A very clean , roomy and welcoming motel. We spent only one night but will return on our next visit. The staff were very helpful as I had some difficulty with my internet and it was quickly sorted. The restaurant wasn't open on the Saturday night which was a nuisance so we had our evening meal in the town which... More

Hi Jenny, Sorry our restaurant is not open on weekends. The reason being a lot of guests that stay with us on the weekend are hear for family functions birthday parties, engagement, weddings, and sporting events so the restaurant patronage tends to be low on weekends, unlike week days when we have a lot of business guests. Glad we were... More

On average I stay here when visiting Raymond Terrace for business overnight. I have stayed at other sites but always come back to this Motor Inn. The staff are very friendly and welcoming, the restaurant food is modern, extremely well cooked and tasty. When I last stayed in February 2014 the menu had been changed which I was advised was...

I stayed for two nights on my own. The staff were fantastic, extremely helpful and friendly. Rooms are basic but very clean and tidy with everything you need at hand. The restaurant serves quality food at great prices. It's a short trip from the airport and not far off the highway for those travelling by road. Would definitely stay again... More

Our family of five stayed overnight (a total of 7 hours!) in a two room unit. Although the decor is a little dated the unit is in great condition and the bathroom had been recently renovated. Awesome water pressure in the shower! Very clean, and the managers were friendly and efficient. We checked in after 10pm which wasn't a problem.

We stayed in a family room on our way back from Noosa to Sydney. Arriving very late at night with 2 small sleeping children and no booking we received a warm welcome with the manager even offering to help us with our bags. We can't recommend this motel highly enough. The beds were so comfortable, the aircon brand new and... More

We stayed just one night to break up the trip and it was just great. The manager took a phone booking late in the day and was most helpful when we arrived. The room was clean and tidy, spacious and good value for money. Would happily stay again.

I'd been driving most of the day and pulled off at the Raymond Terrace exit, even though we couldn't find anything in our RACV guide (turns out it's under Port Stephens!). Drove past one place that looked a little dodgy and then came across the Colonial Terrace. And lucky we did. The staff member we dealt with was exceptionally helpful.... More

No accommodation available when we called in, but owners went "above and beyond" to help us find rooms further up the coast and we are very grateful for all their help. Thanks again from Scott and Karen :)

Great, friendly staff, who would do everything necessary to ensure a good stay. Wonderful comfortable rooms, with great showers. Easy access. Would recommend it as a great stopping place or somewhere for a longer holiday.
