A little dated, but very spacious, quiet and clean. No wifi. Easy walk to RSL club and 15 minute walk in to the centre of town. Easy parking right outside the room. It was quiet and comfortable and we slept well. I would stay here again,

Stayed for one night very recently. Had the buffet breakfast. Didn't have an issue with the buffet trays being empty for much of the time or the plates being dirty or the lack of cutlery. There was one lady in the kitchen who was both the cook and the dishwasher and the hotel was booked out. Our issue was with...

We stayed here using a Groupon which was fantastic value. The deluxe room was basic but clean and modern. Staff were great and helpful. Kids loved the pool which we had to ourselves most of the time. Recommended

Stayed for a Saturday night only so wasn't particularly cheap. Room was perfectly acceptable and location (#5) was right by the pool. Unfortunately there was no wifi in the room and only 4 channels on the TV so had to go out really!

A basic. clean hotel. About ten minutes walk from the main centre. Nothing outstanding, but nothing dreadful. Not to be confused with the Peninsula Hostel across the road which appeared to be a backpackers retreat. Close to the (RSL?) club for a cheap and reasonable meal.

Great value for money, room and bed was very comfy. Plenty of space to relax and enjoy the warm weather, staff were great and friendly. The restaurant served the best Chinese cuisine that I can remember, breakfast was fresh and plentiful. we'll definitely be coming back.

Had a very pleasant 2 night stay at Peninsula Nelson Bay. The room was comfortable & spacious but in need of some updating. The breakfast was very nice and plentiful. We had dinner at the restaurant and it was one of the best Chinese meals my partner & myself have had for a long time. The staff were nice and...

Great , our apt could have done with a refurbish in parts, but over all clean and all we needed. Fusion restaurant needs some management help ... breakfast is hit and miss with what is avail and a decent coffee machine would be good... staff are great but it feels they are a little overwhelmed. Fantastic food in the evening...
