Our weekend at a time tour of the Lake Budgewoi area of the NSW Central Coast continues, and if it's close to Lake Budgewoi that you want, then the Hibiscus Lakeside Motel is the place for you.
Like many of the motels in the area it is on the older side, but it is exceptionally clean and well maintained. It's just close enough to shops, supermarket and the like - a 10 minute walk in one direction, or cafes, restaurants, and the local pub, 5 minutes walk over the bridge - but not so close that traffic noise is an issue.
We stayed in a lake front room, and easily the room's best feature is the view of the lake out the front windows. There's also a small veranda area outside each of the lake rooms, so you can sit outside your room and enjoy the view.
Our room also had a nice dining table, a writing desk, comfy queen size bed, a small kitchenette area, with kettle, toaster, and microwave oven. More crockery and cutlery is available from the office. The bathroom was roomy, and water pressure through the shower was great.
There are also "side" rooms, and while they appear to have no view to speak of, they are a little cheaper than the lake front rooms. The hosts, Nigel and Sally, were fantastic. We'd most certainly stay here again.
