Stayed at the Rockpool one night on our way to Ballina. Comfortable room and reasonably close to town. Club a short walk away where meals were available. Also a restaurant on site. Only one niggle in that a ground floor room is not worth the extra $40 charged. Parking was under cover so that was a plus.

From the outside the Rockpool looks like your regular larger motel in a country town. Open the door to your room though, and WOW you'll think yo'uve stepped into a 4 star chain hotel room. Enter the bathroom and WOW again! Very well appointed and a pleasant suprise. The small kitchenette is a welcome addition too. Onsite restaurant is very... More

Room was very clean, there is a restaurant within the motel so you are able to get room service which is hard to find within small towns on the NSW North Coast. Bed was very comfortable. Modern user controlled air conditioning. Staff were good. Best place to stay in South West Rocks.

We stayed here one night on a drive from Sydney to Noosa and thought it was good value. Our room was clean, the beds were comfortable and the staff were very friendly and helpful giving us dining and sightseeing advice. South West Rocks is a lovely town with a beautiful beach and a small shopping area. Worth a stopover or... More

This is our fourth stay at this establishment and each time it remains as perfect as the first. Very clean, comfortable beds, staff very obliging, undercover parking and good kitchenette. We left the car there and walked or rode our bikes everywhere. Would definitely recommend and will return next year for the 26th Trial Bay Triathlon!

Rooms are well appointed, clean and well maintained. reception staff were excellent. The restaurant food is very nice, and they happily accommodated special dining requests for my wife, who has food restrictions. Highly recommended - we hope... More

My family of five stayed at Rockpool Motor Inn from Boxing day until New Years Eve. We had interconnecting rooms which were very clean and very comfortable and also very affordable. The staff were friendly and accommodating and the pool was lovely. We had dinner in the restaurant on our last night which was absolutely divine. We will be back.

We stayed at Rockpool Motor Inn from Boxing Day for three nights, although it was a little noisy due to the time of year and many children staying there, it was clean, well appointed and had possibly the most comfortable bed I have slept in away from home. Another plus was the undercover parking.
