Spent my birthday weekend recently at Oceanside Hawks nest with my partner sans the kids. Upon arrival we were given champagne, a box of very nice chocolates, some meal vouchers for their restaurant and to top it off - a discounted price on the already very reasonable priced accommodation! We had the hot tub room which we absolutely loved, gorgeous...

Spent 2 nights there with friends through a voucher purchase. We were given neighbouring rooms, champagne and chocolates on arrival, and vouchers for the Nelson Bay Ferry. The ferry was not working that day, but another company honoured the vouchers and we had a great ride across to Nelson Bay. The bar has a happy hour 5-6 and tapas between...

We had two wonderful nights at this seaside motel. Our room was a Queen on the second floor with a balcony and peek through view of the ocean. The room was smallish but cozy and had all the amenities that we wanted. The rate was so reasonable. The motel had complimentary bikes on site that we used to tour the...

The Oceanside is barely 100m from Hawks Nest's main beach. If you are looking for a nice holiday by the seaside on a budget then it doesn't come better than this. I really liked the bar area where you can relax with a drink and perhaps a game of pool (or is it snooker?). Contrary to what others have written,...

We stopped by for a night on our way between Canberra and Gold Coast. It was a great spot, right near the beach - perfect for stretching the legs. The woman at reception was friendly and helpful when checking in. She also later on came up to our room when we had a query about the air con. Our room...

Rude staff - extremely patronising and downright rude if you declare you have a coupon. Walk away from the money rather than waste your time and effort trying to deal with the staff to make a booking. If you must book here, DON'T tell them you have a voucher until the very last minute. This way you will get better...
