I loved this place. The staff were friendly, its in a great location and its VERY clean. Its not flash but its nicely done and has everything you need. There's a little kitchenette with a fridge and microwave, the bed was comfy and the shower was good. There are laundry facilities and there is a lovely pool at the back.

There are shops a few hundred meters away and its an easy walk to Jimmy's Beach and Bennets Beach which are beautiful. Tea Gardens is a short walk over the bridge where there are lovely cafes and takeaways. If you're lucky, you'll see dolphins playing in the water while you walk!

Definitely recommend the Hawks Nest Motel and would happily stay again.

Room Tip: There is a ground floor and first floor so it depends what you prefer. Either is fine and its quiet.

We stayed 2 nights in a ground floor unit. Easily accessible shower with a great hot water system. Modern airconditioner which serviced the room well. Very attractive pool area. We would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Ground floor was nice and quiet.

The motel is 1 1/2 hours north of Caves Beach. The location is great, once you are there you can walk to shops, beach and Restaurants. The Ferry Wharf is just around the corner and the trip to Nelson Bay is enjoyable. The rooms are air conditioned, have Kitchenettes and a balcony. There is a lovely pool and BBQ area. The rooms were very clean and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was quite large with a shower recess only. There was plenty of parking within the grounds. We had a room upstairs that had a view of the river and the pool. There was a table inside and one on the balcony.

Room Tip: Rooms 10,11,12 had river views and also overlooked the pool.
