Great quiet location off the Highway. It was a good stop between south coast NSW and the gold coast. The owner had some great stories to tell and was happy to meet us late in the evening. Will stay again if heading north!

Karuah is a nice quiet town ensuring a good night's sleep and although we didn't try it there is a 24 hour food place just down the road. We wouldn't hesitate to return to Karuah and... More

We were warmly welcomed by the owner Trevor. Our room was spacious, lovingly decorated and spotlessly clean with lots of thoughtful extras to make our stay very pleasant and comfortable. All this at a very reasonable rate.

And all that stuff... More

Everything from the October 2009 review is still here, right down to the $85 price and bucket / squeegee next to the car. Loved it, recommended to anyone passing through wanting a quiet night.
