Lovely quiet room with relaxing colour scheme and spotlessly clean.Really helpful and friendly staff. A nice under cover area with comfy seating provides a great spot for coffee or drinks and a pool nearby adds to the appeal. No restaurant but the rooms have a small kitchenette with microwave.

Great location, just a short walk from a lovely beach. We had room 23 on the second floor and the room had kitchen facilities and a balcony. When we accidently locked ourselves out on the balcony the receptionist came straight up to rescue us. It is too far to walk to restaurants and the marina but if you have your...

I've stayed here a few times over the past year, the rooms are very nice with an Asian theme that you can feel throughout the whole hotel complex which sets it apart from the other accommodation venues in Port Stephens. The staff are friendly and are always up for a chat. The hotel is located a stones throw away from...

Stayed here for two nights. We were on the second floor and appreciated the balcony. The room was large and very clean. It had everything that we wanted, fridge, microwave, toaster, kettle, cutlery and crockery. We loved the Balinese theme and the decor in the room was really nice. It is in between Nelson Bay and Shoal Bay, easy walking...

The kitchenette was well equipped for making light meals and snacks and the table & chairs were a welcome addition. We liked our balcony too. The hotel is a walk from the beach...

Nice motel, Good price, Good value, close to beach and the West Diggers club. Friendly service. Accommodation on first floor have balconies which are a big plus. No lift. Good for a night or three. Would stay again. Swimming pool a bit small but nice, needs more trees around pool for privacy.

This was a one night stay. Room was large and airy with queen bed, lounge and coffee table, and a table and three chairs. Bathroom was large and fitted out for disabilities. Lighting in the room was good, my only problem was getting to a power point for my CPAP machine. I found one on the underside of the bedside...
