Nice big room, clean and neat. Fresh milk provided for coffee, handy mini-bar. Meal for tea at the restaurant was first class and breakfast was just what we needed (Both delivered to the room hot and right on time). Both meals at a very reasonable price.

After 3 days Cycling from Armidale to SW Rocks this hotel was welcoming clean and very handy to the town and Country Club. Well maintained with good size rooms and a small kitchenette we really liked this hotel.

We were driving up the East Coast without a fixed itinerary and had been advised to stop at South West Rocks. It's a beautiful, quiet town off the beaten track, i.e. it's about 30 minutes off the Pacific Coast Highway. We stayed at Rockpool and also had dinner there. The room was clean and comfortable and the dinner at the... More

We only had one night here and unfortunately it was raining so we didn't use any of the facilities or get out to sample the town. Room was spotless with a double and a single so guess you could call it a family room. Also came with microwave / kettle / toaster and with a mini bar. Staff/owners were uber... More

Just stayed the 1 night for a friends wedding. Reception were really helpful. We had a small studio room, but it was larger then we expected(double,single and table with chairs) Room was clean and tidy. Had a pool which looked well maintained. Overall a good spot and recommend staying here.

My partner and I enjoyed a great two night stay at the Rockpool motor inn. It's less than a five minute walk to the country club (try the buffet!) and ten minute walk into town and the beach. Great location! We stayed in a Queen Spa Room and although my partner was expecting a bigger room we were impressed with... More

Stayed overnight on a Sunday in basic room on ground floor. Room was fresh, clean & not outdated like some. Onsite restaurant is close but not open on Sundays. Motor Inn is in quiet location, but only short walk to country club one way, or town in the other. We chose to walk to beach and enjoyed beautiful view of... More
