“Typical motor inn”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2013

Carpark was a bit tight, narrow spots not necessarily in front of room, would be lucky to get a spot on the street either.

Typical motor inn, bit tired, but clean and satisfactory. We had a room tucked in the back corner, so was a bit dark. Toilet roll holder fell off the wall, so probably due for a bit of work, and the shower didn't drain too well. Mattress was also on its last legs. No spare toilet rolls, i'm a prolific pooper and i only just made it with the single roll provided.

We didn't book, it was the first place we tried, but was pretty full judging by the carpark.

We had fish and chips for dinner at the end of Marina Drive, very good.

Big Banana was awesome. Wife loved it too, she said she loves a big banana, bigger the better, she's disappointed there's no big ones at home.

I stay in Coffs every 6 weeks for work. I normally stay in the town centre however the traffic noise can be annoying.
I stayed in room 20 at Parkside for a change. I'll be staying here from now on.
It's a 3 minute walk into town, the motel is located back from the road so you get a great sleep with very little road noise.
The rooms are modern and very clean. The shower pressure is brilliant and the staff are very friendly.
I ate dinner in my room and the choices were fantastic. As you can see from my photo I had the Duck, Yum!!
Breakfast was also excellent.
When you are in Coffs Harbour do yourself a favour and stay at Parkside.

Room was clean with no surprises, Bathroom bright and clean also. Found a relaxed atmosphere here. The advertised restaurant on the sign in front was not to be found. Motel is close to the centre of town so can choose from many places to eat.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms a little hot when closed up but after opening the windows there is a very good coolin...

Thank you for your feedback. We are glad that you enjoyed our hospitality. We no longer have our restaurant open but do have room service available Sunday to Thursday and the meals are very delicious. Or as you mentioned a very short walk into the city centre for dinner. Thank you for staying and we look forward to seeing you again!

Very friendly service, room was spotless and Could clearly see this is the norm right through the property.
Plasma tv, aircon all made the over night stay enjoyable. You can walk into the city centre of Coffs Harbour from this location in about 5mins.
I had one of the rooms on the top floor with a nice view into the hills.
I would highly recommend the breakfast! I had a full hot breakfast and it was cooked to perfection!
Would not hesitate in staying here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room upstairs

This is not a flash resort with bells and whistles. But it is a neat, clean and tidy place perfect for an overnight stay right in the heart of Coffs. We had a family room with a double and three singles. The room was very clean and well maintained and even the layout was spacious. Tv and AC were welcome. Hosts were very friendly. Pool is simple but nice. Our room was probably a bit pricey but it was peak season and family rooms were all booked out. Close walk to many restaurants as well. Plus the Thai next door id excellent. I would happily return to Best Western Parkside.

Called in here without booking. Host is very nice and nothing was too much trouble. The place is spotless. Large shower. Tea and coffe with biscuits in the room. Quiet airconditioner. Room is basic but very tidy. I would stay here again.
