“Find somewhere else”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

I travel a lot and never have I come across such a rude host. Absolutely everything puts him out so don't ask for anything. Likewise if you leave anything behind... He refuses to return it and even said to me "it's your own fault for leaving it behind". My company won't be staying here again..

The service was excellent and friendly.
The rooms were always cleaned and serviced, and great facilities!
If you're looking at a respected and decent place to stay in Grafton and is great for value of money!

Room Tip: Try to get the room further from the road.

If you like the sound of trucks screaming past your window all night, hard beds, low water pressure and rude hosts, then this is the place for you.
With this hotel being on the crest of a hill, the noise of the sem-trailers is high and continous. So if you are a light sleeper, beware.
On the positive side, the rooms and complex are very clean.

Room Tip: At the back, far from the road as possible.

I stayed here with family overnight during the Grafton Jacaranda Festival. The motel is close to the Pacific Hwy, however there was minimal noise during the night, and certainly not enough to wake me up. The room itself was like a small apartment with a separate bedroom and small kitchen alcove. The room was very clean, the facilities all in good working order. The only minor complaint I have is about the water pressure and temperature regulation which could have been better. The staff were all very friendly. I'd stay here again on one of my regular trips up to Brisbane.

We called ahead to say we would be late arrivals. Room was ready for us and owner was ok with late arrival. Rooms were spacious and clean. A little noisy due to the highway and rail line, but was still able to sleep.

Stayed 1 night on route to Brisbane. Excellent value with very large 2 room units and were very clean & tidy with well kept gardens and parking areas. Would highly reccommend this motel for weary travellers. Plenty of fast food restaurants nearby.
