“Perfectly Fine Motel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 November 2011

We stayed here 2nd October 2011 in room 21, a stopover on a long drive from Sydney to Brisbane. We booked it online as we were travelling north and it was not expensive (A$90ish).
Quite honestly, the room exceeded expectations. A queen sized bed and a separate single bed, plenty of space and all clean and welcoming. If you just want an economical stopover this place is fine.
There seems to be problems with their own restaurant opening in the evening and you will be told that there are several nearby but the fact is there is only one nearby, a Thai restaurant bang next door. The rest are a fair stroll or drive. The good news is that the Thai restaurant is exceedingly good, food is cheap but wine like everywhere else in Oz is dear.

We had breakfast by room service, good value and we have no hesitation in recommending this motel. Your only problem, if you don't care for asian cuisine, is to find an alternative restaurant less than 20-30 minutes away.

Sorry no pictures of room but some of Coffs Harbour which is delightful.

Room Tip: Room 21 is on the first floor and was fine. We suspect the upper rooms, having views are preferable.

Great little motel, restaurant on site, Thai next door or a quick stroll to the pub down the road. Friendly and helpful reception staff. Basic rooms, flat screen TV, modern bathroom. Lovely and clean. AAA+

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2010

We stopped here during a drive up the coast. It was a lot less expensive than the hotels next door to it and we couldn't justify the extra money for such a quick stay. The staff were very nice and gave us a nice room that was very quiet. Unfortunately the restaurant was closed, but it is next to a Thai restaurant with delicious food.

The shower at this hotel was wonderful- the best water pressure I found in Australia.

The only suggestion I have is they should offer wifi for free. they charge $5, why not just include it in the room like other places do?

Rooms are shabby and basic. The TV didn't work, in fact it wasn't the TV it was the 3 plug sockets that we tried behind the TV which didn't work. We tried to use the phone and had to check with reception who turned our phone on so we could make a call. We paid 77 AUS Dollars so it was cheap and I guess you pay for what you get, but I would gladly have paid an extra 30 for somewhere half decent. In the morning we got woken up at 6.30 by the hundreds of screeching birds in the nearby trees. Was only here one night and left as soon as could the next morning.
