It's the perfect stopover between Sydney and Brisbane. I'm a repeat offender, four times and counting.. To know that at the end of a long drive that there is a smiling face waiting for me, a clean room, comfy bed, free wifi and amazing home cooked meals, stopping here has become a welcome destination and not just a quick stopover.

Very clean rooms, excellent food, happy cheerful staff. We will use the Espana again and recommended it to family and friends already. We frequently stop over in Grafton and can't beleive we've missed this venue in the past. Not again though.

The motel was on the highway but quiet.The room was pretty basic but for a wheelchair friendly it was great! The WC bathroom worked well for us, the bed was really comfortable, and the meals were great! - the whole lot cost us less than what you'd pay at other places - for not as good a deal..We'll go back..

Spent 2 nights here with the family Clean rooms and very friendly staff. Check in was so easy and the rooms comfortable. Had a room at the back of the complex and the near by train track meant train at midnight was a little painful but bearable. Would stay again no troubles at all.

We arrived at 7pm after 12 hours on the road and all we wanted was some dinner and a cold beer. Thankfully the restaurant was open and we had a large... More

We arrived late and were pretty exchausted from a long drive and happy to found the Motel which we booked in advance. We paid cash when we get the room key.

I would like to address this cockroach issue you experienced at our motel. Firstly we have in every unit Electronic Insect Repellents. We have found over the last 16 years that they have work very well. We are also particular with our standard of cleaning. Cockroaches have never been a problem. If you read other reviews on our motel you... More
