We travel the Brisbane to Sydney route quite a bit and we like a stopover on the way. We usually stay at Taree or Forster, but someone suggested we drive a little bit further and stay at Hawks Nest. This is an ideal stop over location and the Hawks Nest Motel is the best of the bunch in the locale.... More

We had a lovely overnight stop here, very friendly and helpful staff. The room had a nice view looking out to the water, our room had the spa bath which after a very long drive was most welcome, the room had a small kitchenette which would be ideal if you were staying longer, very comfy bed.

It hasn't changed massively as a resort which is so special.The motel is in a great location and we had loads of space with the kids... More

I loved my four night stay and wished it could have been longer. It was very comfortable, clean, welcoming and excellent value. The ferry to Nelson's Bay is close by and it's an easy walk to Tea Gardens. The motel is centrally located for everything in Hawks Nest - beach, river, local shops and beach/bush walks. With such an active... More

We booked one night at this motel on a road trip from Melbourne to Brisbane, and comparing it with all the other ones we stayed in in different towns, this was my favourite, and quite a reasonable price considering it was early January. The room was clean, the décor was attractive and most importantly the bed was comfortable. We were... More

Warm welcome received when checking in. Quiet room with a view of the waterway. Clean with good facilities. Comfortable and spacious accommodation. Ideal location for both the ocean and the waterway. We walked to the waterway which was 2mins away and saw the Dolphins in the bay each time added bonus. Tip take the ferry over to Nelson, which our... More

I've been travelling on a budget. This motel was a delightful surprise. Comfortable, spacious - well serviced, BBQ, pool and new deck make for a relaxing outdoor space. We only had to walk 200m and caught flathead in the channel two evenings in a row. A great break in a very beautiful location.

The room has exceeded our expectation. We stayed at a 2 bed room apartment for 8 persons and were extremely satisfied by the spacious room provided. The room was very clean and all facilities were fully furnished. The owner was a nice lady whose also very patient in explaining to us about places of attraction around Hawks Nest. Overall all...

First-timers to Australia from USA, we sought a refuge from the predicted 40+ degree heat upon leaving our 3-night stay in Sydney. Head to the beach, we thought. Exploring north, having been steered toward Newcastle, we came upon Port Stevens. Many places in the region were booked, but what great luck for us that the Hawks Nest Motel had a... More
