We have had the opportunity to stay here twice during the last few weeks. Jo and Ron were helpful and friendly hosts and went out of their way to ensure we had an easy check in and very comfortable stay. The facilities are excellent and the area is quiet with a great pool and awesome water views. We would recommend...

Hi felix1808, thanks for staying at Haven Waters and thanks for the great review, we're glad you enjoyed your stay. You touched on a key word for Haven Waters - quiet. Coincidentally Jo and I are currently staying in an apartment and we couldn't believe how quiet it is. We're the apartment becasue the new owners Anna & Nathan have...

Recently had a return weekend stay at Haven Waters and once again found our stay faultless. Ron and Jo are great hosts, friendly and welcoming and the property is wonderfully located right across the road from beautiful water views with local clubs, restaurants being just a lovely walk away. The property has every amenity you could wish for and is...

Hi MollyCessnock, thanks for the the great review, double thanks for it's a second review. We know we must be doing something right when repeat guests are happy. North Haven does offer a relaxing atmosphere, a bit like the holidays of our childhood. Once again thanks for the review and thanks for staying at Haven Waters again.

Haven Waters is great value. The position is wonderful in that its right across from the river, with an easy walk to the beach and local shops/cafe. The rooms are very clean and the kitchen is well equipped. Ron was extremely welcoming and helpful!

Lovely place to stay the rooms where very clean and looked they had been upgraded fairly recently. We particularly loved the little kitchenette, this was the best design we have seen in a motel room. Would highly recommended this and would be more than happy to have an extended stay if we were in the area again.

Hi Barbara W, thanks for staying with us at Haven Waters, we're glad you enjoyed your stay. Thanks also for the lovely review. A lot of guests comment on the kitchenette in our motel rooms; 'it's sure is a lot easier filling a jug in a kitchen sink than a bathroom sink'. While there is plenty of space in the...

I stayed in an upstairs terrace room for 4 nights (26 - 30/10/16) with views of the river and Brother Mountain which provided good ambience with Sunrises/Sunsets being highlights! It was good value with 4 nights for $435 with daily room services and is a restful place for a Sydneysider to relax in. The Laurieton seafood Co-Op is a must...

There is nothing not to like about this excellent motel. The location is fabulous and convenient to many places in and around North Haven. The units are squeaky clean, up to date and spacious.

Stayed 2 nights whilst visiting friends in the area. Enjoyed a quick dinner at the Bowling Club next door (they own this motel). Tried morning walks in both directions alongside the river which was lovely. Room had a small kitchen area. Old style room, but comfy bed and plenty of hot water. Also enjoyed breakfast at nearby Appletree Cafe.
