Great find and well worth staying in Yamba for. Fantastic waterfront spot on the river especially for families and fishing. All rooms have balconies, are comfortable, clean and large. Staff are friendly and helpful. Seafood café next door, however it does close at 7pm so not great for late diners. I would recommend booking ahead and requesting a downstairs room... More

We have stayed at Moby Dick many times and prefer to an actual apartment. It's right on the river and the ground floor rooms are well positioned with a balcony and steps down to the large lawn area and the jetty out onto the river. Staff are always very helpful - nothing is too much trouble. If you want seafood... More

Overnight stay in a waterfront ground floor room with gorgeous view over the river with boats, pelicans, fisherman and just peace and calm. Exterior balcony with two chairs table overlooking the view. Morning sun in our room was beautiful! Room was apartment sized and certainly geared for a longer stay. Free WiFi. Breakfast was cooked to perfection, Helpful staff. 20... More

Great location opposite the water. A terrific property with everything you could wish for in a small country town. Has great indoor and outdoor barbecue areas. Only problem was that the room fridge was SO cold it froze the lettuce and cucumber - the least of our worries!!

We have just stayed for 2 nights and this is definitely a resort rather than a motel in my view. The location and views are unbeatable, and the rooms are very spacious and comfortable, more like a small apartment. We especially appreciated the kitchen with full size fridge as we like to travel with food and drinks. We slept so... More
