Room was not what we booked - old, dated furniture that was covered in dust and stains in what was supposed to be a renovated "superior" room. We were given a tired room underneath a flight of stairs with a view of a skip bin. When we requested our room to be changed or cleaned, we were verbally abused by...

Stayed for 5 nights recently and found it affordable and comfortable. The staff were great, rooms were a good size and so was the bathroom. Restaurant served lovely food. Although on the highway Sanctuary is set up off the road so road noise not too bad. Main noise came from unthinking guests coming and going at all hours and crashing...

I booked and paid for my stay at this resort, only to find when I asked for an exchange of times to arrive they would not accommodate me. If this Motor Inn professes to offer a service call best practice, please be aware that the Sanctuary Retreat does not offer considerate or professional exchange when you are making your booking.

Great for a stop over, beds were clean, shower was fine. No problem with the free wifi. We had a big room which was good, motel is a little tired but we found everything good. Plenty of parking. We would stay again.

Rang to ask about wifi, At 11pm.. "Sorry it shuts off and I can't help you" right in the middle of a Conference call to Jakarta. Wine bottles, boxes and linen laying in the car park... I've never experienced such rude and judgmental people Do yourself a favour and stay somewhere else

Service was good, bed was comfy and the room was modern and clean. Parking is great if you have a caravan/trailor as there is space around the back. Rooms are fairly soundproof, didnt hear much at all and it was peak holiday season. Only stayed one night but wanted more! Would recommend to anyone and would definitelt stay again on...

This is the second time we have stayed here. We stayed in Room 2 each time, the second time was requested. We found the room very roomy and comfortable. Yes there is a problem with an ill fitting shower door but the spotless and very spacious room and very comfortable king bed certainly made up for it. We will return...

The room and amenities were excellent. A very good dining experience but the breakfast buffet was quite ordinary. We would recommend this motel to travellers passing through or looking for a holiday in Coffs.
