Bombora Resort Motel
Ranked #11 of 12 Hotels in Coolangatta
Reviewed May 15, 2012

We took this Motel because of their very reasonable price, and our expectations were not high, but we were pleasantly surprised.
The Motel is situated only a short walk from restaurants, shops and the beach, a very quiet location adjacent to a lovely park.
The Motel also offers breakfast, but is fully self contained, with nice rooms, good bathroom and balcony with views of the park and the motel's swimming pool..
We booked 2 nights and got extra discount, but the rooms are still serviced daily.
Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: the upstairs rooms are more private and have better views

Resort? By the Ocean? Drove all over Coolangatta looking for it, as I thought it would be within walking distance of a beach......wrong. Very ordinary old units, internal brick walls and dated furnishings. But Australia is in a time warp when it comes to anything under $120 per night. Actually expected a Dimboola type wedding to be in full swing in the dining room. However, it was clean, although the mattresses leave a bit to be desired and the pillows replaced. Just too far from anything if you do not have a car.

Room Tip: Think they are all the same, including the yellow feature walls

We arrived believing the photos they had posted on the internet were where we were going to be staying..what a joke! It was like a prison. We thought the taxi had the wrong address, we questioned him several times.There were 3 of us, they didn't know if there was a couple or not. There were 3 single beds in a single room. We looked for another door expecting another room but...Ohh no not to be. Then...the bathroom! You could hardly turn around. We had to brush our teeth in the kitchen sink yuk!!! Wasn't impressed...No microwave or any kitchen utensils...hopeless !!!

Will Not Be Coming Back Nor Will Our Friends Nor Will Their Friends...

Room Tip: Don't Bother...Find Elsewhere!!!!!

Come into town late and was able to get cheap accommodation. Staff were super friendly and added to the stay. Loved the location as it enabled us to get away from the main strip when needed. Would recommend to anyone as it was great value.

For a budget hotel accommodation could not find better.
Clean rooms, great staff, perfect location in town yet very quiet overlooking the park
We walked into Coolangatta in minutes, the airport was just 5 minutes away in taxi.
Would recommend to any friends or family and would certainly come back

Room Tip: All rooms seem to have a park view very light & airy

Amazing Trip!!! We had the pleasure of meeting the amazing staff and staying in an amazing room. Had a beautiful view of the pool, grounds and the park. We were on a one night trip for a special occasion and this lovely hotel was very conveniently located walking distance from the restaurant we were attending and everything else you could amagin needing on a trip. Every enquiry/need was met with a "yes we can do that for you" and a SMILE :) Our aircon was even turned on before we arrived to cool our room. The room was lovely and clean and the bed was amazingly comfortable. Anything we could have needed was included in the room and facilities. Pool was beautiful and the restaurant made an Amazing breakfast, we even got to have a chat and laugh with the chefs. We will definately return as we usually stay in a holiday park but Bombora Resort is much cheaper, better value for money, much larger, cleaner and much much nicer. Highly recomended!!!!
