Very good 8.0
Hotel is very conveniently located, with a back door leading to a shopping arcade with a chinese restaurant located immediately outside the back door. Kettle has mineral deposits though. Aircon was a tad noisy too.

Exceptional 10.0
Very accessible location with amenities all around. There’s a heated pool that you can dip into as well! The bed is on the softer side but we’re cool about it. Not to forget, the little mel cafe serves excellent breakfast! Definitely choose this hotel if I return to Ports Stephen :)

Lovely hotel and lovely place to visit!
Judith, au2 night trip
Very good 8.0
The layout and location is great. The cafe 'Little Nel' is amazing. It would he great if they could do a breakfast rate at hotel to include this. The only downside was no staff around over night. The room next door to us was having a party with multiple guests. I believe this was just bad luck so will definitely stay again
