I knew from the friendly welcome we got at reception that this was going to be a good one and I wasn't wrong. We were amazed at the family rooms we stayed in here. "Just like a five-star hotel" we said. And that about sums it up. Everything was excellent and very good value.

We stayed here for 2x 1-nighters during a road trip with our 19 month old. The first stay was on the 1st floor and it had 2 bedrooms. The second stay was in a 2nd floor single room (we were upgraded) containing a single and queen bed in the one room. On both occasions the beds were comfy, noise was... More

What a wonderful experience, the rooms are clean and well appointed, breakfast homely and close to other restaurants and attractions. Most impressive is the owners willingness to go that bit further. We had only intended to stay one night, but due to illness we ended up staying 6 nights, they could not have been more helpful, thank you for all... More

Stayed here 2 nights for work. The room was a good size with a queen and a single, large bathroom mad great sized shower. Quiet air conditioning, small TV and a decent balcony. Wi fi is free and is relatively stable. I had to reboot once but at 5pm possibly everybody had just jumped on. The corridors are tile so... More

We stayed here overnight on a road trip back to Brisbane. We were greeted by the most lovely and helpful couple who manage the hotel. The cost was very reasonable, all common areas were very clean and tidy. Our room was very clean with everything we needed for our short stay. Would highly recommend anyone wanting a nice place to...

My husband and I stayed on night at this motel. We were given a room on the top floor with a balcony (with a view of the jetty area). The room was a good size and was comfortable. I did see some of the other rooms and they were a lot smaller than ours without a view. We realized we... More

Thank you for posting your helpful comments. The internet reception is good most of the time in most of the property, and always FREE! I can't explain why sometimes someone can't log on when others do .....I don't think the 'techies' know either! Hope we see you again soon. More

A beautiful little Motel and the best value for money we have ever encountered. The staff were very friendly and helpful along with the couple who manage the hotel. Our room was comfortable and very clean and location was excellent with walking distance to the beach, jetty, restaurants, etc. We had never been to Coffs before and we drove in... More

We travelled with another couple and their room was a nice size with a nice balcony. Our room however, was very basic, and small with no balcony. The couple who manage the motel were very friendly and helpful. There was a guest laundry (reasonably priced). Our disappointment however was with the size of the pool. It was more like a... More

Thank you for your review. As you saw we have a range of rooms, some more spacious with balconies like your friend's and others with spa baths, or kitchens or separate living areas, so guests can book a room which suits their needs and budget. Our pool is small, not resort style, but big enough to cool off in, or... More

Checkin was quick and easy. I had a spa room. The spa was a good size and the room and common areas clean and tidy. You are concious of the echo in the corridor as you go to your room. Very close to a restaurant strip. Bed was confortable.

This motel was a great place to stop overnight. As I am in a wheelchair most of the time I find it difficult to negotiate stairs etc but the hosts of this motel made everything easy for me including being able to view the room before booking in. The rooms (two bedrooms and a bathroom) were clean and well kept... More
