Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Good hotel and delivers on what is expected. Check in was smooth, and pretty straightforward. I found I received far too many messages from the hotel. They offer an offsite gym which is quite nice . The bar is nice. The room was pretty basic, but the aircon worked pretty well. Bathroom was a bit outdated

Hotel's Favourite
Had a medical appointment in Coffs that necessitated an over night stay and we booked a room at Charlesworth Bay Beach Resort. Lea from reception got in touch with us to over an upgrade for a very reasonable amount which we accepted. The two ladies in reception were excellent and offered personalised service to ensure you enjoyed your stay no matter how brief. The room we had was great with a view of the lakes and golf course and was well appointed with all the things we needed. Just a few things like salt and pepper, cooking oil and kitchen paper would have been helpful - over wise all good. We'll stay again and recommend it highly but get in touch and go for the upgrade!

Wow not sure how to start - this definitely wasn’t a hotel experience more like an upgraded motel with a hotel price tag. the positives were that there was aircon and that the place was quiet my toddler slept beautifully my 5 year old slept well until 4 when the light shining outside our room looked like the sun and that was the start to our day. Check in was not great we were here before reception closes but no one was there so we waited a while then did the self check in. We got to our place and there wasn’t even a phone for reception it felt like an air bnb no service. The main bedroom looked nice the lounge was dated but fine, the kitchen and bathroom looked nice. We tried to log onto wifi with the password that didn’t work, the fold out bed was awful - I was expecting it to be average but it was marginally more comfortable than the floor you could feel every spring. I put the kids to bed and when I came to go to bed I found big ants everywhere 🐜. I killed then all tried to figure out where they were coming from but couldn’t, I plugged the bath put a towel over the drain, next to the day fry door. I thought they were all dead but they kept on coming. Our floor is covered with dead ants but at least the kids didn’t wake up. The skylights are a nice feature but very dirty. The place was very light in the night. If it hadn’t been for the ants I probably wouldn’t have been writing this review but to have an unclean place with a pest issue on top of everything else was too much - I guess it could have been worse could have been cockroaches everywhere. All in all the unit itself was fine just a bit uncomfortable, no service and light but the pest issue was a big no no from me. I hope they sort this out but we won’t be back again. If the place at been a motel I could have put it down to what you get when you don’t pay much but we paid nearly $400 for this experience so I am not impressed. They had a satisfaction survey but no pen 😂.

i was lucky to have a newly updated room, unit with kitchen, small lounge room & extra large bedroom, walk through robe to bathroom. i requested a wheelchair accessible room & the bathroom was great, roomy toilet with just a glass wall for the shower, no doors, no lips, no hand rails but oh well, bonus was the whole unit had hard floors, makes it much easier when using a lifter then on carpet. pool access was not good, had to ram a 4 inch step, its not made for wheelchairs but this room works fine. just request it. room 3210.

After a 500 km drive we arrived at Coffs Harbour, tired, hungry and looking for accommodation when we stumbled onto this oasis on the grounds of the Pacific Bay Resorts. Charlesworth Bay Resort is a beautiful place to stay away from the hustle and bustle and traffic on the outskirts of Coffs Harbour. We were so fortunate to have been led here and to meet the wonderful lady at the reception desk who went out of her way to accommodate us even though they were almost at full capacity. A HUGE thank to Lee Kahler at reception for her kindness, patience & willingness to help us during the most business of times.

Wish I’d have read them everything is true. This is not a luxury resort. Tired old dirty rooms. No staff anywhere. No gym access. Unusable internet. No assigned parking and not enough spaces. But best of all many people live here permanently and they do not like visitors. One resident came INSIDE our room as we brought in our cases and told us off for banging the door. We had been here under 2 minutes. Another resident ambushed my daughter parked by lift unloading her cases with a tiny baby and 2 year old told her off too. Within 90 seconds of arrival. Literally they patrol the place looking for chances to discipline visitors for actually being here !! Nice grounds but horrible atmosphere- rudest barmaid in the bar rude to coworkers and guests went for 1 drink and left. Yes we asked for our room to be cleaned to give the place a chance to step up before complaining and someone came and cleaned one window and sprayed a scent to cover up curry smell but couldn’t get rid of it. Staff are hidden and only available via mobile phone. Ghastly. Do not go. It is not a resort experience!

Hello, We appreciate you taking the time to leave a review of your stay with us at Charlesworth Bay Beach Resort. We're sorry your expectations were not met this time. Here at Charlesworth Bay we strive to provide excellent service. We have a lovely reception office located on Level 1 of Hillside Tower 3, and our friendly staff are always happy to help. Sometimes we are out of the office, busy helping other guests and may only be contactable by mobile phone for a brief period, but as the sign says, we'll be back soon. Guests have access to Beach Bodies gym a short drive away. They also enjoy access to all three pools at the resort, and can book the tennis or basketball court, or take a beautiful beach headland walk directly from the resort. The Restaurant and Bar on site are run as a separate business to us, but we will pass your valuable feedback on to them. I do hope you let us ensure you have an excellent stay with us in the future. Regards, The team at Charlesworth Bay Beach Resort
