Just one night in South West Rocks to break up our journey and Rockpool Motor Inn was a good choice! Undercover parking, an on-site bar and pool, terraced levels with outdoor seating and umbrellas, nice gardens and grounds and a short drive or 15 minute walk to the water - we had a very comfortable studio and the beds and...

The staff were very friendly when we checked in. The room was very clean (a bit dated) but other than that had all the basics covered. It is about a 10 minute walk to the beach and main town. The wifi isn't great, it does cut in and out often but it is offered. My only complaint about this motor... More

Took my Dad there for a visit as he used to go there with Mum who recently passed away. The room was very neat and comfortable and we had an excellent stay. The only issue I had was the shower nozzle head which nearly blew me over but I suppose that's water saving for you! We enjoyed the stay very... More

Called ahead as we were running late and were not going to arrive before the reception closed. They arranged checkin over the phone and arranged for us to receive our key when we got there. The rooms were large and very modern. Beds were very comfortable and pillows were very comfortable. Bathrooms were a good size and very clean. Checkout... More

Stayed at South West Rocks for the first time and this has to be the best motel by far in the area. The motel has just been refurbished and the presentation is exceptional - the grounds, gardens and facilities are really well presented. Lots of outdoor areas to sit and relax and take in the beauty of the property -... More

Very nice staff. Even though we were three hours early we were upgraded to a beautiful spa room. Very clean and spacious. Would love to go back for a longer stay. Walking distance to everything and very quiet.

If you are looking for clean, comfortable and quiet accomodation this is the place. Very friendly staff and reasonably priced. The Rockpool is also close to town and walking distance to club for a cheap meal.

We chose this motel as it appeared to offer more than others from our on line search. Probably a little expensive, but the room was quite well appointed, fairly modern and there was a small kitchenette as well as undercover parking. The receptioniste was friendly and helpful. The on site resaurant at first appeared to be a bonus as we... More

This motel is slightly out of town but within a good walking distance. We asked for a quiet room and were given a room next to some stairs which other guests used to bump their suitcases down in the morning and other guests used all night so not the quietest of rooms. All rooms must have interconnecting doors so if... More
