If you want views and a peaceful location, this is definitely not the place! Despite that, the owners have done their best to make the little rooms as welcoming as possible. Spotlessly clean linen, towels and room, with complimentary tea, coffee (fresh milk) and biscuits provided, food a short walk away, sadly not in a gourmet area - it was... More

From the booking process right through to checking out, Annette, Mike & their staff were friendly, helpful & available to assist with meeting our needs. We flew in from Sydney on a 2 night stay-over for a dance event & were able to book in to our room on arrival. It's a charming establishment, well situated close to the CBD... More

We stayed for one night only as we were heading North. The motel style room was very clean and comfortable. The Manager was particularly friendly and helpful. We found that the bed was extremely comfortable and the shower offered good pressure and lovely hot water.

Reception friendly and efficient. Rooms are old, small poorly furnished and very dated. This is no more than a sleep over if you are passing late at night on your way somewhere else. Very noisy even though we where down the back, road noise kept us awake for most of the night. Parking adequate but very tight. To be honest... More

This old girl is in need of a makeover but the rooms are very clean and the price is very reasonable. Very professional and friendly management staff. Main point is that it is very close to licensed clubs and hotels and the shopping complex. Most is a very short walk. Even though the motel is on the main highway through... More

I stayed at the Chelsea Motor Inn as a stopover for a trip from Sydney to Brisbane. The motel itself was clean, comfortable and conveniently located, however the staff were the real stars of the Inn. They were friendly, helpful and full of good advice which was greatly appreciated.

I stay at the Chelsea regularly for work. The motel is on a busy highway, but seriously if you close the window and use the air conditioner you hardly hear it. The staff are so friendly and the property is extremely clean and comfortable. Conveniently located in the centre of town, close to shops, clubs, pubs and restaurants. So well... More

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

It's 3 stars and doesn't pretend to be otherwise. A comfortable bed, hot shower with great pressure, airconditioned, very well located and staff are friendly - it's reasonably priced, particularly if rated against absurdly expensive rooms in other Coffs Harbour motels and resorts. Would stay here again. I think they know the bathrooms could do with a refurb :-).

Me and my wife stayed at Chelsea Motor Inn on a Saturday night in the month of Dec and had a great experience. The service was good and staff was friendly. Luckily there were no trucks on that night and we had a good night sleep. Highly recommended.
