A place of true comfort and the softest of pillows”
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.
Driving through this area on the lookout for a nice property to stay, whilst checking the IPad. I found Admiral Nelson online and the reviews were good. The rooms were clean and tidy, within walking distance to a meal and supermarket. This property is wonderful for the price
Quiet, handy location”
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.
Well located, comfortable and extremely friendly.”
Very enjoyable and friendly motor inn. The staff could not do enough to make our stay Memorable. All of the bays in the area offered safe swimming and useful amenities with a good number of restaurants which offered a variety of dining experiences. Would not hesitate to stay again.
Great motor inn, fusion of east and west”
nestled in a residential part of port stephens, it's convenient if you have a car. no complaints but compliments of the service. accomodating to our needs of laundry service and free wifi. walking distance to the west diggers club for meals and entertainment. nice cool walk in the evenings within vicinity of the inn. close by to nelson bay by car for cruise to watch dolphin.
It was amazing holiday experience I've been to of my own”
The staff was nice and friendly, the room was nice, clean the lounge and bed were both cosy. I would stay there again if i come back to Nelson Bay again in the future.
Had a great time even if it rained all weekend. ”
Great great great . We had a lot of fun and love nelsons bay great beach just love it
It was a very big room for family trip, and also clean. The location is very close to the Nelson Bay market and beach.
Good place to stay”
my girlfriend and i stayed at the admiral for 3 nights and were very happy with our experience. the hotel is most definately at the upper end of the 3 stars rating. the rooms were very nicely appointed with the decor. free coffee and tea with biscuits is provided, the rooms also had a microwave and toaster.
Admiral Nelson Motor Inn”
The room is rather big and clean and the beds are comfortable. It is near the Nelson Marina area (short drive away) if you plan to go there for activities such as whale watching etc. The location is rather good with nice cafes a short drive away.
Very comfortable, nice location”
I didn't expect too much on a Motor Inn but it really a good stay here. Location is nice and room is big enough. The only thing is the parking lot is too small , I need to park my big Van on roadside. Wifi access is also very poor.
Large and comfortable Room”
After saw all those positive reviews, I have built enough confidence to enjoy the stay thee and the Inn didn't let me down! Except the sound isolation need to be improved...as my neighbours were quite exciting all the night =,=
great relaxed couple of nights”
we (travelling as a couple)were pleasantly surprised by the standard of the hotel & service for the price. good location, attentive staff, good size clean comfortable rooms & nice spacious grounds with a large carpark. would reccommend & stay again.
Comfortable & close to town”
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.
Immaculately presented. Quiet location. Very reasonably priced. Would definitely reccomend it and will definitely stay there again.
Very comfortable and extremely relaxing. ”
Relaxing, Comfortable, Quiet. We just wanted a rest for a few days and this proved to be a great place for us. Close to the Diggers Club where they served meals and very reasonable prices. Close to the CBD for coffee shops and shopping and close to the Mariner for whale and dolphin watching.
Lovely hotel and service with a smile”
it`s a nice small motel we were very happy and we`d come back next time , the staff is very friendly and helpful , clean large rooms with foxtel tv , small pool and free bbq facility outside , few mionutes walk to the beach and west diggers , not far away from the shops
A quietl location with friendly hotel staff”
Very enjoyable stay in a very clean and well-equipped hotel room. The bottled water provided was a nice touch.
Great hotel in great spot.”
Great place to stay for holiday as a couple or with the children. Big rooms with lots of facilities, not expensive and close to city. The staff very friendly and helpful, no problem with the booking.
Everything was excellent. Really close to our friends staying in Halifax Caravan Park and one block from the Diggers Club which is very popular. Only suggestion would be to have the carpet steam cleaned in Room 15 as it felt greasy to walk on.
