Large comfortable apartment overlooking the swimming pool. Quiet surroundings. Short walk to the beach. Staff were helpful and friendly telling us that the laundry if needed, was free of charge. Would we stay there again. Yes, of course. Great place to stay and enjoy a great holiday.

We enjoyed walks on the beach morning noon and afternoon, followed by an ocean swim and sometimes a dip in the well maintained pool. It was perfect, everything we had hoped for. The perfect place to enjoy a holiday, with plenty to do nearby.

The apartments were quiet and right next to the beach. They also had everything you needed. Beds were comfortable. They had a nice pool in the apartments grounds. But Unfortunately I didn't get the time to go for a swim. They had a laundry in the apartment block - washing machine and dryer were free. There were also free DVDs...

The hotel is very clean and well kept. The unit had everything you need and only minutes to the beautiful beach. Short drive to Park Beach Plaza and Coffs Harbour Jetty and plenty of cafes and restaurants if you decide not to cook.

Excellent location and spacious apartment. This place is great for the family holiday. It's away from the main town making it very quiet. All I can here are waves crashing and fans turning. The set up is simple but it has everything you need. I would definitely come back and stay again.

My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights and we had a beautiful stay. The property is right next to the beach and the room had everything we needed. The pool area was very tropical and clean. Thanks for a nice time.

The hotel is beachfront, so location was great. However, the building has poor noise insulation, we could hear the people upstairs walking around, turning taps, having shower, flushing toilet, so best to bring along your earplugs for night time.

You know whats its like. You troll through endless hours of internet time looking for somewhere to stay, you find one and its booked out or one looks great and its miles from the beach, or the photos were taken when it was built 20 years ago and looks nothing like it when you get there? or it stinks like...

Just north of Coffs, this quiet beachside apartment had everything we needed. We even caught fish from the beach, making for a great meal. We loved being away from the highway and the cramped hotels in the city centre. You will need a car though for staying at Smugglers.

Thank markev4
