Admiral Nelson Motor Inn
Ranked #4 of 16 Hotels in Nelson Bay
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 September 2013

Large room with sofa, table and large size TV. Nice bathroom, kitchenette with microwave and crockery. Good bathroom, spotlessly clean and staff very friendly. Close to Diggers Club but far enough away from the hustle and bustle of main town centre to be nice and quiet. Good value for money

Stayed: September 2013, travelled as a couple

Booked a 1 night family deluxe room and happy with the room for the price we pay. No break fast served at hotel but the room has oven and coffee/tea for us to heat up own food; very useful. Room design is nice. Weather was raining and cold. It was dark Short drive to the Marina. Overall good stay.

We find the property good value for money. The room we stayed in was large and clean, with a very well equipped bathroom. Reception was quick, hassle free, though impersonal. There was free wi fi internet and since we were in a a family room, there was also a kitchenette with a microwave oven. All in all, it was a good stay.

On arriving at the motel there was a dispute about the bill. So requested to speak to the manager/person in charge. To which we was initially refused. After a long discussion of it will take an hour to the manager then turning up in 15 mins the dispute was quickly resolved. Very annoying that the reception staff refused to let us speak to the manager when first requested though.

We was in a ground floor room. The motel entry from the car park has no doors at all on it. But does have CCTV. Personally i would prefer shut doors With a locking system as CCTV doesn't stop people entering.

The room was spacious and clean. We stayed for 3 nights. On te second night after returning to our room. We found a cockroach in the room. As you can imagine disturbing. I rang the oncall manager who said it could of come in our luggage (I found this exceptionally rude) which you are advised to do if you have any problems. The manager appeared shocked that we had called him to remove the roach. By the time he arrived my partner had caught the roach under a glass. The manager removed it.

The third night on returning again yes you guessed it another cockroach in the room. I called the manager again. Who when he came to the room to remove it said there not his favourite things and he didn't like doing this.

The next morning we left early before reception opened. The manager phoned me to say he would refund a night on to my card. I am still waiting for this refund. Disappointing hotel in a beautiful area.

Superb. Exceptionally clean room; loads of space in room; large bathroom too; very comfy bed and good quality bedding; sofa; kitchenette and table to eat at; very helpful staff (sorting an issue getting onto wi-fi); useful bits and bobs on sale from reception at very reasonable cost. Only stayed one night but would stay longer.

We liked: The cleanliness of the whole motel and our suite, attention to detail, reasonable cost, friendly staff, and a well cooked breakfast delivered on time. This was all that we needed for a one night stay. It was also next to the diggers club, which was an added bonus.

We didn't like (minor issue - we'd happily stay there again): Lugging bags upstairs to the room, with a young baby and two year old (and all the stuff that goes with them). We had requested a ground floor room when we booked, but these had already been allocated by the time we arrived.

NB: We only stayed one night for the purpose of meeting up with family so we are not sure what local attractions are within walking distance. If we were staying longer, we would like the leave the car and walk to beaches, shops etc.

Room Tip: Don't rely on the internet booking for special requests to be processed, give them a call to che...
