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... More

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... More

We stayed 1 night in this motel because of it's quiet location on our trip south. The motel would have been at it's peak in the 60's and is now showing its age. The bed was good and the flat screen TV worked well. The show only had a shower curtain and tended to flood the bathroom. The A/C worked... More

We had chosen this place as I had searched for a pet friendly motel. Although advertised as pet friendly, there is no information about an extra charge for pets that the rude host wanted to add on at check in. She admitted that the "surcharge" is not on any posted information on the internet. I felt that it was just... More

Room was dirty, the window ledge in the shower was covered in cobwebs and flies, the carpets were so sticky I didn't want to walk around in bare feet. The worst part was we ate in the restaurant.
