    « Basic, but clean and good value »

    We had an overnight stop, and the room had everything we needed to be comfortable, given that we weren't spending much time in the room. Staff at reception were very welcoming. Parking outside the door, room was very clean, although carpets looking a bit dated, We had a great night's sleep, with no road noise, despite the motel being on what could have been a noisy intersection. Layout of the room was great, with more than adequate power points, mirrors, etc. A very good continental was included, which we very much appreciated. There was an attached Chinese restaurant which seemed to be well patronised, but we didn't try it.

    « Friendly, convenient and good value »

    Our request for getting into our room one hour or so earlier was no problem when I rang beforehand. The young man at the reception was cheerful and friendly. We could park straight in front of our room - no stairs!. We had a sunny, large room with a little table and two chairs and everything was very clean, modern and had everything you need such as an iron and ironing board as well as mini fridge and coffee and tea facilities. I loved the big bathroom and the 'industrial ' strength hairdryer. The bed was comfy and despite situated very conveniently right on the corner of a major Hwy between Nowra and Berry, it was very quiet. It took us only 5 minutes from there into Nowra. They offer breakfast in their restaurant and I believe they have a heated pool, we didn't have time to use. There was also a safe play area for young children away from the general parking area.

    The rooms are spacious and comfortable but are getting on in age. Carpets are stained. The bathrooms are dated. The WIFI is ok and fast enough. There is no breakfast at the restaurant. There is a McDonald across the street. Dinner at the Chinese restaurant attached to the motel was poor. They had no ice for drinks. Ordered satay chicken and special fried rice which was dished up within less than 5 minutes. Wonder when it was made. Give this one a miss.

    « Terrible and I didn't even get to stay. »

    We booked then had to cancel. They said they would but charged me anyway. Even due to circumstances where I had someone die that I had to attend to. We asked for a receipt and they can't to and told us to ask their HQ. This all pretty disgusting behaviour - two face, unsupported, tell me one thing and did something else. As I work for Telstra, I'll pursue scrapping them as a preferred supplier.

    « A nice stay »

    We stayed for 1 night and we were very comfortable. It's a basic motel but that was all we needed. What was great was the family room which was a queen bed in 1 room and then in the main living area was 2 single beds. It's at a busy intersection but noise didn't bother us. Heating unit was effective and quiet, and the small kitchenette was all we needed for our 1 night stay. Shower was good but could have done without someone else's shaver heads in the shower. Motel overall was clean (including carpets) although some of the white linen was stained. It was good value for money and a comfortable stay.

    « Not the best Best Western we have stayed in. »

    Based on the cost for 2 nights' accommodation for 3 adults, our expectations were not met. An added bonus was a surcharge for using a credit card for payment. On presentation the property looked a little run-down with broken light fittings and weeds in the garden beds. Our room had all windows open when we arrived, once closed the room smelt musty, there were patches in the walls that were not painted. Some power fitting were broken and the front door rattled in the wind. We found the hairdryer in the wardrobe furtherest from the bathroom. Bed was comfortable and air-con worked fine. TV was cheap and small. Free wifi was OK once we asked for the password. Our room was not very well cleaned during our stay with the bed being ?pulled up? and bins not emptied. We must have stayed on a off day compared to other reviews. Not the best Best Western we have stayed in with better quality and value available elsewhere in the area.

    « Lovely Staff »

    The room was very clean and everything was really well set out. we would recommend this motel to anyone. There is a restaurant on site that was just lovely then staff were friendly and the food was lovely.

    « Very comfortable »

    Everything about my room was nice, clean and comfortable. Parking is convenient right outside my room. I felt safe and secure in this location. Staff were very friendly and helpful when I had any questions or special requests. They kindly placed me in the room I selected, which is very pleasant.

    « Comfortable & friendly »

    So happy to have stayed here after a horrible night elsewhere the night before. Nice hot showers, comfortable bed and plenty of space for your bags. Nice little table for eating at. Flat screen tv, and free wifi. Dinner and breakfast delivered to the door.

    « Very clean, comfortable and accessible! »

    Location: Easy to find and accessible, nearby McDonalds, KFC, supermarkets and only 10min drive from Berry where there are affordable restaurants and an IGA! There is also a Chinese restaurant on the property, didn't try the food but it looked popular! Price: Reasonably priced for what is expected Cleanliness: Very clean, everything worked, everything comfortable, nothing to complain about! Service: Staff was very helpful, asked us if everything was ok and did what they could to accomodate us - even late us late check out because my girlfriend was feeling sick on the morning of check out.

    « Over night stay »

    Basic living, clean and comfortable, car park for car, close to town only 5 mins drive to town also a restaurant at front of hotel for easy conveyance. Great night sleep bed was very comfortable and clean. If you are looking for basic and comfortable accommodation I would recommend

    « Very good »

    Clean and comfortable room. TV isn't great. Poor quality footer. WiFi is trash but that's normal for Australian motels Restaurant is sensational. I'll be going back just for that. Receptionist was quick and friendly

    « Clean, comfortable and restaurant on premises »

    Hospitality, clean, no small pieces of soap etc pump dispensers in shower and over sink. Restaurant on property, Tony's Chinese, great meal, attentive staff Natalie and Tony. would return without hesitation. Ideal location for my travel. Leaving early the next day and they had my breakfast ready the night before.

    « Quite night sleep »

    Was a easy a night stay, good staff and okay room. Comfortable bed, although the furniture was plain and very little milk in the fridge to make a coffee. Valued for its price if you don't expect too much extra. Located on the roundabout of highway but was quite at night.

    « Value for money »

    The rooms are clean neat and tidy with comfy beds, the front desk staff are very friendly and helpful. The restaurant had friendly efficient staff with a good meal with the chef tony coming out to ensure that our meals were OK. Excellent service for a small motel.

    « OK overnight stay »

    Typical Best western, fairly old but a few improvements have been made. Only about 100 metres from the highway but the noise wasn't overly intrusive, especially with the old noisy air conditioner going. I thought $150 for a Saturday night was about $20 too much (no breakfast included). However do yourself a favour, eat dinner at the newly opened "Chef Tony Chinese restaurant that is in the hotel grounds. we went on the 2nd night they were opened & the food was absolutely brilliant.

    « A Great Place to Stay helps make a great getaway »

    I have been to Nowra a few times and this was my first stay at this motel and I wish I had come across this Motel previously. I loved the size of the rooms. There cleanliness and such a comfortable bed to sleep in after a long drive from Melbourne. I met one of the managers on arrival who was extremely friendly and helpful as he was rushing about to make sure everything was in order. Another I met later one evening and he asked if all was in order. A very good place to stay in a wonderful part of the world.

    « a good nights sleep »

    A last minute booking and not a problem. The staff were friendly and the rooms very nice. If you were expecting to have your little soaps and shampoos to take home or use, not here. They are on a dispenser for use and thinking about it, it makes good business sense. The room prices was higher than expected, but the standard of the rooms were very good.

    « Good for an overnight »

    The lady in reception was helpful and very pleasant. The room was pleasant but not memorable. There was a fair bit of road noise as the property is quite close to the main road. We did not try the restaurant, and breakfast was not offered. The asking price was $200 for a night which I thought excessive. A much better price was able to be negotiated. An entirely adequate, although not exceptional motel as

    « Disabled access room good »

    Although a step into room (a ramp was available but we didn't need it) the shower was really good. Shower chair provide is better than a fixed to wall seat. Rooms are older in style but well decorated. Wifi free. A/C older in style but functioned well. Temp was 36 degC one day! Helpful staff.

    « Southcoast NSW Holiday »

    This motel is well located on the main road and only a 3 min drive from the centre of town. The rooms are clean, comfortable and reasonably well appointed. It would have been nice if the room had a toaster but other than that I couldn't fault it.

    « Good for an overnight stop »

    I stayed here overnight in October for 1 night on my way through to Canberra. The lady in the office was great, she was very helpful with us finding local cafes and shops. The room is what you'd expect from a Best Western, nothing amazing and modern but it was definitely clean and well maintained. I don't think I could do too much more then a night but that's just me. Overall we were happy with everything and had no problems.

    « Horrible. »

    Worst stay ever. Rudest staff the husband and wife. Pool was out of order the whole time, no power my daughters milk went sour and i stupidly gave her a bottle i was than up all night with a sick 10 month old vomiting and with gastro.. the rooms where hot and it was an over priced stay. I asked for a discount and got laughed at basically. And told i was stupid and my childs milk was my problem. Etc. In the end we got a $20 discount 20 pindly dollars. I will never reccomend this place id rather sleep in a bus shelter adleast id get better service there.

    « Clean, well priced »

    4 night stay. Good customer service, good value for money. Room was clean and tidy; amenities within room included iron, basic toiletries; good functional television. Even had a spa. Would advise for room away from pool to avoid noise from children.

    « Good position, nice rooms. »

    If you are heading up or down the Southern coast of New South Wales this motel is located on the Princes Highway at Bomaderry. Keep an eye open for the signs as you might miss them if you are attentive. The rooms are large and clean, and the beds very comfortable. Wi fi is present and free but weak. The premises is situated close to the town of Nowra (5 mins drive) and has restaurants and other facilities nearby. Price is reasonable. Recommended.

    « Great find »

    Stayed overnight on an unexpected stop over in Nowra ! Found the Balan village motel and was very impressed with the room for the price ! Bed was better than home and room was clean and very quiet! Breakfast was fantastic, next time it won't be by accident ! This would be my pick in Nowra !

    « Friendly management but where's my TV? »

    What appears to be a husband and wife team, both seemed friendly and helpful. However aparently there had been a storm some time back and the TV wasntp picking up anything other than ABC. If i had been advised this on check in I wouldn't have stayed.
