“Beautifully Located”
Reviewed 12 June 2013

Such a lovely place to totally relax. The rooms are very clean, self contained for any length of stay and the views from the decks are absolutely gorgeous. The managers of the Surf Motel are a delightful couple and most helpful. Would highly recommend anyone driving to Yamba to stay there, I know we will go back.

We stayed in a beautiful big family room at Yamba Surf in late January 2013 and cannot speak more highly of the lovely managers and the facilities. Great Value for money and exceptionally clean.
The location was great and the views overlooking Yamba Main Beach are just incredible. The lovely couple that manage the Motel organised free shuttles to take us to the local clubs in the area and also helped us organise other activities.
The Motel is directly opposite the Yamba Main Beach and a lovely big park containing tennis courts and BBQ's (which we used). At night we would sit with our children at a picnic table across from the Motel sipping champagne whilst the children played and looked out at the stunning beach views.
Much more than a Motel, more like an apartment. This place exceeded all of our expectations and we will definately return.

What a great place to stay - stunning views, good sized room, clean, handy kitchenette, reasonable price, helpful staff. Stopped here for a night on the way home from Sydney but will be going back for a holiday soon.

I wanted a clean and modern look room (no dated furniture or old bed spreads) at a reasonable price. Our room in Surf motel was all of this with very friendly staff and just a few steps from the most beautiful view of the surf and beaches in Yamba.
