Wonderful hotel in Macksville with large room and bathroom, very comfortable and close to restaurants and club. Friendly staff and prompt check in, quiet street and easy to find in nice little riverside town, sure to stay next time I travel up or down the Pacific highway.

The rooms are clean, quiet and comfortable and undercover parking is provided. We stayed in one of the downstairs disabled rooms and undercover parking was available right outside the door. The motel is conveniently located only... More

I had booked and paid in advance for a down stairs room for 3 weeks, on one occasion I stayed a a different town for business purposes,( did not cancel the room, continued to pay) on return the...

The motel was much better than expected, clean and well maintained. Room was large and spacious and had everything we needed. Toilet was in a strange location and made it feel like you were going in the lounge room. It is off the main road so it was quite from passing traffic but not from other guests. Not sure if... More

Thank you very much for taking the time to review our little motel. We appreciate all comments and suggestions. I'm a little confused about your comment that using the toilet felt like you were in the lounge room, all our bathrooms have doors, was there a problem with it closing? If so we would have fixed that immediately. Our walls... More

We stayed here for two nights. Our hosts were very friendly and accommodating. Rooms were exceptionally clean and spacious. Free laundry facilities were available, making it easier for longer stays. Walking distance to the Ex-Services Club, Supermarkets and the town. Extremely quiet as it is two streets away from the main highway. Undercover parking is available. Would definitely stay here...

Stayed 1 night. Room was spacious, well appointed, and clean. Bed was comfortable and room had everything you could want from a motel. Booking was easy and staff were very pleasant to deal with. We arrived late due to traffic issues, and they kept the reception area open for us. Highly recommended. We will stay there again.

This hotel had beautiful spacious rooms with a clean modern bathroom. Walking distance to shops and the river. All in all very comfortable and we would definitely stay here again. Only problem we had was that we couldn't get onto the wifi as per instructions in the room but we didn't discuss this with the staff.

Thank you for the lovely review, we are glad you enjoyed your stay. It's a shame you didn't call reception, we would have explained that you sometimes need to restart your device and if that doesn't work, we are happy to re-set the router for you. Your feedback is very much appreciated and we hope that you choose to stay... More

Staff very helpful and friendly. Room clean, tidy and spacious. Nice and close to town, food outlets and shopping. A good amount of parking available (large vehicles have to park out front though). Quiet area.

Thank you so much for your kind review. Cooking facilities are available in both our studio and family rooms. Unfortunately due to fire regulations, only tea and coffee making facilities are available in all our other rooms. We would love to see you again. More
