Have stayed at Rockpool Motor Inn twice now and each time it has been fantastic. The staff are really helpful. The rooms are modern and clean. Its close to the centre of South West Rocks. About a 10 minute waik. Will stay here again when we come back.

This was our second stay at Rockpool. Liked it so much last year that we stopped here again on our way home, this time for 2 nights. We went to the restaurant on the Friday night and the food was good but not quite as good as last year. Unfortunately the restaurant was not open on the Saturday night as...

We stayed at the Rockpool Motor Inn on the basis of other reviews...and we were not disappointed....it is perhaps the best motel in which we have ever stayed at, or perhaps the motel that best suited our needs. Check in was friendly and efficient. Undercover parking was excellent, and it would allow access to the car in inclement weather. The...

My wife and I just spent our first week ever at South West Rocks. The Rockpool is a great place to stay. Very clean, friendly staff, great location, a short walk to the Country Club. The spa room unit was excellent, the room was serviced to the best standard I have ever seen. We had dinner at the restaurant, best...

Our quick break over two days was very restful at Rockpool, South West Rocks. There is much to do there, with Trial Bay, The Smoky Cape Lighthouse all within a few minutes drive. The restaurant has a fairly comprehensive menu and wine list. The room was spacious, although there is nothing much in the way of a view from the...

Stayed here for one night while away on business. Excellent location, clean and spacious room with kitchenette. The staff were friendly and the restaurant and the food pretty nice. Everything you want and need for one night away. We would have stayed another night but had to be back in our state the next night. Highly recommended!

Exceptional, friendly, helpful service and well appointed new room with comfy bed and pillows, great hot shower and simple functional kitchenette made the stay great. Didn't get to use the pool but the layout and surrounds were relaxing.
