having stayed at this motel on a number of occasions whilst breaking up a long trip I definitely recommend taking a superior room if there are three of you with the family hound. So much more spacious and comfortable than the other standard rooms. I am also a bit secretly in love with the decor of this place and would... More

The motel sits on the Pacific Highway but far enough back to not be troubled by noise. It sits directly on the Nambucca river & perfect for fishing... Rods can be hired for $5 per day from reception. We stayed in a 3 person room & found it very comfortable, well serviced & clean. It had a very quite, powerful... More

A late night arrival with key kindly left under the entry mat was the end of the good experiences. Just one night to break up a long trip, rest was all we required. Well, resting whilst being bitten all night by bed bugs and the vulgar stains of bodily fluids on the sheets. Sleeping was near impossible. I will go... More

To be fair, I always start a review with 5 stars. So after 11 hours of driving, we arrived at 7.15pm. It was absolutely POURING with rain & we just wanted to get to our room. We are a couple, who travelled with my sister-in-law, her husband & 6yo son. I had read some terrible reviews on Tripadvisor & decided... More

We approached the Nambucca Motel along a palm-lined, dusty pebble driveway. Nothing could have prepared us for what we were going to experience. Adjacent to reception was a battalion of wheelie garbage bins, standing to attention, as if to welcome us, but reeking of 3 day old seafood. As we approached the reception entry, we were greeted at the doorway... More

Had to do a straight through trip from Canberra to Townsville last week. My passengers included two beautiful canines, so we needed appropriate accommodation. My daughter researched the web for a bit and came up with this property - well now I need to praise and criticise - the property is aged, early 70s I'd say, and needs some investment... More

We were driving Canberra to Brisbane with a 6 month old so this was the perfect location to break up the drive. The motel is right off the highway so no need to detour and the on site restaurant has a traditional and Chinese menu making dinner easy. Room was large and clean.

It should have told us something that this was the only place that had vacancies in the Coffs Harbour, Nambucca area on a weekend recently when there was a big football comp on. Everything else was booked out. Where do we start! The whole place is stuck in a 70's time warp, the bathroom was old and very shabby, with... More

The Nambucca motel is located off the pacific hwy, down a long pebbled driveway, so there is no road noise. That may well be the high point. This hotel is tired and in desperate need of renovation. It has all the fittings required, such as microwave, jug, small fridge, hair dryer, ceiling fan, air con but it is wrapped in... More
