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

The room looked recently renovated but very cheaply with lots of shortcuts. The taps turned in the opposite direction we had ants in our room, the Sheets were itchy, floor and crockery was not clean and boogies stuck on walls!! Reception unfinished.

My daughter and I stayed here for 3 nights. It was clean and roomy enough for the two of us. The couple running the motel were lovely. They checked on us each day to see if there was anything we needed. It was a quiet location and straight across the road from the beach and a park area with BBQ's... More

My husband and I stayed at the surf beach motel as a stop over on the way up to brisbane. The motel was easy to get to, staff were very accommodating and the room was clean, spacious and comfortable. The price was extremely reasonable.

Excellent personal and friendly customer service from the owners! The rooms are clean, spacious and well laid out. We would definitely stay there again should we be traveling through Coffs Harbour again. We will be recommending Surf Beach Motel to friends and family. Thank you!

Clean, quite and comfortable. All I expect from a motel. Close to the beach, friendly staff, nothing fancy but more than I expected. Great location, I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a clean and quite place to stay. Thanx to the friendly staff.
