We decided to stay at Nautilus for a week away from Brisbane in the beautiful Coffs Harbour. We checked in and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. we were given room 161 and the first thing we noticed as that a bush turkey had been ripping apart the gardens in the villa in front of ours scattering mulch all...

we just stayed here for five days and it was great. It is right on the beach and the room was recently renovated to a good standard, very spacious with all you need for a great stay. we were in coffs to visit family so we didnt need to use resort facilities. The resort itself is tired but acceptable. we... More

The grounds are impeccable. The gardens are very well maintained The facilities are very good. The rooms need slight upgrading as the decor is a bit old and there is windows that don't close properly. The rooms are in desperate need of pest control as nobody enjoys being woken up by a cockroach crawling on their body in the middle... More

We were so disappointed with our two night stay that we decided to forfeit our second night's fee and return home. The pictures look like it is vastly superior to what it really is. Our two bedroom apartment felt dirty, the decor was awful, the spa is totally overrated - I've stayed in places which are not called a "villa... More

We stayed in villa 129 over the Christmas week. The resort itself is beautiful and well kept. The swimming pools are clean and the kids really enjoyed it. The view is spectacular. It is not really a swimming beach, as we noticed most beaches in the area are not really for swimming. Bernie at reception is such an amazing person,... More

This place was a delight to stay at. No issue with noise like we have had at other motels/apartments. We had the 3 bedroom apartment with a good sized kitchen and spacious living area. There was a bathroom and an ensuite. There were 2 children and 4 adults staying with plenty of room. We even fit in 2 adults for... More

We were disappointed - can't understand why reviewers are giving this place 4 stars? Reading Trip Advisor and looking at the hotel website, we expected a clean, modern complex. However, most of the Nautilus buildings appear to date from the 1970s. We stayed in the expensive beach front villa 183. From the website photos and its location, we expected to... More

We stayed in Villa 131 which is a freestanding 2 bedroom villa. When we arrived into Coffs it started raining and it didn't stop for 3 days... We were very thankful of all the space and comfort the villa offered. Unfortunately we were not able to swim in the pool or enjoy the deck overlooking the beach due to the... More

My partner and I enjoyed a delightful weekend in in a spacious, light filled studio villa with our own private courtyard. The gardens are beautiful tropical walkways that lead you to the beach and the most exceptional bistro. We dined on the deck overlooking the beach... The location is amazing, and the service by Cass and Candy was first class.... More

What a beautiful place to stay in a perfact setting and location. Pool was beautiful and clean, beachfront cafe with wonderful food and view highly recommend. Units were very clean and fresh will most definitely be back. Didn't use the spa or gym facility but definitely a great extra.
