Room was dirty, the window ledge in the shower was covered in cobwebs and flies, the carpets were so sticky I didn't want to walk around in bare feet. The worst part was we ate in the restaurant. We paid our bill, my husband & I paid by debit card, my parents paid cash. We were contacted 3 months after... More

We had a beautiful view of the riverfront from our bedroom window. The room was a great size for the 2 of us, room was clean, lovely function setting and the staff were very friendly. The only downfalls were how close the motorway was with trucks driving passed and that it was not close to much in Nambucca Heads. Otherwise,... More

I was there during Christmas time. The service was excellent and the staff was very nice. Rooms are clean and my wishes were totally cover by team. Will come back for sure next year. The whole place were made very well. Garden was clean and the round pool was very relaxing. Maybe this pool can be a little bit bigger... More

After a somewhat interesting welcoming by Melody at the Nambucca Motel, any first impression feelings were won over by the amazing Chinese restaurant, the river views an beautiful pool. After being here 3weeks I've become to know this cheeky lady "Melody" who could brighten the darkest room. Will never forget

My wife and I stayed here several weeks ago on our way to Queensland. Our room appeared pleasant enough on first inspection however after an ordinary Chinese meal in their restaurant we retired for the evening and then noticed the stink from what seems to be a very old and unclean carpet. YUK. The dated surroundings and miserable caged cockatoo,... More

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
