We really enjoyed our stay at the Bosuns Inn. We received a warm and friendly welcome (with lots of advice on things to do and see during our short stop in Coffs Harbour). The rooms themselves are clean, with very comfortable beds, fantastic shower and very quiet. The location is excellent - straight across the road from a lovely beach... More

We stayed here 2 years ago last year staying elsewhere but not enjoying our stay we decided to go back to an old faithful! We weren't disappointed. It's an older style motel but VERY clean with really comfortable beds, nice hot shower and easy walk to pubs and clubs for dinner. Directly across the road from the beach, nice for... More

These people are SHARKS.........Because I rang ahead and cancelled, they took my money off my credit card with out telling me. A phone call would of been nice, I left one with them. But no-one called me back. When I rang no one said that they would charge me and no one rang me back. And now they took $110... More

Stayed 1 night in 1 bedroom apartment. Very clean with friendly hosts. Free wi-fi a bit hit and miss - sometimes available, sometimes not. Shower just a trickle and bathroom extremely small and basic. Bed comfortable, lounge uncomfortable. Worst part was we didn't realise til morning that the refrigerator was not turned on so spoiled food was the result. Have... More

We stayed one night, when travelling down the coast; and we stayed another night on our return journey. I chose this motel because we had our adult son accompanying us and I was able to book a room with a separate bedroom enclosed, at a decent rate. The room was immaculately clean and fresh, although a tad small in size... More

Stayed 2 nights in a free upgrade room, hosts were very helpful and welcoming. Comfortable and quiet. Did not swim as pool area quite small and seating rather crowded. Located opposite the beach for walking, and within walking distance of the main street for dining so long as you are reasonably fit. Recommend visiting the beaches just north of this... More

Booked this place because of its location and it had really good reviews on Trip Advisor. It definitely lived up to its reviews! We stayed in the Novotel the night before and the bed at Bosuns was 100 times more comfy, rooms were cosy, location great & great value for money! Would highly recommend.

Stay: 3 noiseless nights in Mar/April. Bosuns Inn, on Beach Rd & opposite Park Beach. Park Beach is a peaceful & wonderful place to just sit + recharge the batteries & paddle your tootsies in the warm water. I was on the ground floor of the motel, all the conveniences supplied, except shampoo. Good tv reception + Foxtel, hot water... More

Friendly people, simple clean rooms. We stayed just for a night while driving up the pacific coast. We faced a little problem with the parking but the staff helped us figure it out eventually. Not too sure if I would recommend this for a longer stay, the rooms are small and the pool is not very inviting.
