I loved the old school welcome, the wildlife in close proximity, the very helpful staff and the convenience of being close to the new freeway allowing easy access without the noise. Will definitely stay again and again hopefully.

thanks for taking the time to give us a review...its appreciated. Word is spreading that with the NEW HWAY now open we are a quiet retreat motel with the Bonus of saving travelers a 30 klms detour on the old Hway through Grafton.... Its just one of the reasons we were voted as the top transit motel in NSW 2020

5 out of 5
