“Couldn't fault it!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

Great motel in Coffs Harbour
We had a wonderful nights stay in a large room with the most comfortable king-size bed.
Also had a fantastic meal in the WIndmill restaurant and loved the breakfast cafe.
Will definitely stay again.

Stayed here for one night on our return trip from brisbane.

The room was between $90-100. The room was large with a double bed (Queen?) and a single bed. The heating worked well. Bathroom was clean. Their is a small sink in the room so you could make some basic food up. Normal coffee and tea facilities.

Our room was towards the back of the motel and we were not disturbed by any highway noise.

You are about a 1km drive back into the main centre of Coffs, on the highway, where there are ample restaurants, cafes, supermarkets.

You can get breakfast here if you need to ( I think they had a buffet breakfast you could purchase) and they have a restaurant also.

Fine for an overnighter.

My wife and always stop in Coffs on our way back from Sydney to Brisbane. Most often we stay a few days and relax in one of the resorts north of town. This time we were only staying one night, and on the basis of Tripadvisor reviews decided to give the Big Windmill a try.
We have stayed in Coffs a lot of times over the last 20 years and because of the it's position on the highway, we've always avoided the Big Windmill.
We shouldn't have.
We took the advice of other reviewers and booked a room at the back of the complex. I had booked a Queen Deluxe, but we were given what must have been a Family Deluxe (no extra cost !). The room (41) was massive!. 2 queen beds and a single.
The unit was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. With the front windows closed, the traffic noise from the highway became nothing more than distant background noise. The bathroom was also spotlessly clean, with all the expected inclusions. The only negative I would note was that the water saver shower head was a little too water efficient.
We had a great dinner at the attached restaurant. Be warned though - the servings are large. The desserts are a highlight, so leave room. Good prices.
Breakfast, delivered to the room, was reasonably priced too.
In summary, initially I thought this motel might be only an option for an overnight stay, but now I think it would be well worth a longer stay.
This is now top of the list for motels in Coffs for us.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the complex are furthest away from the highway and are much quieter.

We stayed twice at this motel. Once on the way to Qld and the other night on the way back from Qld. They have 24 hour check-in via a vending machine for travelers who arrive after hours. It was very easy to use and very convenient. Rooms were spacious and very clean. Beds very comfortable. Staff were very friendly. We will definitely stop here again...

On the main highway into/out of Coffs but set back from the road so we didn't find noise a problem. The room was very spacious, clean and the bed was comfortable. Every unit has a parking space at the door which is great for getting luggage in or out. can't comment on the restaurant as we didn't eat there but it looked very pleasant and was quite busy.
