We only stayed one night but everything was clean and fresh. The lovely furnishings made it feel like a hotel. A short walk to the river, ferry wharf and shops, a slightly longer one to the beach. Highly recommended.

Took a short family holiday and found this gem. The motel is clean and the staff are extremely friendly. Great value. Easy walk to the beach or even Tea Gardens. Close to shops and amenities. We will be back.

Clean and friendly. Exceptional value. Very handy to river and bridge. Easy walk to Tea Gardens or surf beach. Have stayed here several times and we'll be back. Great to find such a well run place at a reasonable price.

A country-style motel that is not typical … this one’s been tastefully renovated and the rooms have a small kitchenette, a generous sized fridge (big enough to fit a bottle of Champagne in the freezer section), a flat panel TV (at a height that is just right to watch whilst in bed), a firm but comfortable mattress, and a new...

Comfy beds, great pool, friendly staff, BBQ area with undercover dining by the pool. Rooms are tidy and have everything you need to have a stress free stay. Great for families close to the picturesque river, nice quiet location.

I've stayed here often and it's always clean, the beds are comfortable, it's handy to whatever you want to do and it's quiet. This time there was a problem with some young people making noise until 2am and when the manager was told she took care of it straight away and told the people to leave. Those of us that... More

Jenny the onsite manager was always pleasant and helpful with directions or advice. This is a small town hotel and the service is a little... More

This place was a bit of an eye opener. After several below average hotel/motels in NSW this was a breath of fresh air. Nice staff, large rooms, clean, parking, A/C, and nearby attractions such as a Koala reserve. Overall an excellent stay.
