We stayed at The Nelson Resort for a two night getaway. The motel has obviously been around for quite some time but has been renovated quite well. One thing I should say from the start is that there really isn't anything 'resort' like about this motel. It has a pool and a coffee shop and that's about it. Don't expect anything resort like when booking otherwise you will be very disappointed.
Our room had a queen bed and a single bed. It was clean and the furnishings reasonably new. The bathroom was very good for a standard room. A large shower with good pressure has been placed where a bath probably once stood.
The was a small balcony attached to the room. Unfortunately right next to a busy road but blocked by a tree offering a little bit of privacy.
The semi indoor pool was very nice with a good outdoor area attached to it with tables and chairs and a couple of barbecues for the use of guests.
There were no mini bar facilities but I rarely use them when staying in motels anyway. The room does however have a small kitchenette with tea/coffee making facilities, a microwave, fridge and basic crockery and cutlery.
Checking in and out with a very painless experience. The staff were friendly and efficient.
The Nelson Resort is simple honest accommodation (but far from 'resort' standard). It's location is very good being a short walk from the Nelson Bay CBD.
