    « Very accomodating staff »

    The staff very friendly and accomodating from the time we made our phone call. The room was very clean and tidy and comfortable. If we had to have a complaint, it was a cold night (cold snap) and the air con was stuck on cold. The bed was comfortable and warm so not really a problem.

    « Surprisingly Good »

    This establishment ticked all the boxes. Close to the town centre, exceptionally clean and comfortable. Well appointed. Friendly helpful staff. Restaurant open for dinner and breakfast and a bar if you fancy a drink. Very affordable. Free wifi. Close the the highway but no road noise in our room towards the real. What else is there to add?

    « Great Place to stay »

    Great place for a business traveller, clean, great decor, good restaurant and breakfast and very helpful staff who knew the area well and helped by providing maps of the local area and possible places to find food! Will definitely stay again! The

    « Very enjoyable stay »

    Friendly obliging staff. Very nice room. Clean towels every day. (I stayed 4 nights). Ample parking. Well priced meals in the dining room. Nice to eat in after a long day on the road. Would definitely recommend to friends/colleagues.

    « Clean and comfortable, quiet location »

    We stayed at the Zebra for 1 night as part of a road trip. Lots of parking spaces available. We stayed on second floor, easy to access up a flight of stairs. Our room was very clean, lovely king bed and clean linen. Lounge chair, tv and small table also in the room. We stayed in room 36 which would suit a couple. Bathroom clean, towels white and clean and shower excellent. Location is great, still close to shops, food etc but also far enough away so was very quiet. Has pool in middle of property near driveway, did not use but looked clean and maintained. Staff were friendly and helpful. Fresh milk provided, mini fridge, kettle and some complimentary bikkies! Would stay at the property again when passing through.

    « Need refurishments »

    I travel a fair amount for work and stay at various places overnight and even a week at a time. This place was quite average for the price. On the plus side, staff were friendly on check in and checkout.

    « Worth a Visit »

    Passing through on our way to Queensland we had an overnight stay at this very presentable motel. We were warmly received and given a lovely room and invited to dine at the restaurant that night. The room was situated on the upper level was spotlessly clean with king size bed beautiful linen and plenty of pillows. The bathroom had the best ever amenities fluffy towels and a fabulous shower head. Very quiet location even though it is close to the highway. A short stroll to the main shopping area as well. Good food lovely staff will be our first choice when passing through again. We had left an item of clothing in the room and Darryl contacted us to let us know which was much appreciated.

    « Really good »

    Comfortable room with everything we needed. Best thing was the staff - from reception to the cleaning staff - everyone we encountered was super friendly and helpful and they were able to accommodate all of our extra requests like a late check out and somewhere for my wife to work after check out for an hour of so. Would definitely return.

    « Golf weekend Easter »

    Looking for a nice relaxing place to stay very clean rooms spacious approximately 50 rooms 2 levels plenty of car spaces swimming pool nice dining room continental or cooked breakfast restaurant open at night helpful and professional staff Daryl &Simon have been here just over 12 months doing a great job

    « Can't go wrong »

    Brilliant motel just off highway, friendly staff, great clean rooms with an amazing shower (perfect after a 5 hour drive) Food is good, some of the best onion rings I've ever had and a decent steak to boot. And fresh milk given on arrival!

    « Awesome In-house Restaurant! »

    The room is older but clean with a near new bathroom. The in-house restaurant is stuck in the 90's with a zebra/African theme...but all that matters is the food is really good! Service is great. Never had a bad meal. Breakfast and Dinner! Excellent! And the eccentric manager of the hotel is a hoot! The only fault with this hotel is the noise from the highway... but considering it's location, that can't be helped.

    « Highly recommend »

    Recently had two nights here. I was impressed from the time I walked into reception. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Room very clean, bed so comfortable , bathroom clean and modern with an amazing shower. Ordered room service both nights and both meals were spot on. Stayed here a couple of years ago and was not impressed, this time however I can't recommend it highly enough.

    « Exceptional gem in central NSW »

    We stayed for to nights at the BW Zebra. The attention to detail is excellent. Highlights. 1. Customer Service Lovely greeting, small details such as fresh milk (no UHT here), superb recommendations for places to eat, taking the time to engage with you as a person. This is probably the Zebra's most standout feature. 2. Decoration The motel has clearly been refurbished and it they have done a great job. 3. Cleanliness My personal bugbear. I have OCD on this front, to the extent that I carry my own cleaning products and have had to clean many a five star hotel room. Not the Zebra. There was not even any dust on the top of picture frames or behind the TV and no mound at all in the bathrooms! 10/10 (A score I have NEVER given before) 4. F&B Breakfast was a continental over the weekend but they also do a bacon and egg sandwich that is excellent and,with a cappuccino for $8, is fantastic value for money. There is also a small bar for a drink. Zulus restaurant serves dinner and the menu looked great but, unfortunately, we were unable to try the dinner offering. 5. Location A short walk to restaurants, Woolworths and the local pub. All in all, this is a lovely place to stay and I would highly recommend it.

    « Not a bad stay »

    Pre-booked a night at the Zebra Motel in Coffs Harbour for work. Upon arrival I was dealt with quickly and dropped my bags off in the room. Unfortunately room 12A suffers from that motel musty smell. The room however was large and had all the amenities you could want. The motel has a bar/restaurant and plenty of parking. On leaving in the morning I was going to enjoy breakfast in the empty dining room however I was then told my corporate rate (which was booked to include wifi and breakfast) apparently didn't include breakfast, so I went elsewhere. Be sure to take a copy of your booking just incase.

    « Lovely Accommodation »

    This is the second or third time I have stayed at this motel and each time the quality of the rooms has been outstanding. From the spotless bathroom to the spacious room itself and comfortable bed the motel is extremely good value. Although located close to the main road we noticed very little road noise.

    « Diamond in the rough »

    Stopped in on our way back from Canberra to Brisbane and was greeted The lady of the desk Rejani i think that is her name so warm and friendly. We got our keys to our room and was told about the bar , what time breakfast was, dinner service and the pool. We where able to park right outside our unit and the unit was spacious, clean and tidy. The bed was comfortable, bathroom plenty of space clean and a rain shower head. The grounds where clean and tidy pool was sparkling and clean. The hotel is close to the shops and club and pubs but the bar there at the hotel was just as cheap for the beer as the club. Afterwards had dinner in restaurant and the desert of bread and butter pudding was grouse love every bit of it. Thanks for the wonderful stay we will be back thats for sure

    « Great value »

    Stopped off on the way to Sydney. Great motel. Clean, comfortable, good parking and bar service. Didn't use the restaurant. Overall very pleasant stay. Couldn't fault a thing. The Reception staff were extremely helpful. Didn't have time to use the pool but looked welcoming after a long hot drive.

    « Fantastic »

    Very happy with our stay. Clean. Everything was available and worked. Easy parking 3m from room. Great pool Would stay again if in town. Has a restaurant although we didnt try it. Staff were very helpful and friendly

    « Vanessa »

    New owners have revitalised this motel and restaurant in so many ways. Nice grounds with clean sparkling pool. Rooms are clean, sheets and towels fresh and new with very comfortable bed. Friendly and polite staff. Wonderful bar with big TV and restaurant serving up food favourites such as yummy schnitzel makes this an ideal stopover whilst in Coffs Harbour.

    « Coach tour overnight »

    As a coach tour, very easy parking for coach & unloading of cases at the rear of motel. Management met us and gave out room numbers which was excellent. Room were very clean, fresh and modern. TV good, shower easy access. Restaurant was excellent with meals for 44 people served promptly, all enjoying the repast. Management came onboard coach to farewell us which was the only motel to do so during our trip. Will certainly use this motel again,

    « Pleasant Surprise »

    Highly recommend. Purchased 3 nights for my father in law, Max, to enjoy as a 90th birthday present. The thought that has gone into the motel makeover has resulted in a vastly improved facility. Max and Lois had a great time. Thankyou so much. John and Sue

    « Hard to beat Best Western for dependable value. »

    Easy to find for us wanting a quick stop over as it was right off the main highway. Surprisngly quiet considering how close to the highway too. Room was up to date, clean with comfy bed and couch for lounging. Excellent wifi and very good restaurant just steps across the parking lot. Had wonderful dinner and good breakfast as well. Pleasant front desk personnel made for a lovely stay. Gave us great recommendations for stops for the next day as well.

    « 2 night stay at Best Western Zebra Motel »

    The room we stayed in was nice and clean. It had a lounge, couple of chairs and a king sized bed. The bed was excellent. There is free wifi. The complex has a pool and restaurant. We did not go to the restaurant, so I can't comment on the food or price. Unfortunately there was no microwave and we had to ask for a toaster. You can walk to the town centre in 8 minutes. Would stay here again.

    « To close to Trucks and Pacific highway noise »

    This motel was lovely and comfortable loved the breakfast going down to the Resturant for tea hope it is worth it Would stay here again very quiet during the day Only stayed for 2 nights in our way to the Gold Coast

    « Mrs Poole »

    Had such a great experience the first time we came back room was very clean,well presented and comfortable! The restaurant offered a variety of food choices, including vegan, and the food was amazing. Good selection of wines. Welcoming hosts and staff. Definitely 4/12stars. Our second visit to coffs harbour and i would definitely recommend a stay here. We will return!!!!!!

    « Clean and Comfortable »

    Stayed here for 5 nights last week and had a hassle free stay. The rooms were of a good size and clean. Breakfast was good. The staff were very helpful. Parking available outside rooms.The motel is situated on the highway but in close proximity to the airport, shops and restaurants. Recommended.

    « Too Close To The Pacific Highway For A Decent Night's Sleep »

    This motel had nice rooms and the service was great. It cost me $700 for four nights so it certainly wasn't cheap...But my main issue with this motel is it's proximity to the Pacific Highway where interstate trucks drive ALL NIGHT. Seriously wouldn't stay here again purely because of the noise. Just couldn't stay asleep.

    « Great service »

    Most motels are basic, here things are done with just a little more panache. The room is most comfortable, with décor that is above average. The bathroom is very well appointed and there are more than adequate amenities. Very unusually, breakfast (Continental) is included. The staffing is very friendly and the site also includes a restaurant and bar. Definitely a run-of-the-mill place it is NOT. Well done to management for clearly going that extra step. It shows.

    « One of better stays »

    From time arriving, we were looked after like kings. Staff were understanding of our needs. Room was well appointed, as we were expecting of Best Western. being in centre of town, was not far from attractions.

    « Great modern rooms with good air con »

    Stayed one night, expected average but was really good with good fitout, good bed and very clean. Would use again. Road noise low with good food and facilities close by. Wifi fast and free. Run out of stuff to say but TripAdvisor was more words

    « overnight stay »

    just a quick stay on our way up the coast. we only book the morning before we left home. bed was very uncomfortable. the noise from the trucks and other traffic was terrible, bad night sleep. not what we what with another full days travel ahead.

    « Good place to stay »

    A good motel in a great location close to shops and Ex Services club. Rooms are well appointed with a very comfortable bed and good bathroom. High quality TV. Has good facilities with a restaurant. Not too far to the marina and beach but need a car. Plenty of car parking inside the motel as well out the back. The staff are friendly and helpful. Check-in and out are easy and handled well. Certainly recommend this motel.

    « Pleasant Stay »

    Great location, Friendly and very helpful staff, Good home cooked meals with out all the fuss and cheap. The Internet speed was fast with a strong signal. Location was great and close to most of the locations I had to visit

    « Not Surprised »

    At a $170 a night you would expect a certain level of expertise in hotel accommodation on a Central Coast large town. Don't expect too much and you might be surprised ? Hope it happens for you, lots of places to stay in Coffs but I would be aiming higher.

    « Driving Holiday Mid North Coast »

    We asked for and were given a large, nice quiet room, down stairs about halfaway along the block. No highway noise detected. This room was very accessible for my disabled wife. There was a very comfortable 3 seater lounge, an extremely comfortable King Size bed with high quality bedding. A good sized flat screen TV, and a very nice very recently refreshed bathroom area with a great shower, completed the room. We chose to dine in the Dining room, and were treated to an excellent meal when we both chose the "fish of the day" expertly prepared and presented by their chef, accompanied with a lovely bottle of wine. This was the last night of our holiday and was indeed a memorable experience. Thank you to Daryl, the licensee, for his attention and service.

    « Nice and comfortable. Adequate. »

    New owners trying to improve the property. Liked the small restaurant but we were the only folks there for breakfast. Bed left something to be desired. Overall reminded me of old drive in motels. Would stay there again.

    « Home away from home »

    Great service, owned managed by well experienced owners. Clean and tidy rooms. Accomodating and friendly staff. Well priced and good value. They are working on updating all the rooms, even though they are already good too!

    « Great bed! »

    We stayed one night on our way south and it was a very comfy night. The room was spotlessly clean and the bed was wonderful (nice linen and plenty of good pillows). The bathroom is a good size and the shower is great. The air con was appreciated as it was humid in Coffs that day and we found the place quite quiet really (it was a Wednesday). The reception staff were very professional and helpful Happily recommended.

    « new owner same crap »

    price rise $10 per room no improvement same old bedding that has been there for years reopened the bar and restaurant but at $7 a bottle of XXXX no way it will be a go the breakfast $20 slop wont be back after 20years of annual visits total wiped the joint now.

    « Comfortable stay for one night »

    I stayed here for one night on my trip down the East Coast. I took the Greyhound from Brisbane and it was important to me to find a place a short walk from the bus stop, Best Western is right across the road from the Greyhound stop and it was reasonable priced. My room was spacious and comfortable, the bathroom modern and well equipped. The motel is a short walk from a big Woolworths but at the time I visited (Saturday afternoon) the town resembled a ghost town and besides Woolies most places were shut. Because of this I had to have dinner at the motel in their Zulu restaurant, which was over my meager backpacking budget but nonetheless value for money. The steak was a really decent portion, the chef even brought me fresh bread and the service throughout my stay was impeccable, not what I expected from a motel. There's a small pool though I didn't use it. The bus stop to the beach/train station is a 5-7 mins walk from the motel. I definitely recommend this place for a short or long stay.

    « close to cbd »

    I was surprised when i walked in off the street to book a room. no standby rates. when i got into my room and did a search on the web found i could have got the room for $12.00 cheaper than i paid. the room was spacious and the bathroom area recently updated. there were no teaspoons to stir coffee. the bar frig could not hold a bottle of wine upright, however the bed and pillows were comfortable and the reception staff very helpful. i would stay here again for the location.

    « Great Motel »

    We spent 4 nights at the Zebra. The room was very clean , quite large and the Queen sized bed was extremely comfortable. The Pool was Very clean and a good size. When I return to Coffs I will stay there again. Definately good value for Money!! The Only Dissapointment was that the Restuarant and Bar were not open while I stayed there.

    « What a welcome sight after a long day »

    After a long day of organizing and packing the van we come upon this little treasure and I am happy we did as the place was very clean and the bed comfortable, for what little time I spent in it before I was on the road heading south again. Would not hesitate to use again.

    « Great spot »

    Stoped on way south from the Gold Coast but only over night found great service and good clean rooms, reception very helpful and attentive, Motel is well situated close to Dinning and entertainment not far from town centre and water in a pleasant area

    « Clean and comfortable »

    Large clean room and bathroom, comfortable bed. Could have been improved with brighter lighting (although the lights in the bathroom are more than enough to do your make-up). Advertises as having Pay-TV but it wasn't working either night I stayed. Would happily stay here again.

    « Excellent property, great , friendly and very helpful staff. Would definately return ! »

    from the the moment I showed up at around 20:30, I was welcomed, and very well looked after. The rooms are very well appointed, nice, clean and smart. Yes, you can hear the through traffic, but I was only aware of it, it was NOT an issue for me - and I've lived on main a arterial road with semis running past my house 20m away for years. To those here who have written the passing trucks etc kept them awake, that was not the case with me. What do you expect if you choose to stay at a motel that's located on a major intra and interstate thoroughfare ? I slept very soundly and superbly at this establishment. I would definitely stay here again in heart beat if the need arose. Well done to all the staff at Best Western Zebra Coffs Harbour, thanks for an enjoyable stay !

    « ended up leaving and going to the motel next door »

    According to the sign out front it had an award winning restaurant and foxtel and part of a well regarded franchise so we checked in. But there was no restaurant, no foxtel and the phone was so crackly it was unusable. Refused to discount due to missing services even though it was above the average cost. when we got back from dinner and found the foxtel was "broken" I asked if we could get some discount for not being as advertised. Told we could get a refund if we left, so we did. We went to the motel right next door which had everything and was $36 cheaper. The only time we have ever left a motel in disgust. The attitude was "you can put up, pay full price or bugger off". Very poor business.

    « Noisy with impatient cleaners and management »

    The place seems to have a lot of rooms and did not seem to be full on our late arrival, however we were put up next to a large family who were naturally noisy with a number of children. The noise came through our unit quite badly which resulted in poor sleep. The following morning the cleaners arrived right on check out time as we were attempting to get organised from our poor sleep, within five minutes management was calling us asking if we were staying another night. Certainly lacked patience and customer service. The unit itself was lovely and modern, with a upgraded bathroom. Reasonably priced but not the greatest location unless you are just stopping on your way through as we were. Bed was too hard. Wouldn't stay again, disappointing.

    « Great location, great staff »

    Four of us were visiting from the USA for a few days. The location was great to all Coffs has to offer. Clean rooms and a very welcome and helpful staff, they were A+ and made us feel at home. When booking this hotel, Expedia made it a snap. Better experience than investigating booking nearby Shearwater motel that thought my credit card was a fraud (thanks Shearwater, you will be under new management again soon). Glad I stayed here instead! Thanks Zebra staff, hope to see you again.

    « Comfortable and friendly »

    We were seeking a room with 2 beds on the ground floor, and found one here with two queen beds. The staff were helpful when both my friend and I phoned requesting a ground floor room. The property has two storeys and a restaurant that didn't appear to be open the Friday night we were there. There is also a large pool for summer visitors. The beds were comfortable, though some of the pillows were a bit odd. The room was large, with two comfortable chairs and a nice modern bathroom with a good shower. Our only minor drawbacks were not enough uht milk (only 4 tiny containers in a room big enough for 4, and being a country motel in a dairy area, I would have loved fresh milk), and a very high step from the parking area to the porch, or a very steep short ramp. This would make an otherwise accessible room a hazard for the elderly or mobility challenged.

    « Great bathroom »

    Comfortable bed . Receptionist very friendly. I travel a lot for business and this place was too noisy right on pacific motorway, traffic all night . Arrived back to stay second night and found bed not made .....not happy. Restaurant also closed , this was not mentioned when booking made .

    « Stopover in Coffs Harbour »

    No reservation so a room was great.The bathroom was beautiful but the room itself was wanting a complete do over.While the beds were comfy the donna was in need of a little stuffing and the single bed doona had a rip in it.Other than that quite and accomodating and a beautiful bathroom.The dining room was closed for breakfast due to chef leaving but no notice in room.

    « Nice friendly staff, quick check in very helpful. »

    My room was very modern, nice new bed and lounge very clean and modern bathroom great size room overall and quite. I would recommend to any traveler. Staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough for me they told me how to get to the shopping centres, post office, best bars and resturants, directions to Nana glen. Great breakfast fast service. Room was warm and cosy good size TV great air conditioner, fridge / mini bar was filled with a good mix of drinks and food, I travel all over New South Wales for work and don't often get the great service that was given to me while I was staying here.

    « Comfortable and clean »

    A very clean, large and comfortable motel room with a superb rainhead shower rose.Although right on the main highway there was little noise but a room on the rear row units will be less susceptible to road noise. All the usual lotions etc were available and adequate. Having through Qantas check in/check out were quick and easy and professionally processed. Have stayed here before and will certainly return when next in Coffs.

    « Peaceful clean and great location »

    I didn't have a reservation, driving through on my way south. I saw the free internet on the lit sign, then checked into a room at the back. Very helpful desk clerk gave me confidence about the quality. The room was clean and peaceful. As everyone mentions, lovely rainhead shower. All the liquids and lotions were full and ready in my bathroom. A great way to cut down on waste trash and product. The desk clerk was organizing for some people to get a lift to a local club for dinner in the club's van. It looked like fun, but I chose a quiet option. I slept really well, and awoke ready for a safe drive.

    « Very helpful »

    Very helpful staff Had room at front ground floor noisy but to be expected right on highway. Priced the same as anywhere else. Truck parking out front, very clean and tidy presents well. Would use again but maybe request rear rooms large size rooms.

    « This is Truck Highway They Never Stop. »

    We drove 12 Hours To This Hotel I Mentioned This To This To Reception Too. We Didn"t Get Any Sleep all night. The Trucks were using their exhaust brakes all night. The motel is on a Hill so that means Brakes Down Hill Accelerating Up Hill. Never Again. They need to pay Me To Sleep There.

    « Clean, good price & strategic location »

    We stop by in the afternoon and we really satisfied with this motel. We ordered queen bed they give us king bed (maybe is low season). The price reasonable, very clean, everything quite new, good bed, they also provided the proper liquid hand soap, liquid body wash, shampoo & conditioner & hand/ body cream all in the dispenser. Next time will stay in this motel again when we visit Coffs Harbour.

    « Friendly Staff »

    Nice and friendly staff, always willing to help. Very Affordable prices. Enjoyable and clean accommodation with really comfortable beds. Plenty of options for a pleasant meal as it is located in a good position in town. Well worth a go if you are in Coffs Harbour.

    « Great value and super convenient »

    The duty manager was exceptional - I turned up grubby, frazzled, and laden with bags and equipment from spending two days working out at a field station. He was so friendly, and informative and kind. When I told him that my phone was broken, he gave me a local map and showed me where to find everything I might want (and the opening hours). For the price, I was expecting a motel room that was just adequately clean and convenient. Instead, I had one with a couch, a comfy bed, fast internet, and a newly renovated bathroom complete with a rain shower!

    « It provided a place to sleep for the night »

    We arrived late in the evening and had to summon the manager(?) to assist us. He seemed confused since he had been told that all reservations had been checked in. Apparently a new staff person messed up check-in reservations. I was assured that we had a room and it all worked out. We were given a room along the back of the motel away from the busy street. The room was on the second floor and we had to climb stairs to reach it (something to consider if stairs are an issue). The rooms appear to be undergoing an upgrade. The bathrooms were outfitted with new sinks, cabinets and tiled showers. Our bathroom didn't look quite finished, and the shower door had problems. The outer rooms were clean and decent, just not impressive. The motel served our purpose of having a place to sleep for the night.

    « Im not so sure..... »

    At first I was a little taken back. Arriving later in the evening it was a little confronting to see so many people hanging out around the balcony area. The guests were quite loud at an unreasonable time in the carpark, It isn't really the hotels fault. Unfortunately the restaurant was closed as the chef had resigned, this was a major consideration when booking, after driving all day I didn't really want to have to go out for dinner. The rooms were ok, surprisingly though, the beds were exceptionally comfortable. Would I return? I'm undecided.

    « Best Western Zebra Motel - Good Location »

    The duty manager has been helpful upon check in. The location is quite convenient, you can walk to central (shops and supermarket, restaurant) within 5 minutes. Room is clean, with Free WIFI!! However the decoration of the room can be better.

    « Good service but attention to detail is lacking »

    Rooms are quiet for the location (next to a busy main road) and the staff were helpful and friendly. No shower caps were provided in the bathroom and when I requested one (you can't adjust the large shower head) it was promptly delivered to my room. A late check out was also accommodated. The hand cream dispenser in the bathroom was empty and no separate soap is provided aside from the dispenser which is very irritating if they are empty. The coffee cups were also dirty which was disappointing. Rooms are a good size and wifi is stable which was important for work that needed to be done. All in all a fair option for an overnight stay for business.

    « Surprisingly quiet »

    Recently stayed overnight on business trip. My room had a fantastic bathroom, very modern and the best shower and water pressure i have experienced in a long time. Had a room at back of motel so heard no noise.

    « Jennifer Deppeler »

    Really enjoyed our night. Extremely friendly staff and was made extremely welcome on arrival. We will definetly be returning. We were traveling with a camper trailer and the staff made accommodation for it as well which I thought was very good of them

    « Great Motel »

    We have stayed in this motel a few times. We found the staff helpful and friendly. The rooms are really comfortable and clean. Although the main road seems close we have never been disturbed by road noise. It is a short drive to various eateries plus the motel's own Resturant is right there without driving anywhere. We cant comment on the motel's resturant food because we havent tried it. The menu ( shown in the rooms ) looks very different and interesting. The reason we havent tried it is, my husband only likes plain foods and I am gluten sensitive ( added together this makes us pretty boring dinner guests ! ) We like it enough to always stay there when we are traveling north or south.

    « A bit disappointing »

    The staff were friendly and helpful. The bedside reading lamps were inadequate. There was no hair conditioner in the dispenser in the shower, which I didn't realised until AFTER I washed my hair. I expected a bit more for $135 on a week day.

    « Modern rooms and services. »

    The room was above our expectations. Very nice bathroom, european basin, large and powerful shower head and convenient health and beauty dispensers in shower and bathroom. The room was standard. Cleanliness was overall good. They also provided complimentary free wifi. We would have no hesitation in coming here again.

    « Seeking refuge - great stay! »

    I had been camping and sustained an injury resulting in a visit to the hospital and an inability to continue camping. The staff at the Zebra motel were amazingly welcoming , entered I had a ground floor room and could not have been more helpful. The room was extremely comfortable, clean and well presented.

    « Good motel »

    This is a very friendly, clean, comfortable motel. It is very good value for money. Only downside as the restaurant was not operating due to no chef. A suggestion of places to eat in the vicinity would have been a nice addition to the room. Overall I would stay here again.

    « Exceptional »

    When travelling I look for stays that provide firstly, excellent service, great accommodation quality and value prices. These guys were fantastic. Bright, conversational and a happy place in the midst of a busy business schedule. I stay in many places. This was exceptional!!

    « Motels In Coffs »

    Considering some of the other motels in Coffs this stacked up to be one of the BETTER. Rooms were roomy clean ,modern, within walking distance to pubs and restaurants Staff very good . breakfast available restaurant still closed but look expensive .

    « Passing through Coffs Harbour »

    Well located and a short walk to clubs and pubs. I was very dissappointed that the restaurant had closed down and we had to go elsewhere for a meal. The bed was a little hard for me as I like a softer bed. Luckily we were in a back unit away frlom the traffic noise of the Pacific Highway

    Excellent place for people finding peace on a world tour journey. coffs harbour is a great place for people who enjoy moderately bright sunlight, beautiful beach, and mountainous jungle near by. This hotel is right on the pacific highway, has an airport and a railway station too. It is out of the small town but at such a delicate small distance that you can enjoy both in and out of the city/town with great comfort and in a nice peace.

    « Conveniently located »

    This motel is conveniently located close to shopping and entertainment within walking distance of shops, restaurants, pubs and clubs. The rooms were clean and the bed comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful.


    I have stayed at this motel many times over the last few years and found the owners and staff very friendly and accommodating. The bathrooms had a face lift with a more modern theme a couple of years ago. The restaurant, although closed at my last visit has an unusual theme which is very appealing. The highway traffic noise can be annoying but acceptable.

    « Dropping through option »

    The room was clean and great for what we needed travelling with young kids from Syd to Gold Coast. The restaurant was closed the night we stayed. Sadly the room rate was ridiculous at $350 because of the time of year, more than double what you would normally pay.

    « Great short stay option »

    We searched Coffs Harbour for somewhere that was a close and easy drive to the Base Hospital as my husband required a Day procedure. We phoned around and after speaking to the very helpful receptionist decided on the Zebra. The rooms at $130 were well appointed with a very clean modern bathroom, lounge/ dining area, a King size bed and a mini bar. There was an air conditioner and a decent size TV. All in all very coomfortable for our two night stay. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. Couldn't ask for more really.......very satisfied. Although close to the highway one really doesn't hear the traffic. Be aware that because of Health and Safety that the shower water is not hot hot hot. We didn't use the cold tap at all in the shower. We were told it was for safety reasons.

    « Very polite and helpful staff »

    Very polite, friendly and helpful staff. I will definitely being stay here when I'm in town next. Room was a great size and very clean. Look forward to the resturant opening back up as I have heard good things.

    « Recent stay with colleagues »

    I encouraged my colleagues to stay at the Motel as it used to have great atmosphere and a very good restaurant. I was quite disappointed that the restaurant was closed and the overall standard has dropped. I understand there are new owners since my last stay but boy from a thriving \\motel in a very competitive market to an average one is a real shame.

    « Drive through Coffs Harbour »

    We stayed overnight at the Zebra Motel Coffs Harbour. The room was spotless!! facilities just what we needed. Main restaurant was closed at the motel, however, Woolies was close by. We were tired having driven from Gold Coast, so picked up supplies and ate in our room. Bathroom towels clean, soft and luxurious.

    « annual holidays »

    I enjoyed my stay at the Zebra Motel at Coffs Harbour,I only stayed for one night because I was on my way to Brisbane. The Receptionist was nice and friendly and the Room was nice and clean and very comfortable and it was only a short stroll to the Shops.

    « Comfortable clean rooms »

    Checked in late 9pm, travelling from Sydney. Reception staff friendly. Room large a little dated but clean and comfortable , location very close to main shopping area hotels restaurants and shops. Only real concern was on the neon sign displayed at the front of the motel, stated free Foxtel (Austar) Tv and movie channels ! This was not the case 2 sports channels a cartoon channel and some other variety thing. Felt it was deceptive advertising but was too late in the night to bother reception. Overall may stay there again but did find it overpriced at 140 dollars a night could have stayed at opal cove resort right on the beach for 110 but a bit further out of town, other then that not too bad for a overnight stay.

    « It is what it is »

    The motel is an older style motel but the rooms are clean and have all the essentials. The kids used the pool and it was crystal clear. The staff member checking us in was pleasant and welcoming (we didn't have a booking). The bathroom had been refurbished relatively recently. We were at the back of the motel and there was very little traffic noise. All in all a good overnight stop on our way south.

    « excellent service »

    It was a late afternoon booking on our travels and I couldnt have asked for a better Receptionist. Lovely, friendly and very helpful in getting our camper trailer parked so we could go site seeing the following day. Also gave information on what food would be available at that time of the evening and also the next day rang a resturant, that was across the road, to find out for us if it was open. Clean tidy and well presented Motel with very comfortable beds. Excellent

    « Not a happy customer »

    Was a bit expensive but the room was nice we paid cash for what we used and got charged $185.00 for s night not happy I'll think twice about staying there again unless I get a cheaper price like I was told

    « Best Western Zebra Coffs Harbour »

    Nice clean comfortable motel, good location stayed overnight receptionist was a wealth if information and on the ball.. Pricey for a motel where you could get a hotel room on gold coast for an extra $70.00 being the new year break.

    « Great for Business Travelers »

    I travel throughout the State and always enjoy my stay at Coffs, the staff are always friendly and will provide great advice when asked, at one point they even contacted several other Hotels on my behalf whilst travelling, when they were booked out. Rooms are very spacious and Clean.

    « Comfortable Stay »

    I used to stay here when traveling through on business but brought the family this time. Staff have not changed in that they are always helpful. The rate is great for a family of 5. Beds are comfortable and the rooms are clean. Main road location has so its good and bad points (highway noise however we could put up with it and we are light sleepers, but is on the highway so very easy to get in and out of). When heading to Coffs Harbour or through, it has been my first choice.

    « Good highway overnight stop »

    A good overnight stop in Coffs Harbour for travellers along the Pacific Highway. The room was clean and comfortable and the bathroom had been renovated and was well appointed for this type of motel. The much advertised restaurant and bar (signs and in-room material) was closed because the Chef had resigned, so no meals or other room service was available. Outdoor pool looked inviting but wasn't tested!

    « Don't judge by the outside »

    Unsure when checked in, exterior tired and dated. Rooms fully renovated including bathroom. Exceptionally clean and functional including free wifi. Pleasant and helpful staff at reception. Quite expensive guessing as in peak period.

    « No surprises exactly as described, room better than expected actually »

    perfect for a quick overnight business trip - centrally located, everything was there that was needed. Tidy, clean etc. No complaints at all. Nothing further to add as I was there for less than 12 hours!

    « Perfect half way stay when travelling North or South »

    Very comfortable and convenient to the main shopping area. I regularly stay at the Zebra BW, as I find the staff pleasant and helpful. Excellent Wifi to address those emails whilst travelling during the day. Highly recommend.

    « Great value »

    Travelling regularly for business its always nice to be able to rely on continuous performance and service form the Best Western Zebra from a Motel always friendly clean groups the bar has its own atmosphere

    « Clean friendly accommodation close to the centre of town »

    Clean and tidy with most (maybe all but I've only stayed in few?) recently renovated. The rooms I have stayed in are spacious and have queen bed and small dining table plus desk and lounge. WiFi is excellent and free. The restaurant has been good when I have tried it but has been closed on my last couple of visits. However it's close to town and some reasonable eateries.

    « Our Four Nights Stay »

    We loved our stay--the staff were very helpful, friendly, and happy!! Also the room was clean, and roomy, with everything we wanted for a very relaxing and enjoyable stay in a GREAT Motel !!! We will definitely be back to stay !! Highly recommend you choose this Motel if you want a great holiday...

    « Feeling ripped off »

    Stayed overnight in Coffs Harbour to break up a trip usually we stay at Toreodor motel ( $95 for overnight) but they were full Stayed at best western Zebra up the road was charged $190 for one night. excessive pricing for a very very basic room considering a) the TV did not have access to all local channels so could not watch the news b) only 2 teabags for 3 of us and only 2 bath towels C) curtains were worn in places and randomly let light in D) single bed was not comfortable Would not recommend this place as it is poor value for money On the plus side the shower was great

    « Friendliest Place on the coast »

    The room here are lovely rooms and staff are even lovelier. The beds are very comfortable, always a plus when away from home for work. The bathroom fittings are modern and the shower head is a true rainfall style, so awesome. I always look forward to my stay here!

    « Our Amazing Stay »

    I cannot say enough good things about this motel. It is great, with new beds, new linen, sparkling bathrooms, new carpets it is great. This was one of the most comfortable rooms we have stayed in lately. Small mini bar and the usual coffee and tea set-up. Well done. Very well done. Liz, who works the Front Desk is the most helpful person I have run into in ages. She spent a lot of time on the phone and the internet helping me to secure our next room in Newcastle. She is so nice and so good at her job, it is amazing. The hotel is close to a shopping mall - 5 minute walk. Also close to cafes and shops. Good parking for the car. Very nice pool facility. Easy access off motorway and very easy to get back on. There is a small amount of road noise but nothing to worry about, very quiet at night for sure, noise picked up in the morning as did the traffic, all to be expected. Super place. I would stay again.

    « Good Accommodation »

    This is a good standard of motel. The bathroom was well appointed with modern appliances and had an excellent walk in shower. The bedroom was large with a king size bed which was incredibly comfortable with lovely fresh clean bedding. The furniture is basic but very serviceable with table and chairs to sit and eat a meal at, a lovely sofa and a kitchen area. Air conditioning was good and not noisy, and the free wifi worked perfectly. We were pleasantly surprised. An excellent motel for travellers passing through Coffs Harbour, though its not situated right by the harbour.

    « Micah Fearn »

    I stay here quite often with the boys from work once a week as we work on the highway so coming here to an amazing shower after a long day is great! And liz is just a superstar she is so friendly and nothing is too much to ask she makes our stay that much friendlier :) the beds are great rooms are just perfect ! Keep up the good work zebras :)

    « Craig Caloundra »

    Good location walking distance to restaurants,shops rooms where clean,free WiFi and ok speed and on arrival we where greeted by a friendly receptionist which is always a good start to your stay and would recommend anytime for a short stay the Zebra Best Western Coffs.

    « Top notch »

    I stayed in a king bedded room which was really nice and very modern it had everything that's needed for a rep free quick access to wifi as a well back supported business chair and table were I can do all my work that's needed. As well the beds are very comfortable and the bathrooms are nice with a modern basin in it and I think has been recently renovated. I really recommend this place it was a great stay and oh and as well the staff were very friendly.

    « My stay over at the Zebra »

    Being a country sales rep, I'm away usually 4 nights per week.I've been staying at the Zebra for many years. It's like a home away from home to me. The staff are great & very friendly & a fantastic asset to the Hotel. I alwats get a warm welcome at the Zebra & any requests are never a problem for Samret's staff. The rooms are always spotless & very comfy beds. Do yourself a favour & spend a night at the Zebra in Coffs Harbour. Billy....

    « Best Western's Best! »

    We travelled down from the Gold Coast and decided to stay at Coffs Harbour. Upon arrival the receptionist was very friendly & no request was to much to ask for. We asked for a quiet room near the back which we got. Fast Wifi and a pool was great. Unfortunately, the restaurant was closed until further notice, but we had an esky with our own food, and it was no trouble for me to heat it up in the kitchen while chatting. Even my dishes were done! Thank you so much for making us feel so very welcome!!

    « team best western »

    Had booking at b w parkview requiring lower ground. They couldn't meet booking and asked if vacancy at b w zebra. Yes. Zebra staff helpful and welcoming. Rooms in process of upgrading. Thankfully a possible major hurdle was walked around thanks zebra for your welcome.

    « Rep's review. »

    I have enjoyed staying at this motel for over 8 years now. The reasons I like to stay are the friendly staff first and fore most, comfortable beds, clean rooms and ease of entering and exiting the motel. As it is in the centre of Coffs Harbour it is a great "base of operations" for me to do my job from. Also having strong and reliable Wi-Fi for end of day emails etc. is very important which this motel delivers tenfold. In summary I will be staying here ongoing well into the future. Thanks to management and staff.

    « Very good and very affordable »

    Was a very pleasant place to stay nice clean rooms also very nice shower and staff were extremely friendly close to everything in coffs city will stay there again next time I visit made our weekend away much better

    « Deluxe Room???? »

    Booked the deluxe room which had a partially renovated bathroom, new tiles and shower screen and a very cheap toilet suite, but didn't bother with changing the towel rails etc, the mouldy ceiling needed the paint brush a long time ago.

    I would recommend this place to whomever is passing by. It's definitely my home away from home, from the front receptionists who welcome you with a bubbly and happy attitude to the excellent rooms which are superb clean and tidy and also have been recently renovated. The beds are so comfortable I feel like I'm sleeping on pillows my wife and I will be definitely coming here again this is the spot for Coffs for sure.

    « Great place to stay in Coffs »

    The rooms were refurbished, clean and convenient and staff were pleasant and helpful. The location is near town and close to the harbour, and is easy to find. Unfortunately the restaurant was not open. But we would still recommend Zebra.

    « Newly renovated Motel Suite Rooms »

    The Best Western Zebra Motel is conveniently located near town center. The rooms have been ungraded and looked comfortable with a king-sized bed. The bathroom has been updated with a large shower head. Free basic wi-fi is included. Unfortunately, the Zulu restaurant was closed for renovation, so we have to go elsewhere for dinner. Overall, a clean updated room for a short stop-over.
