Clean typical motel room in country town of South Grafton, NSW. Good for our one night stay. May need a bigger room if you wish to stay longer. Comfortable bed, no sofa. Bathroom desperately need exhaust fan !

This is a motel from the 70s that has been well maintained, updated where necessary and has new owners with big smiles where nothing is too much to ask. Most importantly the beds are comfortable, firm and in excellent condition.

Stayed 3 nights June 21. Comfortable clean room. Checkin and staff very friendly. Laundry available for customers much appreciated. Comfortable bed. Microwave and fridge in room. Toaster would have been good. Noise from next rooms can be heard but overall a good stay.

We stopped over for a night on the way to Tweed Heads as a family and this motel is conveniently situated on the main road but is very quiet. Room was decent in size and modestly clean. Kids loved the pool and pool towels are provided. Toilet had a small problem but there were ones outside just in case they weren’t fixed in time. Close to city centre and we’ll priced.

I purchased a Twin Room online upon entering Grafton to help my aging mother 83 1 Queen Bed and 1 Twin Bed and was rudley treated when I mentioned my mother and two sons 6 & 8 were staying. Man couldn't speak English clearly and was abrupt without being clear... I travel internationally and interstate monthly and would not recommend. The highway motel Just across the road was extremely pleasant.

What an excellent stay. We booked in for an overnight stop on our way from Port Macquarie to Brisbane. The guy in reception was very cheerful and friendly, even checking our room as we arrived to make sure that all was well dinner in the restaurant couldn’t be faulted and there is a bar on site as well. The whole complex is spotlessly clean, possible the cleanest I’ve ever stayed in. If we need a motel in Grafton again, we won’t even bother looking, we will go straight back here.

Travelling solo on a 3 day motorcycle trip I look for easy room access, meal availability and of course the local bottle shop. Access to rooms ....check; no problems. Room size was more than adequate; clean and comfortable. Even though the Espana is on the main highway road noise was not intrusive. The motel did not have meals and it is obviously not a hotel (no rum and coke). No problem with dinner and a drink with both takeaways and bottle shops within a 5 minute drive. Not having breakfast was not so good. I simply chose that, once I was packed and on the way to continue through to Casino, even though there are alternatives available within a short driving distance. The Espana was good value for money. But I would be factoring meal availability into the equation when next considering, seeing there is no meals within a reasonable walking distance.

Stayed here 4 nights for work. Room was very basic and needs updating. Water pressure in shower was terrible, bathroom outdated with shower curtain and old brown tiles, motel is situated next to a busy 24 hour service station with highway noise, restaurant had very limited menu and food quality was average. Breakfast is room service only and must be pre-ordered the night before. Staff were very helpful and pleasant.

Very Sorry for your experience. We understand it. When your manager booked a room for you, it was advised that the motel is almost full as we have a tour group staying 4 nights. That is only room left for you to stay 4 nights. Also the room is one we have not done refurbishment. We are appreciated very much for your company always choosing our motel.
