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.
