      A place of true comfort and the softest of pillows”

      Quiet, restful, elegant, friendly

      I found ease of location, just a good distance from the town centre, the area was quiet within a suburban street. On arrival the receptionist looked somewhat anxious as he had been trying to contact me regarding my booking. The good news was that i had been ujp-graded but he still looked tentative even after I expressed my pleasure at this surprise. Then he said but it is upstairs. This was no problem to me and it was great to see his relief. I felt that this place genuinely wanted to meet my needs and please me. Everything was well explained to me and the young man even offered to take my bag upstairs - I did not need this but the offer was gratefully received. I found the room elegant and met all my needs. It was clean and had all the detail attended to in a professional manner. I loved the simplicity of the table runner placed at an angle across the bed with matching cushions and tissue box cover. the art work had been carefully chosen to complement the colour scheme of the above, and truly the pillows were the softest I have ever slept on. I came in last at night and the normal parking spots were taken. Immediately a window opened on the second floor with someone to let me know where I could park. My reason for being in Nelson Bay was to attend a funeral on the following afternoon. I did't want to dress for it in the morning and asked if I could return at lunch time to change. They were only too happy to give me the use of a room for the few minutes I needed and I was very appreciative of this extra service to me. All in all and very good experience.

Staff extremely helpful and welcoming. Great location, easy short walk to RSL, courtesy buses and taxis to other clubs and restaurants. Short car trip to popular swimming locations. Didnt use the pool but it looked very inviting. Would highly recommend this as a place to stay if visiting Nelson Bay

      Handy location, quiet away (but not too) far from all atractions.

      Walking distance to some restaurants, but quite a way to Nelson Bay and Shoal Bay shops. Very tidy and very quiet which was one of our major considerations. Check-in that was efficient and quick. The room itself was spacious with plenty of light. The beds are comfortable and all other amenities you would expect at this level. Huge TV screen which was somewhat of a bonus.

      We really only used the hotel as a base because we were visiting my daughter who lives nearby. The room was clean and comfortable. We had one breakfast which was excellent although a little expensive to have every day (we are pensioners). It would be a good base to explore the area, as it is close to the town centre & harbour front. I would recommend this hotel for families. Some beautiful artworks & decorations around the walls & corridors.
