We stayed in a Premium King room for 3 nights in June 2021. Absolutely blown away by the room quality, facilities (kitchen, modern bathroom, outdoor spa etc), view of the river, location and reasonable cost. Unfortunately on our second day, we had bed bugs bites - and that night found 4 live bed bugs which we took photos/videos of. Reception were informed and we hope the issue will be dealt with as it looks like it's an isolated issue based on other peoples' reviews.

Great views from upstairs, beautifully renovated & huge rooms, full kitchen facilities, impeccably maintained. A pleasant 15-20 minute walk to the main shopping strip. Our only criticism is that the (queen size) bed was too soft for our liking.

My partner and had a wedding to attend in Byron Bay and decided after the wedding to head south out of the chaos of Byron. We decided on Yamba and booked in at the Moby Dick Waterfront Resort Motel after seeing some of the photos on Google and their website. A absolutely delightful stay it was. The location of the Moby Dick was perfect along the waterfront 5mins out of the main center of Yamba. We were able to go for a big 5-6km walk all around Yamba along the footpaths that follow the water. All the perks of town are a 5 min drive and if you needed to go shopping the Yamba Fair and Yamba Shores Tavern were 10mins away. We had fully self-contained room that was very spacious, pristine and modern. The room looked out over the big back yard area which backs straight onto the water. You can see the water and marina from your bed which is a delight when having a read. In the morning sitting with a coffee on the east facing balcony, enjoying the warmth from the sun in the morning, was a delight in winter. The back yard area is fantastic, it has sun lounges, tables, under cover areas and bbq facilities. We walked down the Clarence River Fishermen's Co-Op, a 2 min walk from Moby Dick and got ourselves fresh prawns and had them by the water. Another afternoon we perched up at the bar area with a cheese plater, some wine and just sat watching the pelicans gather on the jetty and boats. All staff were friendly and helpful, looking forward to getting back.

First visit to Yamba, very happy we chose this Resort as our base, .Room recently modernised, very clean very comfortable! Comfortable king size bed, good shower very happy. Our room on first floor and no lavatory, guess that would be only negative, otherwise very relaxing, would definitely stay here again
