I stayed at the Twin Pines in August on a road trip from Sydney to Brisbane. Arriving in Yamba late in the afternoon, I tried to use my phone and Google+Trip Advisor to find my best accommodation option. I might try harder next time.
The Twin Pines is a standard enough motel. I thought it clean and tidy. My room had direct access to the pool - in summer that would have been nice (though possibly *too* close?), but not much of an issue in August. Do make sure the poolside door is locked when you leave the room.
The welcome at Reception was helpful and kind. I didn't have much time to see the town before sundown, but got a useful run-down of where to walk to see the sights. It is a little walk around to the beaches, and a big climb up to the clifftop, but nothing unpleasant. Likewise, it's a short walk into the main shopping and eating area.
Yamba in August closes early! I wasn't hungry at 6.30pm, but by 9pm everything (and I do mean everything) was closed. In this quiet town at the end of a peninsula I therefore expected a quiet night, but somehow there was a huge amount of road noise that did disturb my sleep a little. I never really fathomed why this was - the motel may be on the main road in to Yamba, but there wasn't a whole lot going on!
