“Great overnight stay”
Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

Older style motel, but immaculately clean. Dont let the old facade fool you with the rooms all newly renovated.
Very good breakfast too with plenty of variety.
I highly recommend this motel for anyone staying in the area.
The owners were very helpful giving a little more info on the area.

Clean, well-presented with good facilities and friendly owners - it's always a pleasure to stay (which we do, about 5-6 times a year, travelling interstate from Qld). The tariff represents value for money. Handy location to local points of interest and pubs/eateries etc. Short drive to Yamba (19kms) and Brooms Head (30kms), so happy to base ourselves here. Highly recommend - especially since the change of management (to Brian & Barbara) ~ last 2 years has seen steady refurbishment/upgrades and increased facilities.

Every time we come home to visit Mum & Dad which is six or more times a year we stay with Brian & Barb at the Waterview. It's always extremely clean and comfortable. Brian & Barb are terrific hosts who go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. Barb is also an excellent cook so make sure you treat yourself to one of her breakfasts! If you're very lucky her corn fritters might be on the specials board and that's what they are. You can even have breakfast by the pool if you like.
Having grown up in this town I know all of the great places to visit in the area like Brooms Head and Yamba both of which are just a short drive away.
For a night out the Bottom Pub and the main street are all within a short, flat stroll of the motel.
We'll keep coming back and back.

Room Tip: You can see over the levee bank to the mighty Clarence River from the rooms upstairs.

We we're here for New Year's Eve , this proves that older Motels can serve up quality. Nice rooms friendly staff, great pool. biker friendly. Great meals at the pub and a great nights sleep. Clean, tidy and reasonably priced. Keep up the great work.

My wife and I stayed here for one night on a driving holiday to Sydney. After a day's driving it was the perfect spot. The rooms were very clean.............just like the entire complex. Brian & Barb are great people who look after you in a very relaxed way. The local was just a short walking distance from the Waterview Motel and the Clarence River is across the road. We didn't do the brekkie like other guests have raved about so looks like we'll have to make another stopover there and see what all the fuss is about:-) Similar to what Arnie said "We'll be back".

Room Tip: We had a lower level room but the top floor would get a view of the river. No big thing though as yo...

Were pleasantly surprised by the freshly refurbished rooms, cleaneliness and affordable rates. The Town is very pretty too. I found it even nicer than Yamba. The owners are super friendly and accomodating. Highly recomendable.
