Off the Highway about 3 km South of Nambucca Heads and set on 15 acres of nice open space. Parking is right at the door, and there's a central swimming pool The motel is dated and crying out for a complete makeover both inside and out. The garbage bins almost at reception are less than welcoming....especially when there's so much... More

Stayed here to break the journey from Brisbane to Sydney - it's right about half way. It's a typical midrange motel - good value and clean, if basic. Good value for the price. The location is good, because it's up a drive from the Pacific Highway, close enough to save time, but far enough to have no noise from the... More

We have stayed here many times, for an overnight stay, on our way to Queensland. It is off the noisy highway allowing for a good night's sleep. It is located on a river which offers beautiful views of the river. The room is clean and facilities good, with the added convenience of air conditioning and a microwave amongst the other... More

This is not the first time for me to stay at The Numbucca motel. The room is clean, food is nice, great water view and very quite. I recommend the place for families because it is close to town and attraction places and has plenty of ground level perking and big swimming pool. Also you can fish from the river... More

I am the first time at this Motel. My impression is very clean an da very good place to relax. The service is really friendly and the kitchen was quite good. You can choose a lot of dishes. From Western to Eastern food. What you like, just have to tell the owner. I am sure will come again next time.

I recently stayed at the Nambucca Motel for three nights and I found it to be a very clean, comfortable, and relaxing place to stay. The large grounds are well maintained and the river views at the rear of the motel are magnificent. My room was clean and comfortable and was great value as well. The staff were great and... More

Stay there for 1 night on way to Gold Coast. Went to have a shower in the morning no hot water. Not a good morning. For $155 for 1 night we wanted a good bed and hot shower both my family of 4 didn't get. Wouldn't stay there again if you paid me. :((

We have stayed at the Nambucca Motel several times over the past few years and find that the standard has dropped considerably during that time. We stayed there in February on our way to Newcastle and found the room was not up to standard, so requested a better room on our return early March. I was greeted by a very... More

A great spot on the river though not good value overall. VERY, VERY tired décor in rooms and restaurant. We booked for 3 persons and the room did not cater for that adequately. Better value elsewhere!
