Smugglers on the Beach
Ranked #6 of 40 Hotels in Coffs Harbour
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 3, 2012

It was the perfect holiday,just a couple of minute from the centre of Coffs and a 50m walk to the beach,or you could swim in the pool while others cooked the bbq in the outdoor cooking area that has all the equipment required without using anything from your rooms, l was very surprised that there was so much to see and do in the area.
We spent 7 days and did not see it all,so we have booked in again next year for 10 day at the same time and can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: room 15 very quiet perfect room for a family.

Stayed for 3 nights while travelling on the east coast, and can find nothing negative to say, or anything to suggest which could have improved our stay.

Accommodation was spotless, beds clean and comfy, and everything provided for a few days stay (washing up liquid, kitchen and loo roll, washing powder etc.). Staff were friendly and helpful, supermarkets and restaurants a short drive away, and free laundry facilities a bonus. Fabulous quiet beach a minutes walk from the door.

Would definitely return if in the area, and recommend unreservedly.

Room Tip: We chose a first floor room overlooking the garden, and really enjoyed having a balcony with table a...

As we arrived after hours, we were impressed that Smugglers, had access info/keys arranged.
We had been up-graded to a deluxe unit, so we were thankful of that.
They have a great shared BBQ, and outdoor cooking area associated with the pool.
The location is in Forrest/bush area, although the property in very close to suburbia.
We saw bush turkeys, and many other birds. Its also very close to the ocean/beach.
The kitchen and provided tools,were better than expected.
Staff were very helpful, when asked for assistance.

We have stayed in the same units 2 years in a row and we are very happy. Would definately stay again. The units are always clean and tidy, and staff are available to answer any questions. Located very close to local attractions and shopping centres makes it very appealing.

Our 2 year old son enjoyed playing in the garden and in the todler pool. We enjoyed having a BBQ dinner by the pool and listening to the ocean. Direct beach access was handy. It was also very convenient having our car parked directly in front of our room so that we did not have to carry all of our luggage, porta-cot etc far. Overall we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
