Driving from Brisbane to Sydney we started to panic about getting a room for the night so we pulled off the highway to this motel. The lady (originally from Glasgow ) was very pleasant and helpful. Too be honest the accommodation was just to tired and dated for us and needs a complete makeover. Whilst the highway is fairly quiet... More

I booked this Motel without realising how noisy the highway in NSW can be. First of all the Motel was fine and although we were in an older unit everything was as expected. It was clean, well equipped and the internet was excellent. The lady proprietor was extremely pleasant and welcoming. I held off from posting this review as I... More

Whilst perhaps not an obvious place to stop for the night when travelling down the NSW coast, Uranga was a pleasant surprise with it's riverfront, lagoon and great boardwalk. The motel was the cheapest we stayed in during 6 weeks in Aus, and whilst the units are elderly, the interior had been nicely renovated. Yes, there is noise from the... More

I'm glad you discovered some of the reasons that we love Urunga and were able to enjoy the boardwalk and the river while you stayed with us. Your kind comments are greatly appreciated and I'm glad you enjoyed our coffee too. Thanks again. More

This is a clean basis motel that lies parallel to the highway. We had a very bad night sleep because of the noise from the nearby highway with heavy lorries all night long. The bathroom window has sloped slats that don't close and therefore you couldn't block out the noise. Would not stay here again.

I am so sorry that the noise from the highway spoiled your stay with us. The work to move the highway 4k west of us has begun so maybe we could hope to see you again once the highway has been moved. Thank you for acknowledging the cleanliness of our little motel. More

I've stayed here over the years from time to time. June has always offered such warm, genuine and generous hospitality in addition to the cleanest, simple yet comfortable rooms - all now renovated whilst maintaining beautiful 50s floorboards and charm. The linen is fresh, clean and odourless - no nasty chemicals used here or in the room deodorising. The property... More

I heartily recommend the KRM. Key points: VERY clean rooms, brand new (and very slick) bathrooms, espresso drinks are available for purchase at the office, free excellent Wi-Fi, and immensely convenient location for a coastal drive. The only downside is some road noise, but our earplugs remedied that (and the fact that interior walls are brick insures that room-to-room noise... More

My husband and I recently stayed three nights at this motel. Don't be mislead by first appearances. This is a very clean and comfortable motel and has a lovely charm about it. The rooms have been refurbished tastefully keeping the homely feel of the place. I loved the little cafe attached to the motel. It was relaxing to just have... More

Stayed here for a night recently when I had to visit relatives in Urunga for a funeral. This is a small motel right on the Princes Highway (so BYO earplugs as it's noisy with 24 hr traffic from trucks, etc) run by a lovely family who make you feel very welcome. The rooms are small and basic, but have some... More
