The room we stayed in was on the back wing upstairs and was spacious and clean. The bed was big, however the mattress was a touch soft. It was cold and there was only 1 layer of blanket on the bed. We could not get the recycled air conditioning working and there was no electric blanket. We should have look... More

Hadnt seen this particular beach before, usually drive right through Coffs on my way to Canberra from Brisbane, but decided to stay overnight this time. Found this little gem and the Manageress was superb, she couldn't do enough for me, including letting me have a room on the ground floor so I didn't have to haul my luggage upstairs. So... More

Overnight stop travelling south, very clean, new and in a great location. 150m walk to bowling club for dinner. All you could need in a motel room and a very reasonable price. There was free wifi, large screen TV, air con, toaster kettle etc and room/bathroom was very clean and new.

Stayed for two nights and would stay again. The room was comfortable and a good size. It had everything we needed such as tea/coffee facilities, fridge, couch, TV and fast Wifi. The proprietors were friendly and very helpful. The motel is in a good location, close to the dolphin magic park, many good restaurants to choose from, shops and not... More

My husband and I stopped here on our way from Sydney travelling North. We arrived late in the evening, but were met by friendly staff at Reception with water bottles and recommendations for dinner options nearby. The room was very clean, with a nice bathroom and huge bed. Super fast WiFi, and nice little kitchenette. The location is fabulous, in... More

We stayed here while coming back from Dora Creek and reached around 7.30 P.M. The staff was very friendly. Room was neat and clean and the bathroom was tidy. We had a relaxing night after a long journey and refreshed for the next day trip to Brisbane.

Comfortable, clean rooms, almost a home away from home. Good location, handy to the beach, not far from shops and city centre. Close to clubs and pubs for food and entertainment. Staff were very helpful with local information and made my stay very enjoyable.

Stayed here one night while we were traveling up the coast. It was clean and simple. The lady at the counter was very friendly and helpful. Our only issue was that there was no door on the bathroom. It was a bit weird but not tragic, sure they can fix that easily. Overall a great place to stay near the... More

We turned up about 8pm after a 6 hour drive to be shown to our room, with no bathroom door. There was no door to the bathroom whatsoever and the smell from the bathroom drain was horrid. The bathroom was also filthy with dust. You could see straight into the bathroom from the bed/room and this made the stay very... More
