Fantastic hosts - nothing was to much trouble, even including a very late checkout on my final day. Rooms are basic, but clean and well-maintained. Everything works, lots of thoughtful touches, and VERY comfortable bed. It's reasonably priced, but good value for what you pay. A lot of the accommodation in Coffs is right on Pacific Hwy, but no complaints... More

Convenient when traveling North but you have to double back when traveling South. Older style establishment. A bit tired but the room rate reflects this. On site parking adjacent to room but a bit tight. Non smoking rooms but smoking allowed outside rooms and the smell is shared by all. Office staff (owner) very friendly and accommodating.

We were concerned by poor reviews prior to our stay. However greeted warmly, room, clean, fresh and comfortable, excellent for an overnight stay, no problem with traffic noise from the highway, would not have even noticed it if I had not read complaints prior to our stay. Calm, restful night on comfortable bed, really hot water in the shower, excellent... More

We were disappointed with the size and quality of our twin room. The photo that was shown on Booking.com was one that had been renovated, whereas our room was old and dingey. The room was not cleaned properly and the noise from the highway (trucks during the night) made it hard to get a good nights sleep. We stayed for... More

I'm glad we only stayed for 1 night, the double bed was like a slab of concrete and the single bed was like a cloud, but my mum had the single bed, its very small and tight. Not cleaned very well and we had to tape our toilet seat up as it had a crack in it and pinched my... More
