We had a choice of places and was looking for reasonably priced accomodation and for the price we were quite happy. Had a kitchenette which came in very handy . There was a swim pool but we were so busy with other things we didn't get time.

Spent two nights here December 2016. Booked a room for 3 people. I was really surprised how much room there was. The motel and room were immaculate and for the money spent and closeness to the water (15 minute walk) we were really surprised and happy. All staff we interacted with were friendly and obliging. My only quibble would be...

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 room was large and clean and the bed very comfortable. We appreciated the extra pillows supplied and the generous range of tea/coffee making ingredients, and toiletries. 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...
