“Biggest Rip Off Ever!”
Reviewed December 30, 2010

My partner and I booked the 1 bedroom penthouse spa apt.with foxtel, we wanted to spend a night somewhere to relax and chill. Firstly the main TV did not work and when we went down to office we asked for them to have a look. Well after going out for a bit and returning the office had closed at 7pm and nothing was done. The "foxtel" channels were not available even on the 1970 style tv in the bedroom-they were all fuzzy. The view looked over the parking lot, the pool that their website raves on about faces the bistro and is right next to the restaurant so everyone is right next to you watching you swim. The bed was hard, the entrance to get into the room was up shaddy back way. We had spent almost $200 for the room, DO NOT STAY HERE it is a big ripoff.

Chose this hotel because of its location. It is a 5 minute stroll to the RSL Club, where I was attending a conference. 10 minutes walk will get you to Nelson Bay shops and restaurants, while 25 minutes the other direction will bring you to Shoal Bay.
Took the local Port Stephens bus there from Newcastle Airport for $6.10 - ask the driver to drop you off at the hotel if possible (there is a stop in front of the hotel but it may not stop there on weekends). At the end of our stay, the reception staff very kindly organised for a shuttle to collect us from the hotel to the airport (The Shuttle Man - $45 for 2 people).
We stayed in a 1-bedroom penthouse, which was fine. Kitchen, dining table, washing machine, toilet and sitting room with big flat screen TV downstairs. Upstairs had the comfortable bed, small TV, another sitting area plus bathroom with spa and toilet. Airconditioning downstairs only, ceiling fan upstairs. Fittings were a little dated but everything was clean. Wi-fi is available, for a fee.
Had dinner at the on-site restaurant once, and breakfast once too. Dinner was OK, breakfast was great. The service was friendly but a bit slow.
All the staff were very obliging, and this made it a pleasant stay.

I love resorts that allow us to self cater and still provide a decent breakie cafe when you really need an egg and bacon roll.

We decided to have a self imposed long weekend and Port Stephens offered us the ability to be active or inactive.

We took our mountain bikes in case we felt like working off the food offered at Nelson Bay's cafes. The balcony room had plenty of room downstairs for us and our bike gear. Upstairs were the bedrooms and bathroom. Very clean and thoughtfully set up. The spa bath was very useful after a day cycling around Port Stephens.

The cafe was busy with locals looking for a reliable brunch place. We enjoyed the venue, service and location.

  • Liked — The space in our apartment.
  • Disliked — The toddlers in the pool
