Have been staying here for many years when visiting Coffs Harbour and the standard is maintained always. Not the most modern but roomy and clean. Walking distance to everything. The hosts could not do more for you. Undercover parking. What more could you ask for.

Welcome was warm and friendly. We only stayed a couple of nights but everything was neat and comfortable. Ideally situated for restaurants, the jetty and the markets. We will definitely choose to come next year.

We recently stayed here for 3 nights. We had a unit on the top floor, with a good view over the harbour area. There is no lift, which is a disadvantage, - but the exercise is good for you carrying the cases up, and climbing up and down the stairs when you go out!. The location is good - with... More

The Observatory Apartments are in very good location, even for the train travelers, its across the road from the station. The staff are excellent people that with go out of their way for you.

Very good people to deal with - booking, check-in, check-out - very pleasant and accommodating. Lovely views, very clean, good beds, well equipped kitchen. Overall a 9 out of 10 - a shower screen instead of curtain and a floor rug in the living room would have made it a 10.

So very glad we picked the Observatory Apartments for our trip to Coffs Harbour. A fantastic location just five minutes from a great restaurant strip. Starting with the Pier Hotel through to some of the best variety of options for great food. Walk to the jetty or beach easily as well. What really impressed us was the warm welcome and... More

Our overnight stay at the Observatory was great. It was well priced, clean and tidy, and tastefully furnished with a great view of the ocean. An additional mirror would be good though. Great location, within walking distance to some great restaurants on the Jetty.

I really enjoyed my one night stay at the Observatory Holiday Apartments. The one bedroom studio (with spa bath) was equipped with everything you could need - plenty of towels, a comfortable bed, and a good sized TV. I really enjoyed lounging in the lovely spa bath. The views from the apartment could not be beaten. The location is also... More
