Right from the start our stay was wonderful. Vicki is amazing, so friendly, professional and helpful. Room is great. Food in the restaurant was very good indeed, and great value. Definitely can recommend to anyone for any reason.

Last time we stayed we ate in the restaurant but this time we didn't arrive until late. Bummer, the restaurant alone is worth it to stay here....but. Reception is welcoming, rooms are comfortable and clean, beds good, shower OK. Over to the restaurant for breakfast - waitress was happy and friendly, food well cooked. They have a new coffee machine... More

We stayed two nights at this motel. The staff were friendly and helpful. The exterior was neat and well-maintained. Our room was very usable, clean, neat and comfortable. Although on the main road, we experienced virtually no road noise. Our room (like most) overlooked the courtyard and pool, with parking right outside our room.

They supplied a toaster electric jug tea coffee but No plate to put your toast or no knife to butter it? Certainly not a deal breaker I just found it frustrating... More

Surprisingly quiet on the main road close to the Big Prawn. Friendly staff, good food in the restaurant. Bed a bit sagging on the side but not unbearable. Parking tricky if you have a big vehicle or a trailer. Good basic accommodation, happy to visit again.

Just a few minutes from the icon Big Prawn. And very close to shopping center and restaurant. I do recommend the Poly Thai in there. It's the only one that opens on 27th Dec! For the motor inn, as we just passed by and did not stay long in there, no chance to go swimming in the pool. Anyway, it's... More

This is the best food I have eaten for a long time and my family eats out regularly. You know the veggies are great when it is the 1st thing your 4 year old eats. Had stuffed tomato, olive and feta chicken. 100% worth every cent and it was not over priced! Staff and chef were so welcoming. Congratulations on... More

Next stop on our road trip and this place was better value than Coffs Harbour (imo) We had a queen room for $155 and it was far away from the highway which was appreciated. The room was spacious and the bed was comfortable enough for 1 night. The motel was easy to find and the fact that most rooms faced... More
