a great apartment..just moments from a great strip of cafes. A short walk to the pier and if you want to stretch the legs a little further, carry on walking to mutton bird island. Close to the beaches. Really helpful and super friendly staff was happy and greeted us with nice smiley faces :-) We were there tp do an... More

We rented a studio apartment on the 3rd floor for an extended period. The 5 star service started when we first made an enquiry about availability. The level of service never faltered during our stay. The room was exceptionally clean( a big tick to the cleaning staff) with the same level continuing through the common areas and the shared laundry... More

Stepped off the train and walked straight into the clean and comfortable room but then opened the curtain on an extensive view across the harbour, jetty Mutton Bird Island and out to sea. A great stay for a couple of days, thanks Neil and his friendly team nothing was a problem. Just being one block from the busy restaurant strip... More

8 of us rented over Easter this year 2 three bedroom apartments, these were clean, both had decks which looked over the railway station and passenger drop off area, but faces East so as you get the morning sun. Though on a rise the 3bedroom apartments did not seem to have much of a view. The bedrooms downstairs just large... More

We arrived on a long weekend, without a booking, and were given a 2 bedroom apartment even though there were only two of us. Other places would have held off waiting for a family. We can honestly say the apartment was very spacious, two large rooms and a large living area & kitchen. Would definitely suit a family of 4... More

Stayed here just for one night, in town on business. This place came with a recommendation so I thought I would give it a go. Whilst I was on my own, I ended up in a two bedroom unit. Fully self contained with all the essentials you would need if on a family holiday. Great unit for a family, not... More

Thank you for your lovely review and as we always try to accommodate all of our corporate guests, both new and returning and only have 4 studio apartments, which are booked so far in advance, for last minute bookings we discount our 2 bedroom apartments for just one person.

This is a basic holiday unit where a small family or a few friends can base themselves while exploring Coffs. The location is near the cafe strip but you need to drive to get to the beach or jetty. It has good amenities, although simple, and the views from the upstairs balcony are nice. There are staircases to get upstairs,... More
