The hotel is located near the marina with several eateries to choose from. The 2 room apartment that we stay in was tastefully decorated. Bedrooms were nice. However, only the hall and 1 of the bedrooms has air con/heating. The main door (room 14) was missing a latch.
Great location, comfortable stay!”
Superb location within walking distance to the marina. Hotel breakfast was amazing at The Little Nelson. Rooms are clean, but walls are thin and we could hear people talking next door in the middle of the night. There were some ants crawling near the door when we checked-in as well. The washroom is huge, water pressure is good. Reception staff was nice and helpful. Gym was well-maintained. Will stay here again!
The location is great. However, the room was a bit dated and the toilet door lock were not working but overall it was sufficiently clean. The cafe located downstairs was delicious. Did not use the swimming pool as it was raining outside but it looked good.
Great place to stay for anyone!”
We have stayed here 3 times and have not been disappointed at all. Hotel rooms are clean and newly refurbished, there are great views over the marina and an easy walk to the marina. Would definitely recommend for anyone traveling to this area.
Front guest staff so helpful with great places to eat. Lovely pool and very comfortable rooms. Would definitely stay again, having parking was great and within walking distance to everything was a huge plus.
Good location ”
This hotel is in a good location close to the marina. Reception staff were good and the 1 bed apartment was adequate but nothing special. Free parking and Foxtel. The wifi was very patchy. An ok option, not sure it was worth the drive up the headland on our trip from Sydney to Brisbane. Fingal bay was very pretty.
Please clean the room floor and change towels ”
We arrived very early, the receptionist was very helpful and told us when our room is ready she will call us and let us in. We had breakfast in the hotel and quite enjoyed. After our breakfast she called us and said we can check in, so we did check it. The room was good. 2nd day they didn’t clean the room and didn’t change our towels which made us not very comfortable, so next day we put our notes to asked for changing towels and putting please clean the room but they still didn’t clean the floor. In the kitchen area are lots of small ants. Except this issue were all good.
Loved the toiletries, the super friendly front desk, and their awesome bike rentals - so much better than renting anywhere else. Oh and little nel cafe was serving one of the best brekkies you could find in the area.
lovely boutique hotel in good spot”
Love this tidy little hotel for holiday, room is clean and tastefully decorated, staff member are very friendly. Will come back again:)
The room was clean with a kitchenette which is very good the staff are lovely, the place is very close to the Marina the cafes and restaurants are just a few step away, the pool is clean and my kids loved it, ill definitely recommend it and will be coming back hopefully soon, keep up The good job 👍 guys 😊
Good service and great food”
+ Would definitely recommend this resort: Great location as it was very near (just opposite) the bay, good service from the night check-in reception staff, great breakfast and lunch at The Little Nel (would definitely recommend guests to eat there), plenty of bars and restaurants that are open at night, spacious apartment (thankful to be upgraded to a 2-bedroom apartment). - Had booked the resort because it says "24 hours check-in allowed" and was expecting the reception to be opened 24 hours. However, we had to call the night reception service when we arrived as the reception had closed at 8.30pm. It was a problem for us as we did not have a local phone line. It was all good after that when we managed to make the call. Check-in was smooth and staff was very helpful. - Toilet floor was dirty and greasy.
Great Accommodation at Nelson Bay”
Extremely friendly front dest receptionist (greeted politely with big smile) , room is clean , bed was good , toilet was great. There's a nice heated pool and a mini gym in the resort too. Everything great, very satisfied.
Great location for a long weekend in Nelson Bay”
Booked a Bayview King room for two nights. Great location opposite the marina. Comfortable bed and nice balcony with partial views of the bay. Walking distance to restaurants - recommend the onsite cafe for breakfast and the pub next door for dinner.
Comfortable stay in a great location”
The resort is centrally located close to attractions, restaurants and super mart. A bonus would be the good food served by The Little Nel cafe. Really fresh and sumptuous ingredients. The room is generally clean and equipped with basic amenities.
Very clean and tidy room. I love being this close to town.”
Reception staff were very helpful and friendly.
Weekend away with my teenage daughter and was very happy with the hotel. Great location right in the heart of Nelson Bay. Great little coffee shop/restaurant at hotel and very much in demand as you'll see by the people lining up to get a table. Even though on main street double glass doors kept noise completely out but allowed you to take in the partial ocean views. Great facilities with gym, pool and bbq area. Can't forget to mention very comfortable bed and pillows and parking is included too. Would definitely come back to Hotel Nelson.
We have stayed here quite a few times & always enjoy our stay. Location is perfect, 2min walk to the Marina & town. The renovations that they have done to the pool area was much needed & now is a very appealing spot to laze in the sun or dip in the pool.
A short stay that ticked most of the boxes”
Our room was a clean, spacious family room with a kitchenette. Double doors kept outside noise to a minimum. Close to the marina and town with an excellent onsite cafe for breakfast or lunch. The hotel is located next door but didn't present any issues. Live entertainment on a Sunday evening at the hotel was pretty good too.
Convenient location , better with 24 hour on standby staff
Great location and clean Hotel”
We had a very pleasant stay. The room is spacious and the heated swimming pool is very nice.
