“Good Place to Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2014

Peaceful considering proximity to highway, with the air conditioner on. The staff are very pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was received at the time specified and was delicious. I was able to live when I was ready to, I simply left the key in the room and locked the door.

We stayed there for 2 nights in April 2014. The rooms are clean and large in size. Fast food restaurants are just opposite the road and easy to access. The only draw back is that this place is slightly far away from the Nowra town centre.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Stayed at this supposed 3.5 star motel several times over the last 6 years and I still can't work out how it can charge more than other motels in the chain it belongs to, nor how it has such a rating, when comparatively it is nowhere near as good in terms of quality or value for money. Probably the only major advantage to staying here is its location, with a minor nod to the relative quiet of the rooms even though it is right next to the Princes Hwy and a major intersection.

The rooms are very basic, with no minibar, small TV and simple fixtures. A cooked breakfast is hideously expensive for what you get, and room service for dinner is way over the top at an additional $5.00. Restaurant service is slow even when there are few diners, but I will acknowledge when you get your meal it's not bad. The front desk staff are pleasant but for anyone who has experienced plenty of other motels, particularly up and down the NSW south coast, this is one of the least favoured options.

A good, honest motel which we found to be very clean and comfortable. Mc Donald's is just across the road and it is situated fairly centrally to Nowra. If you want to stretch your legs you can take a walk to the local sports oval which is only a few minutes walk to the left of the hotel. The rooms were well furnished and we didn't experience any annoying road noise. Be aware that the A/C is rather noisy (as it is a wall unit), and the ceiling fan speed controller starts buzzing loudly which is rather annoying during the night. Overall though, highly recommended.

Room Tip: Room next to the swimming pool is the pick of the bunch.

We stayed here for three nights in January. Its very pleasant, clean, quite a large room and en suite, not too noisy. The couple that run it are very friendly and helpful - we had our laundry done in their industrial washer and dryer for only a few dollars! The breakfast (extra) was brought to our room and was very tasty. I think this couple have recently taken over from someone who had let the place run down and they are doing a very good job of it. Overall a good place to stay in Nowra

I highly recommend this motel for family, and couples. .
Its so clean, so cozy, and just next to MacDonald and KFC.
You will never find a motel as clean and tidy as this one.
The car parkings are awesome, because you just park you car in front of your door.

Altough close to main road, was very quiet with easy access. Room was well appointed and very confortable, while the chiropratic bed a joy to sleep on. Relatively new managers were keen to assist, and did so.
