A great location, spoilt by an establishment that has obviously seen better days. The room rate was, as a consequence, over-priced. Perhaps the owners are saving their profits with a view to refurbish the motel - let's hope so. In the meantime, I shall use the cabins in the caravan park opposite.

I find this a hard place to review. As another reviewer has said, the photos of this hotel look nothing like the room we had. Our room was clean, but very dated and the bathroom was incredibly small. In fact, fitting in the shower wasn't easy. The staff were really friendly and helpful - no complaints there. The hotel is...

These pictures don't even remotely look like the rooms we had there just 1 day ago. Admittedly our 2 bedroom apartment was booked using 'Scoopon', so was great value, but amenities like cooking facilities (only jug, toaster, fridge and microwave) in the room where missing, we only had 2 coffee mugs for 4 adults, no salt/pepper, supplies of sugar/coffee/tea not...

The location of this motel in Hawks Nest is hard to beat. Close to the beach, and walking distance from shops and golf club. Rooms are a bit dated and the bathrooms are quite small. The bar and restaurant downstairs are quite nice

Motel was situated very close to beach within walking distance. Staff when booking in were very helpful and obliging. Room was very clean , spa bath, air conditioned and very comfortable for our overnight stay. Outside spa and swimming pool was also an added asset at this motel. Recommend this motel for overnight stay.

Expensive, small, dirty, uncomfortable, claustrophobic, dark, rooms don't have fans - Windows hard to open, bathroom old and unusable, no air in bedrooms - like sleeping in a box. Plates and cups dirty. Very overpriced. The pool was good and there was a restraint attached. It is a short walk to the beach. But there are no views and we...

We booked a house in Hawks Nest that was available from the Sunday, so we booked a night's accommodation at Oceanside at a rate of $285 for the night. Expected the hotel room to look as per the website. We were put in room 404, which is NOT as per the website. The bedroom walls ran along the driveway and...

My family of four enjoyed staying here very much. 30 second walk to beach was fantastic, as was hotel pool. Two bedroom unit was adequately sized for a few days stay, and clean. Bathroom was tiny, and definitely in need of an update, but clean, and fresh towels supplied daily. Front desk staff lovely. Not 5star, but very comfortable. We...

Motel is basically ok if you dont mind dirty walls and stained floors. The living rooms & bathrooms are clean but are tiling and shower screens are badly marked. The ceiling fans had dust caked on them and the wardrobe had ground in dirt marks on doors. The outdoor furniture on the balconies are very stained and the tiled area...
