“Clean, comfortable and good location.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

We stayed at Miramar Motel for 3 nights in December. We had a 2 room suite which was large and very clean. The view from the balcony is lovely. The location is perfect being less than 5 minutes to Woolworths and only a few extra minutes walk to the rest of the shopping area. The RSL which serves very good inexpensive meals is right next door and there is direct access to the boardwalk around the river. The only negative was that the swimming pool was always full of leaves and didn't appear to have been cleaned in the 3 days we were there.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

Just returned to Sydney after our third overnight stay at this great Motel in the last six months. Very reasonably priced, clean, comfortable and well-equipped rooms with lovely river and ocean views. We took advantage of this by having pre-dinner drinks at the table outside our room, before heading next door to the RSL for a hearty dinner. On each of our visits we have enjoyed the beautiful walk along the river, accessed from the rear of the Motel. Lindsay is the perfect host, and has been most helpful in guiding us to great spots for a coffee on our way north or south. As we have family located near Currumbin in Queensland, we intend making this our regular 'half way house' in the future.

Stayed here on trip south. Great position with beautiful view out back across the river. Clean comfortable hotel right beside the RSL. This was a plus and negative for us as we had a good meal there but the music was loud on a Saturday night and went till 11.00pm. If you are up late or can sleep through loud music this would not be problem. When we arrived we went for a walk down hill along river. There is a lovely park down there where families could relax. Motel has lovely pool area out the back with a beautiful outlook. Garden is well kept. The noise was reason I rated this motel 3 stars. Without this I would have given it 4. Motels like this run by the owner usually off better and more personal service. This is the case here. I would recommend it.

Dear Mrs Smith,
Thank you for your kind comments.
Yes we are beside the RSL club as you say, this is very convenient for our guests who know this motel and stay here because of that fact.
The RSL do have music/bands some weekends and some Sunday afternoons.
We do have an understanding with the RSL to cease all music/bands at 10.30 pm.
The Rebel Rousers were playing that night and I am sorry that it disturbed you.
We have noted this on the computer and will locate your next stay in a quieter position.
Glad the NRMA got you underway finally.
Kind regards, Lindsay/owner/manager

We stayed there the other night as blow-ins. Very reasonable tariff for a nice, clean and comfortable room with a great outlook. The property is fastidiously maintained and ideally located in the town centre and literally right next door to the RSL club for good dining and drinking. Lindsay went right out of his way to help us when our old 1955 Oldsmobile wouldn't start. The NRMA won't provide road service for these things but Lindsay helped us diagnose the problem and drove us to the local Repco store for a new battery, even offering his own NRMA card for a 10% discount. A lovely bloke. If you stay there, you will not regret it.

Lindsay & Mary were welcoming hosts. We spent 3 night in the spacious accommodation of an upstairs suite which had a well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds and a pleasant lounge area with views across the river. Rooms were very clean and serviced every day with fresh towels. Good kitchen facilities to self cater. A Woolworth 5 minutes walk up the hill offers extensive choice and a bottle store at the RSL club next door. Excellent free wifi available.
Good location to walk along the river and out to the Vwall, Wellington beach and Shelley beach. All round a very relaxing stay.

Originally planned an overnight stay but within half an hour of booking in we extended it another night. Very helpful staff. Units have front and back entrance hence making it airy. Back door opens onto a beautiful garden with views of the river and ocean. Quiet due to cu-de-sac location. Barbeque available as an alternative to eating out- provide basket with utensils, plates etc., laundry facilities, pool, all you need for a comfortable stay. Close to everything. Would stay again and highly recommend.

What an awesome motel. We had a room on the ground level with sliding door opening up onto the garden area, right near the pool. With the Nambucca River right outside, this motel has excellent views and a beautiful walk down to the river. The room itself was spacious with plenty of desk space and a small table and chairs. The room was very clean. With screens on the windows and sliding door, it was beautiful to have the windows open and let the lovely breeze in (air-con is another option if it's really hot).

The staff are very friendly and make a home cooked breakfast delivered to your room and a time convenient to you - nice way to start the day.

Would definitely stay at this motel again if I'm in the area.
