I was really happy with my stay from comfort to food. The pool looked inviting and a large sports club is located nearby for variety. My mean was expertly cooked and very enjoyable. Wine list is short but a couple of nice choices. Overall I'd recommend to all and will certainly return.

What a lovely place. Very nicely appointed and comfortable, slept like logs :-) Easy walk to the centre of town, found a wonderful Chinese restaurant which we at in. Hosts were helpful and welcoming/ We were very happy to have stayed here and will definitely return. Great little half way stop between Brisbane and Sydney.

Stayed here with my friend. The place is reasonable clean. I noticed that mainly elderly people stay here. Not much to do just a place to sleep when you visit South West Rocks. For what is offered I thinks it's a little overpriced for $140 a night.

The Rockpool Motel in South West Rocks is the perfect accommodation in a beautiful coastal setting. Very friendly helpful staff. Rooms are large with all mod cons: big TV with USB and HDMI ports, free wi-fi etc. Comfy bed. We are told the restaurant has excellent meals, but a little up- market and dear. One thing: if you contemplate a... More

This motel is ideally located for beaches, cafes and the country club within walking distance. The rooms are clean and modern with kitchenettes. The wifi works (mostly) and is free. Parking is free and undercover.

We stayed just one night at this friendly, professionally operated motel, and endorse all the positive comments made by reviewers on this site. Our meal in the restaurant was delicious and close to perfect in every way. The menu is small but caters to all tastes, with those small touches that make each dish something different and a bit special.... More

This place was a great find. There's not a lot of options in South West Rocks, and Rockpool was very very clean. I was super impressed. And the couple who manage the place are so friendly and really welcoming.

Now this place really is a hidden little gem. Yes, you have to get off the Pacific Highway and find your way to South West Rocks but it is worth the effort.

A little gem on the coast . Always well presented, clean and tidy. Easy walk to the main centre, great walk out to the old goal. Excellent restaurant on site. Free WiFi. Would imagine if you have family the pool outside would be a huge asset . Always look forward to the next time

I visit The Rockpool annually when we visit South West Rocks with our Kayaking Team. From the first phone call to make the booking I find the personal level of service always consistent and always welcoming. The rooms are clean and well appointed with a very comfortable bed. The small kitchen facilities are ideal for snacks. The Restaurant attached to... More
