We stayed here twice for overnight stays on the way to and from Brisbane based on the reviews on this site. I have to say the motel lived up to all the reviews and was extremely comfortable and clean. The room we had for our second stay had amazing views out over the water and was quiet and restful.

Excellent location, excellent size room for families in their family rooms which has a kitchenette. We ALWAYS stay here when driving through from Bne to Syd and back and have never been disappointed. The kids absolutely love staying here, the motel is very clean, its run by very lovely managers and all the great restaurants are right across the road!... More

Tastefully renovated rooms. I was on my own so size wasn't an issue but I wouldn't want more than 2 in my room. I sleep light and the walls are thin so didn't get great sleep. Wasn't helped when the pub across the road closed either, and this was a Tuesday night. I would imagine Friday and Saturday to be... More

We appreciate you took the time to post a review, thank you. Your stay coincided with a very large sporting tournament held in Coffs Harbour that week. While we only had a few guests staying for the event, as mostly mid-week we are busy with corporate guests, there would have been many players staying elsewhere in the Jetty area and... More

We stayed on the first floor with a young child. Agree with many other reviews that the cleanliness is exceptional. Being at the back of the motel we found there to be no noise at all and this was a good exchange for the street noise others experienced. There was a small table with 2 chairs in the main room,...

Thanks you for your review, we're glad you found your room exceptionally clean and quiet. The car parking can be a bit tight, we do wish we could enlarge the size of the car parks but the pylons holding up the building prevent that! There is usually parking available on the street as well. Wishing you safe travels. More

Very clean and great for a short stay. Very close to shops and restaurants. Short walk to the jetty. A bit of road noise which is not good for a light sleeper. Price was good for the location with everything in walking distance. Would stay there again on another visit.

We stayed here during our short stay in Coffs Harbour. Motel has nice, comfortable rooms, nothing special but clean and a balcony. The pool is very very small. 3*2) near to restaurants. We did not choose breakfast.

Thank you for your review, I'm glad you found our rooms clean and comfortable. You're right, our pool is small, but it is good to cool off in, alternatively the patrolled beach or harbour are just down the road. Wishing you happy travels. More

Staff were pleasant, and motel was nicely placed in an area where everything was well within walking distance. A nice leisurely walk will take you to the shore/jetty in no time. Facilities and room were well kept. Definitely value for money :)

It has to be said that the location is good. It's near really good restaurants and a short walk to the beach. However the motel itself is not fantastic. The walls are very tin and I was woken by the person in the room next door peeing in the bathroom. Then again by the person the other side when their... More

I'm glad you enjoyed our good location near restaurants and the beach but am sorry to hear your sleep was disturbed by adjacent room noise. If you would advise us of the room you stayed in we could assess the issue and see what could be done. Thank you. More
