Moby Dick was the perfect choice for a weekend getaway. The staff are helpful and friendly, the room was comfortable, clean and beautifully styled and just metres from the water. Our favourite escape.

A wonderful relaxing place to stay. Excellent in every way!!! The pelicans are a real treat. There's a bait shop a few doors down the street where you can buy minnows to feed these hungry guys. You can't beat the relaxing atmosphere of Moby Dick's.

Stayed here for 3 nights whilst on a walking tour of northern NSW National Parks. Loved the room which overlooked the foreshore. Very comfortable and very welcoming! Breakfasts good, but would have liked proper coffee (not instant).

Thank Penny S

Hello Rob When we stayed there was no mention of a security deposit. I think we booked online and paid in advance so maybe that makes a difference? Regards Di
