    Very relaxing and quiet very happy.

    Thought that the family room would have had a dvd player for the kids! Pretty small dislike though.Thought it had a trundle being a deluxe family room? May have mis read info though.

    Fabulous

    We really enjoyed our stay there, but was a little disapointed that we were not informed that when we booked on our credit card details were only being held, we hadn't paid for the room and no one informed us that payment hadn't been made and that you pay when your leaving. The guys behind the desk and so, so lovely what you would expect at a resort like that but the lady was very very rude not just to us but to everyone she was very short with people not very good customer service just plain dam rude....

    The location was great - 2 min walk to the marina and shops. Well presented rooms and clean.

    The cafe is never really open. You cant even get a coffee even though reception stand right next to the coffee machine all day. I did book a 'bay view room'... But you couldnt really see the bay from the room. Only a glimpse of water. All in all...a great place to stay.

    Very good

    Having a two day break in 8 months from business travelling, I enjoyed the motels proximity to some very nice spots.

    I found the property a little tired and in need of a 'freshen' up, plus the road noise was not condusive to a good nights sleep (perhaps doubple glazing or better window/door seals roadside.

    Superb

    The room was large and clean and quiet and all normal facilities were provided - cable TV, coffee/tea making facilities etc. The swimming pool is heated and attractive, and the Resort is as close to the centre of Nelson Bay as you can get - easy access to shops and cafes, as well as the restaurants at the marina.

    We had a great time at The Nelson, but some relatives staying in the older wing were less impressed than we were and complained about noisy airconditioning.

    The location was perfect. Close to shops, opposite marina, restaurants etc. Staff were friendly, pool area was great, rooms had balconies. Would not consider staying anywhere else on return visits.

    We found it convenient to all we wanted to see and enjoy. The staff were both friendly and very helpful providing us with concise answers to our requests for advice and directions. We have already booked another stay and look forward to being at the resort again.

    Reception on arrival was excellent, and very welcoming. A minor problem with the room was quickly attended to. Suggestions for restaurants enabled us to compare several places within walking distance. Check in and check out very efficient and we highly recommend.

    The Nelson Resort is clean and comfortable and situated in a very convenient location in Nelson Bay. It is close to the Marina and great if you want to have a few drinks as it is walking distance back to the Resort.
