We stayed for 1 night in a ground floor unit at the rear of the complex. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable, making for a quiet nights sleep! There is plenty of parking available. The gentleman at the front desk was lovely and friendly. A bonus is that the Ex-Serviceman's Club is just across the road. Highly... More

Deciding to get away for my husbands birthday we once again hit Coffs Harbour, we tend to try different places each time including some of the big resorts, and they tend to be a bit disappointing. Chelsea is a breath of fresh air, we called and booked the King spa room and the gentleman on the front desk was amazing,... More

This was our fourth trip to Coffs Harbour over the past eight years, and we have stayed somewhere different each time. The Chelsea Motor Inn has actually been the best accommodation so far (with our two previous visits, we tried the bigger resorts). It's well situated in the centre of town, with good restaurants and a nice little shopping arcade... More

Chelsea Motor Inn Coffs Harbour is a decent overnighter for anyone in need of a stopover after a long drive or a stay in Coffs Harbour. The hotel is conveniently near the Coffs Harbour Ex-Services club and shops. The rooms are an average size, however were large enough for our stay (2 adults, 1 child). The room had a kitchenette,...

We needed a hotel for a overnight stop over between Sydney & Brisbane. We found this gem online whilst two hours away on the road. The manager is a very welcoming wonderful man, he made sure we had heaps of milk! He gave us (2 adults/1 child) a massive family room that had 4 single beds and 1 new Queen... More

We chose this hotel as it was able to accommodate our car trailer. The main road location did not concern us, but some guests may prefer a less busy location. The motel was full the night we stayed but there was no noise transferred from other guests and our room was to the rear of the property and road noise... More

Nice clean rooms and within walking distance of restaurants and shops. Right on the highway so fairly noisy. Air conditioner worked well. Pretty standard motel and quite adequate for an overnight stay. Definitely not a destination motel

Rooms are clean but very small. Thr new air conditioner was welcome as it was needed for ventilation and was quiet. There were no security screens so doors and windows had to remain closed. Not comfortable with the manual recording of credit card details by the manager.

Our room was at the back, but the sound of B-doubles trundling past is a disadvantage and was still very noticeable. Bed was too soft. Free Wi fi didn't work the first night and was a bit hit and miss. Budget motel, so guess you get what you pay for - disappointing that no plates/bowls or cutlery other than teaspoons... More
