We stayed here for 4 nights. The 1 bedroom suite was roomy and comfortable. I know many have said the rooms are run down and ours was what I would consider somewhat outdated. But it was clean and in reasonably good shape. The stove controls were worn off so it was difficult to know what you were doing. They don't... More

Rooms really need refurbishing, particularly considering the prices. Wi-fi is only free in the main building, otherwise it's $28 a day. The beds were very uncomfortable, sagging badly. Close-in parking is quite limited. All in all, it acts and is priced like a 5-star property, but they're not putting the money back into it and it shows.

We had been away for about 3 weeks in a camper trailer. For my wife's birthday I decided she should have a night off from living in the camper trailer.

For the age of the property it is maintained to a reasonable standard and was a comfortable place to stay for a week. Easy access to Coffs but quietly out of the way from any traffic noise. The access via two doors is understandable and clearly the architect thought it a great idea. Charlie's restaurant is worthy of its own... More

We actually stayed at 'Pacific Bay Terraces' which are located within the resort but are privately owned and rented out. This was a last minute booking and as accommodation in Coffs that night was difficult I grabbed the first room I could.
