    The photos do not do the family room justice. The room is large and would be very comfortable for a family. Room was clean, and has tea and coffee facilities and a little bar fridge. Only a very short walk down to Nelson Bay Marina which is perfect. Motel staff were friendly and welcoming. Would definitely stay again. Thank you

    Location, quiet surroundings, friendly owner

    We stayed 2 nights just before Easter and found the motel a great budget solution to enjoy Nelson Bay, despite the busy weekend. 5 minutes walk to the Marina, but located in quiet street. Very friendly owner who arranged for separate beds for my mum and me, giving us a room with extra sofabed. Clean with modern furniture (actually much nicer than picture on website). Would definitely return!
