Reviewed 13 June 2014

We stayed one night on drive north to Brisbane. Room basic motel style but clean and cosy with a patio that opened onto a sparkling pool. Had all we needed. Pretty curtains and bedding looked new.
Diagonally opposite bowling club that served tasty bistro style meals, so we walked to dinner which was a bonus.
Comfy beds, no noise, ensured a peaceful nights sleep. Free WiFi and friendly service. We will stay again. Great value.

Stayed: June 2014, travelled as a couple

Hi Travellingtrudi,
Thank you for your review.
Our Motel is currently undergoing refurbishment with the exterior painting and signage just recently been completed.
Rooms are underway with new beds, change of linen decore colours etc.
Parking is available for all rooms but occasionally some guests bring in an extra vehicle which is inconvenient to others, sorry for this.
Never had our rooms described as 'small and dark' though.
Kind regards
Graham and Bronnie

we spent 3 days travelling to Sydney - a nice slow ramble down - our first night was in Yamba at the Yamba Sun Motel - a great Motel - beautifully clean - really nice outlook - onto the pool area - fabulously situated for a walk around - near places to eat - all in all JUST great - and just by the by - was the cheapest accommodation and best accommodation on our way down - thank you to the hosts too!

I frequently visit Yamba to catch up with friends who travel down from Brisbane and this time I thought I would try the Yamba Sun and am glad I did.
The value for money was good as is the motel which has been recently painted inside and out and has good sized rooms, TV and beds.
The motel's location is close to the local bowling club, shops, parks, marina and beaches and other conveniences. It is located near the road into town but the traffic noise is hardly noticeable as Yamba is a destination and not a through town. The motel also has a well kept and maintained pool and gardens and more than adequate parking plus the entire place inside and out is kept spotless. The staff and management are very friendly and helpful in every way and make you feel very welcome and are always giving advice for where and what to see.
Not many staff go out of their way to do that now as I have noticed previously. I will certainly stay there again my next trip to Yamba.

Dear James,

Thank you for your review. Yes Graham and I are very happy to be back running the Motel.
The deluxe rooms have undercover parking which is great, but if they are booked next time you
come you are welcome to put your bike in our garage.

We stayed here for 2 nights, we weren't looking for anything fancy.. but what they lacked in mod com's, they made up for in cleanliness & tidiness, the staff are lovely & helpful and the free bacon & eggs brekky that came from our wot if booking was an added bonus. There situated across from the bowls club & are close to all shops, I would highly recommend this motel.

Hi Ann
Thank you for your kind comments, we do pride ourselves on high housekeeping standards and we have conveyed your comments on to our staff.
Just out of curiosity, what are the mod cons you referred to that we are lacking?
Maybe you could drop us an email if you have the time: stay@yambasunmotel.com.au

Many thanks
