Not quite what was advertised.'Reception area looked very nice, and staff were friendly. The Room we had booked was very old and tired. Dirty walls , chipped paint, quite depressing.. Was not dirty but very average. The pleasant surprise was the breakfast room which is very well appointed and served a nice breakfast. Am wondering if this Motel is in... More

I travel a lot for work and this has the honour of being the second worst motel I have ever stayed in. I would have listed it as the worst but at least it was clean...I think. The room stank of cheap air freshener so badly that I had to air it out for an hour which meant sitting in... More

Stayed here on Friday night, Our welcome to the motel by Tea was very friendly and couldn't do enough to answer all our enquiries about tours for the following day. Room was clean, spacious and everything we could ask for. Great location and easy to find on the main highway but there was no traffic noise to speak of. Bistro... More

We booked Archer Resort as it looked ok on the website. WRONG!! This has to be one of the worst motels I have stayed in. Firstly went to the 'restaurant' for dinner. My mothers fish was raw and sent back then my partners scotch fillet had been bashed out, if it was even scotch? Absolutely destroyed a decent cut of... More

Just arrived home after a 5 night stay. First impressions were of a large old motel with nice, friendly staff. Our room was old but clean with crisp linen& fluffy towels. Didn't risk a trip to the hotel for dinner as it looked pretty rough (like the rest of Nowra, actually). The nightly musical entertainment from the resident drunken kiwis... More

Stayed with a mature aged group over a weekend. We are well experienced budget travellers and didn't expect a grand experience. The Motel is certainly down at heel and not graciously. However the rooms were basically clean, the sheets and towels crisp and the TV, Aircon and fridge all worked. The staff were pleasent and attentitive and the Pub food... More

Stayed here overnight as a last resort (I hesitate to use that word). As we approached the room, the overgrown garden and verandah, the ripped curtains and the empty beer box outside prepared us for what was to come.The room smelt strongly of carpet deodorising powder. The "hygienically cleaned and sanitised for your protection " toilet seal belied the evidence... More

The room given to us did not reflect the photos on their website. All the bathroom taps leaked, broken/chipped tiles in the shower which had no soap holder, Looked like the entry door had a boot kick scar. 2 room A/C drains leaking over tiled walk way making a slip hazard, pool tiles dirty. The property in general is poorly... More

This motel is behind a large pub and a liquor chain store is being built immediately adjacent. Accordingly access is a bit of a challenge. The "road" is in very poor condition. Also access to the pub is restricted by temporary fences so you are probably better off using the car. My budget room was of a good size having... More
