Toreador Motel
Ranked #21 of 40 Hotels in Coffs Harbour
Reviewed October 15, 2008

My partner and I were on a trip to Balina and decided to stay at Coffs Harbour as it would be too far to drive all the way to Balina after work.

We made a booking on a website for a room at the Toreador Motel in Coffs Harbour, a couple of days in advance and rang to confirm the booking the next day.

When we turned up on Saturday night after a long drive we found they given the room to someone else. No apologies, instead we found the staff very rude and unhelpful. We were forced to travel the rest of the way to Balina as everywhere else was booked out, it being a long weekend.

We stayed here during the busy Christmas period. The staff were very friendly. Rooms were clean. Room service breakfast was great.

Hotel catered for those just needing a place to stay close to the town centre, value for money, and with friendly service.

I have family in Coffs and would definately consider staying here again on future visits.

We've stayed at this hotel at least once a year for the last 4 years. The owners are great people and very helpful and friendly. The breakfast is good.

The motel is on a side street facing the main highway and only a few minutes from the town centre. There are no shortage of motels on this street.

The rooms are reasonably clean but it is getting a bit outdated and is in need of renovations. When we first started staying here the other motels/hotels around were more expensive so value for the money drove us here. We've found that other hotels around have now lowered their price to match so our reasons for coming back are dwindling.

There is nothing wrong with this hotel but unless the rate drops or others raise theirs, I'm afraid there isn't enough reason to drive us back again.
