“Great stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

We travelled to Coffs for a wedding recently and stayed for two nights, staff were very welcoming, first impression of room was nice, clean and smelt beautiful. Beds and linen were nice, soft and comfy. Would stay again no worries thank you :)

Room Tip: Balcony room was fantastic

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

We stayed at this hotel for one night. The room was of average size and clean, the bed was very comfortable.

I found the room a bit noisy during the evening and early morning.

The water pressure in the shower was huge -so big in fact that it pushed the shower head angle upwards just as the temperature of the water changed (someone in another room using their shower?) and I had to do battle with hot water at face height to get the shower head back down. A minor annoyance.

We did not stay for breakfast, but there were people sitting in the small breakfast area when we checked out.

Overall we had a good nights sleep in a comfortable bed. The desk staff were friendly and chatty when we asked for information or directions.

The Motel was exactly as had been reviewed on Trip Advisor. It was on previous reviews that I chose this motel for an overnight stay from the Gold Coast to Sydney. The place was immaculate. Thoroughly recommend it for an overnight stay. We will return.

I'm always apprehensive when booking motels. I could not have been happier with my choice for this one. We had a two bedroom suite which was well appointed and comfortable. It would have to have been one of the cleanest rooms I have ever stayed in! They even had decent tea and coffee.

I found the staff friendly and helpful with any request we had. The harbour and marina location was superb for us, with great cafes, restaurants and a bottlo literally a stones throw away.

The parking is a little tight for large vehicles, however there is plenty of space on the street outside. I would not hesitate to recommend this motel, it's almost unbelievable value for the money. I would not be tempted to stay elsewhere in Coffs.

On our way to Qld spent one night at the Motel. What a fantastic room and friendly staff. Everything was clean clean clean. Wish I could have said the same once we arrived in Qld. There was nothing I could say negative about the room. Great for a family and great location to places to eat.
Thanks again to the great staff.

This is in a great location close to beach and a lot of eating places near by including a club across the road. Very clean and well maintained. Staff are extremlely friendly and very helpful.
As you are off the main road you do not hear the highway traffic but are only around the corner from the main road and very centrally located to all tourist spots

Room Tip: I was in the family room overlooking the main Harbour Drive. Was very good the kids had a tv as did...

This motel is great for the price and a real gem in Coffs. We had to come down from the Gold Coast for the night and were very impressed with the clean and neat layout the comfortable bed and general layout of the room.

Room Tip: The staff are very helpful in meeting your needs
