A great location, but motel room in need of some attention. Very clean, with good linen and comfortable bed. Bathroom very dated, cistern ran intermittently and loudly all night with a very squeaky bathroom door. People were very pleasant and accommodating and looks like some building works might be imminent to bring it up to scratch. I'd stay again based...

Thanks for your honest feedback. We love to hear it so we can make improvements. This is no doubt an older motel that needs a bit of work. We have started renovations, but can only do one room at a time especially during this busy period. Hope everything else was satisfactory and met your needs.

I stayed here for 2 nights with my kids and parents (2 rooms). The location, staff and swimming pool facilities were excellent. Quiet area and great for families. Rooms need to be renovated, though very cleanly maintained. Staff were very helpful.

A last minute family trip to Nowra - we found ourselves staying at the Pleasant Way Motel. Family rooms were very clean and freshly painted, loved having a microwave and basic amenities.

I could not have better things to say about my night at Pleasant Way Motel in Nowra. The staff were extremely helpful and could not do enough to make sure my stay was more comfortable. They had no issue letting me leave my car while I took part in a triathlon and let me use a shower after finishing before...

We are more than happy to help when we can. We are huge supporters of the sporting community as my husband is also part of it. As one of the sponsors of the triathalon that took place just outside of our doors, it allowed us to not only support the event, but promote the Shoalhaven River as well. Glad you...

My husband and I stayed here for one night because he joined a triathlon in Nowra. When we booked, the room we wanted was no longer available, but the manager was kind enough to give us a free room upgrade. The room was simple and neat, and had the basic amenities that we needed (plates, cutlery, mugs, electric kettle, microwave,...

Stayed here a few times when travelling for triathlon events. The new owners have doen extensive renovations to the rooms and it has really lifted the place.

Small coffee/cafe has been added which we didn't try. I was under the impression when I booked this place that it had cooking facilities -which is why I chose it - but while...
