Neat and clean comfortable beds very peaceful. Short drive into Coffs which has everything that you would need. Pool was great and short walk to beach. BBQ area well stocked and... More

Stayed recently in a 1 br apartment on the first floor with my teenage son. It was clean and well equipped with a balcony overlooking the pool. The ocean and beach is only a short stroll away and you can hear the waves washing in at night which is a nice way to relax. Located just a few minutes drive... More

My family stayed at Smugglers early January. We were traveling and our son became quite ill, so we took him to Coffs Harbour Hospital. After about 5 hours in the emergency room we made the decision that we would need to find accommodation for the night. I rang Smugglers at about 7pm and was connected to the after hours booking...

My Fiancé and I stayed at Smugglers for a week during early January. Our apartment was both spacious and quiet. Although you couldn't really see the beach which is only a short 2 min walk away, you could definitely hear the waves through out the day and night which was beautiful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay as its location was... More

Clean and quiet apartment with comfortable above average furnishings. A lovely quiet beach just behind the surrounding trees, loved the sound of the waves from our room. The staff were friendly, helpful and welcoming. Would definitely stay again.

Was very pleasantly surprised at the quality, cleanliness of this accommodation. Would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to either stop over or stay at Coffs! Great pool area and beach within 100 metres of our room - fantastic.

The staff are very friendly, & we were upgraded from a 2 bedroom to a 3 bedroom with spa. It was spotlessly clean & the kitchen was fully equipped. All apartments in the complex have the same kitchen fittings. The BBQ area which was connected to the pool surrounds was fully equipped down to condiments & paper towels. The resort... More

My family and I stayed this past week at Smugglers on the beach in a 2 bed apartment. The units were extremely clean, and relatively modern. The kitchen had quite a good range of equipment to use to cook, (only missing pizza pans for the oven) and we had a good sized bbq on the balcony. The unit was spacious... More

I regularly stay at Smugglers on my business trips to the Coffs Coast. My wife has tried to book me into other accommodation on more than one occasion, however on the last trip she accompanied me on what was to be a three day trip and was so impressed she changed it into a five day sojourn and invited her...
