Have stayed here many times now as it is quiet and very close to the all amenities in Macksville. Big rooms, always very clean and your car is properly undercover should there be hail around. Nice breakfast cooked to order at a reasonable price. Professionally managed by friendly owners and staff.

Rooms are very clean and ample size. The furniture is a bit dated but as expected for a motel. The bed is quite comfy too! Only complaint would be that our room has an adjoining door to someone else's room and we can hear them quite easily. Otherwise it's pretty much all you want out of a motel!

It is unfortunate that you happened to be in a room that adjoins our family room, due to fire regulations we cannot reinforce... More

The room was super clean.....and we are fussy! The greeting was friendly. The bed was really, really comfortable. A short stroll to clubs and cafes. Don't expect a view as it is off street and the Juliet balconies over look the car park. We were disappointed that we couldn't have cereal or toast in the room as there was no... More

Have stayed on two occasions and have found the rooms to be clean, spacious and well presented. Lovely to find something with large rooms, clean, quiet and exceptionally comfortable. Friendly owners provide a great breakfast. Good halfway stopover between Sydney and Gold Coast. Thoroughly recommend as a very comfortable beds and friendly staff make it a great place to stop

Perfect for what we needed. A one night stay for a family of 5 plus a baby. The trundle beds were great for the kids and the studio room was very spacious for all of us (with the adjoining room for kids trundles). Lovely and clean. Will definitely return on our next road trip
