Our Reviews

We broke down in Coffs Harbour on the way North and needed a place to stay at the last minute. The staff booked us in and allowed us late check out. The family room was very spacious for our family and very clean. It's a perfect place to stop on a roadtrip or stay while visiting Coffs Harbour.
Nice experience, clean room and great breakfast. First time I have stayed there, after staying in many others in Coffs over the years and I will certainly stay there again.The gardens and surrounds are very peaceful, despite the proximity of the highway. Truely a hidden gem!The night I stayed the restaurant was unfortunately closed, however it looks really great, with a cosy looking bar in the corner.I will have to go back, just to enjoy a couple of ales at the bar.
The customer service at the front desk was amazing. You feel very welcomed with all you can eat breakfast. TheChef made us a banana white choc muffins just for us.
What a great experience , just spent 2 days here , rooms are really big and clean, and the lady reception was amazing and made you feel so welcome, would definitely recommend.
From the time I arrived Marie on reception made me feel so welcome, such a lovely genuine lady & host.I have worked in customer service my whole life and the Sanctuary Resort should be so proud to have her working there.What a gem 🙌🏽😃👏🏽 THANKYOU AGAIN 💎Adam 🏍
Fantastic stay, very friendly staff delicious meal in restaurant,very comfortable room , would highly recommend this as a relaxing place to stay.
Room was clean. Even though Sanctuary Resort is on the highway, the noise was muffled & doesn't impact on your life.The reception was pleasant, friendly & helpful.The location was perfect for me, next door to Watson's Caravans.
Nice clean rooms and great staff.
The rooms were clean, service was great and parking was very easy, will definitely be staying again
Really affordable twin share rooms. Easy checkin and checkout experience.Rooms usually face parking for the room, there is an additional overflow if needed.Close to food and shops.Pool is awesome.
We stayed there last night it was great room and bed and the room was so great really enjoyed staying there will definitely go back
I was very impressed with the friendliness of the Reception and the clean and tidy room. Very comfortable bed and very little noise from the highway, I will stay there again for sure.
We stayed for the night, had a lovely spacious room, clean, friendly staff, lovely grounds and great convenient location..great price and great value for money.. would definitely return.. totally recommend
We just finished two nights here room clean to a high standard neat and tidy added bonus of a small balcony with nice view of garden area. Would be hard to find a better place in this price point with large pool bbq area tennis court. Onsite restaurant plus unbelievably nice staff nothing was to much if you asked.
We stayed with family and had a great time making good use of the lovely pool, restaurant and bar. I would definitely recommend staying here. Monique and Tim are fantastic managers and hosts! They care about their customers and the success of the motel and will go above and beyond to cater for your needs.
Lovely grounds.Monique, Tim and Staff were the perfect hosts.They went over and beyond to accommodate our family. Restaurant was great and food excellent.Thank you so much. We will be Back!! :)Lynette and Michael and Co.

I stayed for 1 night about a month ago forgot to review then, was really impressed with the service from the fella in reception trying to sort out an Afterpay issue, room was large and clean nice big clean pool, restaurant on site, iam a regular traveller to coffs so this will be my first choice.
Response from the owner: Thanks Scott
We hosted our company Christmas Party at the Treehouse Restaurant and we could not be happier. Tim & Monique are the ultimate hosts, and all the staff were lovely. Nothing is too hard, they went above and beyond to ensure we had a great night. Pool was a highlight for the kids. Food was delicious and they were generously sized meals. Wonderful family environment. Surrounds are beautiful and private, it's hard to believe you're so close to the middle of town. Highly recommend and we will definitely be back!
Response from the owner: Thanks Kue
We stayed in this motel last night and was pleasantly surprised at what they offered for the price we paid. A massive outdoor pool, lovely well keep grounds and although it is on the highway, it is up a hill and we did not hear any of the highway traffic at all.The room was quite large with a king bed and modern bathroom, very clean and well presented.The owner was very relaxed on our arrival and welcoming, so nice to arrive at a lovely motel after a long days drive.
Response from the owner: Thanks Lyn
We came up and stayed there last weekend for the OzTag tournament. The accommodation was beautiful, room was clean. Staff were very friendly and accomodating. We had dinner and breakfast at the restaurant which we enjoyed. We also loved the dog there called Muriel. I must say the place was affordable and close to the amenities we needed. Also not too far away from the shopping centre. We will definitely be happy to stay there again.
Response from the owner: Glad you enjoyed your stay Mary
Response from the owner: Thanks Hommie
We were very happy with our experience. Close to highway, but surrounded by tropical rainforest. The woman at reception was very efficient, her dog was very cute, they upgraded us for no reason to a lovely room with everything you could need for a stop on your journey. Would definitely return.
Response from the owner: Thanks Grace
We had a wonderful overnight stay at Sanctuary Resort Motel. It suited our needs perfectly. We also ate at the restaurant and the food was very nice. We experienced friendly and prompt service and the managers were very helpful. We would definitely stay again. We didn't have time to swim but there is a pool and nice gardens. Thanks
Response from the owner: Thanks Lisa great to meet you and Brendan glad you enjoyed your stay Tim & Mon
