I stayed two nights on business and was pleasantly surprised Bob the Manger was very helpful and a good guide to the best places to eat. Quiet room an quite fridge and air-con. Easy walk to the shopping and food places. This is my accommodation preference in Nowra.

I have stayed at George Bass Motel on a few occasions. I am most impressed with the refurbishments done...most impressed wth the new Managers. Welcoming and professional. Close to mid town...walking distance and an easy walk. Breakfast reasonably priced and very nice. Thankyou for your hospitality.

Stayed here hears ago but not since the rooms were improved. We stayed in a back unit and thought that there was still some basic maintenance required. Unlike most motels in Nowra, this one is reasonably quiet and it is an easy walk to downtown. The rooms at the rear are larger and quieter. Parking is reasonably accessible. The relief... More

Stayed here for one night while on a business trip in the Shoalhaven area. Clean and comfortable, and I found the owners very friendly. Good water pressure in the shower. Though there is traffic on Bridge Road during the day, it dies down at night and I had no problems with noise from the road. There aren't many dining options... More

Was in Nowra for a few nights and booked into the George Bass Motor Inn. I booked into an Executive Queen Room which was perfect for my needs with the usual desk, couch and table. The motor inn was located close to the river and to the main shopping district, and for those wanting such, a pub was just a... More

One of the better situated motels in Nowra. Nice and close to the CBD - not that there is much to do in the Nowra CBD. ;) Clean, tidy, quiet and well kept. The room we had all the basic motel facilities - TV and Air Con - but included a kitchenette with a stove, a full sized fridge and... More

During our trip towards Sydney we stayed here for one night. After a warm and friendly welcome we went into our room. The room was clean - as was the carpet on the floor and the bathroom - and included a fridge, air conditioning and free wifi. The bed was comfortable as were the pillows. The motel is located near...

Our experience of wifi facilities in Australian motels is not a happy one. However here it was 100% ok. That apart the room was pleasant enough and the welcome friendly and efficient. The bathroom is clean and has has decent towels and toiletries and a powerful shower, sadly without a mixer tap. Facilities limited to a fridge and a kettle.... More

I've stayed here periodically over the years, after finding a dearth of decent accommodation in Nowra. Our last stay at Christmas reminded me of what a good place it is, ahead of far fancier accommodation in Australia in many aspects - the little things that count! If possible, ask for a room in the rear wing, parallel to the road.... More

Wow! What can I say? This motel is really welcoming - the owners were helpful and have a lovely sense of humour! Room was immaculate and well appointed. A sofa to lounge on - a real treat. Within walking distance of the shopping area and also a couple of pubs and club for a good meal. Would definitely stay there... More
