Checking in and out was very easy, catered for large booking with ease. Friendly and helpful, short walk to city centre, room tidy and kept clean, plenty of hot water, coffee and tea facilities with fridge in room, owners are keen to ensure a happy stay.

after a 9 hour train trip we found this very warm welcome awaiting us. The lovely lady at reception marked up a map to show us where the best eating places were and then came up the stairs to show us the "workings" of our room. The king bed was huge and so comfortable I wasn't in a hurry to... More

We stayed here to break the journey from Sydney to the Far North Coast. Although by no means brand new, our room was clean, recently painted and nicely appointed. On-line room rate was good value. Staff at Reception were most helpful with suggestions for Restaurants. Main road noise did not really bother us. Property even has a separate guest lounge... More

This is obviously a 70's dark brick construction, similar to the vintage of a house my father built back in that time when I was a boy. The owners have spruced it up without diminishing the original character. Most importantly the bathrooms are bright and white. Can just imagine how dark the original was! The bed is the best feature.... More

We stayed here as an overnight stay whilst travelling along the East Coast and so we could visit Coffs Harbour. The motel was easy to find being on the main highway. The room was clean and was everything we needed for the night. The rooms have apparently recently been renovated but I think they could benefit from removing the dark... More

Really didn't want to leave. Everything was perfect and the hosts were very friendly and accommodating. Reading room was an unexpected bonus, very cosy. Perfect for our dog also. Can't wait to visit again.

We stayed overnight in this motel a week ago and we were very happy with the friendly service we received. We were shown to our room by the gentleman in reception (whom I assume was the owner) and also shown where everything was. The room was absolutely spotless. We have no complaints at all. The motel is walking distance to... More

One night stay where all we needed was a place to sleep. Lady took me to room, showed all the features, made sure we had a map of where to get a good meal in the morning. King room was well appointed and spotless, bathroom tiny, but very clean. Only dodgy item was the old style in wall aircon which... More

Sue was nice and friendly, a friend of mine had a toilet issue and asked what was going to happen as she needed to get to her room. The owner (Male) said to get her money back and check out abruptly. We weren't impressed. At night he was walking around naked in his apartment with the blinds not drawn. The... More

Firstly the toilet issue the truth is that there was a problem with the toilet which was rectified within the hour. The lady was very irate and requested another room unfortunately we were fully booked and did not have an alternative. Due to her irate manner I could only offer her a full refund if she wished to leave, she... More
