My wife and I moved to New Zealand 18 years ago. We used to love the Anchor Bay Motel. We managed to get back there after the borders opened post-covid, and it's even better than before! The beds are super-comfy and the managers are so proactive to help out. I also recommend Jim's Wild Oysters 5 minutes away!

The room was beautiful & clean with every think you would need..😊 (I’m a cleaner so I had a good look) The shower water pressure was great & the towels were big & soft..🌸 The room & Ac had no smell. (I hate it when you turn the Ac on & it smells) but all good here..🌹 Also the location is beautiful with a cafe near by & a great little walk by the water..🐠 The ONLY things that let it down was the bed was very uncomfortable & the traffic noise..☹️ It was a wobble bed, so when your partner moved the other would feel it & it wakes you up...😂☹️ We can hear the traffic which was ok as it went quiet about 9pm but then through the night we woke to cars doing burnouts & revving engines..😡

I was last in Nowra on business in late 2019. Again took the smart move to drive 20 minutes through picturesque dairy country to the little Oyster hamlet of Greenwell Point. If you haven't heard of it, its a Quiet fishing village best described as clean, beautiful, friendly. Would be an ideal base for 3-5 day stay to explore the region. Only stayed one night at Anchor Bay Motel this time - great accom facing the water for a fabulous price. Big room with enough space for me to spread out & undertake computer/office work in comfort. Small things are important & once again the standard of Linen (sheeting & towels) is outstanding. During this recent trip from Batemans, Wollongong, Highlands & Canberra I stayed at 5 motels in the $150-$225.00 category/night. Only the Anchor Bay is worthy of a positive review & I paid more to stay at the others.

I must admit that Greenwell Point was not on my radar but could not have been happier here. Because of a triathlon in Huskisson, all the hotels on the bigger towns were full. The welcome on arrival signified that luck had directed me to a winner. The room is comfortable with a view overlooking the river and harbour with a kiddies playground just across the street. The number of fisherpersons indicated that there was good fishing from the safety of the harbour. The only complaint is that the top of the shower door frame should be 10cm higher, but being tall, my head is accustomed to being bumped. The village is quiet and peaceful with the big smoke of Vincentia and Huskisson just a short drive away. Would I stay here again? Absolutely yes. If I did not have to get home, I would have extended my stay.

Beautiful river views and a very comfortable, well appointed suite. An excellent motel with a lovely riverfront park and walkway adjacent. And a special thank you to Averill for your friendly welcome and first class service.
