Had a week over and the Bombora provided a decent cheap stay. Probably the only things that were not so good was the shower, which was very tired looking and the bed was a bit rigid where it joins in the middle. If you get the basic rate, room keeping is limited so you have to expect that. Apart from... More

I stayed at the Bombora Resort for two nights in January 2013 and had a room on the same level as Reception, away from the street. The rate was inexpensive, the room was reasonably comfortable (if small) and the location is great with a wonderful big park right next door, and the main shopping centre and the beach only 10...

I'm glad we only stayed one weekend. Even though the parklands are nice and right there, the room was nothing we would expect for over $100 a night. The sink was kitchen and bathroom sink in one and there was no hair dryer. We didn't feel comfortable taking off our shoes, it was just not clean enough. There was NO... More

Thankfully we only had to stay here for the one night. Perhaps we were just unlucky, as it was at the tail-end of the school holidays and the start of the Australia Day Weekend and we seemed to have got a very over-priced and somewhat unclean room. We checked in shortly before 5pm - reception closes at 5pm! By the... More

Quiet location overlooking parklands with ocean views, walking distance to shops, restaurants and the entertainment precinct. Very friendly resort managers and staff with service to match. I have stayed at this resort many times and would highly recommend it to anyone.

A quick glance at my other reviews will show that i`m not really used to roughing it. Usually staying at 5 star hotels etc gives you a little bit of a shock when you are then forced to stay at a motel. In no way am i being negative about the property itself, its just that you suddenly discover why... More

Have stayed in Coolangatta often over the years, but this place was the best value so far. Had a room overlooking the pool & the large park for $79.00, which on the Gold Coast, is pretty good value! It is a short walk through the park to the beach, shops, cinemas, restaurants & the centre of Coolangatta. Located in a... More

Stayed here with a friend for two weeks - our first stop on our backpacking tour - and we really loved it! Coming from Sydney, and a pretty disgusting, cockroach-ridden dump, anything would have been an improvement! We were on the ground floor, a few steps away from the pool. The resort faces a lovely park and the beach and... More

I have stayed at Bombora Resort maybe 10 times over the past 3 years, it is my secret Coolangatta retreat from the world. I have stayed alone, with my partner & sometimes I even treat my kids with a trip away. The prices are fantastic & allow me to indulge my need for a beach escape every couple of months.... More
