Clean and comfortable. Location is great. Quite area and close to the beach with beautiful scenery. Just a short walk north to a more sandy beach. We will be returning here next time we plan our next holiday to Coffs Harbour. Thanks to Michael for arranging a room for us when we arrived quite early in that day with minimal... More

Excellent location and very comfortable appartments. The staff are welcoming and helpful. The beach and views are spectacular and invite those lovely early morning walks. Best stay we have had in Coffs and will definitely return. The pool is good for adults and there is a kiddies pool adjacent. We enjoyed the spa bath in the room but gave the... More

We found the accomodation very spacious and well equipped. After spending 3 days essentially cooped up in a tiny studio in Byron(weather wasn't their fault) that cost a fair bit more than Smugglers, we were very pleasantly surprised. Great location and beautiful gardens added to an enjoyable stay. Would definitley return.

We stopped over on our drive back from Byron to Sydney. I can see why it has a good rating. It's well priced and it's close to the beach but it's not the ideal place for romantic holidays or travelers looking for a quiet night's sleep. We were after something more high end and with a view since we were... More

Rooms were spacious and very well equipped. Location on the beach is great. Only downsides I could see was that there wasn't any lock or chain on the door to stop children from opening on their own. Location also requires you to cook or drive to coffs

We found Smugglers to be a very pleasant place for a quick trip to catch up with friends. It is in walking distance to a nice little beach where we swam each day and wandered along the sand. The site itself is showing signs of age, but still a good value place to stay.

This was my fifth visit to Smugglers on the Beach and I will definitely be coming again. It is in such a peaceful and quiet location but still an easy drive into town. The apartments are well maintained and the staff are friendly and helpful. I love coming here!

What a great find this place was, and it was purely by chance. It is away from the main area of town (approx 10 minutes). We had a two bedroom apartment which was upstairs (Two level apartments) with its own full length deck, BBQ, and table with seats. The unit was fully fitted out with full kitchen including dishwasher. Double... More
