Stayed 2 nights, required two rooms but there were none so we settled on a family room with two separate rooms. It was very clean & comfortable. The downside was only one bathroom. The Thai restaurant next door is good if you enjoy Thai food. There is a pub down the road 5 mins walk is also good. The pool... More

Thank you for taking the time for your feedback. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. As you experienced we are just under a 10 minute drive to the beach. We are however 500m to the city centre so many of our guests enjoy our central location to the CBD. We look forward to seeing you again. Kindest regards... More

My Family stayed here on the way home from a holiday in Brisbane. We happened to get caught in terrible traffic and took an inland route to Coffs which delayed our arrival by several hrs. This was not a problem for the lovely staff at the hotel as when I rang I had a chat with the girl at the... More

Knowing there are many motels in Coff's Harbour, I was a bit nervous as motels are not on my list of places I like to stay. The Parkside was perfect for our two-night stay. It was clean, spacious for three people, and provided a nice place to rest after a long day of exploring the scenery. The bathroom was very... More

The pros, the people who work here are very helpful. The shower is great. Air conditioning worked well. The cons, They charge 5$ per day for wifi that doesn't work. Parking is limited. Get back early or you will have a room and nowhere to park. The bedding is outdated. The pillows were uncomfortable, for my liking. The beds could... More

Carpark was a bit tight, narrow spots not necessarily in front of room, would be lucky to get a spot on the street either. Typical motor inn, bit tired, but clean and satisfactory. We had a room tucked in the back corner, so was a bit dark. Toilet roll holder fell off the wall, so probably due for a bit... More

Room was clean with no surprises, Bathroom bright and clean also. Found a relaxed atmosphere here. The advertised restaurant on the sign in front was not to be found. Motel is close to the centre of town so can choose from many places to eat.
