A small family run motel. A touch out of style, but very clean and comfortable. The bed was a bit firm for our liking, the bathroom was well laid out and the shower was excellent - great pressure, hot and lovely.

Very clean and comfortable motel in a convenient location. Although it is situated on the major road the noise was minimal. The room was average size and well appointed with al the usual facilities. Seamless checking in.

Just left this conveniently located motel. It was very clean, good bed, nice linen, with ceiling fan plus air con if needed. Nice outdoor sitting spaces, both private and shared, with pool & BBQ available. Great for stopover or longer stay.

We stayed one night on our way home from Byron Bay. We had a family room for us and our two daughters. Everything was spotlessly clean and the facilities were basic but absolutely fine. Shower was good and beds were comfortable. Despite being on a main road we heard no noise and slept well. Would definitely stay again where we...

The Port O'Call Motel in Port Macquarie was really excellent. For a start, everything in my room worked, which I found unusual. The owner, Reg, could not have been more helpful with advice about what to do and see in Port Macquarie. My room was very well set up with everything I wanted, and I consider it was very good...

The man who checked us in was not really friendly. Not rude either, but you're working in hospitality so friendliness is important. We checked in early and had room nr 1. Its just next to reception. The room was clean, but dated. Bed was firm but good. No views. Bathroom dated but clean and spacious. I loved the shaving cream!...

Comfortable, clean and safe! The room had generous sized beds with a lovely bathroom. The availability of free WiFi was an added bonus! Perfect for a stopover whilst travelling! Only issue was the stair but we had loads of luggage and it was a last minute booking! Overall good accommodation!

We stayed overnight in this motel on our way from the NSW Central Coast to Brisbane. Whilst the rooms were clean and provided all we required for an overnight stay, it is not a motel that I would consider staying in for more than one night. The motel itself has, apparently, recently been renovated; however, it maintains much of its...

Thank you for choosing to stay with us. However, we cannot agree with your comments. Most of our guests love our Motel and tell us how good our rooms are compared to other Motels. They like the patios and find them useful. We have many guests who have extended stays and a large percentage of company reps and other guests...

Stayed 2 nights one week apart. Rooms were small, not very well equipped (eg. 1 plate 1 knife 1 fork no dessertspoon or bowl) and they were in a draw in a plastic bin at floor level right next to door. Carpet stained. Bathroom outdated and you need a neck like a giraffe to brush your teeth over the hand...

Stayed overnight 2 adults/2 children. Well priced, clean, sufficient amenities (microwave, kitchenette with plates, cutlery, toaster, kettle), bathroom liquid soap, shampoo, conditioner, slightly dated but more than comfortable for the night.
