Gold Coast Hinterland, Australia
Reviewed yesterday NEWvia mobile

Came down from the Gold Coast for a game of footy, booked two nights accom on the internet. Despite requesting a "sea view" room we were given a room overlooking the car park. Not a good start. I spoke with reception who, after some time, agreed to move us to a "sea view" room. I've stayed here before, a few...

My wife and I booked into the Opal Cove resort on the 2nd February 2017. I should have realised this was not a four start hotel when we approached reception and the staff member asked "What can I do for you mate" and then continued to call me mate through the whole process. I would hate to call myself a...

Stayed here for a week and had a fantastic time. We hound it hard to leave the premises to enjoy our holiday because it had everything that we wanted. Had its own beach which the kids got to swim and play in the sand. The swimming pool was enormous, with plenty of chairs and banana lounges to laze around. It...

Best hotel for spending a day or two in coffs harbour or woolgoolga region. Needs renovations but still the best compared to other hotels. Very nice restaurant and good pool area. Bathroom is pretty old and sometimes you see small bugs but the best option

Perfect location with stunning morning sunrises, very memorable. Staff was very polite, caring, willing to provide assistance and always smiling. Facility is tired and more worn than expected - room couch sagged significantly, bed mattress was too soft from being worn. And the room air conditioning couldn't keep up with cooling the spacious rooms until the middle of the night.

Do yourself a solid, stay in a water facing room. If not a courtyard room on the resort side, you'll thank me later. I've stayed here about ten times in the past. Opal Cove has it worked out.
