We stayed at Nelson Bay B&B for a night on our way to Sydney. We were extremely impressed with the owner's hospitality - he really did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable! We stayed in the Spa Suite, and the room was very comfortable, clean and modern. The spa is located in an alcove just outside the room and was a relaxing treat for us after a day in the car. The kitchen and living room is located next to the bedrooms, but unlike some B&Bs, it is separate to the host's living quarters, so you can really enjoy some privacy and not have to worry about getting in the way.
Locationwise, the B&B is on the road into town, and is only a short walk or even shorter drive from the Nelson Bay shopping district. The host provided us with some fantastic info on what to see and do in the local area. For anyone visiting, a walk to the top of one of the local mountains provides amazing views of the bay, and you can also inspect some old WWII gun emplacements. On the way up we saw some very interesting bushland, and even a couple of echidnas!
Breakfast the next morning was very nice. Freshly baked bread, juice, cereal, fresh fruit and yoghurt were provided and there was certainly more than enough to go round. We also enjoyed making friends with the host's dog and cat - a great touch for a B&B.
All in all, we'd recommend this B&B to anyone looking for a place to stay in Nelson Bay. The hosts are very welcoming and it has a nice, friendly atmosphere.
