This motel is right between the highway and the railway so it is extremely noisy at nights. The rooms at the back are better but you will still be lucky to et a full night's sleep. The room was old but adequate. Unfortunately the TV did not receive HD and the remote was lousy. You also need to drive into... More

Absolutely loved my holiday at the Kalang River Motel. June and Alex were excellent hosts and helped make my trip from the UK to Urunga such a memorable one. If I am lucky enough to return to Australia in the future, then the Kalang is where I'll stay.

This is a very small, very basic family run motel. Greeted by June who allowed us to put a mattress on the floor of a queen room for our child which reduced the cost. It would have cost us $105 otherwise and given that this motel is next to the train tracks it would not have been worth it. Very,... More

Thanks for taking the time to review our little motel. I do apologise for the pile of palm fronds around the corner at the back laneway . We are waiting for them to be transported to the green waste site. I thought it was far enough out of the way not to inconvenience any one so I have learned something... More

Great little motel. Very clean and tidy. We had a nice overnight stay here. Walking distance to the Main Street for tea. The owner is a lovely lady who makes awesome coffee. Very sweet little motel that from the outside looks older but the inside has been done up lovely.

Such a clean, comfortable motel. The pillows were great and the bed had a comfy overlay. You could tell attention to detail was taken to make the room comfortable and homely. There is a heated, magnesium pool which was so relaxing after a long drive. The staff made me feel welcome and would go beyond to help me. I will... More

Clean room, very nice Couple managing the place. Great Coffee in the morning. Unfortunately noisy location. Trains run behind the Motel during the night and the traffic noise from the highway disturbed us at night. Ear plugs would have been a good thing to have.

Thank you for the positive comments about our little business. Like you we can't wait for the highway noise to go away when the new highway is completed so we are in the process of preparing a new space away from the noise. Hopefully it will be ready by the time you pass this way again. More

June and Adriaan run a really great ship. Their rooms are spot on, the service is great, we love going there. Stayed this time with both of our adult children and we found how great the access is the the sensational Anchors Wharf Seafood Restaurant. Just topped off the weekend. Thanks again J & A.

Stayed here for a week whilst at a workshop. A delightful spot with the most amazing magnesium pool for relieving aches and pains. Spotlessly clean, this older style hotel comes with wonderful old fashioned country hospitality. June looked after us so well with great breakfasts each morning and great suggestions for places to eat. Will be back for sure.

Perfect spot to stay the night within close range to Coffs Harbour but without the expensive holiday price. Very welcoming owner of the motel who also can make a delicious coffee to kick start your day. We nearly drove past after catching a glimpse of the motel from the outside but the rooms are actually quite homely and the area... More
