Stayed 3 nights. Friendly helpful staff. Clean room with kitchenette and bathroom with big fluffy tiwels. Within walking distance of the beach and town. Had dinner in the restaurant one evening which also was lovely. Would stay again.

We visited this motel while on a road trip and found it extremely clean with comfy bedding - perfection after our long drive. The staff were friendly and helpful at all times. It also had a great restaurant and was in a good location within walking distance to the beach. Would definitely stay again.

We were stopping into South West Rocks to catch up with friends and booked the last room here. We arrived at 6.30pm after driving 12 hours. The staff were very friendly, the rooms large and very clean. Located opposite the Country Club and a short walk to the beach, cafes and pubs. Swimming pool looked nice but you had to...

Thank you for acknowledging our friendly team & glad you enjoyed your stay with us. As our restaurant overlooks the pool area we feel that it is important that guests dining in the restaurant can experience a relaxing atmosphere - the pool opens from 8am to 7pm. Look forward to you staying again!

We stayed for 2 nights last week. The motel is really nice and the gardens and pool are really lovely and immaculately maintained. The room was comfortable and modern - good quality sheets, which is my thing. We had dinner the first night in the restaurant, I had the Peking duck and was not sure how it would be, but...

A well appointed Motel with a lovely pool and restaurant. Undercover parking and walking distance to the local Country Club. Quiet enough to grab a nap through the day. The beds are very comfortable and the mini bar very reasonable priced. Staff all friendly and professional. Only downside is the kitchenette consists of microwave, sink, fridge and tea/coffee making facilities....

We were a couple travelling to to SWR to holiday with family and booked this motel through a third party booking agency. We had never visited SWR before and did not know what to expect, The Rockpool Motor Inn is less than ten minutes walk to the cafes and hotel and right next door to the Country Club. South West...

I recently stayed here with my partner, and it was perfect! Our room was a great size for 2, clean & quiet. The pool was very relaxing of an afternoon. This accommodation is close to the Country Club and a short 10 minute stroll to the main centre and Horseshoe Bay. We dined in the restaurant one night, the service...

The hotel is very well run and beautifully maintained. Our room was attractively decorated and comfortable. There are a few areas with tables outside. Parking is available underneath. Free wifi. It is an easy walk to the beach or to town.
