The rooms are spacious and pleasant. You could tell that efforts had been invested in making the place a fine place, but that recent years had witnessed some neglect. For a one night stop it's great. The motel is located just on the river bank, so it offers some relaxing atmosphere on the grassy riverside.

We stayed at this motel just 1 night. We pulled it late afternoon. Staff were nice and helpful. We ate in the restaurant where the food was just lovely. Woke to being able to walk along the banks of the river. While room was out dated I'd would return for a over night stay again.

Stayed overnight with my husband. Room okay, very dated. Housekeeping staff and maintenance man very helpful but beware of the manager, she is rude, maybe time for a holiday. Would not recommend maybe if town booked out.

We were given a four person room for a family of five so one child had to sleep on the floor with a spare blanket. We were also charged $20 for a missing hand towel despite calling to explain we didn't take it and proving that we didn't take two bath towels that we were also initially charged for taking.

We stayed for 2 nights. The rooms were somewhat clean. The bed didn't do my back any favours and the sheets were too small. They are very tired looking,need some new paint. It's lovely close to the river but sand flies or Midgees loved me take some tropical strength aero guard. We had a fish from the jetty near the...

This motel is very old and tired, it needs a total refurbishment. The room was clean but tired. There was a piece of fly screen bunched up and placed in the gap in the bathroom window. There was no hot water when we had showers on the Saturday night and none Sunday morning. Would not stay or recommend this motel.

After reading many reviews about this motel, I have come to understand that there are many people in this world that would expect 5 star accommodation at a 3 star motel. In our experience of travelling we found the Nambucca Motel to be 3 and a half stars. The check in was smooth and easy and once entering our room,...

The room was large and clean. There was only 2 milk shots in the room, not enough for more than 1 tea each. The queen size bed had a single bed blanket on it. When we went to the restaurant for tea, we asked what size the steak was and what vegetables where on offer. This question was answered. The...

We stayed at this motel for one night and were charged an extra $15 on our cedit card for taking one of their grotty dirty pillow. We used our own pillows.

Stayed here for one night and not going back. First room pulled back the bed covers and moved a pillow to find a dead mouse looking cosy. It was late and we had paid so moved to another room. Apology from the receptionist who was friendly albeit untrained in hospitality. Chinese food in restaurant was tasty but ran out of...
