New ownership in 2023 has brought many changes, however our motel still has some older style features and our great value for money prices reflect this.  Motel Miramar will continue to be updated in a style that harks back to the original heyday of Nambucca Heads in the 1920’s and 1930’s. Join us on this journey as the iconic Motel Miramar is restored to its former glory.

Motel Miramar would be delighted to welcome you in the very near future.

At the end of a 6-hour drive from Sydney, I needed to stay somewhere quiet. Having not booked anywhere, Nambucca was the exit I took. Spoke to a couple of locals who suggested the Miramar Motel.
Well, from the outside it looked very ordinary. But I needed to crash. WOW, what a surprise. Art Deco, with an amazing view of the river and the ocean. Room 16. Bliss. And has the RSL next door.

Motel Miramar is honestly a little piece of heaven. After a tiring drive from the Gold Coast, we were completely blown away by how beautiful the location is and the views from our room to the river and ocean were simply stunning. We stayed in a family room which was so comfortable for my husband, myself and our three older children. There is not one thing I could fault about the room - super comfortable beds, excellent A/C and fans, huge fridge and 2 TVs and a stunning balcony to watch the sunset with a glass of wine. I only wish we could have stayed longer! This place is an absolute gem.

Only one night, but had a very restful sleep on a very comfortable bed and good room. The views of the river from the back of the motel are wonderful and the gardens make it serene, green and peaceful. Room is well serviced with an adequate fridge for overnight stay, very nice crockery and cutlery if you want to eat in and good TV that works well and has heaps of channel and digital choices. Small setting outside so we could sit in the pool and watch the river at Sunset. Will come again.

The location of the motel is fabulous perched high up overlooking the river below and out to Nambucca Heads.
The rooms open onto or overlook the manicured lawns and gardens. There are chairs on the verandahs and picnic benches to use. The free BBQ area has fabulous ocean and river views.
At night you can hear the ocean waves rumbling. The rooms have full security doors and screens and a window to open. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this little piece of paradise and would stay here again.

Lovely room overlooking the water. Had everything we needed. Comfortable beds, really clean apartment.
Having the RSL right next door was fabulous, dinner was great especially being able to walk back to room straight after! Would definitely come back to stay again, was a shame that we only stayed one night!

Fantastic hotel. Beds and pillows some of best I've had. Reception so friendly and helpful. Would stay here again no problem!

Our two overnight stays at Motel Miramar Nambucca Heads on our way to and home from Queensland, was an enjoyable experience. From the moment we arrived, we were enveloped in a sense of serenity and comfort that instantly put us at ease.
The room was impeccably clean, and the beds were soft and promised a restful night's sleep after a long day of driving. The water views from the windows were mesmerising and drifting off to sleep, serenaded by the soothing symphony of the ocean, was a delightful experience.

It is the best location, the view is beautiful and the place is so relaxing. The apartment roomy and equipped for a long stay. Just loved it there. Will be back.
