It was not as noisy as other pubs I have stayed at. The food was nice and reasonable. All the patrons in the pub know each other and was curious as to who I was so introduced themselves to me which was nice. My room was comfy & the shower had good pressure. The best thing was the beach which was walking distance and a beachside cafe which served amazing coffee & food. As it was Easter weekend, everyone goes to Nelson bay which makes Stockton a little more quieter which was lovely. Even though the camping ground was full, it did not seem overly busy. Just a lovely atmosphere. The local residents tending to their gardens all like to say hello to passers by. It seems like a nice, safe community. I will definitely try to stay again.
