“Good value and friendly hosts”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

3 of us stayed here. A spur of the moment decision ... we just needed somewhere to stay.
The Civic is unpretentious, is clean, tidy and neat. The bathrooms had recently been renovated. We all enjoyed a good nights sleep in comfortable beds - which was all we really wanted.
The host (Shirley) was lovely to deal with and helpful.
The Civic is obviously not the best place in town, but is a long way from the worst and is good value for money.
If I am looking for accommodation in Grafton again, sometime soon, the Civic will be top of the list.

Room Tip: All the rooms are upstairs and there is no lift (from what we could see)

Stayed here during school holidays. Very quiet location but the rooms are not soundproof so there can be some noise from the neighbours. Rooms have been renovated so bathroom is modern. Beds were comfy and the room was spotlessly clean. And I mean clean! Even the exhaust fan grille was dust free! The owners are obviously fastidious. Just be aware that checkout is 9:30 am not 10:00 am like most motels.

You should realise this however as there are helpful notes and requests everywhere. The air conditioner is an older style unit that can be noisy and not terribly effective. The room would benefit from a split system air conditioner.

Would stay here again as it was good value and so clean. Off highway location is quiet too.

Reviewed July 26, 2009

We stayed at the Civic Motel twice in June and July while travelling from Sydney to Airlie Beach and on the return journey.

The Civic is a small 9 bedroom Motel, all rooms are on the first floor with undercover car park beneath at ground level. The rooms are of an average size with tea/coffee/fridge facilities, air con and cable tv. Very clean with great showers, friendly proprietors, husband and wife team I think. Small swimming pool. Good location for Grafton and within walking distance to town, so quiet at night for sleeping. In town we ate at the Clocktower Hotel (see that review).

Like most small towns everthing seems to close early, not much to do or see in Grafton so only good for a pit stop to recharge.

Would recommend the Civic if you're in Grafton and need to get your head down for the night.
