Having driven through heavy rain following the arrival of the ex tropical storm (Cyclone Oswald), we were so relieved to find this most comfortable accommodation, and made welcome by Chris, the Inn's owner/manager. Our intention was to stay for one night whilst travelling north to Cairns but due to the bad weather conditions, we stayed 2 nights which was not a problem as we had the best of facilities offered to us. We had the choice of a standard room or a bigger room for an extra 10 AUSD, both fully equipped with quality beds, bedding, TV, fridge, air con, towels, toiletries and plenty of coffee/tea and biscuits to avail ourselves of. There was the added bonus of free Wifi with excellent reception.
The Inn is on the main road going into the centre of town and is set back just a little. At times you can hear some traffic noise but nothing that disturbed us. When we arrived at the Inn, Chris helped point us in the right direction, by handing us a booklet on all the attractions in Coff's Harbour, explaining the finer details of how to get there and where. With the weather being so bad, she offered us a whole array of DVDs that we could watch (though this service is available all the time) and even checked out the local cinema times if we fancied seeing of the films.
We were made to feel very comfortable with a change of towels and bedding if needed, plenty of refreshments which were regularly replenished and checking if there was anything we required. We could not fault this service and felt very much like "home from home". Chris knew of our plans to make a good headway in our travels north but were hampered by road closures due to flooding caused by the cyclone. However, to cut a long story short, we were able to leave Coff's Harbour after 2 days and this was all down to Chris' research, her keeness in wanting to help us and her positivity in mapping out our route, to the next "pit stop". What a lovely lady and so understanding and helpful.
We would definitely recommend this excellent Motor Inn as it has all that the traveller could want for a most comfortable stay. If we ever visit Coff's Harbour again, this is certainly one special Motor Inn we will be looking up to stay. Thank you Chris again for all your help and yes, we made it to Warwick and eventually Cairns! It all had been worth it.
