Wonderful location on a side-street to thw main drag in Nowra but very quiet, the Manager at reception was very friendly and helpful (a slight hiccough with Booking.com was resolved in no time at all), the room is huge & the bathroom bigger than some other places I've stayed. Can't recommend the George Bass highly enough.

Great little motor inn just outside Nowra CBD but close enough to walk to town. Motel is near the highway but not close enough to hear the noise. Rooms are large, beds are quality and room is spotlessly clean.. Highly recommended... plenty of restaurants and things to do nearby...

Thank you for your review, the room's at the back or the property are very nice, with parking out front in some rooms, we do try to help when we can, with so many eating places close by, it's hard to choose. Look forward to your next visit, to try another place to eat at.

Only stayed here for one night in a room that was near to the front of the hotel (so near the main road) and almost opposite the reception area so that just about all of the cars that exited and entered the hotel drove past our front door. It was fairly noisy during the day but noise abated a little during the night. The room was furnished with a queen sized bed (exceptionally firm and extra pillows were in the wardrobe) and a single bed both of which had bedside shelves with lamps on them, a large desk with drawers and two chairs as well as a reasonably sized flat screen TV. There was also a two door cupboard and a mini-bar but no safe. The bathroom was a reasonable size with a walk-in shower (pressure was fine) and no bath. The vanity was big enough to store toiletries and indeed there was a good array of free toiletries available. Strangely there was two face washers but no hand towels or bath mat. The room and bathroom were both clean. WIFI was included and worked fine though the air conditioner was making a strange noise. We had asked for a non-smoking room, which we received, and it even had a warning sign inside of an extra cleaning fee if guests were found to be smoking. However outside just about every room was a table with two chairs and an ashtray. The man in the unit next door to us was smoking like a chimney with a full ashtray such that we had to keep the door shut and even then the smoke came inside. Perhaps management could consider having a designated smoking area away from the rooms. There was plenty of parking and the hotel is located only about a 10 to 15 minute walk to the centre of town.

Thank you for your somewhat detailed review. Smoking is allowed outside the rooms but not inside. If the smoke annoyed you it would have been useful at the time to let us know. Problems can usually be solved if we have information at the time. Sitting at home and being a mighty keyboard warrior is no way to have issues resolved. We have never had a guest complain about traffic during the day so congratulations on being the first. No hand towel or bath mat, once again TELL US. Information is knowledge.

Great hotel in the centre of Nowra. We had an executive twin room that was quite modern and exceptionally clean. Staff are great with that "small town " hospitality . It was really quite at night and would stay again for sure .
