I was travelling solo, and wanted a break in Murwillumbah, so looked and booked online. Mistake! The motel is pretty budget, which is fine, but the bathroom was seedy, the shower recess was grubby and the burgundy-coloured curtain hanging in the recess was pretty tacky-looking. The blanket on the bed had seen better days, too. When I checked in, the... More

We stayed one night in twin room. Beds were comfortable. We could see that parts of the room had been spruced up. But the old bathroom let it down. I don't have a problem with old tiles so long as it is clean and the grout was not clean. Shower was water saving nozzle and hard to adjust the temperature... More

Do yourselves a favour and pay the small amount extra for a river view room with balcony. Even on a winter's evening this was a magic place to sit directly overlooking the Tweed River and watch the sun go down. There is a good fruit market almost next door with excellent local produce for preparing a meal in the kitchenette.... More

We love Murwillumbah and this motel was very convenient for stopping on our journey south (Cairns to Newcastle!) so we could visit the town the next morning. We had a lovely room overlooking the river and it had a spectacular view, made even better by a beautiful sunset. The garden fronts the river and is lovely for a walk or... More

Had two visits to this motel on the beautiful Tweed river. First was in a room with a view to die for. The room was clean and provided us with small area to cook a simple meal which was great following days on the road of "take aways". Staff were efficient and a free breaky of cereal and toast in...

We stayed for 4 nights with our 2 kids and our small dog. We all shared a large room, so was a bit awkward but considering we had a dog it was clean and tidy. The view was amazing and we spent a lot of time outside anyway.

I spent a night at Tweed River Motel in Murwillumbah. It was the cheapest in the area and the quietest, being back from the road and close to the river. It was clean and Bob and the staff helpful and friendly. Canoe and small boat available for the river (if you have the time). A nice BBQ area overlooking river... More

Booked in and thought we would have a nice stay for a couple of days before heading back home, we decided to stay here because they say they are a pet friendly hotel but they threaten you with a $100 cleaning bill if they find any dog hair in the rooms. We received a nasty note telling us that we... More

I travel with my dog all the time - and it can be a bit frustrating, because you get these motels and hotels who advertise as 'Pet Friendly', but are really just cashing in on the huge pet market. This place is not one of them. They are AWESOME! They have great rooms that are clean and tidy - tile... More
