My friend and I did a road trip from Sydney to Coolangatta and decided to break the journey at Coffs Harbour. I looked at booking.com and found this motel...read the terrific reviews....but as it was very cheap rates compared to others, I wanted to look at a room first. The staff were fantastic and nothing was a problem....we booked directly... More

Booked online thru Booking.com Was met by the manager who greeted me by my first name & welcomed me to his motel. They are new owners who have revamped the motel in the last 8 months, and are really interested in making sure your stay is pleasant. Rooms were very comfy (beds great), exceptionally clean, quiet area, and his knowledge... More

My sister and I two single young women felt safe staying here. The staff were very friendly even offering local knowledge of places to eat, things to do and see. The room was clean and what we expected. I would definitely stay here again!

Cannot fault this place. From the friendly check in to the room itself. All good. Has a well stocked kitchenette in it. Ie plates, bowl, cutlery etc. woke with a very sore back though, plus noisy neighbours. No fault of the motel for that though. Would stay again.

The management made us very welcome. We stayed in a King room for 3 days, which was clean and well appointed. Walk across the road & you are on the beach. Will be going back to this place next visit to Coffs for sure.

Booked this motel for a one night stop over on my way to Queensland. I was greeted at reception and told a list of places I could go to eat and I think some attractions, I was tired after my trip and could not take it all in. Would be a good idea if there was an information folder in... More

Stayed for one night on the way to Queensland. Room is adequate, there's a microwave & a bar fridge, no sink. The bed is quite comfortable. Toiletries were provided but are very basic. There was no hair dryer & wanted to borrow one but couldn't get anyone at reception as it was unattended. The walls are very thin, so you... More

Stayed at this Motel with my girlfriend for two nights, overall the place was great, nice bed, big shower, affordable rates, right on the beach etc However, security was poor. We were awoken at 1am by a man throwing up outside our door and nothing was done, He eventually fell asleep laying across the footpath. We drove home and came... More

We travelled from Brisbane to Sydney and back again over a one week period so stayed at various Motels along the way. We were so disappointed when we checked into this place which charged a similar price to everywhere else we had stayed - the curtains were not big enough to close for privacy; the facilities in the room were...
