My name is Dave and I have stayed at this Hotel for many years. Each year I travel up from the central Coast and stay overnight before going to the Scottish Clans Gathering at Nelson Bay.

Tom was so welcoming and accommodating that we extended our stay. Rooms were well appointed with a very comfortable bed. An easy walk puts you on the harbour. If it wasn't so far from England we would be regular guests.

No servicing if room with our 3night stay , so no fresh towels , wifi does not work , bad traffic noise, mould in the shower , hot breakfast was cold when delivered , no cover over food. Tom is a nice man but that does not excuse poor service

We drove from Sydney to this hotel and arrived at midnight last night. Despite assurances that the owner would leave the keys in a box near reception for us, there were no keys. We tried calling him numerous times but he did not answer. There were no other available hotels in the Nelson Bay region due to it being a... More

We stayed there for one night, Tom the host was very accommodating with every request. The rooms are a good size and exceptionally clean. Well situated away from the hustle and bustle but only a short stroll away

We stayed here for one night when visiting Nelson Bay two years ago & were so delighted with this nice little motel that we have returned again. Tom, the Proprietor is truly one of the friendliest & most helpful person we have encountered in our travels. Well done Tom! You are a "Gem". We were really impressed with the cleanliness... More

We booked three rooms at the motor lodge, very well located for restaurants etc. the accommodation is fine just what we wanted for our overnight stay. Tom catered for our needs and gave the young adults their own room rather than an extra bed to make a family room, nice touch. Tom is the perfect host and we had a... More

We found this motel to have very clean rooms though a bit dated, comfortable bed and a 10 minute walk into town or the marina. The host was very pleasant and friendly and gave us a good deal when we asked if we could stay an extra night. Highly recommended.

The friendly staff made us feel very welcome, and obviously care about this motel as there were nice decorate touches in the rooms. The rooms were a bit run down, but clean, and had nice balconies overlooking the park next door. Its' in a great location close to the beach.

It is very well located, just a short walk to the sea and the shops, and there is a nice spot for a bbq, which is handy if you are in a group. There is plenty of parking on site and the staff are very helpful.
