Hear what our residents think about Nellie Melba:

“My first impression when I walked through the doors was it’s absolutely amazing, then when I went through other parts of it I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. We’re looking forward to spending a lot of time here.” Bob, resident

“I couldn’t be happier. The whole complex, it’s just first class. It’s all I can say: first class.” Geoff, resident

“It’s just lovely. It was exciting to come in those main gates – I felt there should have been a trumpet blast or something like that to welcome us. It’s very exciting, a luxury beyond what I was expecting. People had said it’s like going on a cruise but you don’t pull up the anchor. It’s all here.” Maree, resident

“It’s absolutely fantastic. It’s better than I had expected, it must be at least a five-star hotel. It’s absolutely beyond belief.” Gerry, resident
