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!

Whenever I'm in the Tweed or Northern Rivers area there is only one place to stay, waking up and admiring the Tweed River and Mt Warning from the balcony makes me want to stay longer. the owners are extremely helpful and their knowledge of places to visit helped me fill in my time in the area

The motel is fairly average except for the location which is right on the river bank. Sitting on the balcony any watching the river life is worth stay in this hotel alone. The staff at reception are friendly and helpful. You also receive a free continental breakfast which is also excellent. There is also a café next door which have... More

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
