting, but my experience with the Nambucca Motel was good. I booked online and was running late - turning up at 9.30pm after the office was closed - so I phoned ahead and they were very helpful and put the room key under the door mat of the room for me. The...

Unfortunately I don't have many positive things to say about this motel. From the moment I drove down the drive I regretted booking it. It looks run down, unkept, uninviting. When I walked in to reception the woman serving was unfriendly and off-putting. She was rude to speak with, I actually tried to cancel the booking due to her behaviour,...

What a disappointment. Smelly and old room in need of serious work. I ordered some room service and the lady who came to my room asked for cash on the spot....Mmmm? Would never stay here again. Def not it is in the pics. I found it was a truck stop more than a family motel.

Clean older style room. Room requires some maintenance & front desk wasn't interested in knowing about it when we told them about the issues. Very awkward bathroom with large frosted window to outside! Restaurant was good! Seemed overpriced for what it was - would look elsewhere in future.

We stayed here as a stop over and found Emma very helpful. We ate at the Chinese restaurant and found the food to be lovely. It was nice to just have a great meal after driving so long. Accommodation was dated but clean, which is important to us. Lovely outlook and property although it is a bit run down. Good...

Good value for money if travelling through for overnite stay. Air con, comfy beds, hot showers. Large rooms. Overlooks the Nambucca Heads river. Very quiet even though close to the Pacific highway. Staff very friendly. We enjoyed our stay.

After 20 years of looking at this place had booked it only for convenience of location in between Nambucca and Macksville. Basic rooms in nice setting but probably an 85.00 motel charging 100 in off peak. Not good breakfast set up and was not tempted to try the Chinese restaurant. Could do with a little more hospitality sense.

Im truley amazed by how many decent reviews there are. Some peoples standards in clenliness and sanitation are questionable. We arrived mid day as we work nights. The asian owner was somewhat dry and not really pleasant to converse with. We stay at plenty of old motels, and as long as there clean i will review them favourably. This placewas...
