Stayed here for two nights to see a bit of Coffs on the way back to Sydney. Was a good 5-8 minute drive outside of Coffs hear (Jetty area). Room walls were thin. We got woken by some loud proceedings on both sides of us. Water pressure and temperature not the greatest either. Old and noisy air conditioning unit. However,...

Had just a short stay here for 2 nights. It isn't in "inner" Coffs Harbour, but it was not too long a drive to get to the main attractions. It is an older resort, but they have put some effort in to updating the rooms and we had no big complaints. Everything was nice and clean and we enjoyed our...

Website cheerfully announces a recent refurbishment and a 4 diamond rating. Not even close. This is not a resort. It's a motel. And if you don't get a refurbished room welcome back to the 60's. Room was very dated. The kitchenette was awful to the point we would not cook in it. It wasn't clean and the stove looked like...

Big rooms. Fairly old but very functional. Big TV and free wifi. We were on the upper floor so could be a problem with lots of luggage or elderly. Road noise is an issue even though it is back off the road a bit. There are far better places for a holiday but if you just need an overnight stay...

The restaurant didn't have much choice for non-flesh eaters. The waitress suggested the tofu meal & said you'll love it. I didn't even like it. It's extremely rare for me to leave food on a plate but the tofu was so rubbery & hard. The breakfast had little for anyone who was avoiding products of animal exploitation. There was no...

We stayed at this hotel after flying up from Melbourne(via Sydney). Because we arrived late at the airport, it was too late to pick up a hire car, so we had to catch a taxi to the hotel. This left us a little isolated in terms of the location. A key was left for our late arrival, so the "check-in"...

Very average rooms are not what you see on the web towels are so thin you need two sheet had holes, lolly wrapper behind chest of drawers. I guess all I can say is you get what you pay for. At least on plus was it was reasonably clean

We booked this place based on the photos. What a joke. The room we were given was disgusting. Dirty stains on the lounge, dead insects in the pillows, no PowerPoint in the bathroom, dingy, depressing, daggy and disappointing. They should be reported to the Department of Fair Trading for false advertising because our room looked like something out of a...

Staying at this location on a whim, we were pleasantly surprised by the large, comfortable accommodation and range of facilities. We dined at the restaurant for dinner. The food was delicious, serving portions were very large (recommend sharing!) and the service was lovely.
