Ideal place to stay overnight if traveling up North or down South. Stayed for one night with the group of people. Service was great and we even enjoyed the Big Windmill restaurant, a bit overpriced however worth the price for the convenience. Rooms are old, despite that everything looks clean and neat.

We requested a quiet room and unfortunately got a very noisy one. The truck noise through the night was never ending, making sleep very difficult.... More

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!!!

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
