Room was clean and well presented. Would stay here again. Especially enjoyed the on-site Cafe and communal seating areas available. Motel was located close to river and walking path. Shops were a 10/15 minute walk which was convenient.

Where to start as list is very long. Worst customer service by Ankit. Rooms were not clean and stinky hence have too many mosquitoes. Sheets and towels were not cleaned. When I raised the issue with reception, he got very aggressive. I asked him to cancel the stay and refund the money but he refused. He called another person to support him with arguments so it was threatening for me. I was not comfortable so chosen to stay at friend place. After checkout they charged me extra for cleaning without authorisation. It was absolute shocking that charges were made when I did not stay. I asked for photos of uncleaned room. But they have no evidence. Truly shocking

Older style motel that has been refreshed with new paint and fittings. Comfortable bed, everything very clean, good location. It is a very pleasant environment. Wifi was good connectivity and speed, which is important for business travellers.

Pleasant Way River Lodge was absolutely wonderful. Incredibly clean and all the staff were friendly and very helpful. I have to say having a cafe, The Tin Shed, on site is a huge draw card! To be able to open your door walk 5 meters have breakfast and plan your day was brilliant. I was also impressed with how little noise I heard from other rooms, if I didn't know any better I would have thought we were the only ones staying there! I would definitely stay here again!

Check-in was easy, the room is spacious and has all the amenities including a microwave, the room was also very clean and tidy. The Airconditioning was perfect. The whole place was quiet and noisy.I liked the express check-out and the express key drop slot. Things to improve: extend the reception office opening hours, I had to take the luggage with me to work because I had to start work at 08:00 but the reception office starts at 08:30 am. Adding a hair conditioner and more soap bar. There was only one milk in the fridge which I drank on the first day of my stay but this has not been added in the fridge on the second day. Overall, If I will be back to Nowra, I am 100% sure that I will be staying at Pleasant Way River Lodge
