“Travelled for Beatlegs gig”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

Very friendly reception, pool was lovely, spa bath was great. Having brekkie and the paper delivered to the door was a great experience as well (not one I had enjoyed for a very long time...didn't realise there were any motels that still did this). The rooms were bright and airy, and clean. King size bed (found the mattress a little firm, but still slept ok). Pool was great, there are modern bbq facilities as well. The bbq has a side burner as well, Only a small fridge and limited crockery, but if you wanted to stay a few nights, and eat in, it could be done. Unit contains a microwave as well.
On the down side we had our door open and cigarette smoke came wafting in from another guest, sitting outside his room. Mosquitoes were bad. Had to have breakfast inside (there was a write up in the local paper about this, it was due to king tides, and there was water left laying on the land) Also had a friendly toad greet me at the door when we came home from gig (grrrr, wretched creatures).
Definitely would stay here again.

Room Tip: We stayed in number 12, with neighbours on one side and above only.

Dear ERB61,

Thank you for your review. Sorry about the cigarette smoke, a little bit out of our control, but we do notice fewer and fewer guests smoking these days.

We saw the "Beatlegs" on their last visit to Yamba and thoroughly enjoyed the show.

See you again some time.

kind regards,

Graham and Bronnie

Bronnie ( The owner) has to be one of the most welcoming hotel owners you will come across ( and more importantly, genuine!)
The Aston is centrally located in the heart of Yamba and each room has everything you need.
The beds are really comfortable and big and the rooms were spotlessly clean.
would highly recommend this motel, we will def be back ( we paid a little bit more than the average for a motel room BUT it was new years eve period so to be expected, look forward to re visiting in the off season and paying a little bit less)

Room Tip: WE stayed an extra night and were moved from Room 14 - room 17 , same room layout exactly and same p...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Stayed here for a night just after New Years. The motel was full (I think most if not all motels in town were) due to peak season. The room was comfortable, with a sliding door accessing the balcony overlooking the pool and spa. There was a microwave and fridge in the room, flat screen telly and good bathroom. I did have trouble getting the water temperature right in the shower (it would go hot and cold) but that is probably because the motel was full.

The bowling club and Golf Club is a short walk. We also walked over the hill to the beach which was a nice way to end the day.

We left our pillows in the room, and the manager called to let us know (Unfortunately I didnt check my phone until I was in Coffs Harbour). It was very nice of them to let us know.

Stayed at this clean motel for 3 nights last month. In a quiet location, Friendly welcome from the owner. Seemed popular with coach parties. Large comfortable bed. Good shower. Easy parking. Small balcony outside room with table and chairs. Our room overlooked the swimming pool. A selection of DVDs can be borrowed from reception. Used the laundry and washing line.
Motel is in a good location for exploring the area. Nice to see the kangaroos each morning and evening.

Would recommend the rainforest walk at the Iluka Nature Reserve.

I have stayed at the Yamba Aston a couple of times now and am staying there again soon. I see no reason to stay anywhere else as I frequently visit Yamba. The motel itself has been recently painted inside and out and provides very comfortable rooms with large TV's and large king size beds. I believe the motel will have a lift soon to give people an option not to access the stairs for the upper 12 rooms, the stairs are not hard on the legs anyway but if you're getting older like myself with a problematic knee it gives you an option to access and choose any room. The rooms are also maintained and cleaned very well and the staff and managers go out of their way to make sure your stay is a comfortable one. As soon as you walk through the office door they are very friendly and freely offer good advice where to go and what to do in Yamba in relation to attractions and places to eat etc. The location of the motel is in a quiet street and you often see kangaroos across the road. It is also located near and in walking distance to the main shops, a gym and a bowling club. I am looking forward to many more stays there.

Room Tip: All of the rooms I have stayed in have been of the same excellent quality. As far as I know they are...

Hi Jason,
Thank you for what looks like to be your inaugural review.
Keep it up with all places you visit.
We are happy that you have enjoyed your stays here.
The lift has finally arrived from Italy and is being installed.
Should be done by this weekend.

It was so nice there we stayed an extra night and that was with the hot rodders convention taking rooms there as well. The beds are great and perhaps I have already mentioned it is really quiet. Easy to walk to restaurants and shopping centre from there and well located for a walk along the river to the river mouth and along the breakwall. They have a special on whereby you get a free cooked breakfast by mentioning Trip Advisor. At $99 for a couple with a king size bed, excellent value.

It was nice to have you here.
Our 'Free Breakfast Special' is popular and one only has to mention it to get it.

Great location walk to shops & clubs at the end of a quiet street. Early in the morning there are kangaroos on the football field practically opposite. There is a gym next door which is available for use by guests. Wonderful hosts - obviously loved the motel as you could see by the care taken.
