We stayed at the Nelson Resort because we got an amazing deal through Expedia.com., and my husband wanted to take me away for a few days for my birthday. This site is well worth being registered on because of the good deals. Complimentary bottle of wine on arrival and late checkout was a lovely touch. I agree that it is not a resort but a motel, but it is perfectly situated within walking distance of absolutely everything in the Bay area. We were in Room 5, which also had a view of the hotel carpark and an awning, but we looked past this out over the bay and the town. The pub must be the most well behaved in NSW, because we didn't hear a sound from there of a night, and when we checked in on the Sunday afternoon there was a guy singing, we could hear it in our room and he was great!! We will definitely stay here again, it is such a pretty place to visit and not far for us to travel from our home on the mid north coast, but next time we will see if there is a bigger room. The bathroom has no window or any obvious ventilation, I did enquire if there was a working fan in there but I think it is just an exhaust system that is constantly "on"??? Had to prop room door open with a chair and leave bathroom door open while we showered, but only because I am claustrophobic and the steam and closeness was doing my head in!!! I can't say enough about the lovely staff, from the time I booked till the time we checked out they were charming, obliging, friendly, you name it, they ticked all the boxes. Having worked in the hospitality industry for many, many years, they are the staff you would kill to have working for your. Thank you for a lovely stay, and we will see you again soon.
