Very plain, converted 70's retro-unit brick block; cleanliness, average. The little extra's in the kitchen - enough garbage bags, washing up liquid, cloths etc - are well thought out, although the cleaning up rules are a bit stringent as is the coin operated – you pay - laundry. Some nice thoughtful touches like little jam biscuits and the general ambiance of calm and cleanliness is superb; the shower lovely.
The grounds and gardens are gorgeous and the BBQ and pool area really giving a truly homely feeling for people to spend time (like family). The Tahitian is in a lovely quiet location far from the highway, albeit not in comfortable walking distance to much more than the beach. You will need a car to get about.
Foxtel movies are free and we really enjoyed the lovely hot spa on a rainy evening.
The owners are friendly and reception is open longer than other places giving a flexible check-in time.
There is no lift or disabled access, only a flight of narrow stairs to the rooms. The beds - although clean - left my nose blocked in the morning. Perhaps the doona’s and pillows should be put in the sun on the balcony every now and then for natural disinfecting; the mattresses aired, vacuumed and freebreezed? The mattresses are comfortable enough, although the single bed in room 23 (under the window) has a huge dip in it, like a giant has slept in it.
Take your own soap, because there isn't nearly enough guest soap and new towels are not given daily, nor the rooms made up. Shampoo and conditioner are in one. However, the apartment is a decent size for what you pay and well appointed. This is not a luxurious place, but certainly one to consider when travelling on a budget, although we have paid similar and stayed in much better elsewhere, that is the fault of Coffs Harbour, more than the Tahitian itself; which is well priced and good quality in comparison to its peers.
