Friendly staff, lovely room, spotlessly clean with very comfortable beds. Location is very convenient and surprisingly there is no traffic noise. The restaurant on site is a definite plus and the food and service is fantastic.

Room very basic but clean. Wi if was useless, even the receptionist apologised for it - known problem. There is nothing to do in the immediate vicinity, as the hotel us in the middle of an industrial estate. Unless you are prepared to take a hike or use your car, you are stuck. Pool are needs upgrading, as do the rooms in requiring redecoration. The parking Bay has an air of neglect, with shopping trolleys lying abandoned (no idea where the associated supermarket was). The Bavarian restaurant was good and Breakfast was fine. I would not recommend this place.

Dear Dawn, thank you for taking the time to review your stay - we are conveniently located to central Coffs Harbour and a brisk 30 minute walk will get you there in no time - Coffs Harbour attractions are generally quite spread out so we recommend taking a short drive to popular destinations such as the Jetty Beach and The Big Banana. We are not sure how the dreaded shopping trolleys found their way into our complex but we can assure you that they were not welcome and were removed. We are glad you enjoyed our breakfast offering and found the Bavarian restaurant suitable to your needs. All the best, The Big Windmill Management Team.

We had A one night stay at the hotel as we were on a road trip to Queensland. Clean and good hotel for a short stay and for good price too. Not too family friendly though. Great for a couple on the loose

As a woman travelling on my own between Sydney & the Gold Coast, I needed an inexpensive, clean & safe place to spend the night. This is a classic regional / country-style motel - good sized room, with somewhat outdated decor but overall a decent place for a one night stop-over. Didn't try the restaurant or breakfast facilities. Tea & coffee-making gear, small fridge, toaster & microwave provided in the room (though no plates or knives & forks - cups, glasses & teaspoons provided). Clean family-run motel that's easily accessible from the Pacific Highway with very little noise heard in the room. Would stay again now I know they cater for pets - useful to know when travelling with our "fur baby"!

Thank you for your kind review, yes we do indeed host pets and their owners - there is a surcharge for accommodating pets but just make sure to call in advance before you book so we can set aside one of our limited pet friendly rooms for you. We're glad that you felt safe, comfortable and well looked after as we understand it is not always convenient to travel alone. All the best and we look forward to hosting you again soon, Kind regards, The Big Windmill Management Team
