I sent my husband here for a week in late March to go fishing and he really enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere of both the town of Yamba and the Sun Motel, despite the less than perfect weather. The owner operators of the motel couldn't have been nicer when I made the booking and they went out of their way to... More

My family and I had the best weekend! We were warmly greeted after a long 6+ hour drive from home and settled quickly into our 2 bed family unit. The unit was large and clean and very comfortable. My daughter and I went straight for a swim in the lovely pool and felt refreshed. The Motel is in easy walking... More

Was travelling requiring only a short overnight stop with late arrival and early departure. Even though I'd booked through another site, when I rang to confirm the late arrival arrangements the staff were very friendly and accommodating. The room was very clean and generous in size, more importantly the bed was comfortable. I would stay again if travelling in the... More

Two old surfies stayed there for one night and found the unit very clean and tidy, and close to everything. The owner was extremely friendly and helpful. Would recommend, and certainly would stay there again.

The delightful Bonnie came out to greet us as we drove up to the motel late in the afternoon. As with other reviewers, we were on a long road trip, tired and just looking for a place to sleep. Bonnie gave us a ground floor room (#11) and invited us to park our vehicle with boat trailer right outside our... More

Fantastic motel, well located near Yamba town and beaches. The motel is clean, modern and well appointed. The service provided by the owners is exceptional and they always strive to look after their guests. Would thoroughly recommend this motel.

After driving all day we just wanted somewhere reasonably priced, clean, friendly with a pool. The Yamba Sun Motel fulfilled all our needs and was the cheapest out of 3 we looked at. We spent a divine hour in the pool which was just outside our back door. Yes we would happily stay again!

Very, very helpful. Great location. Close to riverside walk. Clean & well maintained. Definitely going back. We took our motorbike in the back of our van. The owner/manager helped me unload it from the van & let me keep it secured in his private garage. As a motorbike owner himself he then told me of some of the great rides... More
