I stayed here for a few nights during a dive trip - very quiet, and the beds were surprisingly soft and comfortable! It's a short walk or ride into town. I didn't spend much time there other than sleeping, but it had everything I needed. The WiFi was a little spotty but generally worked.

Having seen the signs to South West Rocks on many trips up and down the Pacific Highway, we decided to stop-over on 30 April. Unfortunately, this coincided with the late April/early May 2015 deluge from an unusual East Coast low pressure system affecting coastal NSW at the time. Fortunately, we selected the Rockpool Motor Inn for the evening. Very quiet... More

We recently overnighted at the Rockpool Motor Inn and were quietly surprised. This is a great place to stay in South West Rocks. Nothing could be faulted- from the extremely helpful, efficient and courteous staff, to the spacious, immacutely clean rooms. The unit was self contained, and we did not want for anything. It was so nice to receive coffee... More

We only stayed here one night on our way from Brisbane to Sydney but found it to be a great place to stay. The people were lovely, friendly and helpful. The accommodation was very clean, spacious and quiet. They also have a hidden gem in The Rock Restaurant attached to the motor inn. We had an exceptionally good dinner there.... More

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
