Great service and informative. Service, clean rooms, lawns mowed, clean pool. Hotel needs updating but at least they make an effort with what they've got. This was our second accommodation in the area that week and this was half the price and twice as good. I would stay again. Great for our family of four. Walking distance to n/bay shopping/ food.

We booked last minute, all else in Nelson Bay booked out and paid a premium for a basic 1980's style accommodation $320, for 1 night. But, it was soo worth it. Balcony. View. Service. Everything. $10 pp breakkie best value ever. Highly recommended.
