We arrived and needed to use the disability shower, which is perfect for wheelchair access. We got our disability client ready to use the shower but The water was turned off,...

We stayed 6 nights at Marina for a golf tournament.It's 30 years old, a bit tired as people say...But we had a fantastic stay. Bed was firm and comfortable, air con worked, it would be a bit uncomfortable in really hot weather, it was around 22 when we were there. We slept with sliding door open for fresh air. Staff...

We just visited for the weekend as there was not much else in the way of accomodation in this price range, rooms were tidy, beds are ok. The resort has a great view but besides this I wouldn't stay again as its outdated and the facilities like buffet breakfast were nothing to write home about. If you want budget you...

This was probably once a premium resort, however now it is showing it's age and need for upkeep. The air conditioner is a box window unit that sounded like it needed new bearings and rattled away. The bathroom looks old and tired as does the carpet. Breakfast was great up on the 4th floor, with great views, but we were...

Bathroom needs refurbishment, overall the hotel needs renovation but was clean, price of room was reasonable but the location was perfect, view from balcony overlooking marina was beautiful but aircon system on balcony was a little loud and hot air blowing from unit was making it a little warm to sit outside on a hot evening. Free Wifi was great...

The whole place is very dated and really showing signs of age. It appears that what may have been a highly sought after motel when it first opened, has simply not kept up with ongoing improvements since it was built, which I estimate to be about 25 years ago. Dated and very tired, which was not matched by the cost...

I booked the hotel before reading the reviews, I was a bit worried. Upon arrival we were extremely happy with the view over Port Stephens from our adequate balcony (3rd floor). There was a pool and a spa out the front which appeared to be well managed and definitely well patronised. The room was large and the queen bed comfortable....
