What You’ll Love...

The Hotel – An elegant haven in the heart of Soldiers Point

Celebrating its grand opening in September 2018, Bannisters Port Stephens follows the popularity of the iconic Bannisters by the Sea and Bannisters Pavillion in Mollymook – and is the brand’s largest property to date.

Surrounded by water and swaying eucalyptus trees, the emphasis here is on unwinding in style, sleeping in luxurious king rooms with tranquil treetop views and dining in a choice of two on-site gourmet restaurants, including an eatery by celebrity chef Rick Stein.

The cherry on top is the addition of an infinity pool, offering spectacular vistas of the bay and the perfect place to relax with a drink in hand.

Bannisters Port Stephens has another addition to its facilities, opening in June 2019: a blissful Day Spa - with spaces designed by Romy Alwill, light pink tones and coastal textures. A place to soothe away stresses, the Day Spa will offer an extensive range of facials and treatments to achieve the ultimate relaxation.

The Room - Tranquil treetop views with ocean-view and family upgrades available

Nestled into Soldiers Point, your Paperbark Room is the perfect place to relax and enjoy quiet bushland views – you may even spot a koala from the comfort of your balcony!

Rooms on top level feature skylights, meaning you might be lucky enough to enjoy an amazing natural light source during your stay. Each room features a king bed with luxury linen, which can be separated to create a twin share.

VIP Upgrade: Special occasion coming up? Upgrade to an Ocean Deck Lower Level Room, a stylish haven fitted with a king size bed and luxury amenities.

Family Upgrade: If you are a small family looking for an exquisite getaway, the Paperbark Family room is perfect for you, with one child (aged five years and under) or an extra guest staying for free, sleeping on a single bed with breakfast included.

Food & Drinks – Daily breakfast at Rick Stein and an AU$100 hotel credit

Your escape in this sun-kissed location starts with a glass of sparkling wine on arrival, to celebrate your holiday. You will also enjoy complimentary snacks and non-alcoholic beverages from your mini bar, which is replenished daily.

Begin each morning with an included continental buffet breakfast at the iconic Rick Stein restaurant, featuring a variety of tasty dishes including pastries, chia and yogurt puddings, cold meat and cheeses, juices, teas and coffee.

When you are not exploring the area’s vibrant dining scene, head to Rick Stein’s restaurant to experience an array of the celebrated chef’s signature dishes inspired by the aquaculture of the region.

You will also receive an AU$100 hotel credit to spend on anything you like, from decadent dining at Rick Stein’s restaurant, to drinks at Terrace Bar or for spa treatments at the Day Spa from June 2019 onwards. Please check 'Fine Print' for more details.

Book your stay from 1 May 2020 onwards and receive a bonus inclusion - enjoy one complimentary pizza to share at The Tavern, the hotel's traditional pub located just 50 meters from the beach.

See & Do – Explore the Port Stephens area

Take in the most spectacular views over Port Stephens from Gan Gan lookout, or enjoy activities amid nature such as hiking and fishing at the gorgeous Tomaree National Park. Pay a visit to Nelsons Bay, boasting a variety of boutique stores, cafés and restaurants for you to check out.

Nature lovers will be spoilt for choices in Port Stephens: if you are travelling between May and September, you will likely spot Humpback whales migrating from Antartica to the warmer waters of Australia - a spectacular natural show that you will never forget. You could also get up close and personal on an unforgettable swimming with dolphins experience in the open ocean.

For the romantic ones a sunset cruise is a must: picture yourself gliding across the calm waters of the bay, sipping on a glass of sparkling as the sun sets on Port Stephens.
