Welcome to The Nelson Resort and Conference Centre, a stylish and modern boutique style resort in Nelson Bay.

Stay with us in the heart of Nelson Bay and have a real holiday, one where you can walk 2 minutes to everything that makes the Bay great - stroll to the cafes for coffee, town centre for shopping or the Marina and its boats, bars and restaurants. We are also close and within walking distance to two iconic beaches - Nelson Bay & Dutchies.
Or if you prefer to relax then there is no need to leave our resort. Lounge by our solar and electric heated pool, work up a sweat in the gym, or just relax on your balcony and watch the world go by. Our rooms have all been renovated extensively and designed by interior designer Amanda Beazeley, and all now offer new Sleepyhead Pillowtop Beds, LCD TV’s, Foxtel and balconies. If you are celebrating a special occasion, consider the best room in town - our top of the range 1 Bedroom King with Spa.

The Little Nel is open every day, serving barista made Suspension espresso (the little roaster in Newcastle with a huge following), plus a super cafe breakfast and lunch menu that is now a favourite with Nelson Bay locals. Try our herbed mushrooms with fetta on sourdough, the amazing zuchini fritters or our now famous eggs benedict.
