Recent guest reviews

Great Motel. Arrived to a nice looking motel with plenty of parking. Reception and staff pleasant and friendly ( helped us out a lot with our washing) Nice family room that was clean and tidy. Swimming pool was lovely again clean and tidy. Great Motel very happy.

Clean. tidy, comfortable room that is great value for money. Perfect for a stopover, but I also always stay here for work trips of a few days. The two rooms were perfect for our family of 4 and being off the highway it is nice and quiet. On our last trip the hosts called us straight away when we had left a beloved teddy bear behind (which saved us what would have been a lot of tears later in the trip!). Thank you!!

The staff were lovely and went above and beyond to make our stay wonderful, the room was excellent and they helped by giving us a shower chair for my special needs son and came and made up the fold out couch for my grand daughter, The management and staff were wonderful. The place was nice and quiet.

A quick overnight stay for 4 adults prompted us to book this accommodation as it has family rooms at a reasonable price. Check in was quick with welcoming and friendly staff. Being Easter it was pretty busy, but there was plenty of staff on hand and nothing was a problem. Although the whole motel is still pretty much the original build, style and fittings and yes it is rather dated and the rooms were a bit small, everything was wonderfully clean and fresh. The linen was of good quality, carpets were not worn, basic tea and coffee making, a fridge, microwave, toaster and on request we were provided with crockery and cutlery to prepare our own in room breakfast. Lots of family groups were there as this hotel obviously provides good value for money and a clean, comfy stay in Coffs. It's 2 minutes drive from the Highway and Park Beach Plaza, 2 minutes to the beach and 5 minutes to The Jetty and lots of other attractions. Night time was quiet with the window open and a good breeze flowing through. No complaints from our stay.

We were only staying in Coffs Harbour for one night and wanted a room away from the main road. Royal Palms was quiet, clean and the bed was comfortable. The room was small but adequate for our short stay. It was located within walking distance of convenience shops and clubs and restaurants. A microwave was provide for heating purposes only not for cooking meals. The wifi was good.

We stayed here for one night recently while driving from Brisbane to Sydney. We had a two bedroom unit which served our needs nicely. It’s not a five star establishment but it did the trick for us. They have a pool there and BBQ facilities which were being used when we passed at one stage. The beds were comfortable, a queen sized bed in the main room and two singles in the second room. A kettle, toaster, microwave and cups were also provided, along with sachets of tea, coffee and sugar. If you plan on having cereal for breakfast, bring bowls and spoons, along with the cereal, obviously. (A previous reviewer helped me out in this regard). I was also offered a little bottle of milk at the Reception Area for tea/coffee, which I appreciated. I also think there was a hair-dryer there, and an ironing board and iron in the wardrobe. Parking was available on the premises, as was good free WiFi . I only met the staff in Reception but the lady there was very pleasant. They do offer a breakfast service which is handy to know if you were interested. We didn’t use it so can’t comment on that otherwise. There is a shopping centre (with Woolworths and Aldi supermarkets) within approximately 10 minutes walk of the property. There are restaurants within walking distance. All in all, it was comfortable, it represented value for money, the place is well run and we were happy with our stay there.

We normally stay at the more expensive places so was a little worried about this place.... But it happened to be by far the best place we have stayed the service was the best we had ever received although the rooms aren’t ‘brand new’ the mattress felt like sleeping on a cloud was beautiful and air con worked kept the room to the perfect temperature the rooms were spotless. The breakfast we ordered one morning was unreal shame we only ordered it one morning not both mornings. We will definitely be back and highly recommend this motel!

Well located and priced. Nice clean room. Very tight parking spaces (actually hard to access the pool). Accommodating staff at reception. We had dinner in our room and they provided us with cutlery and plates. No problem in recommending this place.

We stayed for 4 nights recently and were overall very pleased. It is an older 70s/80s style motel but clean & very well maintained. Staff were exceptional and the price reflected the older décor. It is in a good location being off the highway but approx. 400m from a major shopping centre (and food outlets) and approx. 500m from the beach (all 'walkable'). Breakfasts were very good and well priced. Highly recommended. Only negative comment was that the car parking was very narrow (for a large vehicle) although there was sufficient parking available and also parking available on the street (for oversized vehicles.

Friendly and helpful staff. Lovely deep pool, very reasonable tariffs. Central location short walk to the beach & major shopping centre.Very clean rooms but comfortable. My only comment for improvement would be that the aircons need to be not so noisy and to have bowls for breakfast in the tea/coffee provisions. Overall a pleasant stay.
