Horrible service.... the lady at the desk was very very rude and disrespectful. The manager was the same, he threatened to kick us out for asking how much it cost to add an extra person. That is literally the only reason. The lady also wanted to call the police.. to which we said "yes, please" due to our total confusion...

Stayed for 2 nights was ok but nothing to rave about. Uncomfortable bed. Whole villa needed a good clean, floors were very dirty. Outside was untidy spiders and spiderwebs on the staircase. Could not use the spa as we are unable to get to the switches. Great location close to water.

Stayed here for a few nights but weren't overly impressed. I know It is cheap accommodation, but even so. Little things, squeecky fans unbearable while sleeping, loud aircon, Advertised wifi only works in some rooms of the resort. The floors were dirty Enough that after getting out of shower my feet were black again in 5min. Heavy fines if late...

Let me preface this with saying that I find accommodation in non-metropoloitan Australia ridiculously over-priced. For some bizarre reason 2-3 star accommodation in Nelson Bay (and similar places) will set you back the same amount a 4-5 star hotel would in Sydney or Melbourne. Where's the sense in that? But, once you get over this, the Zulu is a worthwhile...

Location location location. That's the good bit out of the way. The room wasn't booked the night before. Reasonable then to assume an early checking would be no issue? Wrong! After driving from Twwed Heads thru the night (didn't want to waste any time there) was abruptly told checking is 2pm I am busy cleaning rooms. The female manager was...

After reading some of the other reviews I nearly didn't book this, but it was the cheapest available so I decided to give it a go. And I'm glad I did as it was excellent. Yes, the room was a little tired and when one of the neighbouring rooms used the spa it was quite loud, but those were the...

Reception area disgusting. People running the motel very rude. Walked straight into our room without knocking. Have reported this. If you want a good location this is ok. If you care about service do not go. The people are extremely rude!!!

“While the "African Queen" sounds tempting, the "Zulu" looked nicer (although perhaps more basic) from the outside. The Zulu has an outdoor terrace, which was heavenly. I think the African Queen has an upstairs which may give great views of the marina.”
