My corporate staff and I have been staying here for years. We have always had great experiences and known the staff to be exceptional at what they do - there seems to have been a change in management - the reception and cleaning staff are all still wonderful but OH DEAR the new management has very big shoes to fill....

We were passing through Coffs and wanted something simple and good value. we certainly got it at the Big Windmill. The main attraction was the friendly and helpful staff, but the spacious and clean room (we got one of the back rooms, away from the road) was also appreciated.

Arrived after a long day... receptionist was very friendly and helpful, the room was very clean, and well presented. I do travel quite often as part of my employment and stay in quite a few motels and this is certainly value for money. Very happy, well done guys!!!

Have visited the Big Windmill several times since last July and we are staying there now. It was good before but it is becoming excellent. A great deal of renovation to the rooms has been done and the result is splendid. The place is pet friendly, there is free WiFi, which I am using now, a restaurant on site (which... More

Dated, but it's clean and more then sufficient. Great place to stop over from sydney to brisbane. Pets are allowed, and my dog had a comfortable stay! There is an off leash park not to far away which is great for a quick run for the dog

Thanks for your review, "Dated" our renovated rooms, with new beds, TV, triple sheeting, bed coverings, furniture, desk, appliances, floor coverings and fresh paint have made a difference and were completed prior to your stay, now that’s fresh! However our original "but clean" bathrooms are next on this list for refurbishment. I hope to welcome you back to a completed... More

While it looks dated on the outside when you drive past, the staff is friendly, the rooms are clean and have been renovated and it was pet friendly with dog bowl provided and a friendly note. There is a grassed area at the very back we let our dog run around on (on leash). We had an enjoyable overnight stay.

I was with a coach party some members of which were less agile than myself. The young manager met the coach and transported some older members and their luggage to their rooms in a golf buggy - a nice touch. I was alone in room 22, the décor was very dated and the alarm clock impossible to understand. I was... More

The check in was faultless. The room was clean comfortable and well presented, although the one we had had not yet been renovated it was quite good although a little dated.
