Haven Waters Motel & Apartments

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 25, 2013

I've been a regular at the Haven Waters Motel for over 30 years and I'm glad to report it's now better than ever. It's beautifully situated on the Camden Haven River and handy to all amentities. It's also very comfortable and excellently maintained and operated by the current outstanding managers - Ron and his wife Jo. New silent air conditioning in each room is a nice improvement. The Camden Haven Area (ie North Haven - Laurieton - Dunbogan) remains a hidden gem on the mid north coast of NSW and the haven waters Motel is by far the best place to stay in ths wonderful area !

Thank you Milkfish for your review. Repeat business is something we strive for and we're glad you enjoyed your stay. The new quiet split system air conditioners are part of our continued upgrading of Haven Waters which we know will help enhance our guests stay.

My husband and I "ran away from home" for 3 days recently and had a great stay at Haven Waters.Our one bedroom apartment was large,airy and comfortable.Kitchen with full fridge,stove and microwave ,cupboards were well equipped for an extended stay.
Close to beach, shops and great walking tracks.
Managers were very helpful and friendly but not intrusive.
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and will return when next we need a break from our kids!!!!

Exactly the same experience as previous reviewer - had no idea where to stay and just followed our instinct. What a lucky find ! We stayed an extra day even though the weather could have been better - Ron was so extremely personable and helpful we felt at home immediately - will definitely stay here again if we're ever in the area and look forward to exploring the surroundings and wildlife without the rain !!

Thank you Roger and Brenda for taking time to write a review. We're glad you enjoyed your stay, obviously the weather didn't behave. It's great to see more international tourists such as yourselves dropping in off the highway to quiet spots like the Camden Haven.

PS we saw the ospreys last week.

Great welcome at reception. Efficient service. Good location, close to the bowling club. Being able to charge meals and drinks to your room at the club was a plus. A pleasant stay. The check out was equally efficient. No complaints at all. Would stay there again.

Ron and Jo are very hospitable and very welcoming. The stay made you want to return in the future. Location is very good and not too far from Laurieton shopping centre al though there are corner stores and petrol stations in close vicinity.
Good walks are available. Motel owned by nearby bowling club so once booked in at motel can have food and drinks charged to room. Keen- or otherwise- fishermen can cross the road and throw a line

Room Tip: rooms at back of premises would be quieter . However the traffic along front street is minimal at ni...

My partner and I stayed here on the 25th of August. We required an early check in and the receptionist was more than happy to help!! The welcome we got was fantastic especially as we are a young couple! We stayed in a room with a terrace, it was clean, comftorable and had a great view. The pricing was great too ($115 per night). The only fault I could pick was the outside spa needed a really good clean! I work in a hotel myself so it was easy for me to spot that the standard of cleanliness for that was shocking. The room was cleaned perfectly though. We had dinner at the bowling club which was delicious, well priced and the staff were great. Will definitely recommend both the hotel and the bowling club to others =D

Room Tip: The best view was from room 22 which is a terrace apartment.

we stumbled upon this jem by accident. often on a wing and a prayer you pull off the road and decide to give it a go. in this case it paid off in spades. hosts we warm and welcoming, rates were very reasonable, rooms were spotless and the location was perfect. nothing was to much trouble. we both felt welcomed and valued as guests.
i have no hesitation recommending this place to fellow travellers.
