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...

We weren't sure of where to stay and happened upon this hotel. What an unexpected surprise! We stayed in a 3 bedroom with kitchen. Lovely art, clean throughout, staff was helpful and only a few minutes walk to the beautiful private beach. Cooking facilities are also offered outside by the pool which was lovely. Nice patio with table and chairs... More

If you love the beach, it is at your doorstep. Management was very helpful and I was grateful to be able to wash after 5 days on the road. The rooms are clean and tastefully refurbished. Although a little bit out of the way, value for money with the beach so very close. Michelle & Brendan (QLD)

I was in Coffs Harbour for work and selected this hotel on the strength of Trip Advisor reviews, as I was looking for something clean, comfortable and on the beach. I was upgraded to a 2 bedroom unit with a spa as the room I had booked had not been cleaned properly - there were wet towels in the bathroom,... More

We stayed here for 5 nights , finishing yesterday. Had a great time. Unit was great (2 Bedrooms) and the pool and outdoor BBQ facilities were great. Will definitely be back again. Kids had a ball and everything is pretty close to Coffs, but you may need a car. Close to the beach and a relative nice walk to Diggers... More

We stayed here for 3 nights, we had initially booked a 1 bedroom apartment but ended up with a 2 bedroom. We didn't require the extra bedroom, but the apartment as a whole was very spacious. We were on the second floor and had slight water views through the trees as well as a nice view of the pool area.... More

After reading all the reviews, decided to go for this place for a 3 night stay in the 1 bedroom apartment. In turn out of The best choice in made. It is located just 150 meters from a beach, its like a private beach because its away from the crowd. At night, enjoy the cool breeze and listen to the... More
