Our go to place on the North Coast

Have stayed at Club Maclean a few times now and always been impressed with the motel room as being better than average. Always clean and fresh. The staff have always been helpful. Acces to the Club for meals and refreshments is a bonus. Highly recommended

Ticked All Our Boxes

We stayed for 2 nights & found the room was bright, cheery and very quiet. One of the best features is how Central it is to everything in Maclean. The Bowling club (next door) was friendly & very proactive of the "COVID" issues so the patrons felt safe.

Very Clean, Quiet and Comfortable

Easy to find location, the room was modern, clean and quiet. The bed was comfortable and we enjoyed our brief overnight stay. The club next door provided a good Chinese meal and am sure that there are other dining options in town. Certainly a motel to be revisited should the occasion arise.

"Friendly service"

Stayed for only one night in one of the accessible rooms as we had a high needs disabled person with us. We rang ahead with specific requirements of the room and felt very confident with Shane the manager to carry out our needs.
The room was comfortable, and suited our needs perfectly.
Thanks again Shane for a hassle free stay, which is sometimes unusual when travelling with the disabled.

"Stayed on 2 occasions over a very wet long weekend"

Room (for 2) was very neat and clean. Wifi fast, usb charging points built into power points. All normal facilities.
Being in the Bowls Club complex is a bonus. Club has an excellent Chinese restaurant.
Manager, Shane Collier, deserves a mention for his beyond and above assistance with our arrangements.

Perfect! Clean comfortable and quiet and the staff are friendly and helpful, I will return! Some places I have stayed use strongly sented cleaning products that make my eyes water but not here, clean without the perfume so it’s a big tick from me!

"Country hospitality at its best!"

We attended Maclean for a friends funeral, the staff at the country club could not have been more welcoming or hospitable - even letting us use the managers room to change as we were early for check in.
The rooms are spotless and comfortable and have everything you’ll need.
Maclean is gorgeous and the Chinese at the club was fabulous.
We will return and would happily stay there again.

"Great accommodation for our unexpected stay."

We stayed, unexpectedly, when the A1 was closed. What a great surprise! New; beautifully clean & comfortable; a large room, bed & ensuite; quiet. Close to all facilities & the river. We enjoyed our stay. Thank you.

"High quality comfort and style in Maclean"

Brand new and squeaky clean, the MAS Country Club Maclean Motel is exactly what you're looking for when travelling through this gorgeous part of NSW - high quality, comfortable, affordable, smack-bang in the middle of town and within walking distance to your favourite little cafes and the river. This motel has all the modern extras you expect nowadays from accommodation with it's large king size bed, USB ports for charging, WiFi, large bathroom, air-conditioning and block out blinds.

Highly recommend this motel and will definitely be back - and not just because of the two op shops within walking distance and fabulous coffee at Botero on River St! :)

"Best Disability we have stayed in yet"

Best disability room we have stayed in yet .. a true room built for a wheelchair and bathroom to suit. Even the bed had enough room for my mobile hoist to go under. TV and NETFLIX was a bonus as well as the AC was whisper quiet. Completely enjoyed our stay there and the meals at the Bowls club were well priced and a good size serve. Well done we will be back.

"Clean and comfortable"

"Surprise, super modern accommodation behind the main street"

Needed a room at short notice and found MAS Country Club Motel by chance. Immaculate, clean, modern room with luxurious king bed, large, comfortably, functional bathroom and a new, decent sized fridge.
Staff were very helpful and friendly. Close to supermarket and bottle shops. Great to have dinner sorted within the Club, Chinese restaurant. Would stay here again.

"Clean, Good Location Lovely Town"

Great new hotel, good for families with the layout of the family room. Separate room with 2 singles and own TV so kids had their own space. Clean and comfortable. Right next to the bowls club.Very upmarket to what is available in Maclean.

Karen G - Stayed June 2019, travelled with family


A perfect place to stay, the rooms were excellent and the young lady on the front desk a delight to deal with, very pleasant and nothing was a problem. Ease of access to the Bowls Club with a nice Chinese meal was a bonus. would highly recommend the Motel to any one.

Kevin P - Stayed May 2019, travelled as a couple


We had been driving all day and googled accommodation in MacLean for an overnight stay. This was the most starred listed so we called to see whether there was a vacancy. Yes we have a King room...would that be ok? When we arrived at reception we were greeted warmly by the lady at reception. She said the room allocated was upstairs...was that ok. We were in room 14 one suite away from the stairwell with a store room on the other side. The room had that brand new smell about it...it was large, clean and well appointed. It was also very quiet. Just next door is a Bowls could lub with a chinese restaurant which suited us. We would highly recommend this motel.

"Clean and comfortable"

Modern motel which is relatively new. Clean and comfortable rooms - just what you need after a tiring day driving. The bed was excellent. Service and check-in fast and efficient. The Chinese dinner at the on-site bowls club was wonderful too. I have no qualms recommending this hotel to travelers.

As a regular visitor this Motel I have never been disappointed. Great staff, rooms new, clean and well appointed, modern and clean and a short walk to the centre of town. Looking forward to our next stay....

"Pleasant stay"

I chose this motel because it was close to the town centre but not on the main road, and I wasn't disappointed. It was a very pleasant stay, the room was very clean and well presented. It was a very hot weekend, so thankfully the air conditioner was perfect, quiet and effective. I didn't get a chance to visit the club next door, however I will next time.

"Great Place to Stay"

"Stay here you won't be disappointed"

What a sweet little town! My son and I stayed in a 2 bed room and loved it! After an unpleasant stay in Taree the night before, we couldn’t believe how spacious and lovely this motel was, and it cost the same! The lady at reception was welcoming and helpful. The club across the car park was delicious for dinner.

NicBees - Stayed December 2018, travelled with family

"Clean, modern, great bathroom."

This is a great place to stay on your drive between Sydney and Brisbane. The motel is new, beds are large and comfortable and linen was good quality. There is a modern bathroom and a laundry at the end of the block. Good air conditioning and natural flow through ventilation left the rooms feeling clean and fresh. 
The town was really nice and it is a short drive to Yamba with it's amazing surf beaches.

"Definitely recommend to fellow travellers"

Rooms were beautifully appointed and styled, generous size,large comfy bed. Brand new building and facilities ! Good value for money. Pub food or club food at the doorstep. Catherine was very welcoming and had a great personality. Some great little purchases and friendly people in the nearby shops.
We would definitely stay again.

Brand new, clean and roomy, and at last a motel room with bright lights so you can see in the room at night. It is attached to the bowling club that has a chinese restaurant (didn’t eat there), and just a short 50 metre stroll to the main street where the Maclean Hotel delivers great meals and to the services club. Staff are great. Thoroughly recommend to stay here and enjoy this gorgeous town.

"Very clean, comfy accommodation"

We stayed here for one night with our two kids on the way to the Gold Coast.
The room was pretty much brand new, everything was very clean. We had a seperate room with 2 single beds for the kids, and they even had their own tv.
Free wifi was great.
Staff friendly and gave us milk on arrival which was great.
We walked across the car park to the club for chinese for dinner which was very convenient. 
Can't fault it.

This motel is practically brand new. Tastefully decorated, lovely huge king bed, great linen, towels etc., free wifi. Large room, very quiet although we (room 1) were both close to the restaurant and roadway. Very friendly and helpful at reception. Good car parking spaces. Had a meal at the Chinese restaurant attached to the motel and found their prices very reasonable with large tasty servings. Would definitely stay there again.

"Weekend visit for a wedding"

We recently stayed at Club Maclean and would definitely recommend it to anyone staying in the area. We were there for a friend’s wedding. They live locally and suggested it. The hotel was only recently built so the room was lovely and the king size bed was very comfortable. Catherine greeted us and she was very friendly and extremely helpful. She even recommended the best place for breakfast and this was within walking distance and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

Great motel with a great manager. Catherine goes above & beyond her managerial role to make you feel welcomed & right at home. Easy access to all you need for a weekend away. I would highly recommend you give this motel a try.

"Newest in Maclean"

We usually in Maclean stayed at another Motel as we couldn't find anything else that appealed to us. I discovered and booked 2 rooms at this place. It is almost brand new and very well located. The rooms are of good size and furnished tastefully. The bathroom are nice and clean with excellent lighting. The staff is very nice and helpful. As we visit Maclean a couple of times a year we will definitely book in again. 
Keep up the good work!

"Brand New Accommodation"

Pleasantly surprised that we could book a room last weekend at short notice in this great motel. It has only been open a few months so all rooms are beautiful & clean, bathrooms are sparkling, beds are comfortable (we had a king room), simple but nicely furnished with plenty of room to move. Our room was upstairs but easy access from the carpark, with a club/restaurant right next door within the same complex. We didn't have time to try the restaurant (Chinese available) but on enquiring they would have done takeaway & had it ready for us to take back to our room. Reception staff were very friendly & accomodating, breakfast boxes were available to purchase which were very convenient. The town is small but has all you need, nothing stays open very late on weekends (8pm for food options is prob the latest), there was a great coffee cafe within a short walk which had a great breakfast. Also within walking distance was a lookout (uphill!) & the river, would definately stay here again & recommend for families & couples for a very comfortable overnight stay. Good for sporting groups also - suited our hockey team perfectly

Newly built so the rooms are modern, fresh and perfectly clean. Located in a great small town just a few minutes drive from the main Highway. Well worth a stop. Beds are very comfortable.

Felt safe and secure and the cleanliness was sensational!

Great place to stay

The managers were lovely. The room was clean and tidy and freshly renovated. The perfect place to stay when visiting the Clarence Valley. The rates are so affordable.
