I hadn't appreciated how far away from the harbour we were when I booked the accommodation which isn't a bad thing, this meant our night was v quiet and peaceful, but it did require a 20 minute walk to get to the harbour. The receptionist had upgraded our room to a suite which was v kind and meant we had... More

This motel was in a great location directly across the road from the beach and close to shops and restaurants. There is a small pool but it was big enough and it was at the back of the property rather than next to the road like a lot of others in the area. The room was basic but had everything... More

My wife and I stayed for 6 nights. While some of the furniture was a little dated, our room was clean and comfortable and included convenient kitchen facilities. Some initial difficulties with the room phone were quickly addressed, and we also made use of the free WiFi. The pool and grounds were well-tended and Kym at Reception was very helpful... More

We stopped here on our road trip. The room was basic but clean and comfortable for one night. We enjoyed our stay and felt that it was a good value. Staff was nice and friendly. We would stay there again.

Very good basic motel. Location good. Staff fantastic. We didn't advance book since did not know how far we'd go that day. Very practical touches like liquid soap. No running out! Wish there was a fan in the bathroom.

Positive - greeting at reception was very welcoming and friendly. The room, although very basic, was nice and clean. There was a small verandah outside where we could gather with friends for drinks. Very reasonably priced. Negative - we stayed for two nights for a family birthday in Coffs Harbour, but our room was not made up at all. Perhaps... More

We stayed here for 1 night on our journey north. Lovely lady at reception, very friendly and helpful. The room was lovely, very clean and the bed comfortable. We ate at the Bowls Club a 3 minute walk away, booking in ad non-members took a couple of minutes and the food was excellent.

This place is fantastic - I can't rave about it enough - it is very clean, neat and everything is there (comfortable beds, stocked kitchenette, roomy bathroom, iron and board, extra pillows.......I could go on). Staff are great and helpful and gave heaps of travel advice. It's not a big place but then we liked that. Can not recommend enough... More

Yes, the room and decor is outdated but I have never stayed in a cleaner room! No signs of mould, soap scum or grime. We are currently staying in a superficially beautiful modern high rise in Brisbane that cost a lot more but the cleanliness and attention to detail does not compete. Mattress was very comfortable for the main bed.... More
