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...

Quite a nice place to stay with friendly staff and quite a good location. Can be quite noisy with sounds travelling into rooms from stairwells and car pars as well as the nearby train line. Great location with an easy walk to the Jetty area for restaurants and bars. Bathrooms are tired and a bit musty. Nice views from studio...

This is our second visit here. It is so conveniently located to the jetty harbour and the gorgeous restaurant strip. The units are faultless in their cleanliness and amenities. The staff are always friendly and helpful. A great place for a couple escape or a family getaway.

Reviewed 4 July 2016 via mobile

We stayed in a 3 br apartment, bedrooms on one level, living quarters upstairs. The open kitchen/dining/lounge with balcony was spacious and comfortable. Main criticism is that the pipes were so noisy on the bedroom level that if anyone flushed the toilet or turned on taps it seemed to echo loudly in the walls.
