Best value for money ”
Friendly service clean and nice good for any kind of group

Susie from Australia”
We have stayed here several times as a one night stopover driving from Canberra to the North Coast and have found it an ideal place to do so. Staff are very friendly and efficient. Rooms are large and comfortable. We can’t recommend enough the in-house restaurant of Romeo’s where we have dined on several stays. Romeo is a great chef and has menu deals as well as nice food. Try his fillet steaks done to order perfectly. It is reasonably priced and Romeo is a delightful person. Also good for a buffet breakfast the next morning. And you don’t have to go somewhere else to eat after a long drive. We will be staying here again.
Thank you Sue for your favourable commendation and encouraging feedback. It is always a pleasure to have such lovely guests stay with us and we certainly hope you will visit again. Romeo's is one of the best kept secrets in the Bay, but we are very glad you are letting others in on the secret. His meals are exceptional and everyone says so. Thank you for choosing to stay with us.
Nice big room and very comfortable bed. Close to the restaurants and the marina. Had a ground floor room overlooking the pool which we prefer. Would be better if they put crockery and cutlery in the room but if you ask they will give you whatever you want. Very obliging.
Thank you for your review and rating. We are very lucky to have such a wonderful location, close to the town centre, waterfront and many activities. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and hope you will return.
J & C from Sydney”
We were made feel very welcome by the gentleman at the Reception & greeted with a wonderful smile. The bed was extremely comfortable & the room was very clean. On our departure the lady at Reception was extremely pleasant. Would definitely recommend Marina Resort.
Thank you so much for your positive rating and the lovely feedback. It was a pleasure having you stay with us the Marina Resort and we hope will visit us again.
Clean and value for money accommodation”
The hotel located at the very good location near to Nelson Bay, room is huge and beds are clean. One of the best value hotel to my opinion. Although the facilities a bit old but I think this is just a very small down side. Hotel exterior looks old but it is not really "OLD", the building exterior wall was constructed with the natural red color bricks and therefore I guess this is the reason it looks old from the picture.
Thank you for your encouraging feedback. You are correct in saying the exposed brick gives the building an older style look, but the whole hotel has more recently had an overhaul with new beds, air-conditioners, upgraded bathrooms, new televisions, etc. The hotel has a more retro appeal rather than an ultra modern approach, but everything is clean and well maintained. Guests report having comfortable stays here.
Well located & well priced”
Marina Resort is close to the water front and the town centre. Our room had wonderful water views. The Restaurant also has spectacular views. Excellent value for money & I would definitely stay there again.
Thank you for your positive review. We are very lucky to have such a wonderful location with such great views of the area. We certainly hope you will come back to Nelson and stay with us again.
Paid a bit extra for high floor, better view, staff very helpful
Thanks for leaving a review and thanks for staying with us. We are glad you enjoyed your stay.
Enjoyed my stay here. Large room which included an outdoor area. Staff friendly. Although i had a car, was only a short walk to town centre and marina. Large parking area. Didnt use the pool as it was cold but it looked good and clean. Wifi worked well.
Thank you Susan for your positive comments. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We do have decent sized rooms at the Marina Resort and we are lucky to have the great location with great views from the upper levels, yet close to the town and activities. Please come and stay with us again.
Friendly staffs. Located not far from d'Abola Marina”
Friendly staffs. Located nearby to housing area. Just 2-3 blocks away from D'Abola Marina. It is not a new hotel but free parking is provided. A small swimming pool at the front of the hotel. Buffet Breakfast set at the 4th flr with overlooking at Abola Marina. Breakfast at AUD16/pax is worth to try. Will definitely come back again.
Great location near the town area and short distance to the waterfront. Rather disappointed with the older style building and insides. Staff was helpful when we rung him although we arrived very late
I spent one night in the ground floor. It still gets some waterview. The room is big with one double and two single beds. It is good value for such a quality room. The only thing is the air conditioner is a bit too noisy.
Great location ”
This hotel is in a great location with view over the marina. It's an older hotel and no frills rooms but if you are looking for a hotel near the action with great views at a good price this is a good option. The bed and sheets were very comfortable. Food in the restaurant was good and there was a cheap buffet breakfast with all you need, $16 for that which great for the price!
Thank you for taking the time to leave us your review. The hotel is older in style, but it is clean and superbly located as you mention. Our chef's evening meals always receive positive mention and we're lucky to have him here in our restaurant .We are glad that your stay was comfortable and hope you will return some time.
Magnificent Marina Resort”
Upon arrival we were professionally and warmly greeted. The location is perfect with all you need within walking distance. The rooms a spacious with comfortable beds and working conveniences such as fridge, microwave and tv. Bathroom is tidy with great water pressure in the shower. There is a pool and spa, but really its only if you're not experiencing good weather otherwise, the bay has four great beaches in strolling distance. Venture a little further and nature walks and surfy beaches await. The place is great, the people are wonderful, Marina resort even offers a hard to beat value for money brekky.
Thank you so much for taking the time to review the Marina Resort. We really appreciate your positive feedback and hope you will definitely come and visit us again. We hope your time in Nelson Bay was wonderful and we wish you and your family all the best. Kind regards, Reception Staff Marina Resort
We found this place exceptionally clean, wonderful friendly and kind staff. Couldn't do enough to make our stay more comfortable. It was a quick visit though we would love to come back and defiantly stay here again.

Trip to Nelson Bay from Scarborough QLD for Life Celebrations”
We selected the Marina Resort for the position and excellent reviews. This is an expertly run resort and the staff could not have been kinder or more attentive. The room was really delightful on the ground floor and quite private with an excellent view. Attended the 4th Floor Restaurant on the night we arrived (it is normally closed) by staff invitation as a Bus Group was dining at the Buffet. A delightful meal provided. I would thoroughly recommend this establishment for all travellers from near or far. You'll be very happy.
Thank you Brian for your positive comments. It was a pleasure to have such lovely guests as yourselves staying with us and we hope you will stay with us again in the future. We are glad you were able to enjoy the restaurant with our visiting group.Our chef prepares wonderful meals and we are lucky to have him here at the Marina Resort. At this time of year, Nelson Bay is a nice, quiet location and is a great place to relax, but there is still plenty to do, like dolphin and whale watching, great coastal walks, sand dune and many other activities. We are so happy you were able to come and enjoy the place. Kind regards, Marina Resort Staff.
Hi, don’t know the name but the gentleman who checked me in was very helpful”
The best part was my bus was due for 45 minutes and I asked reception if I can sit in the lounge and he mentioned that you can stay in room. The way he responded was pretty much his family. Thank you for making my stay easier. I knew your name but it’s just wiped out sorry! I will stay again
Thank you for your comments Sukmita. Tim is our Operations Manager. He is a lovely man is always helpful when guests are in need. We're glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you will visit us in Nelson Bay again.
Looks old from the outside but the rooms are nice and spacious. Buffet breakfast for $16.00 per person was nice so was the dinner in the 4th floor restaurant. Nice pool and plenty of parking in a very central location. Can't fault it!
Thank you for your response. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us.
