We stayed the night on our way to Gold Coast. The family room was surprisingly large, with twin beds in the living area, kitchenette, nice bathroom and a bedroom with a queen bed. Split aircon, 2 balconies. It was nicely furnished but not lavish. Everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Across the street were several resturants, just a 5... More

My wife and I were passing through Coffs harbour and needed somewhere to stay for one night. We played $125 for a one bedroom apartment, it was nicely decorated and had everything we needed. Short walk to bars and restaurants. Recommended

Family and I were looking for a place to stay on the way to Queensland and booked the one bedroom apartment because I couldn't find anywhere else to stay! It was fantastic! The apartment was spacious and I LOVED the fact the bedroom had a separate air conditioner. The kitchenette was perfect for a family staying longer than one night.... More

Excellent for motel accommodation. So close to restaurants, beach, ditch the car, can walk everywhere! Even downtown Coffs CBD is a lovely walk along the Coffs creek trail 1.8km. Jetty area is still an under rated part of Coffs Harbour, but the beaches, jetty, marina, mutton bird island, are all magnificent. Comparable to anything Australia wide. And you are right... More

This hotel far exceeded our expectations. Lovely and friendly staff, super clean modern rooms, funky cafes directly across the road and a cute little pool that our 5 year old loved. It is also walking distance to the IGA supermarket and the harbour.

This place is fantastic. Great location from the water, fantastic location to restaurants and the people running it are amazing. For the money paid, there is no way you can say anything negative about this place.

I've stayed at this property a couple of times now and it's been very good on each occasion. The location is great, being across the road from restaurants, the pub and also within walking distance of the jetty, porpoise pool and shops. The rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable. There is parking on-site. They only have stairs but are happy... More

My wife and I were doing a road trip heading north towards Bundaberg where our daughter lives. We were looking for a reasonably priced but comfortable stopover. This place exceeded expectations. We were given a choice of what were in effect mini-apartments. We chose one with a view towards the sea and a balcony. The motel was very well equipped... More

Thank you very much for your review, it sounds like you enjoyed your stay. I'm sorry you were bothered by smoke from another guest's balcony. All of our rooms, breakfast room, pool and entrance areas are non-smoking, (unfortunately the law is grey in the balcony area). Hopefully everyone will be non-smokers soon! More

Room was not large, but was spotless and well appointed. Bed was comfortable and we had a great nights sleep. Location is central to the Jetty precinct, and perfectly situated to access great eateries. Very friendly reception at check in and helpful in every regard. We will stay here again.
