“Lovely stay”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

We booked several rooms and stayed 2 nights. The rooms are very nice, light and bright. Appeared to be recently redecorated with attractive bedding, new TV, modern containers in the bathroom for soap etc. The service was very friendly and helpful. On a busy road but we found it wasn't very noisy, as it is set back a bit with off -street parking in the front. Half the units are on the ground floor and the other half are up two small flights of stairs. Would definitely stay here again when in Murwillumbah.

Murwillumbah was just a stop off on our travels south and this motel was a very convenient place to stop off for a couple of days. The road is fairly busy, being the old pacific highway but this didn't distract us much to be honest. The rooms were appointed as you'd expect with all the normal conveniences. Outside the rooms there was also a general use microwave oven. Washing facilities also available. The owners are a lovely couple and we enjoyed their conversation. We felt a bit sorry for them as some of the other guests that were there at the time were a bit rough and loud (by 'a bit' I mean 'a lot'!) Not the motels fault of course and I don't mean to suggest that they naturally attract a low class of guest (the price of the motel wasn't particularly low!) Thanks for the stay, we would consider dropping by again.

We had a party in Murwillumbah not too far from the Poinciana Motel so we booked 6 rooms for the guests that had travelled to M'bah. The rooms were recently painted and were good value for money. Air-con was working which was essential on a 40 degree day. The rooms were surprising quiet given the motel is on Tweed Valley Way. I would recommend this motel for a stay in M'bah.

The people who run this motel are great and could not be more helpful. The room we had was well presented and with a nice rural view over the river, and the bathroom seemingly spotless. Good value given the price and very quiet. The shower area was glassed in ( am over shower curtains and mouldy spaces) and although not really modern was in not dated or tired. Liked the containers of shampoo, body wash and soaps etc. and all amenities worked well. Nice firm bed,The Room we had was quite spacious and a quiet area. Does not have a restaurant as is often the case with some smaller family owned motels, understandable given the work and overheads but would be nice to have a better choice in the town and the ones we found were very disappointing...also is just that bit far to walk to town if going to dinner so of wanting a tipple then a taxi is required which cost us $10 each way. Aircon worked a treat and was quiet! Off road parking and not too many flights of stairs to cart the luggage..
Thanks for a great stay! Some old fashioned service which some larger hotel companies just cannot seem to provide.

This really is an older style basic motel but there have been efforts to freshen it up. The owners do seem to care and have supplied added extras to make the stay even more enjoyable. We appreciated access to a microwave near the stairwell, provision of crockery and cutlery on request and the very efficient WiFi modem in our room - free!! There is some road noise but with the front window closed, it didn't hinder our sleep at all. Comfortable bed with pillows to our liking. Thank you both.

Room Tip: Only a couple of steps from the car park to the first level. Room 1 had 2 queen sized beds.

My husband and I were traveling from Brisbane for a wedding in Uki on the Saturday afternoon with a pick up from the Motel at 1:45pm. Bruce (the owner) could not have been more helpful. The room was ready for an early check in so that we had plenty of time to have a bit of a rest and still be dressed and ready for the shuttle. We were pleasantly surprised with the size of the room with plenty of space for a lounge and small table. Have to say it has been a long time since i have seen a motel room with a separate loo. Everything was spotlessly clean.
Prior to check in we received an email confirming our reservation a couple of days before and the day prior a text (even though the 5am arrival was a tad early) with another prompt and a link with the directions.
All in all even though on this occasion our visit was brief, it was memorable due to our hosts exceptional customer service both before and on arrival and of course on departure. We would not hesitate in staying here again and we are happy to recommend to others.

Quiet, clean, and welcoming. The Poinciana Motel sits about 1km south of the bridge into Murwillumbah on the Tweed Valley Way.

Rooms are clean and tidy and road noise minimal. The two rooms we have stayed in include the standard twin room, with two queen beds and the larger end King Rooms. Both options have a bathroom and separate toilet room (with those wonderful Orange loo lids!) all kept clean neat and tidy.

The beds are comfortable and rooms generous in size.

The property has a pool and offers a good breakfast. There is a washing machine and dryer that guests can use.

Suzie and Bruce (owners) are outwardly helpful, always good for a chat and happy to lend a hand with directions or advice on where to eat etc.

We enjoyed our stay and will be back.

Room Tip: Ask for a King room. They are larger and have windows away from the main road so nice and quiet.
