“Comfortable Room, Bit Tight For a Family Room, But Reasonable”
Reviewed April 19, 2010

Comfortable place to spend the night, we were a bit packed in with all the kids in what was billed a family room, but was no real incovenience.

Room was well decorated and had been newly refurbished. Nice little kitchenette area (with microwave and sink) was very handy.

Price for it though was a bit much, but I guess not really the owners' fault. We booked for a set price on an online booking site, but were called a few days later to be told with the extra kids (which we certainly did put in the booking form to get the price) it'd $30 or $40 more. That really puts the accommodation into a different league, and we might have otherwise re-evaluated our options at that higher price.

I'm of the feeling that if you're booking a family room (and this is a general comment) you need to consider that there will be a family in it. Not 2 people plus extra $$s for each additional person...

Kids enjoyed the pool very much. The tennis court and mini golf are featured on the website, but they were both strewn with pine needles and branches and not worth bothering about.

It's in a nice quiet location, about a block off of the beach.

I would stay again, but would clarify the price direct first.

What you see on this Motesls website is not what you get.Don't fall for the name of 'Resort' as it it far from it. The rooms are small and no matter what you book, they are subject to change without notice as did with us. We booked a 3 bedroom room, only to have been given a 1 bedroom room. Why?, we were told that since we only booked the room for 2 people, they decided to only give us one bed. This was despite us deliberately booking a 3 bed room. Not much fun when you are travelling with your sister and her 2 todlers. The to ad insult to injury, they then charged us another $15 to get a fold up bed put in the room.We had to take it as we were stuck in that we may not have been able to find overnight accomadation elsewhere if we left.

Not a pleasant experience.Stay somewhere else if you can. Its not a very nice area anyway as the park at the beach there had homeless drunks brawling in it when we walked past. Don't fall for the mini golf or tennis court either as they were run down and dirty when we saw them :(

This neat and tidy small motel is good value in a good location in a beautiful part of the world. The motel, while small has a good range of features that would meet anyone's needs. The motel looks like it has recently been renovated with new paint, clean carpets and good quality fittings.

The rooms are well proportioned, quiet and comfortable. The room I stayed in had a queen and single bed, small kitchen (sink, fridge, microwave, toaster, kettle, crockery and cutlery) a small dining table with three chairs, flat screen TV, air conditioning and free wifi. Breakfast (hot or continental) can be ordered the evening before and is delivered to your room.


Parking is free and adequate and the pool area looks good. I think there may have even been a BBQ for guests use. Reception has a range of tourist brochures and a selection of beers and wines for purchase. The hosts are very good and are very happy to provide local information and advice and a smooth and trouble free check-in.

Overall my stay here was very pleasant and I'd happily recommend the motel as a great location if you are looking for value, cleanliness, convenient location and nice surroundings and facilities.

After looking at countless amounts of motel's in Coffs Harbour on the internet for an overnight stay on my way to QLD i came across Park Beach Resort that had newerly refurbished deluxe 4.5 star King Rooms. Not only were they great value (same price as all the old dingy 3 star motels in coffs harbour) the room and bathroom is extremely clean and modern with very quick check in/out.
Only minutes walk to Park Beach and very close to Central Coffs Harbour.
This has to be one of the best motel's in Coffs Harbour and i would highly recommend it to anyone, located off the highway there is no noise day or night.
The rooms feature an LCD TV Built into the wall, new kitchenette, very clean bathroom and modern furnishings, not to mention friendly staff.
