Reviewed July 20, 2013

I'm always apprehensive when booking motels. I could not have been happier with my choice for this one. We had a two bedroom suite which was well appointed and comfortable. It would have to have been one of the cleanest rooms I have ever stayed in! They even had decent tea and coffee.

I found the staff friendly and helpful with any request we had. The harbour and marina location was superb for us, with great cafes, restaurants and a bottlo literally a stones throw away.

The parking is a little tight for large vehicles, however there is plenty of space on the street outside. I would not hesitate to recommend this motel, it's almost unbelievable value for the money. I would not be tempted to stay elsewhere in Coffs.

On our way to Qld spent one night at the Motel. What a fantastic room and friendly staff. Everything was clean clean clean. Wish I could have said the same once we arrived in Qld. There was nothing I could say negative about the room. Great for a family and great location to places to eat.
Thanks again to the great staff.

This is in a great location close to beach and a lot of eating places near by including a club across the road. Very clean and well maintained. Staff are extremlely friendly and very helpful.
As you are off the main road you do not hear the highway traffic but are only around the corner from the main road and very centrally located to all tourist spots

Room Tip: I was in the family room overlooking the main Harbour Drive. Was very good the kids had a tv as did...

This motel is great for the price and a real gem in Coffs. We had to come down from the Gold Coast for the night and were very impressed with the clean and neat layout the comfortable bed and general layout of the room.

Room Tip: The staff are very helpful in meeting your needs

We stayed here last night for a quick visit. I cannot express how clean and fresh the rooms are. Thank you for all the effort your cleaning staff go to. I have paid much more for rooms in hotels to be met with dirty, grimy rooms. You should be very proud of the freshness and cleanliness. The only negative I had was the noise from across the road made it hard to sleep as did the water noise from the pipes.
Thank you.

Have stayed at many motels and what impressed us was how clean/spotless the rooms were. Honestly cannot ever remember walking into a room and going wow this is so fresh & clean. Well aired very fresh comfortable beds. Great location, enjoyed the walk to the Yacht Club for tea which was lovely. Will be back and recommend to friends. First time have written a review they definitely deserve the praise.

Stayed here when travelling from Sydney to Brisbane. Was really surprised at the room layout & neatiness - very spacious. Much better that one of the inner city hotels in Sydney we stayed. The room booked was given to another with the same surname but we ended up on the bottom floor after the owner called & apolgised, which was greatly appreciated & not at all inconvenient. Breakfast was included - a small buffet of fruit with a hot breakfast cooked just the way you like it.

We appreciate your posting a review and staying with us on your way to Brisbane. Coffs Harbour has always been a popular stop over on the Sydney to Brisbane route. Being located away from the highway and across the road from numerous restaurants gives travellers the essentials they need, a good sleep and something good to eat! Coffs Harbour also has lots to do and see so is a great holiday destination in itself. Hope we see you on your return trip.
