This motel is easy to find when you drive down Hastings River Road straight off the highway. However customer service needs improvement IMO. First up, we asked for a ground floor room ... but I guess the two coachloads of guests took priority as we were given a room on the top floor - no elevator only stairs. Clearly the... More

Great service for our group of 28. Everything prepared for our arrival. Delicious dinner and reasonably priced. breakfast was good. Location fine if you have transport which I am sure most people would. Handy to Aldi supermarket.

Wow! For $109 per night we found a real treasure! Faultless room, very comfy bed, fantastic shower after a nine hour drive! A little private verandah for a warm night and such a welcoming gentleman at reception! Wish we could have stayed longer! A definite recommendation!

Room was clean and we'll appointed. Quite spacious and the courtyard was a nice bonus. Couple of small things were annoying. The wifi was too slow to be usable and the shower was touchy and hard to get to a good temp. Otherwise a quiet and affordable place.

Stayed in a two bedroom room with the kids. The kids loved having a tv in their room! I loved having a tv for me too! The air conditioner worked well and the room was snug and warm. The wifi internet connection was good. I would recommend this hotel.

the property was a bit old. But you got everything you need. Heard some noisy yelling around 11pm for 15 minutes, probably some guests got drunk. Reception service is good and efficient. Convenient location!

Many thanks for your help with athletes and carers from Special Olympics this weekend. When accommodation was needed because another motel let them down you were very helpful. Great customer service at a time of need.

Excellent service, very welcoming. Requested a quiet room and we were well catered for. Couldn't fault our room, included full length mirror, comfy bed, warmth, great shower/bathroom etc. Would definitely stop here again.

Stayed overnight on way to Coffs Harbour . Room clean , spacious and perfect for an overnight stay. Although located on major road we were not bothered by road noise. Has a restaurant where we ate both dinner which we felt was well priced.

Upon arriving at the motel, the front desk staff were extremely friendly and made us feel welcome. There was plenty of car parking available. We stayed in the king spa room for 3 nights. There are two of these rooms at the front of the motel and they are separated from all the other rooms. They each have a small... More
