Let me list the pro (yep, there's only one) & cons of staying at this property: PRO: - close to the beach CONS: - rooms and fixtures are old and in the one we stayed, in disrepair, with water damage on the sink - there may be good remarks here, but be careful of the manager Debbie, she is Coffs...

Our stay was quite pleasant. We found the rooms to be clean and smelling fresh. The DVD cable had been acquired by the last occupant. Shannon (the voice on the phone) was very pleasant and helpful. There was some ants trying to take up residency in the bathroom whilst we were there, but a couple of shots of Raid did... More

The 2 bedroom unit we had was old and dated. Was disappointed when we opened the room but for a one night stay we stayed with it. No bedside clock radios, no tea or coffee supplies, no maps or local folder info. Definitely stayed in better accommodation.

I was expecting the apartments to be old and out dated, but I wasn't expecting them to be dirty as well. Our room was filthy: the carpet was old and threadbare, not to mention needing a good vacuum, the bathroom mirror was filthy, the oven and cooktop wasn't working so we had to throw away food as we couldn't cook...

We stayed at Adrift about 15 years ago and always found it good value, clean with cheerful 'live on' site managers. This time however was a different story. There was no one at reception when we arrived at 6pm, thank god we had a phone between us. We finally collected our keys and went to our room only to be... More

Stains on Carpet, drapes dirty. Very dusty bedroom headboard and skirting boards. Bed was comfortable and unit quiet. Surroundings and amenities need a revamp. No one on site if a problem arises. Wifi excellent.

We stayed 3 nights at Adrift and found it clean, tidy, and comfortable. Staff are amazing. Friendly and willing to assist. We were however, disappointed with the lack of office/reception hours. The apartments would do better to have staff available more than 3hrs per day, and the water kept backing up in our vanity in the bathroom. Having said that,... More

Had a great time. Units were neat and tidy and very comfortable beds (which is great). Excellent value for money and Maryanne was a gem - helpful and friendly. Would definitely stay there again - close to everything and easy walk to the beach.
