A hidden gem, set back a block from the highway, avoiding the noisy night traffic. The rooms are spacious, clean and well appointed. It was good to find a place to rest after a long days work. Only negative is that breakfast is in a communal dining room, not via room service, when on business and time is the essence this can slow down your morning. Will be back though, when next doing a North Coast run.

Thank you very much for your review familyof5hols. I'm sorry that you felt coming to the breakfast room would slow you down. We are flexible with our opening times, I apologise if we didn't make you aware of our policy. We look forward to seeing you next time you are traveling this part of the world.

Clean, comfortable, welcoming, quiet. Everything you want for a good nights stay is here at the Mandarin. Driving between Brisbane and Sydney (and back) it is the place of choice. I could not recommend the Mandarin to highly.

Great stop half way between Sydney and Brisbane in a very quiet street. This motel was VERY clean. We stayed in the 2 bedroom family suite and it was spacious and beds were very comfortable. Would stay again no worries.

We stayed overnight in 2 rooms on our way down to the Hunter Valley. Location is excellent and within easy walking distance to shops and restaurants. Easy to find. No road noise. Airconditioned. Nice sized rooms and very comfy beds. Had free wifi but unfortunately it was very intermittent and the door to the room had to be opened at times for the signal to work. But all in all, a nice comfortable stay.

Room Tip: If you want wifi, might be a good idea to ask for a room where the signal is stronger.

The Mandarin Motel is my first preference when travelling on the Mid-North Coast. Over the past few years I have stayed there several times, both with family and by myself. Their rooms are spacious and quiet, the service is excellent, and because the motel is located off the highway, the noise of trucks rumbling by during the night does not cause a problem. I highly recommend the Mandarin Motel.

Room Tip: All the rooms are spacious with a large bathroom. If one has a problem using stairs it would be adv...

We stayed overnight during the Xmas holidays, to break up the trip between Sydney and Byron. The motel is easy to find, one street back from the main road. Its very quiet, so no road noise.

The room was enormous, with a massive bathroom. The bed was comfy. There is a couple of pubs and an ex servos club in walking distance. We had a few beers and dinner at the Star Hotel on the river (next to the bridge). An excellent pub.

The motel is modern and well maintained. It was perfect for a overnight stop.

We stayed as a family and only have great things to say about our room, it was spacious, clean, had air-con, flat screen tv, spotless bathroom and the staff were very accommodating. We were told where to go for family-friendly activities and food. Will be staying again and recommending to family and friends.
