“A Gem amongst the many in Coffs”
Reviewed 5 May 2012

We had a long drive from Sydney to Noosa and decided to overnight at Coffs - we arrived in the rain and it was dark, but managed to luck out with the Toreador Motel - John made us very welcome - gave us the keys to room 17 (at the back away from the highway) and even looked up Italian restaurants for us - as we had a craving for pasta! Spotlessly clean - free wifi and cable tv - all you could ask for really! When I got back home and realised I had left my nightie behind - John has offered to post this back to me! We will definitely be back! The restaurant we went to was Maria's and again excellent!

Room Tip: Room 17 was Joh'n's recommendation for quiet

We found the staff very friendly, the room was clean and beds comfortable. We stayed overnight on our way to QLD. The family room was adequate in size for the price, pool was fantastic and we will definitely stay here again.

I stayed here with my partner to break up a long trip and we arrived later than planned and as we approached reception, the lady behind the desk was wonderful. Check in was very quick. We proceeded to our room and were pleasantly surprised with how clean the room was! Yes it is basic, but if you want more, you pay a substantial amount more. Would not hesitate to come back! Only found one small issue, air con was quite noisy, but not a big issue. Bed was comfy and we got a great nights sleep. check out was just as quick which made our overall stay quite enjoyable

I read the previous reviews which were very unimpressive, so phoned the motel and found out that the new managers took over that very day - 2 weeks later we arrived and found the family room to be small, basic and very clean. The kids loved the pool which was also clean with an old but stable overhead shade sail. The managers were friendly and polite - the fan in our family room was not working when we arrived but was repaired by an electrician within a couple of hours (aircon worked well if a little noisy). The Toreador was a good motel to break long journeys and the room was quieter than expected as the motel is located near the main road through Coffs Harbour. The new managers are in the process of bringing the motel up to scratch and have already made a major improvement on the motel's previous condition - I think it's more deserving of the 3 stars now.

StevieCoffsHarbour, Owner at Toreador Motel, responded to this review, 12 January 2011
As the new owners of the Toreador we are pleased that our efforts to improve the standard of the rooms , amenities and swimming pool have been appreciated by guests over the Christmas period. We have upgraded the wireless internet access which is now reliably available from all rooms and there are new larger towels and dispenser ammenities.
We will continue to upgrade the property over the coming months while providing value for money and friendly service.

This motel does not deserve 3 stars it makes a claim that it is refurbished and modern UNTRUE. Old fraying towels,mould in bathroom, cigarette burns on furniture, curtains dirty and hanging from hooks, sit on the bed and feel wire. Bad News should be bull dozed.
