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!

I was travelling back from Queensland with my mother and little dog on 4 Jan 2014 and we were looking for somewhere to stay around Coffs Harbour/Nambucca Heads region. Because of the holiday season it was quite hard to get in anywhere. I sent off an email enquiry on 8 Dec 2013 asking about pet friendly rooms. I didn't receive... More

Great motel if you love your pooch and are wanting to travel with them. I stayed there with my partner and would not stay there again as with the other reviews the rooms did need some airing out. I gather the odour was from dogs being in the rooms with there owners that I witnessed. The room I stayed in... More

My wife and I stayed one night in the Nambucca Motel, on our way to Brisbane, on 22nd December 2013. The owner, Melody Ng, was extremely rude to us from the very beginning. It was late when we called in looking for a place to sleep for a few hours. She answered the night bell but was nasty from the... More

A very large room great for a family. Free wifi excellent but mobile reception poor. The place is dated but clean. The restaurant is not good. Poor quality steak and under cooked. The location on the river is pleasant and is well off the highway so quiet and peaceful

Can't argue with a lot of the other reviews on trip advisor about this place. The smell in the room was like the room hadn't been aired out in 6months. Got a family room for $175, 1 x queen and 2 singles. The location is quiet good on the river and I couldn't hear the traffic from the highway so... More

Horrible service, I could not believe how rude and inhospitable the owner (that's right! The actual owner!) was to us. When we arrived there was no power anywhere in the motel so obviously asked to be refunded to find somewhere else with power. She initially refused and offered a candle! After arguing with her about the cost of the room... More

On the weekend of the 17th August 40 of my friends and I stayed at the Nambucca Motel. The location is fantastic right on the river, the restaurant and the licensed bar area was great, and the rooms were clean and very comfortable looking over the river. And everything is priced well. The staff could not do enough for us.... More

The room was so chemically pungent it was hard to breathe. There was not a window that would open to flush out the smell and the air conditioning didnt work until the managed did something with the remote outside. With a near empty motel I was unable to change rooms.... I was actually prepared to sleep in the car and... More
