First of all: Nobody was there, I had to wait some time to check in. Then I was told to pay another credit card fee which was never mentioned on booking.com where I booked the hotel and never happened to me before. I didn't get the password for the internet (although it said it was free), the reception lady already... More

CoffsIB, General Manager at Ibis Budget Coffs Harbour, responded to this review

Hi tmuc Thank you for the review. As it is a small hotel, there is only one receptionist on at a time resulting in that person being more than just a receptionist. We do have a buzzer as from time to time the receptionist is required in the the office just behind the reception where other daily hotel work needs... More

Its called budget accomodation for a reason - there are simply NO frills whatever. No kettle in the room and the coffee machine in the foyer is broken. The carpet is horribly stained and while the sheets seem clean enough the bed is cheap and uncomfortable. The common laundry area is littered with dirty doonas with the stuffing coming out.... More

Stayed there for a couple of nights on business. Simple, clean and cheap room as you expect with IBIS Budget. But plenty of parking and walking distance to main street and a couple of goof restaurants and neighboring hotels. So was a pleasant stay.

Neat and clean hotel. Good for the price. The only thing I missed was the tea in the room. But not complaining for feh price paid. We stopped overnight enroute our trip to Gold Coast and took 2 rooms. While they were small, they were neat and comfy. Perfect for a sleep.

Very typical Ibis Budget stay. Rooms the same as they always are, neat, suitable and comfortable. Staff performed their jobs on check in to an acceptable standard but not overly welcoming. We generally stay at the Ibis as the halfway point on our trips to Sydney, and it has always been suitable. Great restaurant at the pub beside the hotel.

For the price, it's just ok. One night is enough. It's basic, but it is relatively modern and it's clean, which is the main thing. No tea/coffee facilities in the room, but they have vending machines which take coins only. Rooms are very small - nowhere convenient to put your luggage. Some of the clientele seem a bit... well... rowdy,... More

Friendly staff very helpful. Loved the fact I had a clean bed too sleep in a TV too watch. And a hot shower. Lovely meals at the pub next door. Breakfast was quaint and cheap. I've been at many hotels and the prices for just cereal and toast your looking at $12.50 so I was happy with $7 which is... More

We stayed for one night on our way from Sydney to Noosa and just wanted a room for the night. The room was very basic with no room for suitcases and the bathroom shower taps came off when you turned the handles. It was noisy as the pub next door had some sort of event on so little sleep was... More
