Great little motel
Great little motel, perfect for a stopover or short break. Very, very clean and lovely decor. Great location, a few doors down from the local RSL, which is really nice and serves great food, and there’s also a takeaway and supermarket across the road. Short stroll to the river. Karuah is a lovely place to stop, and is only a few minutes drive from the Pacific Highway. We will definitely stay here again.
