We have stayed at this hotel on many occasions over the years. Our last visit was some years ago and the buildings have deteriorated since then, even though the prices are still on the high side.
We were informed that the new owners have plans to extend and renovate the complex. This is not before time and we would not return in its present condition.
Of course the views and location don't change. Port Stephens is still one of our favourite holiday destinations.
The restaurant still has an excellent chef and the meals are very tasty. The breakfast and choice of food is excellent.
The beds are comfortable but more attention needs to be given to the smaller things like the toiletries and choice of TV channels.
There are lovely grounds to walk in and a walk by the marina is always pleasant. The swimming pool is big enough so that even having a large number of swimmers doesn't become unpleasant.More
