A Real Treasure

After staying in several motels from Sydney to Gold Coast, this is by far the best accommodation.

Friendly greeting and farewell. Exceptionally Clean and quiet. Great location. Will definitely stay again.

Well done Team.

Spacious suite

We stopped there for one night. Meiling was very friendly and accommodating. Suite was spacious and very clean. Very close to Nambucca Heads.

Friendly & Obliging Hosts

A nice motel in a quiet and central location, clean and comfortable. A great half way point when travelling between Gold Coast - Sydney - Gold Coast. Macksville is only a few kilometres off the freeway so very convenient. Very gracious & obliging Hosts - nothing is too much trouble. We stayed during the recent flooding and needed to reschedule our trip several times due to road closures and Meiling was most flexible with our requirements. Remember to book direct with the motel for the best rates.

Lovely Motel

Stopped a night here just recently; what a lovely motel and lovely hosts. The room was very big, added bonus a big bathroom and oh so quiet. Great curtains to block out the morning sun; best sleep since we left home a week ago. I look forward to staying here again soon and discovering more of Macksville. Picturesque town with friendly and caring locals.

Very Happy Customer

Loved the cleanliness of our room and most beneficial part for me was there was no chemical smell like in many Motel rooms. The bathroom was very modern and had plenty of lighting. The Customer care factor was excellent, and on our next visit to Macksville we will be sure to book with you again. Thank you.

Clean and Comfortable

A well located motel near the motorway, but walking distance to the river. We enjoyed our spacious and comfortable room, which was spotlessly clean with everything needed for a few days stay.

The hosts are an absolute pleasure to deal with.

Emergency Stopover

Our car broken down late Friday night, Meiling & Jason were friendly and helpful in adding a trundle bed into the room for our family. They also stayed at reception until 11:30pm when we checked in. The beds were very comfortable and the room was clean and tidy.
