Ellenborough, Australia
Reviewed 27 August 2015

The staff are friendly and helpful with a no fuss book in. The room I stayed in was comfortable and quiet, it faced the surf (room 232 - oddly enough this is the ground floor or reception level) and was surprisingly quiet with the sliding doors closed and better yet no traffic noise. It is actually a reasonable walk to...

The resort is so out dated and grotty. The rooms were very old and dated. There was thick dust all around the edges and mold in the shower and on the screen is so bad you can't see through it. The bed was hard and uncomfortable. We were staying for 3 nights. When we got there I complained about the...

We stayed in an ocean view room on level 4 three days ago. The room was spacious and the bed very comfortable. The only let down was the room was freezing ( even with the heating on ) In the light of the morning the reason very evident ...the large range slider doors don't meet evenly with the large gap...

Reviewed 21 August 2015

Coffs Harbour is full of resorts and motels, and most of them are quite run down and, quite frankly, don't meet expectations. Opal Cove is, suprisingly, quite "fresh", with rooms recently upgraded, and facilities in good repair. It does, however, feel like its a bit of an "80's" resort, in that the carpets look like they have escaped from a...

We only had one night here and the location is perfect. The hotel is.a little dated in decor and atmosphere. The gym is located in a get spot but the equipment should be thrown out.

We booked & paid for the Ocean view rooms and we were given the room with no view. I raised my concern with the front desk staff on the first day and the day after and we have no response from the staff, very dissapointed as they don't seem to care. I will not recomend this hotel to anyone.

Stayed only one night while driving north from Sydney. Although the weather was a bit rainy the beach was beautiful and only a minutes walk away from the hotel.

Only stayed one night for a conference. Staff were friendly and helpful; room was nicely set out but bathroom a little tired. Huge TV in room, loved the separate lounge area and the bench height divider between that and the bed. Provided lots of space to charge phone and mobile devices. Function menu for dinner was great.

Opal Cove has been there for quite a few years, and it's starting to show. However, it remains a well-managed, clean and well staffed hotel on the Coffs Coast, with useful facilities. The beach across the lawn is not patrolled, but appears to be reasonably safe. The mini golf course is still undergoing renovation. There is a gym, a kids...
