Oceanside Hawks Nest Motel
Ranked #2 of 2 Hotels in Hawks Nest
Reviewed 31 May 2014

+Just got back from a great weekend at Oceanside, got a great deal paying only $120 per night off Oceanside website. We stayed in a deluxe spa room for 2 nights(we could have any room how's that) we also got a $15 worth of drinks voucher and $10 of breakfast plus a few other freebies we loved it. All the friendly staff, heated pool and spa, close to the beach and shops with its own restaurant and bar. already planning to go back..

Room Tip: if your travelling as a couple the deluxe spa rooms are great.

I didn't think that using a bag provided under the sink, for dirty clothes, would lead to my clothes to be washed, being thrown out by housekeeping into the commercial waste bin.

Which I, myself, had to wade through to recover them. After asking the manager what was he going to do about this, he offered a $40 voucher for breakfast. It was only on my suggestion the clothes be taken away and washed for me as well
Given this I asked him what deal would be done if I stayed another night and he said he had one room available which is usually $160 for the night and he would offer it to me for $130.

On this I checked out of this tired establishment where ceiling fans haven't been cleaned for years. Nice to have a spa at the pool but not so nice when you have to walk out of the pool complex to the BBQ area to restart it.

The whole place is tired and needs a upgrade for what you pay for here.

Shame because the place is in a great location near the beach.

The bag provided under the sink was for garbage NOT dirty clothes.The bag was left near the front door.The housekeeper assumed it was rubbish when servicing your room.
We washed and dried your clothes but not on your suggestion.We endeavoured to find your clothes as well,but you found them before us.
As there was no loss or damage to your clothes I am of the opinion that my offer of the breakfast
voucher and discounted room rate was more than sufficient compensation for the temporary
misplacement of your clothes.
The ceiling fan may have had some dust on it and I apologise for that.
On the matter of the spa pool button location, it was a government policy that it be located
outside of the pool enclosure.

Nice and handy location to the beach. The apartment we stayed in had a jacuzzi which was right above the restaurant. It got so noisy but after the mad rush at around 9pm. All is well, our stay as a family was pleasant, will choose this place again!

We have stayed here a few times and love it.. The staff are very friendly - especially Paul and Carina. We stay in the 2 bedroom apartments and love them.. They are spotless. The kids love the pool / slide and spa... Great Location! We will be back

Room Tip: 2 bedrooms are great!

My husband and I holidayed last week for 4 nights. We had the best most relaxing time for a long while. The staff made us feel like old friends so we felt very relaxed and welcomed. The beach which is 5 minute walk was so beautiful the sunrise and sunset was just stunning. We are looking forward to another stay very, very soon.

My family stayed at Oceanside on a groupon voucher recently and had the best holiday ever it was well worth the trip up the F1. The kids had the best time ever on the slide in the pool area which is well kept very clean. The rooms were clean and well presented and the staff and management were very friendly and helpful. We were a little worried at first as we had read reviews previous. On arrival we were comfortable they were very wrong. We will definitely return voucher or no voucher it was awesome and very close to the beach.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with balcony over the pool

it's advertised as luxury accomodation, although it's conveniently located, it's old and third rate! Cockroach in the bathroom! Got really bad service at the Benchmark Bistro and waited almost 60mins for food to arrive!.

Room Tip: ask for a room that overlooks the pool

Thank you for your response we are a 3.5 star motel. We do apologize for a cockroach being in your bathroom but we are on the coast and occasionally they are around. Had reception been informed it would have been rectified immediately. Benchmark on Booner is a Restaurant not a bistro and is an independently owned and operated business. Again we do not advertise as being a luxury motel as we are 3.5 star
