A great place to stay in Macksville, up to date and beautifully maintained, with fantastic bathroom and well away from the highway and traffic noise with cute little balcony in the courtyard. All rooms have split system air conditioning. Helpful, friendly hosts, would always stay here if stopping off on northbound travel or if needing to be in the area.

Room Tip: We stayed upstairs in No 10.

We stayed here on a quiet Saturday night. The room was large and comfortable with a beautiful bathroom, a nice sofa for watching TV, top class inclusions and a great breakfast served in the Breakfast Room. Friendly and helpfull staff topped off a great stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 20 which is upstairs.

This motel that offers very clean and tidy rooms with good quality furnishings and real value for money. A good convenient location. The owner is professional, friendly and seems dedicated to ensuring you have a pleasant stay. Would highly recommend this motel to anyone who needs a stopover (or longer stay for that matter) between Sydney/Newcastle and Brisbane/Gold Coast.
