Very clean & well appointed. Staff/Owners very friendly & accommodating. Comfortable beds & shower pressure which can take an eye out. No views of any description, but close to local country club. Which could be good or bad.

A great place to stay. Very welcomed on arrival, undercover parking, very quiet location, room was warm and clean. Would highly recommend this Motel and would definitely stay at Rockpool on our next visit. South West Rocks is a lovely spot to stay.

It looked like our rooms were newly renovated. Opened the door to find a very clean and spacious room. A queen and single bed, kitchen and good size bathroom! Close to everything, this place may be a street away from the ocean but well worth the walk.

We found this hotel to be a great experience. The lady at check-in was friendly and helpful. Our room was lovely, neat, clean and well above-average in fit-out and decor. Beautiful soft linen/towels too. We dined at the in-house restaurant and found the serves to be generous, great value for money and thought the food was tasty and definitely fresh/local... More

Just stayed with my wife & two daughters and we were very impressed with The Rockpool. Very pleasant & helpful Managers, our Room was spotlessly clean, very modern ( just renovated like brand new ), great comfy bed and very quiet, so we all slept beautifully. This place is more like a Resort than a Motel, under-ground under-cover secure parking,... More
