Always a great place for a stop over, especially when travelling with pets. Over the years this property has not failed to provide exceptional service and cleanliness. The restaurant has always and continues to provide great room service. The owners are striving to improve the property, therefore some of the rooms inclusions are 4* surrounded by 3* styling from the... More

We were absolutely blown away by the wonderful hospitality shown by the staff here. First of all, this is a motel, don't come here looking for luxurious rooms with an amazing view... You get what you pay for, in this case, you pay quite a little and you get quite a lot! Rooms are spacious, big and comfortable beds (best... More

This was our third stay as a stop over between Sydney and Gold Coast over the past 6 years. Mum, dad and four kids aged between 8 & 14. Just can't beat the size of the room, the separate rooms, shower, the pool, and the friendly service. Do yourself a favour as well, if you stay here, try the restaurant... More

Have stayed here many times and its always been good. This time we requested two rooms side by side and as close to the restaurant as possible as my elderly Mother was traveling with us. Management obliged and we were most appreciative. It does have to be said though these rooms are not a patch on those we've had during... More

Hi Murray, Thank you for your review. I am sorry you weren't quite satisfied with your room this stay. Most of our budget rooms have been upgraded with new bathrooms, but we still do have a few to finish. If ever you need transport around the property, please don't hesitate to ask us for a buggy transfer to make it... More

Wife and I stayed at the Big windmill last weekend. Was advised by a colleague after I'd booked that had me concerned. However I was pleasantly surprised by the room. We stayed towards the back of the complex in a deluxe queen room. No noise and exceptionally clean room. Despite my early reservations the room turned out to be great... More

The highway location and 24hr check-in was our main reason for x2 overnight stays. The automated check-in machine, meant we didn't have to push ourselves with driving and could arrive at anytime with no booking. Doesn't look like much from the outside, but the rooms were spacious and clean! Beds were comfortable with good hotel quality linen. We were in... More

Thank you for taking the time to review us. Our convenient 24 hour Kiosk check in is perfect for those who need somewhere to stop late at night. I am glad you found it to your liking.

I am a rep on the road and have been away from home for almost 10 days. The clean well layed out rooms are perfect to unwind and relax. Very friendly service all round. Everytime time I travel through Coffs this is the only place I stay

We had a stop over at the Big Windmill last month on the way to the Gold Coast. We arranged a late checkin prior to arrival.
