A great place to stay for a relaxing few days. All rooms have a water outlook. Very calming watching the boats going in and out. We had friends staying in the caravan park next door so location was great for us as we are not into camping or cabins.

Room cleanliness needs attention as the issues were most noticeable eg pubic hair around base of toilet; spots of faeces in the toilet which could have been removed with a toilet brush;...

Kids had a great time fishing off the jetty. Great views and convenient location. Relaxing family holiday. Friendly accommodating staff. Would happily recommend this property. Only downside was one bathroom.

First time stayed at Moby Dick this weekend & what a lovely spot it is . The best part is the view over the river . The room we had was clean & tidy worth the money . We will definitely be back to stay here next time we are in Yamba .
