The Coachman Motor Inn
Ranked #5 of 9 Hotels in The Entrance
Reviewed February 24, 2012

I stayed over a week at this terrific inn. The owners exert exactly the right proportions of presence, caregiving and hands-off. I saw a couple of their other rooms, which were outfitted just as nicely as mine, but I preferred the quieter and shaded side of the property, from which I saw several species of parrot and heard kuckaburras. The inn is perfectly situated near Tuggerah Lake and the beach, even for a walk downtown. Ric and Hitomi have precisely the right touch and disposition for this business, and their place is kept so neat, clean and quaint (Santa gnome in the garden), and they score highest marks for their friendliness. Not only can I not recommend it highly enough, but it's the only place I'll consider staying when (notice I didn't say "if") I return. Go there!

Unfortunately was only able to stay for one night! The owners are so very friendly and helpful. The room was clean, spacious and comfortable. The motel is less than a block to the lake and Jetty, and a two minute drive to The Entrance.
Very small, which makes it more like staying at a friend's place, rather than at a motel.
Can't wait to go back.

We have just returned from a 3 night mid-week break at The Coachman & found it to be great.

Our room was small, but very comfortable, tastefully decorated and with nice quality linen & towels. It was spotlessly clean.

There is a kitchenette with a 4 burner cook top & more than enough pots, pans & utensils to cook a simple meal.

Free WiFi was a bonus, also Foxtel IQ with many channels.

Our accommodation package included a cheese & wine hamper. The cheeses are locally produced & were delicious!

The Coachman is a short walk uphill to Diggers (RSL club), and downhill to the lake.

The owners are very pleasant & helpful, & obviously take great care in the place.

We will definitely return to The Coachman & I would not hesitate to recommend it for a quiet couples break.

Thank you

We are constantly trying to improve our services with out being too "in your face all the time"
One of these ways is our couples getaway, Our cheese and wine package is sourced form a fantastic local cheese factory and the vineyard that supplies our wine is only 55 minutes drive from the motel, we hope this helps to reduce our carbon footprint and provides great extra bonuses when guests choose to stay with us.
Please do come again

We stayed overnight at this hotel, mainly due to other Trip Advisor reviews and also it is off the main road and nice and quiet. Owners were friendly and helpful. We had a small room with a comfortable, firm bed - could have paid more if we wanted a larger room - which was nice and homey looking with good lighting by the bed and overhead. Some hotels are extremely dim at night so this was great. Bathroom was small too but everything was neat and clean and there was a small balcony you could sit out on. There is a pool out the front.

You can order breakfast if you want which was extremely good value - $5 per person for fruit, tea or coffee, toast, juice and cereal. It's delivered the night before, which really suited us, and there is a kettle and toaster in the room, so you can eat when you want. We walked along the nearby lake path, it's about 20 mins walk into town for shops and restaurants, though there are a couple of places closer.

Clean, quiet and comfortable. Lovely soft sheets on the very comfortable bed. No traffic to wake you. The first place we've stayed in that advertised Foxtel, and actually had lots and lots of channels to choose from, rather than 4 or 5. Very impressed with their efforts at recycling and solar power. Reasonable tariffs too.
