the worst experience I had in Australia in regard to cleanness . attached photos are talking themselves . the hotel is for sale and no one cares about quality . the reception team are wonderful but they cannot do anything about the condition of the hotel as this is managerial problem not them.

We had a most relaxing three night midweek stay in a one bedroom Bayview apartment. For a little extra we were on the top floor with expansive views of the beautiful bay and surrounds. It was perfect! Especially spacious with all the necessary comforts and easy walks to the Nelson Bay Marina, cafes and restaurants. Would recommend for mini breaks.

My wife and I stayed overnight 4th August 2016 and found the staff to be very friendly. Room overlooked the pool, was modern, lovely and bright and comfortable. Would have no hesitation in recommending this property or staying there again if visiting the area.

We checked in last minute, due to the conditions at the other hotel we had booked being unsatisfactory. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, and did everything they could to ensure that we got a great deal and that the accommodation was right for us.

We booked a one bedroom apartment at the last minute here, at a very good rate, however reception tried to change us to a motel room, which was not what we needed.

We used two connected apartments with street entry. These were very clean and well appointed with all we needed for a three night stay. The staff were friendly and helpful. The position was ideal close to all the amenities of the area, A short walk to the shops and the Marina. Nelson Bay is such a lovely area to visit

“The rooms are very nice however can get a bit stuffy and hot especially at night. Would prefer a bedroom with a door to block out the noise from the lounge room. Other than that we have stayed a couple of times and really enjoyed our stay and the staff are very friendly and helpful.”
