Visiting the Area, we needed overnight accommodation. The Admiral was recommended to us and turned out to be a good one. Staff were very friendly. We asked for a quiet room and we had a lovely large room upstairs , down the back and had a really good quiet night. will go there again.

Room Tip: This motel is just off the main road and has less road noise than most. down the back upstairs is go...

We were impressed with the cleanliness, comfort level and the quietness of this motel. At the price it is definitely value for money and centrally located. The parking is a little tight but it is only a short stroll to the Diggers Club which is one of the best clubs we have experienced. The proliferation of do's and don't signs throughout the motel were a bit unsettling with the treat of fines if one breaks the rules. Apart from this, however, a most enjoyable stay at a reasonable tariff.

Admiral Nelson Motor Inn is a great choice in the area.
Firstly the reception was open late enough to accommodate our check in. Very hassle free check in procedure. The room we had for 3 adults had 3 beds, lots of space for luggage etc. There was a lot of things left in the room to use, plenty of cutlery and crockery. There is a microwave, fridge, good little kitchenette. There is also a nice selection of tea/coffee/biscuits. There is some nice toiletries left in the spacious and clean bathroom. Secure door on room. Ample parking. Did not have time to use pool as we only stayed a night arriving late and leaving early but it looked fine. Plenty of parking spaces and helpful staff member. Polite cleaning staff in the morning as well. Would recommend to anyone wanting to stay in the area

The room was clean and comfortable with spotlessly clean linen and towels. The bathroom was spacious with good toiletries provision and great shower. My girls loved the shampoo and hair conditioner. There were sufficient plates, bowls, cups and cutlery, no doubt with only a microwave but we did not make use of because we only put up a night there.

The beds were comfortable with lots of extra pillows. Beautiful bed covers. Great tea-coffee making facilities. Good lighting in the room but unfortunately there's only one power socket for charging our gadgets.

The receptionist was very helpful, friendly and kind and she was helping us to google for driving direction to Sydney. The motel is easily accessible to the town centre and Victoria Parade.

There's free Wifi provided but connectivity was poor. Have to get out of the room to outside to get connection. We loved the place and would recommend it to anyone visiting Nelson Bay.

we had two nights here while touring, looked fine on the outside and proved to be nice inside, good staff, clean comfortable room, easy parking as there was plenty of room, handy for the town. Cost$119 per night. This is a nice area to stay in, lovely beaches, not too crowded in Feb choice of restaurants in the town. Did not try the pool which was a bit public being close to the road.
There are other motels in the area.

We stayed for 5 nights and enjoyed every moment. We had an upper level room with balcony, which was clean, comfortable and adequately spacious. It also had a small kitchen area, which was useful for those occasions when we had had enough of eating out. Well situated between Shoal Bay Beach and Little Beach, both a 10-minute stroll away. Only 1 negative point - if the swimming pool is important to you, you may be disappointed. It is tiny and located between the entrance and the car park, opposite Reception. Otherwise excellent, with friendly, helpful staff, and who needs a swimming pool when two good beaches are close at hand!

Room Tip: Upper level with balcony overlooking Achilles Street gets sunshine and shade.
