“Wedding Weekend”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

My daughter and her now husband selected The Anchorage to hold their wedding.
This was a fantastic choice.
Location, scenery and accommodation was wonderful.
All the staff were fantastic.
This place is more of a resort then a motel.
Many guests at the wedding stayed for the weekend or longer and all were very pleased and complimentary regarding their accommodation.
The room was quiet, very clean and comfortable. Nice bar and breakfast was good.
Plenty of (free)parking.
For a peaceful weekend away or for a special function this is a great place.

Room Tip: Take your pick. Upstairs rooms have balconies, ground floor units have nice outdoors areas.

My husband and I stayed here overnight to attend a Family Wedding. Fell in love with this place the minute I opened the curtains in our room, what a view! We really enjoyed having a cuppa outside our room on our little deck overlooking the water front. The room was lovely, the bathroom could do with a bit of an update but was still OK for use. The pillows on the bed were in need of replacing - your head went straight through them they may as well have not be there.

The staff were EXCELLENT!

Will be coming back for a longer stay and bringing our telescope as we are avid star gazers and the night sky was so very clear.

Room Tip: Pick a room with a Ocean view

We recently had a shortstay at The Anchorage, Corlette situated on the shores of Nelson Bay. The suites have water views and ours was perfectly placed to see the sunrise each morning. The suites are tastily appointed with comfortable queen bed and bathroom. Recently refurbished. There is a pool and spa area in front of Merretts Restaurant - fine dining. Some common lounge areas for those who want it otherwise can be very private. Salamander shopping centre is only 5 mins away.

Room Tip: Ground level or loft suites available but all have water views.

My partner and I stayed at The Anchorage in a standard room. The service was good and the room large and comfortable with views of the harbour. The bathrooms are outdated but I understand they are in the process of updating things. Unfortunately our stay was soured by the fact there was construction in the building next to us (not the best thing to wake up to or overlook) and the fact that we gave them some negative feedback and then received a phone call telling us we were "unfair." Overall the place is nice but overpriced based on the listed room rates, we have stayed elsewhere in Port Stephens and would choose to in the future.

The location of this hotel is lovely. Being situated on its own marina there was always something going on, yet it was very peaceful. Our double room was very spacious, with the balcony overlooking the marina. The bed was very comfortable. Decor is becoming a bit tired and the bathroom could have done with a makeover ( some mildew on the grouting, slightly rusty shower rail & light fitting) but everything was spotlessly clean.
The main areas of the hotel are bright and spacious. The lounge is beautiful, with lovely views over the marina. The restaurant has a conservatory area which is perfect for breakfast - and, of course, you can also sit outside if you wish. Food was beautifully cooked.
The swimming pool is not very big, but there is a small beach next to the marina which is ideal if you have children. There is also a walk from the hotel, around the point to the next bay, which is very pretty and calm.
The staff were all very efficient, friendly and helpful.
We had two nights here and we wish it had been longer!
One drawback - you have to pay for wifi!!! Why, in this day and age? Otherwise, a very relaxed, peaceful stay.

Room Tip: Choose a room upstairs, overlooking the marina.

Location,Staff,Food,Bar,Rooms all excellent. Stayed in a Loft room which we couldn't fault. Yes it is a little tired but work is in progress. It's not Kims at Toowoon Bay but we aren't paying thousands only hundreds for a weekend. All in all still a lovey setting (nothing is better then water,boats and sand) Do visit.

Room Tip: Can't fault Loft rooms.All have views.

We have stayed at this hotel on many occasions over the years. Our last visit was some years ago and the buildings have deteriorated since then, even though the prices are still on the high side.
We were informed that the new owners have plans to extend and renovate the complex. This is not before time and we would not return in its present condition.
Of course the views and location don't change. Port Stephens is still one of our favourite holiday destinations.
The restaurant still has an excellent chef and the meals are very tasty. The breakfast and choice of food is excellent.
The beds are comfortable but more attention needs to be given to the smaller things like the toiletries and choice of TV channels.
There are lovely grounds to walk in and a walk by the marina is always pleasant. The swimming pool is big enough so that even having a large number of swimmers doesn't become unpleasant.
