Very positive impression of this motel. We have had 2 rooms to suit our 2 kids and 2 adults in the family . Very clean place, clean linen, clean bathroom, generally great impression.

We have been there during onset of bad weather. So I am sorry I couldn't get the pool with the kids.
Managers are friendly.

A lovely little gem of a place. Clean attractive rooms and the bonus of a kitchenette. The pool and BBQ area are resort style. Enjoyed every minute of our stay. The owner managers Brett and Di were friendly and helpful - just what you need.

Stayed 1 week ago, intended to stay one night but extended to three. Myall lakes is so beautiful could have easily stayed for a week or more. Very clean rooms, pool area and bbq area (not very well lit at night, take your own bbq tools) also very clean, plenty of covered outside tables and chairs beside the pool where you can enjoy your bbq or watch the kids swimming. The motel is located just one housing block from the lake and a 5 minute walk to see the sun set behind singing bridge (so called because of sound made when the wind blows through). We captured an absolutely stunning sunset in perfect weather. Clean and comfortable, each room has a small balcony overlooking the pool, most do not have any lake views.
The kitchenette had a fridge and microwave, limited cutlery and crockery but enought for two. there is also a jug and toaster. There are shops within 10 minutes walk, supermarket, bottle shop, restaurant. It is a five minute driver over the bridge to the shops, pub and restaurants in Tea Gardens. The Boatshed just over the bridge serves up a great breakfast, reasonable prices, good coffee and water views.We would definitelyu stay here again but would like to see the sagging mattress gone and a new toaster. Great value and a special rate for 3 nights masde our extra stay even more enjoyable.

We stayed between xmas and new year. Cost was reasonable and location quiet.
Our room had a spa and motel has awesome new pool.
After the usual place we stayed had dropped standards we were happy to find this motel and will never go back to cockroach infested oceanside up the road.

Unexpected stay at this motel but it was so good, Ill be back
I hadn't called into Hawks Bay for many years and expected it to be ruined by overdevelopment, high rise, hoards of people but it is just the opposite. Still a 'villagey' atmosphere with all the amenities one needs for a few days enjoying a beach side recuperation.
Hawks Nest Motel is a delight. Elegantly styled, simple motel room with some cooking facilities. Open to the sunshine especially at the back leading to a private little balcony with table and chairs. Very clean and most comfortable bed.

Lovely quiet area in low season. Walking distance to shops, restaurant and two minutes walk to a lovely park and wharf of the Myall river. Great golf course and beaut club 3 minutes drive.

So many motels in such places have been taken over by big companies who employ staff who simply 'do a job'. Totally different here where it is obvious that the rooms, grounds and total area are kept as a place where guests can feel welcomed and appreciated. I found Jenny to be a most welcoming host.
I'll be back.

Thank Michael W
