Very clean comfortable and quiet. Just perfect. No highway noise at all. Privacy and discretion, a given. June is a very friendly welcoming lady. We are repeat visitors, and always stay here whenever possible.

Period motel with many original fittings, well maintained clean and comfortable. A modern twist with freewifi and great coffee. June was a lovely friendly hostess, offering advice of local sites and the area. Her sausage and egg breakfast was perfect for our start to the day. Can recommend a walk along the board walk. Would recommend a stay and hope...

The hospitality is awesome. So easy to get to and close to town for dinner or a walk along the river. The rooms are very neat and tidy, had a great nights sleep after a day of adventure. June the owner is an awesome host.

This motel is right between the highway and the railway so it is extremely noisy at nights. The rooms at the back are better but you will still be lucky to et a full night's sleep. The room was old but adequate. Unfortunately the TV did not receive HD and the remote was lousy. You also need to drive into...

I'm so glad that we are now 4kms away from the noise of the highway as perhaps that would have helped you to have a more positive experience with us. Now that the highway has been closed it is only 100 metres pleasant stroll to our closest restaurant . I am sorry about your problems with the remote control. I...

Absolutely loved my holiday at the Kalang River Motel. June and Alex were excellent hosts and helped make my trip from the UK to Urunga such a memorable one. If I am lucky enough to return to Australia in the future, then the Kalang is where I'll stay.

This is a very small, very basic family run motel. Greeted by June who allowed us to put a mattress on the floor of a queen room for our child which reduced the cost. It would have cost us $105 otherwise and given that this motel is next to the train tracks it would not have been worth it. Very,...

Thanks for taking the time to review our little motel. I do apologise for the pile of palm fronds around the corner at the back laneway . We are waiting for them to be transported to the green waste site. I thought it was far enough out of the way not to inconvenience any one so I have learned something...

Great little motel. Very clean and tidy. We had a nice overnight stay here. Walking distance to the Main Street for tea. The owner is a lovely lady who makes awesome coffee. Very sweet little motel that from the outside looks older but the inside has been done up lovely.

Such a clean, comfortable motel. The pillows were great and the bed had a comfy overlay. You could tell attention to detail was taken to make the room comfortable and homely. There is a heated, magnesium pool which was so relaxing after a long drive. The staff made me feel welcome and would go beyond to help me. I will...
