Reviewed 16 August 2014

Spent two nights here in Yamba. Centrally located, short walk to the restaurants and coffee shops, close to the Bowling Club and the beautiful boardwalk that leads out to the rock wall. Bronnie is a delightful hostess with a totally engaging smile. Full of helpful tips about the sights of Yamba. The motel room was light, very clean and fresh. It was a great place to base ourselves for two nights and will definitely stay there again. The carpark is a bit of a tight turn if you have a 4wd so my tip is be aware.

Room Tip: We stayed upstairs overlooking the pool.

This is one of the nicest motels I have ever stayed at. The rooms were bright and clean. The bed was very comfortable and the staff couldn't do enough to make our stay enjoyable. Would recommend highly to all travellers in the area

Room Tip: Upstairs has nicer outlook

What a haven from the Sydney stresses and hassles. We liked it so much we stayed an extra day. The owners gave us so many ideas on places to visit and eat we just felt it was better than home. Try Burrs seafood at the marina for the best fresh prawns ever.

Hi SophieLouis,
Thank you for your review.
Glad that you escaped the city jungle for our paradise in Yamba.
We moved here some 8 years ago for that very reason.
Hope to see you again,

We stayed here 1 night whilst in yamba for over night stay. We found the rooms very comfortable and clean. The owners were a lovely couple who were helpful and very friendly, and we have booked there again for a 4 night stay in October this year where we are meeting up with old friends for a reunion. I would recommend this lovely little motel to my friends and family.

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.

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
