Pool review highlights
The last review was the misleading wording of the room type ie Beachside but there isn’t a view of the beach .

The last review was the misleading wording of the room type ie Beachside but there isn’t a view of the beach . To continue : the pools were closed for a majority of the two days that we were there even though they were fully booked with the Elton John concerts in Coffs Harbour . The WIFI was down for part of our two two days and the rest of the time it was a poor signal . Overall it was a memorable trip but for the wrong reasons . The saving grace was Drew , the restaurant manager . He couldn’t do enough for you . It’s a pity that the building didn’t reflect the positivity that Drew did . Very poor

On our road trip to Brisbane we stayed overnight at this resort, the last time we stayed here was 28 years ago. 28 years on and this place needs some serious tender loving care. Air conditioning in the foyer, restaurant and other common areas not working correctly. Our room 115 , as I reported to the desk , had a non compliant hinge fitted to the fire rated entry door of the room that obstructed the doors closure without assistance.
Also it’s fire rating.
Bathroom sink had no drainage grate fitted to waste line, ( watch your jewellery or small items dropping into drain), bathroom tiles old and yukky.
Externally most of the pool furniture collapsed when sat upon .The foyer fountain needs a proper cleaning out, it was green with algae .This venue advertises as a resort and you pay a price for a resort room as well,I rate it around a 3 star motel.
I do hope someone there takes note of my words ,perhaps even do a room by room inspection and grounds create a list and bring it back to its glory days.

The resort facilities were excellent Lovely outdoors and pool nice bar and restaurant Service was great but the room was in need of TLC. The basin was cracked the bath tub had chips in the enamel. The cupboard door was not easy to open as it had come loose from the hinge. Such a shame as the room was clean and the stay was great otherwise. I was also surprised that they required a security deposit of $100 when there was nothing left to damage in the room as it was already done

Whatever you do DO NOT STAY in a resort room. Stayed one night as Coffs is halfway to where I was going. I know you get what you pay for but I’m actually disgusted. The second we entered the room I started searching for other accomodation in the area but it was late so we sucked it up and dealt with it. It was 1970s old if not older was musty and smelt bad. Made you feel itchy and dirty from just being in there. Beds not comfortable at all the fridge barely worked. The bathroom is disgusting rust everywhere including the bathtub which at first I thought was a squished cockroach. To try and have a shower with the curtain flooded the bathroom, towels didn’t even match. Air conditioner also didn’t work was so happy to wake up early and get out of there. We did do a walk around the “resort” the facilities are why they are still in business games room was amazing the pool was great breakfast looked and smelt amazing. If the owners stopped putting money in there pockets and starting forking some out this place could be 10/10 but the resort rooms destroy it. My parents have stayed here twice giving it a chance thinking they may of just have gotten a dodgy room first time round but they said it was the same second time. So it saddens me to say but I definitely DO NOT recommend and will not be returning.

We stayed for one night to break up the returning drive from the Gold Coast.
Check in went very smoothly and the room was perfect for what we needed.
My two children absolutely loved the large pool and spent hours on the water slide.
We enjoyed the quiet location of the resort but still found it very close to all the main attractions of Coffs Harbour.
We were very impressed with the restaurant prices and we all enjoyed a lovely dinner and a few drinks.
I would definitely recommend this resort for a short stay and we would definitely return.
