Port Stephens Marina Resort
Ranked #13 of 16 Hotels in Nelson Bay
Reviewed August 27, 2007

I have recently stayed at Marina resort for two nights.
From the room, I could see the marina, and the sunset I saw from the balcony was incredible!
My room had a spa bath and a separate shower. I enjoyed the spa bath very much.
I found out the resort has a sauna, so I recommend you to take a swiming costume even if you're visiting during winter time.
The staff was very friendly, and their restaurant offeres nice & reasonably priced dishes.
The resort is also very close to the marina, so it's convinient if you're doing dolphine watching.

We booked this hotel based on the pictures and information we had seen on a website. From the pictures we thought the hotel was by the marina, but it is actually at a top of a hill and has buildings infront of it. The staff were helpful but it felt vary dated and needed a lot of modernisation.

We chose this resort for a short weekend break away from our respective children as it boasted a heated pool and we both love to swim if at all possible. Upon arrival the desk clerk told us the pool was heated by gas and was not warm enough to swim in because of the rain(am still not sure what was meant by this) and it really wasn't swimable through the winter months. Whilst everything else was as to be expected, the walls are somewhat thin and arguments which continued way into the early hours were clearly audible from above?nextdoor?nearby? On a more positive note, the walk to the lookout is a must, the views from the room were fantastic and there is a great little Thai restaurant in the main street near the cinema arcade...take your wetsuit and your earplugs and you will have a great winter escape...

Thank you to the staff of Port Stephens Marina Resort for our recent short break, neither my husband or I had ever been to Nelson Bay before and the staff made us feel very welcome and were helpful in advising us about things to do. The staff of the Ketch restaurant are to be congratulated on their excellent food and service. Week-end of 3/4 & 5th June , celebrating the start of the whale watching season, with its party atmosphere made our time there very enjoyable as there was so much to do in so little time. We enjoyed the dolphin cruise very much, however I think next time I'd like to go whale-watching. This was a surprise birthday treat for my husband and he thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. We'll definately make a return visit.
