We are happy to assist in accommodating larger groups, including sports groups, wedding parties and family reunions. We can also organise breakfast and meal packages for groups through the adjacent Nambucca Heads RSL.

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. In the coming 12 months 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.


Our rooms have all the usual amenities including an ensuite bathroom. We offer a variety of room configurations with options suitable for single travellers, couples, families and groups all at a great price.

Scenic Views

The word ‘Miramar’ means ‘sea-view’ and, with the motel perched on a cliff overlooking the mouth of the Nambucca River, most of our rooms offer lovely views over our beautiful tropical gardens to the river and ocean.  Ideal for a picnic or to relax and read a book.

RobynAugust 23

This property was a great surprise as it was a last minute booking. The views from our window gave us a magnificent view of the sunrise. There was a table outside on the grass we could sit at. Inside the room was very clean and comfortable. The towels were so soft you could wrap them around a baby. Next door was a surf club with delicious food.

KateAugust 23

The highlight of this motel is the exceptional view from it's gorgeous garden. Lots of space to walk about and enjoy a spectacular view. A lovely viewing spacious deck with a BBQ facility was also available. The welcome from the staff and owner was warm and sincere. The motel was fully booked and it was still very quiet. Barely heard other guests. The beds were very comfortable with fabulous mattress toppers, heavenly pillows and high quality linen.
