Easy friendly check in. Rooms clean and neat. Perfect for a quick over night stop. Best check in early as they were full even though it was the week that school returned. Did not get to sample the coffee shed. Heard it is good! Air conditioner a bit noisy if you want to run it all night but I am...

Thank you for your review. We appreciate you giving us a try and hope you had a restful stay minus the air conditioner. We understand some of them are older and quite noisy, but at least they are in working order during this extremely hot period. Glad the stay was overall a positive experience and hope you will come back...

This new managers-couple try hard to make you enjoy your stay, it's not a basic motel where you just spend a night because you can't find anything else. It makes the difference. A little shed cafe offering nice breakky and coffee is a big plus, very welcoming. First try, success, so definitely recommending it.

I would highly recommend this accommodation if you are passing through Nowra. Staff were welcoming, informative and suggested places of interest that was applicable to my needs. The room was spotless and comfortable. I didn't use the pool but it looked clean and inviting. Compared to other accommodation in Nowra this property seemed to be the best value.

Clean and comfortable rooms. Close to shopping center and central to most attractions and activities. Friendly staff. Cosy little cafe on premises serving tea, coffee, hot chocolate and breakfast. Lots of restaurants and take away store close by.

A great location, but motel room in need of some attention. Very clean, with good linen and comfortable bed. Bathroom very dated, cistern ran intermittently and loudly all night with a very squeaky bathroom door. People were very pleasant and accommodating and looks like some building works might be imminent to bring it up to scratch. I'd stay again based...

Thanks for your honest feedback. We love to hear it so we can make improvements. This is no doubt an older motel that needs a bit of work. We have started renovations, but can only do one room at a time especially during this busy period. Hope everything else was satisfactory and met your needs.

I stayed here for 2 nights with my kids and parents (2 rooms). The location, staff and swimming pool facilities were excellent. Quiet area and great for families. Rooms need to be renovated, though very cleanly maintained. Staff were very helpful.

I could not have better things to say about my night at Pleasant Way Motel in Nowra. The staff were extremely helpful and could not do enough to make sure my stay was more comfortable.

We are more than happy to help when we can. We are huge supporters of the sporting community as my husband is also part of it.
