About Bananatown

Anyone looking for an overnight stopover between Sydney and Brisbane may consider Bananatown. Located around about half way between the two cities, this basic motel is just off the highway in the heart of Coffs Harbour.

The 13 en-suite bedrooms may not be deluxe, but have all the bare essentials for a good night sleep and energising shower before heading back out. They are all air-conditioned with free Wi-Fi and DVD players. The tea and coffee making facilities and microwaves are also welcome to help prepare a well-needed refreshment or snack after hours on the road.

Bananatown has adequate onsite parking, a swimming pool and 24-hour reception.

There is a barbecue and picnic area onsite, with a nice selection of restaurants to choose from nearby.

Guests are within a 15-minute walk of most of Coffs Harbour's main attractions, including its golf course and botanical gardens.

Positive Reviews

Good location

Just pull off the highway and park your car outside this motel and you'll have all the attractions of Coffs harbour within your grasp. Guests travelling from or to Sydney appreciate the central location of this motel.

Comfortable enough for a stop-over

If you're driving a long way and need somewhere to lay your head for the night, this motel could fit your bill. Guests say it has all you need for a one night stay: the beds are comfortable and there is plenty of hot water and good water pressure for a nice invigourating shower. As a bonus, you have a microwave in your room too.

Friendly staff

Guests often praise the friendly nature of the staff at this motel.

Negative Reviews

A filthy hole

Guests are frequently disgusted by the level of cleanliness of the motel. There is mould in the showers and layers of dust on the furniture. To top it all off, rubbish is often swept under the bed!

A massive rip-off

Not only is the hotel over-priced, you may find yourself being charged a lot more than the establishment advertises. Drivers, weary after hours at the wheel, with little other choice available feel forced to pay up - and in advance too. Guests feel that the place is vastly overpriced (even at the advertised rate) and that this decaying establishment is not worth it - even if you are desperate. Many say they wouldn't stay there again if it was the only place available in town.

Noisy neighbours

If you're lucky, you'll just have the constant noise of the highway to sleep through. If you're not so fortunate, you may have to content with disturbances from delinquent neighbours and fellow residents partying into the night.
