We stayed just one night to break up the trip and it was just great. The manager took a phone booking late in the day and was most helpful when we arrived. The room was clean and tidy, spacious and good value for money. Would happily stay again.

I'd been driving most of the day and pulled off at the Raymond Terrace exit, even though we couldn't find anything in our RACV guide (turns out it's under Port Stephens!). Drove past one place that looked a little dodgy and then came across the Colonial Terrace.
And lucky we did. The staff member we dealt with was exceptionally helpful.
The room (a family room) was spacious, clean, and all that you could hope for in a room. I slept really soundly and had breakfast in the dining room, which was very reasonably priced for a continental breakfast, and I was suitable fortified for the drive to Melbourne ahead.
I recommend very highly.

Thank you for your kind words, we are pleased you had a good nights rest and enjoyed your breakfast . We agree with you unless you spend time doing research it is difficult to find Raymond Terrace in the AAA Travel guides . We hope that in the next issue there will be a separate listing for Raymond Terrace as it is on a major highway between Brisbane and Sydney .
But next time you stay you won't need the travel guide as you now know where we are!

No accommodation available when we called in, but owners went "above and beyond" to help us find rooms further up the coast and we are very grateful for all their help. Thanks again from Scott and Karen :)

A motor inn - is a motor inn .. what makes this place different is the very friendly staff and the wonderful food in the restaurant.

I chose this place because it had a restaurant and I do not have time to walk around outside to find dinner - but it was a great delight to find the food was not only very cheap - but excellent standard.

The rooms are clean and comfortable and are well laid out with digital TV .... there is Foxtel but I did not use it.

I would stay here again and would recommend the Colonial Terrace Motor Inn to anyone.

Great, friendly staff, who would do everything necessary to ensure a good stay. Wonderful comfortable rooms, with great showers. Easy access. Would recommend it as a great stopping place or somewhere for a longer holiday.

I stayed here on business and found it a most enjoyable experience from the moment arrived. The owners are professional and friendly, the motel is very well kept, neat clean and tidy. The restaurant is fantastic and open for breakfast and dinner - both of which I enjoyed. A perfect stopover when travelling for business or pleasure and a credit to the industry.

We stopped over in Raymond Terrace during a trip along the highway. We enjoyed a comfortable stay in this handy location. The owners are friendly and helpful accommodating our late arrival without fuss. We requested one of the 2bedroom options, as we were travelling as a party of three adults. There were plenty of beds for a large family group. The beds are comfortable and the hot water is plentiful. The kitchenette was well supplied, plenty of tea and coffee which was appreciated! The motel is located on the main road, but traffic nose was not an issue. A very handy find!
