“Friendly owners and excellent service plus value for money.”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

Stayed two nights. We were two families and had booked the Family suite and Family Deluxe suite. The rooms were well done with adequate toiletries provided.
Ideally located just outside the Nelson bay CBD. Close to Shoal bay where we trekked to Tomaree head. The motel has a nice Thai/Bali touch in the décor which is credit to the owners. We would definitely book with them again.

We stayed at the Admiral Nelson Motor Inn for one night. It's at a quiet location but within short driving distance to eateries. The room is big, very clean and most of all, has a very comfortable bed. My husband and I had a very good sleep and felt rested after the long drive from the Sydney airport to Port Stephen. Will definitely stay here again if we ever visit Sydney.

This motel was lovely and quiet, clean and comfortable. It was convenient for getting to Shoal Bay, Tomaree Head and The Inner Lighthouse Café, also not too far from the town and waterfront. It was very good value for money and the staff were very friendly and helpful. It has everything you need for a comfortable stay.

3 day stay at the Admiral Nelson. This was a very nice stop over on our holidays. Just down the road from the West Diggers club this cub was also excellent for meals and a drink. We walked into Nelson Bay shops which was only 15 minute walk. Clean, fresh and thoughtfully appointed rooms, pleasant extremely helpful hosts where always helpful. We will come back again. :)

Room Tip: Very affordable accommodation

The best way to truly judge a facility is to assess it over time. I have had the pleasure of staying at the Admiral Nelson Motor Inn 3 times over a period of 18 months.

Clean, fresh and thoughtfully appointed rooms, pleasant extremely helpful hosts and with each visit as enjoyable as the first, is something definitely worthy of applauding.

Room Tip: All my stays have been upstairs, Book early.
