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

The small kitchen facilities are ideal for snacks. The Restaurant attached to... More

We spent one night here on our way south. A little out of the way, behind the town centre. The room was modern and up to date, with everything you expect. We didn't make use of the restaurant, instead walking across to thecountry club. Had a great nights sleep, no traffic noise. Would definitely stay again

The staff are friendly, within walking distance to beach, wildlife park, shopping centre, and clubs. Everything was clean and tidy, a good little kitchen was available for snacks and excellent bathroom facilities.

We stayed one night on our way north. The motel is in a quiet location but within walking distance of the shops. The room was quite pleasant as were the staff, and the bed very comfortable. A nice place to stay.

We can't fault this little oasis just a comfortable walk from the centre of South West Rocks. Great hosts, spotless rooms in quiet surroundings. You can't go wrong here! We recommend Rock Pool without reservation.

Immaculately clean, very quite and very welcoming. Stayed there as an overnight stay on the way to our holiday destination. Will put it in the memory banks for the return. Even gave advice to where we could get a good feed. Were more than happy to have us park our camper trailer there too. Fantastic service and were always up... More
