This motel, although a short distance from the main township, offers clean, modern and spacious rooms, breakfast if required, and - mostly - friendly and helpful owners. A great place to stay on the way further north!

It's an older motel that has been renovated. The bathrooms are extremely well appointed with new fittings. All new queen size beds with pillow tops. The owners are very hands on & very friendly & helpful. Their tariffs are quite competitive & I will say excellent value for money.

Very welcoming and helpful hosts; very clean, spacious and well appointed room with comfortable bed; generous breakfast servings; lovely view of the Clarence River; quiet for a restful nights sleep. If all units were in use, parking could be a difficulty.

While right on the old highway the room was quiet & very comfortable. The lady on reception was very friendly and made us feel welcome. Location is good being close to the new highway and a great cafe "the Ferry Park Cafe" Parking is a bit tight but nor really an issue
