We’ve crunched the numbers and it’s official – Coffs Harbour, NSW, is Wotif’s Aussie Town of the Year for 2020. Famous for its Big Banana, Coffs is also home to intimate beaches, untamed rainforests, and some of the friendliest locals around. Now wonder this little slice of NSW North Coast heaven is so apeeling 🍌
Very good service. Even though I reached at really late hours, the room and the key was ready for me. No hassles
Great place to stop when driving north. Rooms are good and the bed is great. Only thing I will say is the shelf in the bathroom probably needs to be moved as to close to basin.
Annuka beach resort Coffs Harbour is a pice if paradise. It felt like we were the only ones on the resort and had our pick of activities such as tennis volley ball or swimming in the various pools . Even with all the COVID-19 restrictions the place there was still plenty to do. The Bure we stayed ...
I liked everything about the property. I wouldn't mind spending a few days there next time instead of just 1 night.
Although close to main road was quiet enough. No close neighbours - we like that, warm, comfortable.
Reception Staff excellent.Would have liked a toaster and microwave in the room.
Have stayed here twice now. Stopped here on my way to and from Brisbane from Vic. For the price and what you get, I'd recommend staying here.
Very spacious apartments, good location to the Pier and some bars, restaurants and amenities such as supermarkets.
Easy access to beach, fantastic water play area for the kids and very friendly staff! Happy relaxed atmosphere and locals
We liked the set up of the room, very comfortable, getting our bags up and down the stairs was a bit of a chore.
Friendly staff, easy checkin, off street parking, clean room, comfortable bed, good location.
Very clean...nicely renovated. Quiet .. even though it was on a busy road.. very friendly staff
We are very happy with our stay at The Bentleigh. We were expecting just queen bed room and were given an upgrade. Very socialable, staff were very nice.
This place is brilliant!! Lovely apartment, fantastic pool. Excellent location. I cannot wait to come back and stay longer.
The service was great, very friendly staff. The door to the motel room may need to be check very hard to open. But this could have been caused by all the wet weather
This property is very basic. Compared to everything else we had stayed in it was very basic, not 4 stars but it was somewhere to sleep for the night
Practical and clean. Nice spot on the water and the staff were very helpful
Like the privacy. Not too noisy. Good parking. Friendly staff
The place was immaculate, from the room we stayed in to the grounds, pools, and facilities. There was nothing I didn’t like.
Close to everything. Dog friendly. Cafe on site. Miniature village on site. A few things in cabin could be updated.
We requested 2 rooms, 1 being smoking and pet friendly the other being non smoking. We expected to have to walk to see other family members and they gave us 2 cabins next to us with joint balconies that could be shut off. When we arrived the lady said one of the cabins had had someone heavily smoke ...
Nice and quiet.Close to shopping and all imprtant things like the pub.
Room was the closest to the highway & traffic lights. Cant be helped I guess but maybe if this was the only room available in the future may decline.
Proximity to the beach was fantastic. Could do with footpath from villas to beach acess
As I have low mobility l asked for a room that was easy to get from the car, close to the pool ,it The apartment was exactly as l requested
clean, comfortable and friendly staff easy to find and close to city centre
Room was cheap and acceptable. Only problem was room claimed to have a ceiling fan which was actually just a pedestal desk-fan mounted to the wall lol but overall great, decent fun gypsy family pub place perfect for late night rest stop base camp. Games room, pokies and kids place featuring 'Brum' ...
Fantastic stay. Great facilities for kids and friendly helpful staff.
The room was very clean, tidy and equiped with everything you needed for a temporary stay. The site has a pool and is a short walk to shops and a local pub.
I could not fault anything.Your staff were wonderful and could not be more helpful.When I visit again I hope to meet them again.
Nice location, Nice outdoor setting, Nice room. Bathroom could be a bit cleaner - had ants in the shower the whole stay and the shower glass was dirty
Amazing view. Property stated it was wheelchair accessible which it was however once inside the apartment the bathrooms were not.
So beautiful and relaxing, quite, comfortable, great pool and the restaurant food was delicious.
love the location very nice walk to wharf. Did not like noise mainly from train line but overall we would stay again.
The winner of the very first Wotif Aussie Town of the Year Awards in 2018, the historic town of Mackay is back on the radar for travelling Aussies in 2020.
The owners were fantastic went out of their way to make sure we were locked after, meals great, room very quiet & comfy. Only issue was the toilet smelt bad. The owners advised there were told to use certain products by HO. Totally recommend, close to city very accommodating!!!
I loved staying here. Staff were amazing in when there was an issue with the booking through Wotif. They went above and beyond to fix the issue.
Aside from the initial booking error made by Wotif, which the hotel manager was amazing and helped to rectify, I had a great stay at this hotel. The room is very spacious and has the most comfortable bed. Excellent value for money. Movies were all FREE which was welcomed as nearly everything on our ...
Room was roomy, well appointed. Although on a main road, it was fairly quiet. Would definitely stay here again
Stunning view from the apt . Close to CBD , but still remind the quietness at the night , close to town beach .
Ease of access and on-site facilities. Breakfast package. Swimming pool and spa jets. Quite.
The staff were just lovely. They couldn’t have been more helpful. The room were clean, roomy and the location was central. We will stay again!
Really friendly staff and excellent value for money. Stayed in an executive spa room and it is really roomy and comfortable. We'll stay here again for sure
Loved everything about this property. Everything was clean and well maintained. All staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was a great size and we loved having a little balcony
Very quiet, beautiful location near the sea. Food was amazing. Shower pressure nearly blew us away. Awesome.
Great service and very helpfully, pleasure to deal with. Apartment was very clean and well looked after which made for a greay relaxing weekend with family.
Convenient location for Our job, clean site and nice wetlands behind with lots of bird life.
Easy check in, big comfortable bed, very clean and decent amount of space (based on room with Queen sized). Quiet, good parking close to rooms.
Property was super clean and fresh, only one draw back only one washer in the bathroom for a room designed for up to 3 people.
I liked that the staff were friendly and helpful. I didn’t like that my credit card had been charged before I checked in when I opted to pay when I checked in. Also the kitchen could do with some more cooking items and utensils.
Amazing position on the river. We saw platypus in the morning and evening. Borrowed games and books from reception. Swam in pool and walked in the forest. No phone coverage, but free wifi in the restaurant. Great for families. Self-contained too.
Very clean staff very helpful easy access on the highway through the town.
Really impressed with our stay, we were upgraded for free, and early check in was no issue, the owner was really nice, the room was very clean, with comfortable beds and in a very quiet area just opposite the beach. I would highly recommend this place.
Like: It was convenient. Didn't like: grounds need a bit of a makeover
Known as the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef, Airlie Beach is an aquatic playground that offers incredible nature experiences by day and a bustling, exciting nightlife.
Staff were very welcoming and the cabin was amazing made you feel right at home.
Great spot. Friendly staff. Great little getaway. Everything u want
Amazing views, helpful staff, convenient location. Seriously, this place is a bargain and ticks ALL of the boxes. Full self contained and spacious too!
We stayed in the one bedroom apartment with Ocean views, the apartment was spacious, the view was beautiful, all kitchen, dining, lounge, washing facilities available. The kitchen and bathroom were just a bit dated
greta value for money and the locate was ideal for just the one night we were in town.
The kitchen inside is well equipped with a great fridge, dishwasher and oven. Tv had Austar which was a great bonus. Bed was really comfy and had a nice bathroom. The best thing was the view from our balcony. We had water views, and at sunset, it was breathtaking to watch!
It was a shame the pool bar wasn’t open. But aside from that the place was Fantastic . The room was very nice and comfortable would most definitely stay here again next holiday
My Sister and I thoughly enjoyed our 2 night stay. It was clean, the staff were excellent. We are coming back for a week's stay. Highly recommended.
Its a bit small to get around the door into the bedroom, but it was a nice place to stay for a few nights.
Our room had a fantastic view! We also enjoyed the lovely pool to relax around!
It was nice & central - plus the trees & bush around the place really made it!!
Very relaxed, family friendly feel. I had space to park my boat with the added protection of security cameras.
Amazing place to stay with a family. We spent our entire time at the water park. Our 1.5yo loved it!! Water slides and pools that can be used from babies to adults. Best family friendly place I’ve ever stayed. Restaurants and shops all within walking distance
Without questions, the best place to stay in Airlie beach, Amazing view, great rooms and great staff
Awesome view from main area. The hill climb was a bit scary but worth it.
Hotel was close to everything. Very roomy. We arrived late but the staff were extremely helpful. Only fault I found was that the cutlery cups and plates needed washing before using as the previous tenants were pretty lazy and put them away with food still on them. Stay at this property previously ...
The owners were very helpful & friendly, the cabin was clean & well stocked, the gardens were beautifully kept so peaceful. Would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a lovely retreat.
Absolutely amazing view of Airlie beach. Close to the action only a few minute walk from restaurants, bars and shops
Friendly reception staff. undercover individual unit parking. close to facilities
Great spacious two bedroom apartment with a lovely view of Airlie and the nearby rainforest
The location was prime close to everything and the price was very affordable for what it was !!! Thanks for stay
We stayed in unit 24 and its view was absolutely amazing from anywhere within the unit. The unit was a good size and could easily accomodate a family of 5. It is a very close walk to the Woolworths, restaurants, cafes, shops and lagoon however it is on a very steep hill so it is a very short intense ...
Great property, well maintained. Loved the view as and the access to the pool.
The minute we walked in the unit there was a sense of calm and quiet luxury. Although the property is starting to show its age, it was clean and comfortable.
Great view over the ocean. Walking distance to main street, restaurants and activities.
We went for the weekend and the hotel was in a great location,close to restaurants and activities. On arrival the unit was very neat and tidy, quite roomy and comfortable
Great facilities they even provide your very own washer and dryer in the room
Terrific! Staff helpful, warm, friendly. Room spacious with just about every domestic need. Beautiful view from the living room, kitchen, bedroom and balcony overlooking the coral sea marina towards the Pacific. Onsite cafe with a view to die for. As a melbourne-r the coffee was great and the pool ...
Great customer service, clean property, peaceful and environmentally friendly. I will definitely return
Very noisy, could hear the road noise and people talking outside and in the next rooms all night, made it difficult to sleep.
The views were incredible from such a high point. Very spacious, huge balcony, great natural decor, felt natural and beachy. Walk down into town was 12 min but we never attepted to walk back up that steep high hill. Was one of the best places ive ever stayed in.
Great lokation, the place to stay in if you are going to Seaforth. Near the beach. We rented the fully supplied appartment on the upper floor with big terass.
Location, Location, Location. Good value on the Main Street with private access to the Lagoon
The property is very old and run down requires a lot of TLC Stairs are a disgrace old and in urgent need of repair - sorry we had to use them never again will not be returning
Airlie Beach Eco Cabins were amazing! My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. One of our highlights was wildlife in the area, particularly once the sun sets. Just make sure you take the advice of the hosts and use insect repellent when outdoors - we both suffered the wrath of the Midge! ...
Located in the heart of the Oyster Coast, Bateman’s Bay offers fresh local seafood and a great base for exploring the wonders and natural beauty of the NSW South Coast.
Right near the Clyde River, and walking distance to Club Catalina & its golf course. Not far from Batemans Bay shpping, restaurants & pubs. Heating unit in the room was not heating well, and there were no electric blankets. Otherwise it was nice & quiet with plenty of room & was comfortable.
Great view, Restaurant on-site. Need better coffee in the room (International Roast) 😲
Our third visit and still wonderful. Clean, tidy and such great service. I even had a wonderful breakfast. Well done Margret.
Nice clean and comfy...Don"t like car parking scratched the side on a poll..Not much damage but not happy.. Nice stay though..
The view is perfect. I appreciated their efforts to reduce single use plastic by installing dispensers in the shower and sink
What a fantastic place. Clean and everything we needed/wanted right by the beach and ten minutes into Batemans Bay....Just perfect.
Highly recommend great customer service good cocktails and prob the best snapper dish I have ever had highly recommend
We loved how the property was so close to the beach as well as the kangaroos and we also liked the walking tracks around the resort.Only downside was the fact that the bathrooms weren't very clean,especially after thorough hygiene was specifically mentioned on the website,due to the corona virus. ...
The staff could not have been more helpful. I will be booking here again. Thank you.
Excellent location, well presented and appointed rooms, could not fault them on anything. Thank you for being a haven in difficult times.
Very clean and comfortable. Really good price for the night. Much like the other places we have been staying with this trip. missed having tissues shampoo /conditioner. Really cheap toilet paper.
The staff where very friendly and welcoming the room was very clean and we loved the river views, and walking distance to shops and restaurants! Highly recommend!
The location is great close to the beach, not to far to drive to the shopping center for all of your supplies. Very relaxing listening to the waves at night.
Was good enjoyed the stay few things are a little run down but friendly clean and good fun
The manager was very friendly and polite. The room was emaculate with water views fron the verandah. Will definately stay there again. Highly recommend it for anyone staying in batemans bay.
Fabulous apartment with views to die for!! Great heating and cooling options. Lovely staff. Stylish and like a home away from home. Beautiful throughout. And super close to good coffee and food in batemans bay. Loved it!!
Great location and the new water park was a definite winner with our nine year old. Highly enjoyable stay, thanks.
We stayed in a suite, the room size was excellent, the bed very comfortable and warm. The air con worked well and the mini kitchen was adequate for a short stay. The staff where friendly and helpful. Would stay there again.
The twin room was perfect for our one night stay in Batemans Bay. Beds were comfortable and room very clean.
The staff were very friendly and accommodating.They offered me to stay past checkout time.Thank you for being so considerate.
Quietness and lovely office lady would book here again
Although having the toilet away from our cabin, the amenities were spotless and clean and fresh. The location was great and the space itself was very comfortable and clean.
So close to town, its quiet, the staff are friendly, rooms are great, cheap, definitely recommended,
Perfect location so close to the sandy path to beautiful South Durras beach! The view from our cabin verandah was of banksia trees, birds and bush. Good facilities, friendly welcome and very comfortable. We’ll be back.
We stayed in the condo spa was very spacious with plenty of room and located right in front of the pool. Can’t wait to head back during the warmer month.
We went as an extended family for a weekend get together so used a variety of accommodation from canp site through to luxury villa. All up we had 4 dufferent types of accommodation and everyone was happy with their choice. We ranged in age from 1 - 65 and everyine had a great time. We will be ...
