Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Too rainy for the beach on our annual holiday so we booked for our family group of 7 to this small, but totally wonderful aquarium. The host/guide was so incredibly knowledgeable and funny, and we learned so much about the local fish life of Coffs. It was also a wonderful reminder about the importance of caring for the sea and its importance in our lives. I would highly recommend this lovely place.

    Stopped in for breakfast. Happy staff who looked after is. The owners son gave a history lesson the factory. Chocolate coated bannanas and honeycomb toffee. Well worth a visit

    My husband and myself went to visit the butterfly house today. We were very impressed with the whole experience. There were many types of beautiful butterflies in the very well maintained enclosure. One beautiful blue one was transferred to us to have on our arm ! Many little ornaments and little sayings were scattered throughout the area … making it even more colourful for grownups and fun for kids. We loved that we could go in and out … have a lovely scone with jam and cream … then return for another look at the butterflies. The cafe was beautifully decorated with colourful plants and Alice in Wonderland decor. Even though we didn’t have our grandchildren with us, we thought we’d check out the dinosaur exhibition. Our grandkids would love it … with moving and roaring dinosaurs, a rainforest setting complete with steam and a crashed plane and jeep and a dinosaur show ! Congratulations on a thoroughly entertaining attraction that has something for everyone !

    Certainly as advertised. Plenty of cartoons to look at from all over the world but definitely with some local contributions. Had a good laugh at a few of them that is for sure. Went in with low expectations as I was never a cartoon fan but left with a smile and happy to have visited.

    I stopped off briefly on my journey south from Brisbane. It caught my eye as I was driving down the highway and the urge for a drink and a late lunch took the better of me.

    Well, there was ample free parking around what appeared to be a normal shopping mall. And that is, indeed what this place is. I wandered around a bit inside, found a place to eat and made use of the clean restrooms. There were a good number of shops and one big supermarket. Other than that, not a lot to write home (or to you, Tripadvisor) about.

    Standard shopping centre in the heart of Coffs with plenty of parking across the road. There’s a KMart in the centre as well as plenty of variety shops.

    If you are staying in the area, your go to provisions destination especially if you require food and clothing. Plenty of on-site parking and a very large selection of shops, almost everything you could need. Good selection of food and beverage outlets. Large centre but very roomy and easy to get around.

    This museum is located on a main road, however there is parking onsite by driving into the street adjacent to the museum. There are lots of photos, display items and information relating to Coffs history thru the rooms of the house. The history of South Solitary Island lighthouse is also well covered from a history point and display items. A feature is the film on the local cinema history. Well worth a visit.

    Recently I had both a facial and foot treatment with Annika-May and both were fantastic! I was blown away by her professionalism and warm, friendly and caring approach. I cannot wait to come back for another treatment.

    We visited Artisti today to purchase a new machine. We were referred to Artisti by a very passionate Italian friend and we were not disappointed by his recommendation.

    We went looking for a long-term, high quality purchase that wouldn't end up being landfill after a few years, and we cannot recommend Artisti enough. (Added bonus - they also service machines - thrilled to have found them).

    We were greeted at the front door by such a genuinely enthusiastic staff member - he was a breath of fresh air. He chatted to us about what we were after, and easily referred us on to a more experienced staff member when he didn't know all the details we were looking for.

    PS that short black was absolutely amazing, thank you! (Make sure you pop in for your espresso fix if you're ever in the area - the single origin Ethiopian beans are incredible).

    We were so impressed by the genuine people, and the honesty of the staff - they truly wanted to help us choose the right machine - not just make a sale. We left with an absolutely beautiful Quick Mill Rubino, a bag of Artisti beans and we cannot wait to book in a training session to learn how to properly use our new toy.

    Many thanks for your help today. We're so glad to have found a business who truly cares about their customers.

    I was gifted the Pohaku Hot Stone Ritual Massage, it was truly amazing and Katie that did mine was awesome, going to book another one, worth every cent. All the staff at Tranquility are thoughtful, caring and put you, the customer at the centre of attention

    After my initial visit to the day spa which I was not happy with, the manager then went out of her way to offer me a complimentary second visit and I was left feeling completely happy and satisfied after the second visit. Great customer service.
