My boyfriend and I decided to make a 6 hour spontaneous trip the Nelson Bay. After struggling to find somewhere to stay and driving around getting lost we stumbled across The Nelson. We where greeted by a friendly staff member who gave us the option of available rooms that we could have. We opted for a room on the 2nd floor on the town Centre side. The room was amazing. Spacious, very clean and simply just amazing. Location was awesome, being a 2 minute walk to the marina, restraunts, town Centre and not even a 5 minute walk to the beach. The pool was great - loved the shelter, free from the sun and bugs etc. We played a hit of tennis - even managed to lose a ball due to my amazing tennis skills :p - was prepared to reimburse for the missing ball but was told not to worry about it as it happened a lot and had a great laugh with the 2 lovely receptionists about my terrible skills.
We booked a deep sea fishing trip for our last day and realized that we should have booked our room for an extra night. Although we couldn't keep the room we originally had, we where upgraded to the 3rd floor into a spa room on the road and as our fishing trip started at 6 am, the staff members moved all our luggage to the new room and was all ready for us when we returned that afternoon. The new room was great with a beautiful view of the ocean. Balcony door was a bit hard to open. But once shut could barely hear any of the road noise. Overall we both really enjoyed our holiday and it was topped off by the amazing vibe that The Nelson had. The staff where all amazing. Cafe did great coffee and breakie. Great room and location. Will definitely be recommending this place to everyone I know. Thanks to all of The Nelson staff for making our trip a very memorable one - even the happy, chirpy maintenance man. We will be back for sure.
