Week stay in room with some cooking amenities, ideal for low budget business/work travel. Walking distance to many restaurants and Marina area in Nelson Bay. Very quiet week nights, packed Saturday night. Good economical option for a quiet motel in the Bay.

Stayed fri and Sat 20 and 21st May. On TA reviews it rated well and we weren't disappointed. Darren on reception was very welcoming and showed us on the map good walking tracks, eateries and sights. We were given room 7 which was upstairs by a single flight of stairs. Car parking is anywhere under cover of the up stairs...

Spent two nights here during school holidays. Clean and tidy room. Friendly service and great location. Motel is an easy walk from the bay but located on a quiet street so no traffic / noise. Some issues with mosquitos when on the balcony. Easy car parking.

Had 3 nights here,clean & resonable size rooms. Car was undercover so that's a bonus too. Easy walk to Marina & then in town centre.Free wifi which worked so another bonus there. Lots of trees around which brought the birds around in the morning & possums at night. Good value for money,we had a nice stay.
