I picked this motel after reading about it in Trip Advisor. I agree with the other good reviews. I phoned a week before to book and arrived around 2.pm. The owners are very friendly and helpful. It is close to the highway but I didn't notice any traffic noise. It is a short walk to the centre of town and... More

This motel never fails in it's quality, as usualJim and Georgie are a delight and very helpful. The motel is improved by the addition of a pool. Once again, well done the Bells. See you on our next trip.

We stayed overnight in Coffs Harbour on our way back to queensland from Sydney after a family emergency. The lady who checked us in (Lea) was amazingly understanding and helpful. She really made such tragic circumstances just that little bit easier to deal with. The room was great value for money, clean and the beds were extremely comfortable. I wouldn't... More

What a fantastic place to stay, value for money. The host is absolutely lovely and makes you feel very welcome. This would have to be the cleanest room I have ever stayed in. The rooms are compact but big enough for what we needed. I thought being on the highway it would be noisy and was very surprised that it... More

I would highly recommend this motel. Your hosts go out of their way to help you, it is inexpensive, clean, has free wifi and everything you need in a motel (including hair dryer, iron and microwave). If you stay on tbe highway you will of course hear traffic, but it is certainly not noisy. I had a very positive experience... More

A spotlessly clean establishment, close to all amenities,easily reachable whether traveling north or south on the Pacific Highway and Georgie, the hostess, very friendly and helpful. Comfortable beds and although just off the Highway, quite quiet. We used this motel on our way to Sydney and our return home. This is highly recommended.

Well placed on the Pacific Highway if you are passing through and need somewhere inexpensive to stay. You can park right in front of your room and there is a small pool although being in the car park area it doesnt get used much. The staff are always friendly and the rooms are well looked after and good value. Coast... More
