      Very central, reception staff very friendly and extremely helpful. Even though we didn't have a chance to use the pool, tennis court etc they looked great.

      Everything was perfect. Good value. I would recommend to others.

      The only suggestion I have is the bath/shower could be slippery for some people. I feel the base of the bath needs some non skid bars on it.

      Newly refurbished hotel and very centrally located in the town so easy to get everywhere. The cafe is very nice and serves good breakfasts. Lovely staff too.

      There was no hiding the fact that this used to be a motel and therefore I thought it was a bit expensive for what it was. We had problems with our hot water, which was very erratic and on the final morning we had no hot water and had to use another room, it was annoying but the owner was very nice and helpful.

      We got a good price for one night stay. We found it quite private yet close to the beach and shops. The availibility of a DVD player helped us to watch our favourite movie.

      I didn't get to use the swimming pool on arrival due to some fault with the hotwater system (15/5/11). That evening I couldn't use the spa as well. Following morning we found out there was no breakfast served in the restaurant (as it was a Monday I was told).

      We had stayed here some time ago and found it very ordinary. But recently the motel has changed ownership and been given a complete makeover - new bathrooms, flatscreen TV, comfortable beds, nice coffee shop where breakfast was served. There is a heated, covered pool with very nice outdoor lounge-style seating, a BBQ area with lots of seating and a tennis court. Next time we will come better prepared for all this! Although right in the centre of Nelson Bay, the room was very quiet and there's plenty of good restaurants within easy walking distance. A big plus was that when I asked for a room with a king bed at check-in we were given a KIng Deluxe room at no extra charge.

    • Older travelers

      The bed and pillows were comfortable.

      It was extremely noisy being located on a busy street and next to a pub which was open until three am. We stayed in the deluxe spa suite as a treat. It is advertised as luxurious and relaxing and the price was high because of this. It was not relaxing or very luxurious either. When we mentioned the noise to reception they said 'oh really'.

    • Older travelers

      helpfull and plesent staff, clean rooms and good location close to local eateries.

      Staff didn't service the room early in the day and returned when we were resting so room was not serviced at our request

    • Older travelers

      When the front desk staff (Andrew) noted that we were staying for three nights, he offerred us another room with a partial view of the marina. We found out that the room was actually a higher pricied room when we checked out as the billing system revealed a higher rate.

      We were unhappy with the housekeeping service. The 1st day we noticed that the beds were very untidily made as the sheets were not properly tugged in at all on both beds. The pillows were also not re-arranged neatly as they were exactly as we have left them. They also didn't put back the bed covers and cushions but left them chucked untidily on the sofa. It was very unsightly.The 2nd day, we were surprised to find our room unmade after returning in the late afternoon. The reason given was that we had left a 'do not disturb" sign earlier in the morning. However, the sign was removed when we left the hotel around 9.30am. They do not have a "Please make up room" sign. I think that it would be a good idea to have such a sign for the door.

      It was very hot the day and night we stayed but the room was cool because of the air conditioning and the pool was excellent to cool down. The Nelson Resort looking good because it has been updated and the room was clean and comfortable. Where it is situated is the perfect place to go to the beach, out for a meal, go to the pictures or shop.

    • Older travelers
      8.2

      The manager was very helpful and accommodating. The room we were originally given was not as described by the website which was not the Resorts fault.

      Noisy people next door who talked and shouted on til 1am.

    • Older travelers
      9.2

      The heated pool was a great for me, as I could walk around, which I need for my injuries. The resort was very relaxing. Breakfast was really yummy and the staff including the maintenance guy were all lovely people. The bed was very comfy and the views were fantastic. Loved it there.

      The stairs as i have bad knees. Maybe more shade outside where the barbeque is.

      A great room, with internet WiFi and iPod station. Very friendly & helpful staff. A great seaside holiday location for young & old.
