Great service and great location. Walking distance to marina and restaurants. Room clean but very basic. Tiniest of bathrooms and lack of bedside tables. Avoid if light sleeper. Can hear Everything going on in the hotel. Parking a very tight squeeze. Pool not fit to swim in.

We were on a road trip back to Sydney and needed a bed for the night and picked the surf beach motel. The rooms aren't too big but good value for what you pay, had a hair dryer and iron (which is exactly what we needed ;) !) Great customer service at reception, the owners are very nice and welcoming.... More

This is a great place for an overnight stay or for a short trip to Coffs Harbour. It is located across the road from the beach, close to a bowling club and bar, a short walk to a shopping mall and a short 5 minute drive to the city centre or the Big Banana. The room I stayed in was... More

Good price, lovely big comfy bed, good sized TV and sofa. Nice to have a fridge, microwave and toaster really makes a difference when eating out is so expensive. Staff were super friendly and nice. Only thing that could be improved is a slight bit of maintenance in the bathroom. Apart from that perfect for me.

The room was clean, the water was hot, the bed was comfortable. My sister and I travel together so we require two separate beds. In motels this is family accommodation. The room was comfortable with a table and chairs. The staff were friendly.

1 night stay, room on first floor at the front, road traffic quite busy. Great location opposite the beach and short stroll to bowls club or other dining choices. Awkward layout in room ie lovely 2 seater lounge provided but tv on wall above it. Basic amenities. Probably not best value for money as it was school holiday period.

Clean and comfy beds, one thing that was annoying was the parking you had to park around the back which meant you had to go around the block to park the car. Also there were no guest parking spaces available. The lighting at the back when you walk up the stairs doesn't turn on unless you're coming up from the... More

Made a very last minute booking and was pleasantly surprised with the experience, would have preferred a ground floor room, but first floor was understandable given the late booking. The room was bright and clean and the king size bed and pillows were most comfortable. Price was quite attractive as well. The location was very convenient as it is across... More
