5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed a week at this exceptionally clean and friendly motel. We had a large bedroom with more than adequate space to chill out after spending the day elsewhere. The current managers are a delightful and welcoming couple with eye for service. The location is perfect being within walking distance to the river, restaurants , shops and tennis courts.

We returned to this Motel after some years as a stopover on our way to and from Newcastle. We once again really enjoyed our stay and found the Motel even more lovely and very comfortable. There are new owners since our previous stay who were very welcoming and gave wonderful service. We stayed in one of the larger corner rooms... More

Easily the best accommodation in Nambucca Heads. Well priced and appointed rooms and great service also. Located in a beautiful and quiet part of the heads in close proximity to good local pubs and restaurants.

Brisbane friends recommended we stopover here and we were lucky to take the last room booking. Very comfortable rooms with everything one could need. We had a back room but the side windows had a view to the water. Fantastic hot breakfast included in the room rate. We may have had a family room as there were bunk beds as... More

For every reason, we are so glad we made the diversion into this charming little spot, Nambucca Heads. It has not been monstered like Byron and is still quiet, natural, and old... More

Spent only one night but would return when in area. Located away from main streets, but only a few seconds drive, this motel has excellent views of the river and surf. Some restaurants are nearby, otherwise a steep walk, or short drive, will take you to the small shopping area. David and Bozena are excellent hosts. They greeted me in... More

We booked at the Riverview for an overnight stop on the drive from Sydney to Brisbane and were glad we did. Nambucca Heads, like may coastal towns is now by-passed and you have to leave the highway to get to this quiet, pleasant location. The rooms are a good size and have a small balcony where you can sit and... More

We stay here on a regular basis as it is close to half way when driving from Brisbane to Sydney. The building has some history and has been well restored while keeping its character.
