Reviewed 15 December 2015

This was an overnight stop on the way to the gold coast. Was pleasantly surprised by the drive in and the facilities. The pool is a great area and beautifully structured. The spa is popular and there is a fairly extensive games room. The entire complex speaks style. The bar area is very nice and overlooks the pool and lawns...

Our family of four stayed here for one night because it was our stopover for our long drive to Gold Coast. When driving into the resort, you are greeted by the most beautiful boulevard. The trees lining the street would be at least 100 years old. There is complimentary parking for guests. It's an outdoor car park. After you park,...

If you follow siri's instructions you'll finish up in a deserted sea side park not at the resort. Just stay on the highway north from Coffs till you see the signs. Once we found it the location was beautiful. Spacious comfortable room with an odd two king bed set up that meant there was only room for a coffee table...

I read a few mixed reviews but I still booked for 1 night because it represented great value (3 travelling). I was glad I did, I stayed in the main building and the room was very spacious, clean and fresh. The decor was more than acceptable (1980's decor). Nice hot shower and decent water flow. Bed comfortable (and I'm fussy)....

Great for a short stay. Enjoyed the buffet breakfast each morning, and very impressed that it ran until 10am. Also enjoyed happy hour each afternoon! Pool area is pleasant but looking a bit tired.

I agree with what has been written here in reply. The carpark is open and unsecured but is well off the road. We had no issues other than difficulty getting a spot late at night when the hotel is full or near full. We saw tradesmen's utes with tools in the back and cars with trailers and bikes on car bike racks left there overnight. I'd be surprised if there was any real issues.

I stayed in a hotel room and we were supplied with pool towels in our room, in addition to bath towels. The towels will be replaced upon request, free of charge.
