My wife and I stayed here as we had got a great deal from an online discount site. We found the staff to be all extremely helpful and friendly the room clean and equipped with basic kitchen items and a very good restaurant downstairs and the option of pizza and pasta in the bar for those who want a easier option, close to the beach and a short drive to Tea Gardens it was a lovely 4 day break for us would love to be here in warmer weather to take advantage of pool and outdoor areas.

Room Tip: the spa rooms are nicer and more recently renovated but don't have kitchenettes

We had a lovely winter weekend get away staying at Oceanside. We had never stayed here before and were impressed with the cleanliness and facilities.
We had a queen bed room with a separate "living area" (kitchenette, lounge and dining) which included a pull out sofa for the four year old. We also had access to a HUGE balcony with a steaming hot tub.
The heated pool also looked inviting, although the biting winter wind stopped us from testing it. We ate three meals in the attached restaurant and bar area, and really appreciated the vouchers we received from reception that made this more affordable.
The staff were warm, welcoming and nothing was too much trouble.
The only con would be the age of the bathroom - it was clean but very dated and quite shabby. The bottom of the shower was quite streaky and perished.

Room Tip: Get the hot tub room!!!

We have been here a few times now, taking advantage of marketing vouchers which offer special rates and some discounts at the restaurant (a separate business) for a 3 night mid-week stay. The staff are always friendly and helpful, the rooms are basic, but clean and equipped with everything you need. On this, and one previous occasion, we have upgraded to a larger room with a hot tub spa on the patio and separate bedroom.

Room fittings are not luxury standard, but quite adequate for their function. A good sized fridge, small wall mounted microwave oven, full-size kitchen sink and cutlery/crockery for four, as well as the usual electric jug and toaster, mean most wants are catered for and the dining table in our room is a full size, with 4 chairs, but with room for 6. TV quality is not crisp and limited to the main free to air SBS, 10, 9, 7, 2 plus Foxtel 3x sport, Discovery, Music Max & Cartoon network.

We did hear some squealing from the plumbing on occasions, but the bed is comfortable and we slept well. This is a great place for an economical escape to the coast. Self-catering allows great savings, or just take advantage of the wide range of eating choices in Hawks Nest, Tea Gardens or a ferry trip away in Nelson Bay.

A winter getaway to the coast is quiet without being dull. This is a great base for exploring the Myall Lakes district or just lounging around in the winter sun, sipping coffee.

My family has stayed many times at Oceanside and we have never had any trouble with booking our stay, the reception people are very helpful and accommodating,with directions to your room and car parking.
The rooms are clean and tidy and housekeeping staff are more than helpful. We will be staying many more times on our pre paid vouhers. I am really saddened with M M as it certainly is not the case with the many times we have visited

Stayed here for our one year wedding anniversary on a scoopons deal.
We had mixed feelings for this property in the way it met our needs.
The room was large and quite clean, and had a good spa bath in the room. Very large balcony area, however due to rain all weekend we couldn't utilise it as it was not under cover. The property is very close to the beach and in a reasonable location. King bed was nice and comfortable and room was quite clean.
Our room ( 104) was directly above the pub beer garden, so very noisy in the afternoon right up until 9:30pm. If you are intending on having an afternoon sleep or are with small children this is a nightmare. Need to point out credit though as the noise did stop at the 9:30pm mark curfew and we were not bothered after that. Would be a great venue for party goers who want to 'can on' downstairs, but for a romantic retreat the noise downstairs is intrusive.

The scoopon program could be enhanced by the Ocean side by pointing out to the guest the 'extras' eg: champagne, chocolate, discount on food and drinks, bike hire, discount on ferry tickets etc. Though this was in the scoopon fine print, it is always good to receive coupons or tokens for these, or at least some information. We received zero information from the staff on check in and check out. The only interaction we had was being given the key, absolutely nothing else! The guest service could definitely be improved as it was very lacking. Due to this we were left to negotiate restaurant functionality and opening times and services. We were told by the downstairs restaurant that a pizza could not be delivered to the room and we had to come and get it.

It is a 3 star motel and that needs to be put into consideration. For a three star motel it was quite satisfactory. This was seen by the 15 pieces of toilet paper that was left on the roll on arrival ( just give us a fresh new one please!), the need to take own trash out of room and the stipulation that the rooms and towels would only be serviced every three days.

Potentially a good budget trip for people, however the noise from downstairs and the lack on service was a concern.

Debera M, Manager at Oceanside Hawks Nest Motel, responded to this review, 14 June 2014
Firstly, thank you for your comments.
You rang and said you would be arriving after reception had closed.The receptionist
gave you directions to your room,unlocked the door,turned on a light and put your key
and vouchers in your room. She also advised you to call into reception the following
morning to let us know that you had arrived safely and if you needed any advise on how to
use your vouchers. No questions were asked the following morning. As the vouchers are quiet
self explanatory one would assume you understood how to use them. The complimentary
wine was in your fridge and the chocolates on your bed.
Sorry about the 15 sheets of toilet paper left on the roll but we do try to be as cost effective
as possible to allow these cheap packages to be sold.Obviously with the rain you could find
little to do but count toilet sheets on your first wedding anniversary.
Written on your confirmation letter is advise that if you are staying on an internet package
your room would not be serviced if your stay is 4 days or less,but towels ect. could be
exchanged daily. It was also written on the registration form that you signed the following
morning.
