Stayed here for a week whilst at a workshop. A delightful spot with the most amazing magnesium pool for relieving aches and pains. Spotlessly clean, this older style hotel comes with wonderful old fashioned country hospitality. June looked after us so well with great breakfasts each morning and great suggestions for places to eat. Will be back for sure.

Perfect spot to stay the night within close range to Coffs Harbour but without the expensive holiday price. Very welcoming owner of the motel who also can make a delicious coffee to kick start your day. We nearly drove past after catching a glimpse of the motel from the outside but the rooms are actually quite homely and the area... More

Stopped on a trip with our van from Evans Head to Sydney to go to the Driver Reviver. As unable to cross the Pacific Hwy because of the Christmas holiday traffic in both directions, we saw the Café. We purchased a coffee (fantastic) so pleased we did not get run over trying to get to the Driver Reviver. Had a... More

I have stayed in this property many times. June and Adriaan are lovely people, only too happy to assist in any way that they can. The rooms are spotless, the beds are terrific, the showers are excellent, and always there is the hosts, ready with a hint on where to go, or what to do. Give this property a go,... More

This little motel is a home away from home. The owner is a genuine, hospitable person, who does all she can to make your stay is a pleasant one. Sure it's not 5 star but does not claim to be. If you want, clean, comfortable and value for money, then this little motel is for you. I'll be back again!!

Visiting Urunga for a holiday was made more pleasant by our stay at the Kalang River Motel, the hosts were most accommodating, and full of information on the local attractions and good places to eat. June made some of the best coffee I have enjoyed and the breakfast was excellent. The room was clean and parking was easy. We also... More

I stayed here for a few days, the pool was perfect, the staff seemed to do anything to help out. The owner brought me an iron and ironing board, and my breakfast to my room. I would recommend a night to anyone.

Not worth one star. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME HERE! The owner is rude and inconsiderate of guests possessions and there needs when it comes to parking. Just received complete rudeness from the owner which is ridiculous considering it is a small town. She doesn't understand common human courtesy!

The motel has all mod cons - including a gorgeous heated mineral pool and the world's best coffee! - but the setting is pure gorgeous 1960s beach shack. So lush and green. And the service from June is outstanding - so friendly and easy going. Wish we could move there!
