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

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
