We recently stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment with friends. Cleanliness was not great, especially around the windows and outdoor furniture. We had to remove a spider web from the handle of the screen door so we didn't have to touch it every time we opened the door. We've stayed in lots of hotels around the country and overseas and this was at the lower end of the scale unfortunately.
The staff on reception were nice and pleasant on arrival. Whilst the pool looked nice and inviting it was always busy so didn't bother to go in. Also it would have cost us $2.50 to get a pool towel, or in fact a change of towel.
Location wise was good, within walking distance of everything. The golf club is good for food, we had lovely meals there.
What we didn't agree with is asking guests to take the rubbish to the bin before leaving. We've never been requested to take the rubbish out anywhere in the world.
All in all we loved Nelson Bay, the Mantra Aqua not so much.
Thank Linda H
