Our History

The Jetty (or Pier) was built in 1892 along with timber mills in the Jetty area, bringing a need for a Hotel to serve refreshing beverages and hearty food as well as provide a comfortable bed for workmen. The Pier Hotel was built in 1905, and has long been one of Coffs most recognizable landmarks.

In the early days, the Hotel also catered for weary travellers who journeyed by land and sea up & down Australia’s East Coast before guests took off on their next leg of their travel adventures. It was also a favourite holiday destination for tourists travelling by horse from as far afield as Bellingen and Dorrigo.

Following the Hotel’s destruction by fire in 1914, the Proprietor of the time, William Mann rebuilt the Hotel to cater for sea-loving visitors and for those who wished to inhale the health giving ozone or contemplate an early morning plunge in the surf (before 1902 it was illegal to swim in the surf in daylight hours).

The Hotel’s Manager, Mr Taylor, owned a couple of motor boats and conducted tours of the prolific snapper grounds where good catches were said to be the rule.

The friendly personable service has remained unchanged for more than a Century, ensuring the Pier Hotel is still one of the most popular pubs on the Coffs Coast.

“I think the Pier has a life all of its own. It’s iconic and it’s certainly the best location in Coffs Harbour for a Hotel, right on the Jetty strip with sea views. The Hotel rooms were refurbished in 2014 to stunning boutique accommodation standard. And with the newly opened rustic wine bar overlooking the jetty strip activity and the expansive Terrace bar at the back of the hotel, it is an ideal venue for group stays, parties and professional functions alike,” said Warren Skinner, the owner since 2007.

Room was modern design with light colour palate and quality finishes. Our room looked to have been recently renovated and was in prime condition. The room became a little smaller once we opened our bags but still easy to get around. Ensuite was lovely and hot water was very hot. Water pressure was brilliant. A great place for an overnight stay. While the hotel has good casual dining there is also a small dining strip next door for those wanting other options. A thoroughly recommendablemhotel.

The schnitzel was good, but it didn't come with salad. The atmosphere is nice, happy and welcoming in these tense times.

Oh what an absolute gem of a pub this is! We were recommended this pub and were not let down. Is this the East Coasts biggest secret? Greeted on arrival by friendly smiling helpfull staff we were led up to our room via the grand old stairway. The room was stylish, clean, came with an ensuite, and Quiet! Upon dinner time we had a couple of delightful wines beside the enchanting fireplace in an extremely modern cosy wine bar ,next door to the public bar. I must say this hotel has an amasing selection of fantastic reasonably priced wine. Then to dinner and the eye fillet is definately world class. I cant find a steak this good anywhere . I travel all over Australia on a weekly basis and I can assure anyone that this hotel is absolutely top notch. We will be back.

Room was clean, staff were friendly and helpful, free shuttle to and from the airport, we flew up from Sydney for the Elton a John concert and the hotel even provided a shuttle service for us to the gig free of charge. That were very helpful and the place was exactly what I expected. Would stay there again, next time we are in Coffs

Great service, excellent food and awesome wine selection, live bands too it's a perfect old style pub with heaps of tap beers and non smoking in the entire building so it doesn't smell. Definitely a win for coffs harbour.

Hadn't been here for a while but found that the venue was very clean and had a great vibe. Staff were all friendly and prompt to serve on the bar and picking up used glasses. Live music, food, drinks and great atmosphere. Would highly recommend!

Great old pub. There are options for everyone here. They have the front public bar, sports bar/dining area and a bistro area up a few steps with a great view. There is also a nice quiet bar area on the left hand side of the front entrance. Very impressed with how the place looks and the atmosphere was excellent. Plenty of parking out front and out back.
