Stayed here for a few days on my way to qld. very quiet comfy and clean. Staff were friendly, restaurant was above average and close to rsl bowlo club and 10 minute walk to township. Pool is nice and the outdoor area near the rooms is clean and uncluttered. Overall it was very good.

Second time in a year that we have stayed here. Rooms are clean though the smell of paint pervades in our room tonight. We are on the boundaries of Wifi to the point that none of our devices can connect to it. The flat screen TV is receiving no digital signal, the pay TV channels I'm left with hold no... More

We stayed at this Motel for two nights to break our journey from Dubbo. Having not been into South West Rocks before it was a little hard to find at first (even though it is a very small town). We had assumed that by the name it would be on the Beach, but no matter we called and found it.... More

My husband and I and another couple stayed at this motel for a one night stay last weekend.We had interconnecting rooms.Because we stayed here before they gave us a great price and were very accommodating.We arrived early and they made sure the rooms were done up for us.Rooms were very clean and we couldnt fault a thing.Highly recommend this motel.

Spent three comfortable nights in a quality motel .Well presented and stocked bathroom ,tea and coffee making and a well priced mini bar complimented the stay . An excellent golf course and sports club literally around the corner and a ten minute walk to the town centre and beaches makes it a nice location . Whilst the town is off... More

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
