          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.

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.

          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.

          Reviewed November 26, 2018

          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.

          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!

          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.

          We appreciate your time to leave feedback and your positive rating. We are very lucky to have such a convenient location, close to the waterfront and the town centre. Our staff work hard to maintain cleanliness. I will mention the lipstick to them.

          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

          Fantastic stay!”

          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!
