“rude management”
Reviewed 12 August 2013

The rooms are very dirty, uncomfortable and outdated + very expensive not worth the money. The management was so rude we refused to stay there and went up the road to the nelson resort where we were treated with respect and the rooms were very, clean and inexpensive and the management made you feel very welcome.

Room Tip: Dont judge the rooms by the look of the building it looks great from the outside the inside is compl...

We have stayed several times over the years and the place just keeps getting more expensive and more run down and dirty. We have chosen it because of location but have recently found the Nelson Resort up the street that is clean and good value

We chose the basic room which was clean and had a small balcony. Furnishings were a little reminiscent of Crossroads Motel from the 60's but comfortable enough.The manageress was very kind & let us have free run of a superior room so that we could use the washer & dryer for our laundry. Very obliging. Right in the centre of town so great location for shops, restaurants & dolphin cruises.

We recently stayed in the private appartments in this complex. The room had outstanding views. We are a family and it catered fpor our needs. The master bedroom had a queen size bed and plenty of storage areas. The second room had 2 single beds which were great for our 2 teenage children.
The venue had high security access which was pleasing.
The balcony looked out over the marina and bay area. We were close tp the shops and all activities.
I would recommend this venue to any family.

Room Tip: I suggest you book the private suites rather than the motel.

This is a slightly shabby hotel, in need of some repair and refurbishments but the location is fantastic, right opposite the marina and bay at Nelsons Bay. The hotel has a roof top pool and area to relax in and is located over some shops and restaurants, within in easy walk of everywhere in Nelsons Bay. The waterview rooms have a lovely view however ours was at the back of the hotel so no view but roomy unfortunately it smelt from the restaurants cooking downstairs.

I just got back from staying here with my friends! We stayed up till midnight just drinking n talking n we had a knock at the door which was John n his wife who r rude as anything telling us that they live here n we need to keep the noise level down otherwise the police will be called! About 5 minutes later the old grumpy woman knocks on our door again n says we have cameras in the hall way so if use mess up we can watch very thing n you will be charged on ur credit card!We were not doing anything wrong! I would not recommended paying $200 a night as u can't even talk amongst yourselves n have a few drinks with out the old grumpy pair knocking on your door!its their own fault living in a motel.. Of course there is going to be noise! Would not recommend this place for younger people especially !!!
