My brother and I stayed at this establishment during the Christmas period. The place is nice and new. It has a modern, contemporary feel about, using minimal decor throughout the place, including the room itself.
Parking is available for all guests, but if you don't get home before 11pm, be prepared to park outside in the street. Don't worry, as it's pretty safe anyway.
The pool is a simple lap pool, with barbecue facilities and a couple of deck chairs. There is a nice view of Nelson Bay and the town from the pool. But as the previous reviewer mentioned, this may not last long due to the development going on.
The room is quite simple, with just enough room for 2 single beds, a desk, bar fridge and TV. It felt a little too cosy for me and my brother. The wardrobe is a little small as well. Fortunately the bathroom is a little more generous in space, with basic amenities provided.
Our stay would've been almost great, had it not been for a problem with our bed configuration. Our booking had contained a request for twin singles. However after checking in just before 6pm, we found the room had a double bed. Since reception closes at 6pm, there was no staff around to complain about this. There was no information book in the room for us to know who to call outside of hours to fix up our situation. So keep this in mind if you ever have any issues with your room. Make sure you raise it before 6pm, as staff will be nowhere to be found. Fortunately the next day, staff were around to request the bedding configuration to be changed.
Had this stuff up not happened, I would've been fully satisfied with our stay. Overall, a decent place to stay, as long as you don't have any similar experiences sour your stay.
