Great locaiton for a fisher person”
This Motel is situated on the banks of the Nambucca River within a stones throw of Oyster Banks and a short boat ride to the mouth of the river.
Older style buildings and facilities but more than adequate. Very clean. Very friendly staff. Off the new highway so very handly and restful location for the beautiful Nambucca Valley. Right on the River.
Overnight stay at Nambucca Motel”
It was a very pleasant surprise. This motel was right on the banks of the Nambucca River, very quiet and lovely atmosphere. The staff were very friendly throughput our stay. We dined at the restaurant for dinner and breakfast and enjoyed our meals. It was home cooking and the cutlets were very tasty. The room was very clean and you could not hear any road noise. I would certainly stay there again . It was value for money- I consider it a very good three and a half star motel.
Lovely hotel and service with a smile”
nambucca is nice motel, quiet, clean, large site for car parking and playing on grass. It's about 2km to city center. It's next to a big lake so convinient for fishing, and big swimming pool here meet demand of someone who like swimming. Its restaurant can serve good food and not expensive. The owner and staff here are friendly and nice. This motel suitable for solo traveler stay, family with kids stay, and couple as well.
Great little motel”
The stay began with a little confusion over the payment however that was the only glitch. The room overlooked the Nambucca River which was nice. The rooms were good basic clean rooms. A pleasant place for a pit stop.
We decided to stay at this motel because of the pictures and we liked it ! The location is next to the river and it is placed on huge lawn which is wel maintained. We were received by a very nice lady, who was very supportive since we had a dreadfull drive there... The restaurant is sooo cool... Two chinese ladies are running the business and my wife loves chinese food so she had too good to be true chicken with black bean and rice and I had a marvelous T-bone steak. We slept very well in a good bed, no problems, enough outlets for laptops and the airco was cold ! What do you need more ??
A very good country motel, and excellent value”
As a country motel, I found it excellent. The staff were excellent, and very friendly, as was the owner, Melody Ng. My room had all that I needed, and most importantly, all the rooms are away from any traffic noises. I had a really good nights sleep.
Motel of Last Resort”
It is very rare that I give a bad review as I tend to see the good in most properties. We chose the Nambucca Motel as a convenient and (seasonally) cheap overnight stop between Sydney and Gold Coast - much to our disappointment. The rooms were really run down, but even worse, not clean and very musty. The BBQ area was unusable with broken tables. While not advertised as a dog friendly hotel - dogs were accepted and obviously allowed in the rooms. The only redeeming point was the restaurant which offered decent chinese meals.
This delightful Motel is a little way out of town, but is one of the best we have stayed in. Very comfortable.
Quite a nice place on the river”
Not sure why this motel is only 2 stars, it's nicer than most 3 star motels
Peace and comfort”
We were met by a cheerful receptionist who was very helpful. Although the motel is from another era it was clean and comfortable inside. Our room was blissfully quiet. Overall a very good choice.
It was great having a restaurant at the motel, but it was very pricey for what we got
Dont waste your money.”
This motel ruined my stay, in fact i left, Nambucca Heads. our room had no hot water, but was told to run to taps which made it Luke warm, the kettle didn't work, the bed hard and the restaurant laughable. ASKED FOR A REFUND AND WAS TOLD NO, but we could have another room, so we just left Nambuuca Heads.
simple overnight stay ”
I stayed here for one night as a stopover from Sydney to Brisbane. the facilities were great, had everything we needed. Simple and clean. The whole motel could do with a renovation but being where it is it's perfect for a nights stay.
great location great service”
I booked in here to break my trip from Sydney to Noosa . I got held up abit getting out of Sydney on a Friday afternoon and then torrential rain and didnt arrive till 8.30 pm I quickly checked in and although the kitchen was just about closed the beautiful chinese lady said that i could still order dinner and what a fantastic meal it was . The room was very clean and had everything i wanted .It was far enough off the highway not to notice the road noise
Old, smelly and dirty. The receptionist come cleaner was on another planet. Motel is run down.”
Motel run tired and run down - worst place i have ever stayed in. Nambucca Heads very strange place too!
the hotel was very convenient straight off the highway. great little rooms with everything you need. the manager was also very nice which is always a bonus :)
Great view but that's about all”
Our reception on arrival was cool. The motel is conveniently located and most rooms have views. Our room was the smallest motel room I gave ever stayed in. The room was poorly equipped. There was tea and coffee making facilities as long as you didn't want milk. We asked for some without luck. The motel is ok but I won't be rushing back when there are plenty of other options close by.
Lovely place to stay and relax. Big clean room. Love the back exit , of our room, to just sit in the sun with a cuppa. Was greeted by a lovely lady, baking Bikkie's.
Nice on the outside but...”
This Motel looks great from the outside with it's bright yellow Hacienda style and peaceful surroundings right on the river but the inside was very disappointing. The bedspreads are old and need replacing. The pillows flat, hard and uncomfortable. The hair dryer in the bathroom had mould all over the cord. The room needs new floor coverings and a bit of an update.
