Stayed for work for 2 weeks. Owners were lovely and friendly. I dropped something unpacking my car and didn't realize and they found it and gave it to me the next morning. Apartment was well set up and clean. Dark gray bath towels instead of the normal hotel white were amazing! Fluffy and comfy with no make up stains :)... More

Great location, clean and tidy rooms. Very nice friendly staff. Car parking is good, the views and the peacefulness of the place is the real attraction.' Paynesville is a quiet place so make sure you don't leave it til late to get something to eat as the town is closed after 8PM. If your going to paynesville stay here.

My wife and I were after a peacefull and relaxing week away and found that and more at the Mariners Cove. The motel room (No.1) was excellent. It was clean, fresh and up to date. The bed was very comfortable and we both slept well without waking up with a sore back. The bathroom was large and well appointed. The... More

Came across this place when looking for somewhere to break a long trip. Very impressed with queen room with lovely patio onto canal- value for money. Walking distance to shops etc. Will be back for a longer stay.

We had a gathering of nine couples as part of a reunion. We had previously stayed in apartments at Urunga (near Coffs Harbour) so we were not sure whether this would come up to the same standards. From the moment we arrived we felt welcome and the rooms were neat, attractive and appeared to have been freshly decorated. The location... More

Spent two nights at this motel. Great place to stay. Close to shops and ferry. We had a motel room overlooking the water which really suited us. The rooms are typical motel rooms but clean and well equipped. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Paynesville is a very special place to visit, especially Raymond Island and the koalas.

We stayed here for 1 night. We had a motel unit which backed onto the mariner. The room was a good size and the outlook at the back was really nice and relaxing. The only negative would be no internet service. It is a 2 min walk to the ferry to Raymond Island which is free for walking passengers. It... More

This was our second stay at the motel and while the location is great the rooms really could do with a makeover. You get a basic room which is clean but the tv is small by today's standard and the bathrooms could do with an upgrade. I found the service to be very good with no issues of rudeness that... More

Having booked a unit rather than a motel room we were very disappointed with our accommodation. The units all look onto the roundabout which is the only way onto the Raymond Island ferry, so are quite noisy and lack privacy. The units are basic, tired and dated and need a lot of tlc to get them up to scratch. We... More

Paynesville was attractive because we wanted to visit Raymond Island to see the koalas, which we did and thoroughly enjoyed. Our room at Mariners Cove was very big, modern, clean and comfortable. In the morning we walked down to the shops and visited one of the local bakeries. We brought our breakfast back and sat on our sunny verandah to... More
