The choice we made to break the return home to Brisbane in two, with a couple of nights at Coffs Harbour, was most definitely a good one. The grounds are fabulous at The Novotel Coffs Harbour Pacific Bay Resort. Many on site facilities include, Segway hire, swimming pools, golf course, walking tracks, even a little general store.
Reception staff were friendly and helpful. Accommodation is located separately to the reception area, bar, I myself enjoyed the short walks too and from the bar/restaurant. We were lucky to be enjoying fabulous weather which most certainly helped! Undercover parking near our room, was a definite bonus.
Our room was a king suite with balcony and a view across the water and golf course. The room itself was clean, tidy, even though it may be time to update some of the chipped tiles in the bathroom. The balcony didn’t appear to be cleaned regularly, however it was a generous size with both shaded and sunny areas. We did enjoy the fridge not being used as a minibar. Minibars are not something we use, generally due to the overpriced items, therefore it was refreshing to be able to use the fridge for items which we had purchased.
The room itself was quiet and comfortable. The shower was roomy, with plenty of room throughout the rest of the bathroom.
Walking tracks take you to the nearby beach, and also meander throughout the grounds. A very enjoyable place to walk around. All staff we met, including cleaning staff were friendly and helpful.. There were many
grounds people around, with a lot of attention given to maintaining the extensive grounds.
We did enjoy meals at the restaurant, which I have reviewed separately.
Most definitely, we look forward to returning for another break away.
