Bentleigh Motor Inn

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great location in the middle of town, directly opposite Coffs RSL. Only $100 per night which is reasonable for this motel. Everything was ok. Good bed, reasonable size room, however quite dated and musty smell, but again, only paid $100, you get what you pay for. My only harsh criticism is the traffic noise. If you are a light sleeper, this is not the hotel for you.

Very comfortable rooms, friendly staff,close to hotel , Dan Murphy’s, RSL an in walking distance to all shops an restaurants. There is a breakfast menu , toaster, microwave an fridge. I would definitely come back again.

The staff are very friendly and the location is very central to Coffs CBD. The rooms are adequate. The noise from the passing trucks made sleeping a little difficult (maybe the rooms further from the road would be better).

We booked this hotel "on the road" about an hour before we arrived in Coffs. The staff were very pleasant on check-in. The room had been renovated, in which they have done a pretty good job. My only criticism would be that they failed to replace the carpet. Saying that, the carpet in the room was in good condition, but being of age comes the "of age" smell. not that it was musty or offensive at all. The beds were comfortable & clean & the aircon works well & quiet. All in all a pleasant stay & I would recommend to other customers.

Good location on the pacific highway close to the city centre. This motel accommodated our big group with ease and it was ideal for this. Friendly helpful owners and clean and tidy. Good value as well

Clean, comfortable, with plenty of parking .. and particularly EXCELLENT friendly service. Motel is centrally located and just minutes from the beach, tourist attractions and restaurants. Thank you Val for making us feel so welcome

We have stayed numerous times at the Bentleigh Motel and always find the caretakers to be friendly and accommodating. The rooms are a little dated but always clean, the beds are comfortable. The rooms we have stayed in have aircon plus a fan, flat screen tv, fridge, microwave, toaster and tea / coffee making facilities. They have recently installed complimentary shampoo, conditioner and shower gel dispensers in the bathroom and have hairdryers which are a bit older but they do the job. The compendium has useful information on nearby restaurants and things to do. The Motel is very handy to the C-Ex and Plantation Hotel, and Chinese restaurant which have great lunch and dinner dining options and a short walk to shops and cafes for breakfast and coffee. The Motel does offer a small breakfast menu prepared in-house. The Motel is situated on a main road but traffic noise has never really been that big a problem, yeh sure we’ve heard emergency vehicles every now & then but you can get that anywhere.

First impression was not good - received a phone call to advise that reception was now closed. We were less than 5 minutes away, and had been delayed by heavy storms, but were still an hour earlier than closing time on our booking confirmation. Room number was advised during the short phone call, and key was left in our unlocked room. As we had booked only a couple of days earlier, one would have assumed that information provided on the booking was up to date. Bed was comfortable, bathroom freshly renovated. Toiletries were in dispensers and difficult to dispense, carpet under window and air con was damp and sticky, reception times inaccurate, internet password not provided, no compendium supplied with information of property facilities [ie restaurant times for breakfast, laundry facilities] - this information would have been appreciated, as we were only booked for 1 night. Room had a musty smell. Bathroom window was not accessible [very high], and left open - no security, and rooms opposite on top floor would be able to see in through the clear glass. Location is convenient for restaurants - services club directly opposite, take away, and pubs nearby, we chose a lovely cafe in the mall only a few minutes walk away for breakfast, as no information was provided for motel facilities. Motel is located on a very busy street, and despite double glazed windows, is still very noisy - we lost count of the number of emergency vehicles with sirens that went past throughout the night. We'll choose elsewhere if staying in Coffs Harbour again.

We stayed at this Motel for 2 nights. Room was clean with good comfortable bed. Amenities were good quality and overall room was good value for money. We used the laundry facilities on site which was a great bonus as we had been travelling for 2 weeks. Managers Steve and Sue could not have been more efficient or friendly. We would certainly recommend this Motel as a great place to stay in Coffs Harbour.

We arrived at 2am after our car broke down. Val greeted us with warmth and compassion and gave us a very comfortable room. Much gratitude :) Beds were comfortable and the room was clean. The place is also eco conscious which is important to us.
