Although I booked a disabled room I was disappointed that it was difficult to access the shower, toilet & basin. A glass screen is between the toilet & shower & a pipe cover forced me to sit sideways at the basin. Not suitable for para / quadraplegics. Otherwise clean & comfortable.

Soo clean and beautiful crisp clean linen. Bathroom clean no mould. All the creature comforts, toaster, kettle, coffee and tea, biscuits (even the Shangri La in Sydney don't supply biscuits) everything I needed in the bathroom even make up remover. Quiet sleep on Saturday night, never even heard neighbors. No hesitation to come back here again when in Nowra. Top...

We've stayed here for one night during the long weekend. Staff are very friendly and helpful despite we arrived late at night. Room has been refurbished and very clean and neat throughout. The hotel is off the main street so there is no noise concern. Nice stay and would like to come back again.

Comfortable beds. Quiet. Good value. Deluxe rooms at back have king beds. Executive rooms at front Queen beds. Deluxe rooms much more spacious and better quality bathrooms. Close walk to Bridge Tavern. Good steak chips and salad always on menu.

Thanks for your review. We are happy you had a great stay with us, with the Bridge Tavern so close it is an easy walk to get a good meal. Looking forward to seeing you soon.

We spent 1 night here on our way South. Having lived in Nowra 50 years ago we remember the motel from those days. Today it is a nicely fitted out motel not showing its age at all. It is spacious with a comfortable sitting area and sofa, a good size bathroom, comfortable bed and centrally located in quiet Bridge road...

Recently stayed at this motel in Nowra. We chose it because we are members of the Golden Chain Group and when we present the card on arrival, we are entitled to a 10% discount. When I presented my card to the manager on arrival, he said he would have to check with the "boss". On checkout I again enquired about...

Hi Jenny, When you stay at a Golden Chain motel, you need to call us direct and mention that you are Golden Chain members, we are happy to give you your 10% discount, but as you mentioned you had booked your accommodation online you accepted the price given, (this price is discounted)you came into to the office on departure showing...

Have stayed at the George Bass a couple of times now and I’d have to say it’s very popular. There haven’t been any vacancies both times I’ve stayed there, a great indication in my book. Front desk staff (I’m assuming the managers) are great, very friendly & welcoming and happy to have a chat rather than the usual “here’s your...

The standard room is spacious; enough space for luggages and there even a sitting area with two seater sofa, and clean. Shower is strong and hot. Bed is firm, not soggy. Sufficiently lit. Friendly owner. Good rate.

Stopped here for one night on our way down the Princes Highway. Friendly, helpful owners. Room was clean and comfortable. Free wifi and parking. Tea and coffee making facilities, flat screen TV. No complaints at all.

Good size rooms and awesome water pressure in the shower which is a huge win in my books. Was a bit noisy with cars coming and going through the night with the car parks right outside the room and a few more dinner options would have been a bonus
