Make sure you ask for a room with a river view, preferably upstairs. We were not. Don't expect face washers or hand towels. We had to ask for them and found out that they were for the higher grade rooms. Breakfast is included, but don't expect much! self serve cornflakes and toast. Some had managed eggs on toast, which I... More

A fairly basic room but with a nice bbq and picnic area out the back by the river, which makes it. Next door is a good fish and chips but it is a short drive into town for anything else. We were there as a spot to climb Mt Warning and found it a good option.

This motel is very pet friendly, the staff are warm and friendly and the river front exposure is relaxing. My only criticism is like many older establishments they need a bit more attention to cleaning. Whilst the general cleanliness is fine little things like the corners of the showers etc need a great deal of attention

It's not often that on arrival at a motel you get offered to share a bbq lunch with the owner,even though he was not that busy at lunch(guests had departed and new ones had not all arrived), he was preparing a nice bbq on the back patio overlooking the tweed river. His only comment after booking the wife and I... More

Room was comfortable and quiet - agree with others about tired bathrooms - ledges need a good scrub and mould on roof needs removing. Enjoyed the complimentary breakfast looking out across the river. Was full most nights so seems to be popular.

My sister and I stayed here in the balcony room. It was pleasant! The motel is not in the centre of town, about 2km out, but it was quiet and peaceful. I think paying the extra for the balcony room is worth it, but I didn't see the non-balcony rooms, so not sure. The room had a large sized fridge... More

This Budget motel apparently has 3-3 ½ star accommodation. I probably scored a 3 star room so I will rate my experience accordingly. I’m guessing that the extra ½ star will get you a room with frontage to the river and/or balcony. I stayed 2 nights and didn’t have the complimentary breakfast so I cannot comment on it. Basically I... More

After a seven hour drive it wasn't a good idea to be sent to a pre booked family room that smelt like twenty cigarettes in a wet ashtray. The odour and the size (family?!) of the room were astonishing. The hosts obliged with a change of room ( riverside and very pleasant) but only after a heated diatribe from the... More

This is my third visit to Bob and Helga's Motel on the river. The rooms are comfortable, with a small kitchen for simple self catering. Plenty of blankets and pillows. Its still the best pet friendly accommodation I've found - and I spent a week this time. Its brilliant - and Hugo and I will be back!
