Wonderful welcoming host (Karen), nice touch with the plunger coffee, extremely clean, comfortable and quiet - just what you need after a long drive. Loved the rainbow lorikeets having a feast in the morning - hear the breakfats are sensational but didnt have one this trip Best place in Karuah to stay - cute little town. Peter T ( Melbourne)

On our way back from Yamba we decided to press on from Bulahdelah and go the the Karuah Motor Inn where we had stayed a couple of times previously, when the highway passed through Karuah. We were delighted we did. The motel room was very comfortable, clean and quiet and the breakfast extremely generous and right on time. The motel's...

Great overnight accommodation. The linen is superb! Clean and comfortable. Would definitely recommend it to anyone. Will be back next year. Fantastic value for money. The RSL is a short walk away. It is in a very quiet location and a short detour from the Freeway

This is a great country hotel. Rooms are clean well set out with up to date decor. The bed was comfy. This place is being run by a lovely couple who were very accomodating and happy to help. Highly recommended. No dinner meals served to rooms however the local RSL Club is only about a short 100 metre walk down...

We stayed overnight. My husband booked through booking.com & everything went smoothly. Three of us shared the room (2 adults, 1 child). The beds were comfortable & clean. The heating worked well, which was good as it was cold & rainy. The shower worked well & was hot, & towels were good. We bought food for dinner at the IGA...

As a traveler, holiday or on business, you could not go past this great overnight stop ( or longer perhaps). A very well maintained motel - very clean rooms - very reasonable cost (my wife and I stayed overnight mid August 2016, cost $116 and this included a great breakfast for 2). Great owners - very easy to get on...

We stayed at the Karuah Motor Inn on our way home from a camping trip. Everything we read in the reviews was true - made to feel welcome, helpful, friendly. Room was very nicely presented and a nice shift away from the "standard" clinical look of many motel rooms. Plunger coffee was a very nice touch too. Great place to...
