Novotel Coffs Harbour Pacific Bay Resort
Ranked #24 of 40 Hotels in Coffs Harbour
Reviewed October 10, 2013

This resort has a wonderful restaurant. First you can relax in the bar area and take in the view with a drink or two. Wonder into the restaurant (booking recommended) and be greeted by the Matre' D and shown to your table, followed up by the waitress and wine steward. While you wait for your meal you can take in the view and at night you have the lovely lights around the restaurant and the fountain etc.
The service and the friendliness of the staff is wonderful,so was the meal. We stayed at
Wyndam Terraces and visited the Novotel Restaraunt twice. Would go again.

Room Tip: We did not stay at Novotel

This hotel is in a great part of the world but is stuck in the 80's. For what it chargers it fails to deliver. The restaurant staff are the highlight here but the barstaff are " Barry Crockers " aka shockers.
The resort is good for families with low standards.

When you first drive in, the Novotel is very impressive, and that's where it ended. The rooms were tiny and expensive and the bathrooms were horrible, cracked tiles and so old fashioned. When you pay $200, you expect a little more. On the up side, the grounds were lovely to walk around and the restaurant was nice for dinner, very average for breakfast. The room was 3 star at best. Parking was also a problem, not enough undercover.

We stayed here last month for our tenth anniversary and we were really,really excited about staying here. It really was an epic fail. One could mention a problem in a certain department however all departments had serious flaws. On our first night there we were to have a nice glass of champagne to celebrate at the ( weird ) bar. That ambience was shot when the poor waitress had a screaming match with the Poorly trained American batman. This hotel seems to get a lot of sporting groups so now feels like a conference centre.
The hotel is 5 minutes from shopping centre by car and 2 minutes to Charlie's beach.
As for the anniversary decayed was more appropriate than decade.
