Just spent one night, the welcome was appreciated and the rooms are well provisioned. What impressed me was meeting travellers who were repeat customers. That "says no more". The highlight was the luxurious swimming pool. Local information was helpful. Thank you Jenny😊

My wife and I stayed just one night on a road trip through Eastern Australia and despite a huge thunderstorm and subsequent electrical blackout found the rooms and pool area to be clean and tidy and the staff helpful and friendly despite the difficulties.

Jenny, the owner is the very worst hostess in all of NSW. Stay home if you don't want your head bitten off by the insane owner of this place. She loses it at the most inane questions like, "what's the best place to eat around here?" Hard to believe but true. Rude, uncouth and totally unprofessional. People have issues but...

Jenny W, Owner at Hawks Nest Motel, responded to this review

In hospitality we are happy to serve, but not to be treated as a servant. I will admit I was abrupt to the question asked by the guest of "is it a good restaurant?" Not willing to accept reason or an apology the guest quickly became very aggressive both physically and verbally, following me to a motel room that I...

Nice motel with very good facilities to make you comfortable. But we had a bad experience, finding 4 cockroaches in our room at night, which for me is the worst thing can happen in an accommodation. And when we checked out and notified the girl at the reception, she didn't seem to care about it.

Nice clean, self catering apartments. We booked 7 all up. Varied from family room, spa room to basic double room. Well presented with swimming pool, bbq area and shaded area. Outside power so we even had our own music. Nice walks to Jimmys beach, over the bridge to Tea Gardens. Plenty of cafes and breakfast eateries.

We stayed at the Hawks Nest Motel last night. It was clean, friendly, quiet and helpful. It isn't a "flash" motel but we will stay there again when in the area. Its about 5-10 minutes to nearly everything. The only complaint was the metal lip near the from door that caught my wife's toe--not sure why it was there. Hawks...
