My family and I had a three night stay here in the September school holidays. The staff were lovely, our rooms spotless, within walking distance to restaurants, iga and beach. There were renovations going on whilst we were there but they caused us no concern. All in all, a lovely stay!

Pros: Nice view from level 3 and 4, friendly staff, good location (right beside train station), bath robes. Cons: No lifts, guests in BBQ area echoed right up through building - incredibly loud, getting a bit worn and tired.

Hi Michael, thanks for your review. Please remember we live on site and are only a phone call away if you are experiencing any issues (such as noise from the BBQ area). Unfortunately to install lifts, all of the top studio apartments would need to be removed. At the moment we are having the outside painted, and changes to the...

I stayed 2 nights with my kids. The Apartment was spotless and comfortable. We were upgraded to a 2 bedroom spa apartment. The pool is quite small, and I imagine would be packed in Summer. There is some painting being done outside, and the manager gave us 'Cold Rock Icecream' voucher for any inconvenience, although we hardly knew they were...

Great location easy walk to restaurants and beach, reception staff extremely friendly and helpful. Two bedroom apartment large and clean, plenty of space, with sea views. Not overly soundproof. Undercover parking available.

The apartments were large and clean. We had all the amenities including WiFi and laundry. The apartments are located within walking distance of the beach and restaurants. The apartment we had was sparsely appointed but comfortable. We were there in the winter so it wasn't very crowded.

We stayed in a two bedroom corner apartment on the second floor with views to the harbour and ocean. The apartment was spacious, clean and comfortable and within a short walk to restaurants and bars on the jetty strip and we had undercover parking. The proximity of the railway line could be a problem for light sleepers but didn't worry...

We wanted a place where we could look over the harbour and out to sea which led us to Observatory Apartments. So delighted we did. Spotlessly clean, great views, management very welcoming and helpful and even binoculars so we could watch and enjoy the whales off shore and boats coming in and out the harbour. Comfy beds, handy to a...

If you're looking for a great location in Coff's, check out the Observatory. Well priced and well located, with stunning views of the marina and foreshore, you will find everything you need nearby. We found our two-bedroom unit had everything we needed for a short or long stay. We also checked out the studios and they would be perfect for...

We stayed for one night in a 2 bedroom apartment on the second floor and it was great. We had an amazing view from our balcony and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The apartments are a short walk from lots of restaurants and the Jetty Markets and a short driving to shopping centres and other attractions. We will...
