A lovely location and friendly welcome, rooms are nice and clean, very comfortable with thoughtful touches. Stayed twice and enjoyed both visits. I was travelling without my husband and this place was perfect.5 / 5 stars
We picked this place at random to break our long drive. It was a great room, quite a good size with a small outdoor seating area. amenities were great, everything was there from coffee plunger and ground coffee to really soft towels. Wifi was really slow, but free. Owner was very friendly and helpful.5 / 5 stars
Friendly and welcoming with beautiful river views. Great affordable rate and lovely big stylish comfortable rooms (the bed was amazing! ) Great experience here.

We found this motel to be quiet and peaceful within easy walking distance to the hotel, wharf and cafes. The room was very clean with plenty of space and a view to the water. The manager was friendly and helpful, suggesting things to see and do in the area and places to eat. We would throughly recommend this motel and will stay there next time we are in the Nowra area.5 / 5 stars
