“Good Motel. Clean rooms. Central location. Wifi Available”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

Stayed here on our way up to Brisbane. Picked it based on price/location and rating on trip advisor.

Friendly front reception. Rooms are fine. , Mid size, certainly not small. From memory they had Austar or similar.

All the facilities you would expect from a motel. Clean rooms. Clean bathroom. Minimal noise from the highway.

It is walking distance to the main shopping centre of coffs harbour, plenty of restaurants and pubs, clubs etc. About a 2k drive to teh beach and jetty area.

Paid about $117 from memory. Wifi available for about $5. That was the off peak season price. Fine for a stopover trip.

we stayed in the new wing of this hotel and found to be very comfortable with a large room,excellent bathroom with all the perks of a 4 star hotel. Breakfast was good too but the only bad point was that the management promised to send on my fone charger but it never arrived

Room Tip: Insist on the new wing!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2012

Stayed for one night in February 2012. Room was clean and comfortable, and the pool looked very tempting. Restaurant was not open on the night I stayed but the receptionist directed me to the Thai restaurant next door which served a tasty pad thai. Breakfast at the motel was generous and delicious. Motel is located near the main highway so there is unfortunately a bit of noise from trucks passing by, but nothing too bad.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2011

we have been staying at this hotel for about five years and find it to be very consistent. The rooms are always clean and Vanessa the owner is very friendly and helpful. It is well located within an easy walk to restaurants, clubs and pubs etc.

It is a good place to break the Sydney to Qld trip

Room Tip: a room about no 4 is good

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2011 via mobile

The motel is clean ( the only bone being some mold on the sill near the shower) comfortable and centrally located to the main centre of Coffs. I travelled with a mate and we were both pleasantly surprised to find ourselves with two queen beds instead of the traditional single and double. Vanessa and her parter were both pleasant and easy going and I've no issue in recommending the Parkside to anyone staying in Coffs. And as the headline says. Hands down the best shower I've ever had at any motel.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2011

We stayed here 2nd October 2011 in room 21, a stopover on a long drive from Sydney to Brisbane. We booked it online as we were travelling north and it was not expensive (A$90ish).
Quite honestly, the room exceeded expectations. A queen sized bed and a separate single bed, plenty of space and all clean and welcoming. If you just want an economical stopover this place is fine.
There seems to be problems with their own restaurant opening in the evening and you will be told that there are several nearby but the fact is there is only one nearby, a Thai restaurant bang next door. The rest are a fair stroll or drive. The good news is that the Thai restaurant is exceedingly good, food is cheap but wine like everywhere else in Oz is dear.

We had breakfast by room service, good value and we have no hesitation in recommending this motel. Your only problem, if you don't care for asian cuisine, is to find an alternative restaurant less than 20-30 minutes away.

Sorry no pictures of room but some of Coffs Harbour which is delightful.

Room Tip: Room 21 is on the first floor and was fine. We suspect the upper rooms, having views are preferable.
