2 minutes to the beach, great pool, cafe, bar & restaurant. Best pizza at the cafe. Chinese restaurant, bakery & newsagent 10 minutes walk or quicker with bike hire at reception. Rooms are older but clean & comfortable. No lift so 2nd floor a bit of a hike with luggage. Overall had an excellent time & would stay again

My wife and I badly needed a couple of quiet days away after a very busy time of our lives. Oceanside filled the bill perfectly. Very good accommodation deal online. Rooms simple, clean, comfortable. Staff very helpful and friendly. Loved all the vouchers that went with the accommodation, and used them to the full. Especially to the restaurant/bar next door,...

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...

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,...
