A motel off the Pacific Coast Highway in Coffs Harbour, easy access from the highway, grocery (Woolworth's on left) and shopping (Target, etc) on the main drag as you come off the highway. We stayed there on Boxing day evening and had no problems, clear, good air conditioning, had a few breakfast items available for you in the room. Happy... More

Clean rooms with an excellent location close to the beach. The owners were very friendly. We only stayed a short while, but would definitely stay there again and probably for longer. The room we got comfortably catered for a family of five.

Really friendly staff, brilliantly located by the beach and opposite a great value bar/restaurant (Barramundi, salad and fries for under $10 on a Monday night). Felt genuinely welcome. Had a great time all round. Would recommend it to anyone.

Stayed overnight here. The room was a family room at the end of the row of rooms. The room was good for the price.There was a bed in the lounge/kitchen and a separate bedroom for the children with their own television. The shower was great, kitchen was adequate and even room for a dining table. Handy location as well. Two... More

Security was a bit dodgy as a large sign in the room made it abundantly clear that they had no responsibility for anything stolen even though we were on the ground floor and couldn't close the bathroom window.
