It is always a pleasure to stay at the Aquarius Motel. Michael and Elizabeth are wonderful hosts who go out of their way to ensure their guests comfort. I have been staying at the Motel whenever i am passing through Newcastle for a couple of years now and have always found the rooms to be spotlessly clean and any requests... More

This person and his girlfriend did not stay at our motel and was asked them to leave upon entry due to his foul language and behaviour. He then proceeded to make constant nuisance phone calls and threatened to physically harm my wife. Police were contacted and heard the phone calls through conference call. Police have a report of harassment on... More

The Aquarius Motel at Belmont NSW is a basic but very clean and comfortable motel. I have stayed twice in recent months and I will return in the future. The charges are reasonable. It is a Family owned Motel.

I had just come up for a couple of days to see the family I have here. When speaking with the management, they seemed very polite and helpful with all my questions and needs. The room was in great condition, very well looked after. Happy to stay there when I come back up :)

Stayed at this lovely little motel on our way up the coast. The hosts are the loveliest people, the rooms are spotlessly clean and comfortable and it's located in a great little spot between the beach and the lake. Great breakfast included and real coffee bean coffee available.

We recently went to meet friends from Melbourne in Newcastle and decided to stay in the area an extra few days. We chose to stay near the lake as my husband fishes. On recommendation of the fabulous hosts of the Aquarius Motel, my husband took to the lake in pursuit of a big catch and I went to the very... More

I'm not quite sure what all these other people are talking about but I had quite a negative experience. Basically, the place is a dump. $120 is a bit rich for a dirty 1980's tattered motel. Wreaked of smoke, scabby looking and who ever was responsible for cleaning forgot behind the bed where the electrical plugs were. There was a... More

WOW!!! That's quite a story.When people don't get there own way, they usually throw a tantrum which is what we have here. Now for the facts....Booking was made in the name of Alanna, and Alanna checked in. Approx. half an hour after check-in a guy (says he was the boyfriend) approached reception and asked for a refund saying that the... More

For those of you that know the fabled Porpoise Spit, we felt like we had arrived. The motel looks a little quirky for want of a better word, but it is certainly neat and tidy. We stayed on a saturday night in early august and were satisfied in every respect. The owners advised on the best delivered food options if... More
