We stayed as a family in Pacific Towers for about 2 weeks in one of their Bush view apartments on 6th Floor. Apartment spacious as per previous reviews with good provisions in the kitchen, close to a quiet beach and other amenties.
However, the management's only engagement style with us seemed to verge on hostile. All requests met with surly indignation and all other talk met with hostile accusations throughout the stay.
On Christmas day, cooking duck for family and friends - the aforementioned firealarm was set off with the accusations that we were burning stuff in the oven. Fireman called despite clear indications in the oven that there was no burning of the ducks - simply normal cooking with any well-ventilated unit should be able to cope with. (I cook ducks regularly at home with well installed smoke alarms and have yet to set it off in 8 years). Told that fire service would charge $600 for visit despite reassurance from fireman that no such charge would be applied. So beware - this is not really a self-catering apartment - you may not be able to make use of the cooking facilities apart from the microwave before incurring fire alarm charges.
To top it all - they said that we had broken a table leg - presenting no evidence of breakage and a further cleaning charge. Total bill - a whopping $352 taken directly from credit card. Please ensure that your credit card company does not authorise any such payments - usually such behaviour would be called theft.
In other words, find other places in Coffs - which is a lovely breezy town.
