“Great accomodation”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

Great accomodation in a quiet area. We were given a 2 bed with the 2nd room locked on the 2nd floor overlooking the pool area. The apartment was big and had all the comforts including wi-fi and tv. Huge bathroom and great shower, comfortable bed. We only had 2 nights so did not have time to use the pool etc but it looked a great area. Short walk to 2 beaches.

My husband and I have just returned from a 4 day break at Nelson Bay, his first trip away in 2 years after 2 back operations. We chose Marty's after reading previous reviews in Tripadvisor and they did not let us down. I booked a one bedroom apartment as that is all we needed but it was on the first floor. On arriving, my husband asked if there was by chance a spare room on the ground floor as he still has difficulty going up stairs. With no fuss, we were moved to a 2 bedroom dowstairs unit. The 2nd bedroom was locked, understandably so they didn't have to clean it, but the apartment was bigger and was ideal for my husband. We looked out on to the very pretty pool area, with a very clean barbecue area behind it. Reception is very friendly and helpful, the location is a few minutes walk to a lovely beach. It is in between Nelson Bay and Shoal Bay, so I had a choice for my morning walk, both beside the water. We had no trouble with the free wi-fi. Yes, the pool is not huge,but I don't know any smallish complex that has an Olympic size pool, and you're only a few minutes walk away from a lovely beach where kids can do all the swimming they want. They also have one pet friendly apartment. Dogs are allowed inside and there is a small fully fenced grassed area outside. A great place to stay. We will be back.

Hi to our Gosford Guests !
It was our pleasure in making sure that both yourself and husband were comfortable whilst staying with us. It was certainly no trouble in 'changing' the apartment for you. We have a saying at Marty's " that it is the little things that count" and we love being able to provide them !
Thank you for your fantastic review

We do apologise for the WiFi status. Unfortunately, the area does experience "downtime" but it is usually rectified within the hour.

Martys was a perfect place for a quick weekend getaway-we can't wait to come back again for a longer visit. Everything from the location,friendly & very helpful staff through to the spacious,exceptionally clean & modern apartment was a delight.
It rained 1/2 of our stay-this was no problem at all,the rooms are big enough & comfy for a quiet rainy night in with dinner & bottle of wine.

Highly recommend Martys,perfect for families,couples or even a girls weekend away relaxing.
Thankyou Sue & Jenn~your property is wonderful! Def value for money.

Our family of 4 spent 4 nights at Martys in a 2 bedroom ground floor apartment during April 2014 and absolutely loved it. The property is in a relaxing location within close proximity to two lovely beaches.
The ground floor apartments are absolutely ideal for a family with young kids as there is direct access to the fenced yard with a bbq area and a heated swimming pool which the kids made full use of even in the rain. And most importantly, everything was practical and spotlessly clean especially the bathroom.
The reason for 4 stars and not 5 is that they only changed towels every 2 days. After spending over $300 per night I would have expected the towels to be changed daily.
We also dined at the nearby Boathouse restaurant which deserves a special mention.
