We have stayed several times in the past while we moved from Sydney to the Gold Coast. The owners are amazingly friendly and helpful, we would have no problems in returning to stay here. Close to shops, cafes and I Scream (great retro cafe) and a nice shopping center.

Great place to stay in the Centre of Grafton CBD. Rooms and beds are very comfortable. Nothing is too much trouble for the Management and staff, they make you feel welcome and valued. Stay here if visiting Grafton.

We booked this hotel on-line for a stop over on our way home from Sydney. Although it is old, it is clean and comfortable. Hot shower and very good value for money breakfast. Quiet area and walking distance to shops. We would stay here again.

“Our room was towards the back but I think all rooms would be ok due to the shape of the building with respect to the quiet road out front.”
