As a business traveler, I stay at a lot of hotels and motels around country NSW, but this is one of my favourites. The restaurant would have the best standard of food that I have ever encountered in rural NSW, it truly is fine dining, the chef is always coming up with interesting and delicious flavour combinations.

We were lucky enough to get allocated a recently refurbished double room on a winter’s Monday night having only booked a couple of hours earlier via phone after discovering their advert in a travel guide. The bedroom was separate to a living area like a mini apartment. The décor was comfortable and modern with a hint of a 1930’s influence.... More

This motel is a bit old on the outside but the rooms are not. The bathroom is really modern with a huge shower, separate bedroom and a balcony you can have your morning coffee whilst taking in the views of the coastline and the bird life of the area. I really enjoyed my stay.

Great views from pretty much all the rooms. The beds are very comfortable and the lounges very cozy. Jen and Matt are great people who are easy to have a chat with, provide you with all you need and wil even keep the bar open for you. The attached restaurant is fantastic, especially the home made sour dough and dips.... More

We stayed for one night. Good location, u have nice walks from there, the staff was welcoming and helping. The room is clean and has a nice balcony. Price is fair also. To the owner, if u read this: the room looks a little old, we suggest to give a little attention to the decoration and small details such as... More

We arrived at 5.15pm. They were anticipating our arrival and greeted us by name as we presented at Reception. They knew we had a dog. They knew we needed 2 rooms. The Unit was spacious, the bathroom was clean and the shower large enough to actually shower in!! Good water pressure too. We asked about eateries for our evening meal... More

This is our 4th stay at the Whale Inn and every time we are impressed. We were travelling with a group and booked 12 rooms. The rooms are very clean and modern. The bed was comfortable and there was plenty of hot water and good shower pressure. Executive Suite 10 is very spacious with a lovely deck with water views.... More

Just had to write and say what a wonderful time I had at the Whale Motor Inn. I was hungry and tired when seated for my dinner. The service was outstanding as was the food. Probably the best Bloody Marys I've ever had - and I would know! The chicken terrine was perfect and the Angus steak was awesome. I... More

My friend and l spent a week here in an executive suite and the best thing was our view. OMG it was lovely to wake up to, and to have afternoon nibbles and dinner on our deck. Very nice to swim in the pool and read our books by the pool. The two girls that made up our room every... More
