Reviewed 6 September 2013

Found this place via WOTIF and got the same rate in person. Clean, tidy room (No. 7) right near the beach. Best shower of our road trip with fantastic water pressure - luxurious! Can also recommend the Pacific Hotel for a feed and bevvie as it's within walking distance to the motel.

My husband and I recently spent two nites at this fantastically located motel - immaculately clean, lovely beachside decor with a quirkiness that you don't find in the bland, soul-less new build motels/apartments......we stayed in Room 1, which had its own huge private balcony which was an absolute suntrap from sunrise to sunset and where we enjoyed many a meal and a cold drink....the lady at reception was extremely welcoming and gave us all sorts of useful advice re nearby restaurants and clubs. And sleeping while listening to the roar of the surf below was incredible. The kitchen was well equipped, the flat screen tv was larger than the usual supplied, and the bed was comfortable ...all in all, a gorgeous and reasonably priced weekend that we hope to repeat soon.

Room Tip: Room 1 has its own top floor balcony with fantastic views of the ocean

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.
