“Great stay in Coffs, no need to leave the resort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

This resort has it all - especially for families.
The rooms are neat and tidy, the pool is family friendly and there's tennis, walks, a patrolled beach, conference facilities and a great restaurant on site.
Undercover parking is a bit limited and getting luggage to your room can be tricky - I saw no concierge service.
The onsite Spa offered lovely service and a great hot stone massage and a flotation tank. I also stayed here around 10 years ago and it's probably time for a bit of a refurb in areas.
The only other issue is the dodgy phone reception in the resort area causing multiple drop-outs and call fails.

The best place to stay in Coffs. Traveling from south to north just 250 m to your left from Big Bananna. So much to do there. Children love circus school, sagways, jumping castle, four different pools, kids club and beach. We'll definetly come back one day soon.

The location good for families using as a resort - longer stay, however, we thought that the rooms were a bit tired and could do with updating, more a resort hotel than overnight stay., which was what we were using it for, in other words, we probably should have just stayed in town at one of the other places.

This resort is in a nice location, close to Coffs Harbour, walking distance to an unpatrolled beach with some coastal walkways available. The pools were well layed out with something for everyone, the journey after check in could have been better explained as to how to get stuff to your room, we had a car with a bike on the roof and pod that couldn't use the underground car park, this was a hastle with 2 kids. Overall a nice place to stay.

expecting more modern room for a novotel standard. The room feel like old place with old pilow and quilt. In a place like coff's harbour where you most likely to spend your day relax, the quality of the bedroom is really important.
however, their charlie's restaurant is avery nice place for breakie and dining.
parking space is very limited, i was forced to park outsudie the building

Nice hotel but getting a little tired, rooms could do with a bit of a refresh.
Staff in the restaurant were hit and miss - an older lady was quite well experienced and friendly, but a young guy obviously had very little training at A la Carte service.
Nice for Coffs Harbour though!
