Easily one of the best country motels in NSW. Over the last two years I have stayed there for a project management job. The staff and management have made me every guest that I have met there feel like they are staying at a mates place or a family home. Highly recommended to anyone traveling in the region

With the temperature in the high 30s, we booked this motel as it advertised air-conditioned rooms and a pool. We did not find out that the pool was for the manager's exclusive use, and not for motel guests until after we arrived and unpacked. Both their internet site and also Booking.com.au advised that there was a pool and even had...

Although no meals are available this suited us perfectly as we were here to visit family in several locations.Eating is a no-brainer as the choices are endless all around the area for breakfast/brunch/dinner etc. No pets also meant a very quite and relaxing 7 days spent. We were in a top floor unit and had reasonable and ready access. The...

Management are friendly and make you welcome. Room was clean and Tidy. TV Instructions, which for some reason is lacking in a lot of motels. Its a little bit out of town, so you need to take your car if you want to go into town or get something to eat. The shower Hot water is a bit of a...

Coming from Brisbane via Waterfall Way, always a great place to stay as well as very affordable and comfortable. Great proximity to the beach and town centre of Murwillumbah as well as Art Gallery and nearby Mount Warning. Accessible to town also by bicycle, however I do think better bicycle paths are required to avoid busy outside road. Beds are...

We stayed overnight mid-week and had no issues with road noise. The room was clean and tidy and recently (last couple of years) renovated. The owner was very friendly and very helpful. Being across the road from a cane field is a potential downside as you can get a little ash if they are burning off - but we saw...

We had booked this motel for three nights because it was the closest to the Tweed River Gallery. We did not realise that it would be as noisy as it was, even though it is situated right on the Tweed valley Way. Our room was also dark and felt damp. When we advised the owner of our misgivings he said...

We stayed just one night and had a room with a king size bed and another room for our adult children. On driving in our first impression was that it was a bit of an older motel, which it is. But when booking in the owners couldn't have been more accommodating and also showed us to our room and made...

Stayed for only the night and found this motel had everything you want plus more. Fridge supplied soft drinks and chocolates which I have only seen at large city motel/hotels. The large queen bed was clean and very comfortable the best I had slept in the past three weeks. Hosts are very nice and communicate very well. At $100 I...

We stayed here just after Christmas 2015 and had a great relaxed stay. We arrived a little early for checkin but received a warm and friendly welcome and were given our room straight away to shower and change. Very much appreciated after an overnight flight from Singapore. The hotel is a little way out of Murwiilumbah itself but an easy...
