Thanks for your feedback. Given the covid-19 restrictions currently in place, the Marina Resort is not in its usual happy full swing of things. It is possible that the current situation has affected your perceptions of the hotel.

An old fashioned basic family holiday hotel in a beautiful position on the hill. Rooms are big with a range of bed options and spotlessly clean. Excellent value to.

Thank you for leaving us your rating and comments. We are very lucky to have such an awesome location. Being a traditional style hotel, we still have the larger room size. I will pass your compliment on cleanliness back to our housekeepers. They work hard.

Thank you for your comments and rating. You're right, it would be great to have a keyless system in place. I'm pretty sure the owners are considering it for the future. All in good time.

There was a wall light above the bed my wife kept hitting her head on, the spa bath in the bathroom didn’t work. The balcony door didn’t latch dangerous for children

Thanks for pointing out these issues in your room. None of the harbour rooms have spa motors in the baths. We no longer advertise these rooms as having spas. We will have our maintenance staff adjust the lamp and sliding door lock. We truly hope you had a great time in Nelson Bay overall.
