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

Our queen room was basic - clean and adequate. Decor is 1980s and needs updating. Owner warned us when we arrived that they had staying a noisy group from NZ - which was an understatement!! The NZs returned (2 mini buses of them) to the Motel around 2am, and yelled and carried on in front of the motel rooms for... More

We stayed three nights at this great Belmont motel. It is Clean and comfortable with the owners making every effort to ensure they provide all required to enjoy your stay. The cooked breakfast was really a good start to the day. Great value for the price and we would definitely stay there on our next visit to Newcastle.

My boyfriend had booked a night at the motel as we were out at Blacksmiths Beach for the day and didn't want to do the drive back to Sydney after a day in the sun. We went for what was available and reasonable in price given it was the long weekend. I wasn't expecting much, how I was wrong. We... More

This motel is well located, has a pool, very clean rooms, with a renovation program to update them. Rooms are basic Australian Hwy motel types. Just what you need if passing through or for a bit longer. What makes this place different from the other Hwy motels I've stayed at is the couple who run it. Vibrant, friendly people who... More
