Very friendly and informative managers. This upstairs room had a balcony with a garden view. There is a well maintained BBQ area and a beautiful bamboo style tropical garden. The room was well equipped with cooking utensils and microwave. As it is over 18km from the Pacific highway the motel is very quiet with no traffic noise. It was great... More

Our hosts made us feel welcome and orientated us to the local area. The service we received from our hosts was excellent. The cleanness of the unit was exceptional with beautiful outdoor area and garden.

The motel is central -close to everything. Les and Margaret make you welcome, they are polite, knowledgeable, and very helpful. The rooms are spacious, spotless, very comfortable and quite well equipped. The room has Wifi, Austar, aircon, and CEILING FANS. Very well priced with extended stays and Seniors looked after. We couldn't really identify any downside, if I was picky... More

My mother and I spent a few days together in Iluka over Easter and the Iluka Motel was the perfect place to stay. We were pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness and tidiness of the motel, and the décor was not as dated as appeared in photos. We were greeted warmly on arrival and nothing was too much hassle for the... More

We were looking for a one night stopover to break the Brisbane to Sydney drive, looking for something quieter than the more obvious stopover at Coffs Harbour. Iluka was a perfect choice, just off the highway c4hrs from Brisbane, Les and Margaret welcomed us warmly to the Iluka Motel, room was clean and big enough for us all (2 adults,... More

This motel is an asset to the township of Iluka. Managers Les & Margaret are the perfect host, nothing was a problem. Units are well maintained and very clean, with free WiFi, microwave and all the kitchen essentials to make your stay very comfortable. Local bowling club is within walking distance and provide a very good meal. I would recommend... More

The cleanest and friendliest hosts of any motel my wife and I have visited and that would be in the hundreds in Australia and America. The room was immaculate. The gardens, although not large are tropical with so many colors on the plants, with a large eating area under cover with two barbecues. The hosts Les and Margaret Salter have... More

What a surprise! Managers Margaret and Les could not be more helpful. I was staying for work and my room was huge! It has a queen bed and two singles but they were not on top of each other, There was plenty of power points, a microwave, toaster etc with loads of cutlery and glasses with a bowl and dishwashing...

This motel is in a great quiet small country town on the coast and water. The room was good and extremely clean and well maintained. Although a 1970s building everything is spotless and well maintained with beautiful grounds. Breakfast was great. It is just a short walk to shops and pub and a few great walks. This is just a...

We checked into the Iluka Motel meaning to stay one night only but finished up staying three. We were enchanted with the carefully maintained grounds, the special attention to every detail and the warm hospitality of the Manager Les and his wife Margaret. The rooms are spacious and clean and the whole place was quiet and restful. The nearby Bowling... More
