Drunken revellers upset moteliers

IRATE accommodation providers at Park Beach are fed up with drunken late-night revellers driving their guests away.

After dark it’s said to be so unsafe and unruly on the beach strip that moteliers are opting out of the industry, selling up and leaving.

One motelier, pushing for an end to all-night bingeing in alcohol-free zones, says the problem is so bad he doesn’t get return visitors.

“I understand completely. I can’t blame them. If I stayed in a motel and couldn’t sleep because of drunks yelling and fighting across the road all night long I wouldn’t go back.”

In fear of reprisals several accommodation providers, who met with the Coffs Coast Advocate yesterday, did not wish to be named.

Instead they want to highlight a meeting that’s being planned at the Park Beach Bowling Club to unite local operators.

From there they hope to tackle the issue with the assistance of police, tourism bodies and Coffs Harbour Council.
