“Great value, location and accommodation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

This is a modern, spacious and well appointed property. The location would be hard to beat, the bed was great and the room quiet, the a/c kept the room nice and warm, the bathroom and shower were tops, and the staff very friendly and helpful. The room rate (we stayed one night) was very reasonable. We wish we could have had a longer stay.

We stayed at the 2-bedroom apartment (#6) for 1 night & it was lovely & exquisitely clean. It has 2 rooms (Queen & 2 singles) with a bathroom in between them with strong shower. The kitchen is well equipped with a microwave, an oven & a large enough frig to keep our left-over from Red Ned pies & Bud's Fish and Chips. The living room has a 3-seater couch & it opens out to the heated undercover swimming pool & a small children playground that my kids enjoyed playing. There is a BBQ pit near the children playground which we did not use. The tv has the standard cable & free channels. The free wifi has a good coverage but a little slow. The only "problem" we encountered was the heater/air-cond unit that is pre-set to 2 hours. So you need to constantly switch it on to keep the apartment warm in the middle of winter nigh. There is no heater/air cond in both bedrooms. Marty's is located in between the Little Beach (less than 3 mins walk) & about 5 mins walk to Shoal Bay beach. It is less than 3 mins drive to D'Albora Marina & the town centre with plenty of restaurants.
Marty's placed a little gift bag with compliments was a little extra surprise upon checking in.
The manager (I did not get her name) & the cleaners were very friendly. Overall a very clean and safe place to stay with kids.

We were really happy with our stay at Martys. It has been newly renovated and everthing was pristine and fresh. We also found the kitchen very well equiped. The pool was warm (winter months) so the kids loved it and I could watch them from my apartment as we were on the ground floor apartment. Having the extra TV in the double bedroom was great as I could get a break from the Foxtel kids channels! It's a 2min walk from two great beaches where one allows you to watch the sun set and the fishermen feeding pelicans. We also walked up to the lighthouse for lunch and loved the views from there. Overall a great location and fantastic place to stay.

Room Tip: Soem of the ground floor apartments are really handy for pool access.

The twin bedroom apartment was very clean and neat. Well equipped kitchenette allows us to prepare baby food for our little one. Perhaps heaters could be added so that it would not be so cold in the apartment during winter months.

~3hrs drive from Sydney.

Close proximity to wharfs for dolphin/whale watching tours. 20mins drive to shark and ray centre.

We stayed here for one night and will definitely be back. We stayed in an executive apartment and it was clean and very comfortable. The best so far! The rooms are nicely designed and the beds so comfortable. We can't fault this fantastic hotel. 10/10.

3 days/2 nights away with my adult daughters and husband for a getaway you want all the experience to be special and certainly the accommodation at Martys hit the mark. Beds comfortable, modern decor, decent sized TVs, well stocked kitchen, extremely clean and comfortable couches. Only downside was couple smoking on their balcony next door blew straight into our open windows and balcony doors but not sure you can change that situation. Maxene at reception was helpful and pleasant to chat to. Would definitely stay at Marty's again.

Location! Location! Spectacular Location!Quietly nestled between two of Port Stephen’s most idyllic beaches but still close enough to the heart of all the Bay’s great restaurants and attractions, Marty’s is in the perfect location to do everything or....absolutely nothing at all!Totally refurbished inside and out in August 2012 - you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the style, elegance and quality - not to mention the affordability!So when you arrive, leave the car (and your stress) in the car park - you won’t be needing them - and take a two minute walk west to stunning Little Beach. Soft white sand, perfect swimming for the kids, boat ramp and one of the best scuba diving spots on the east coast.A tad breezy today? No problem. Simply walk two minutes east and find a protected spot on the uncrowded Shoal Bay Beach - postcard perfect!Take a big deep breath in.... now exhale... and relax... you’re on holidays! ... more   less
