Just had 3 nights at Hawks Nest Motel. This is our second visit here. We have really enjoyed both times we have stayed here. The first time news with our son in an upstairs unit. This time downstairs as a couple. It's clean, has all the things you need. Friendly Staff. Will be back.

Free Wifi available, but I was using my own 4G modem (place has good Optus 4G coverage). Fridge was larger than usual, the only thing we missed is a stove top with bowls and frying pan. Slow cooker was provided... More

a little secret, this place despite the price offers great ambient, new appliances and a very helpful and friendly staff that makes you feel right at home. We have been in much more expensive places and felt disappointed. We will come back
