Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This motel exceeded expectations. Good location, super clean. Attentive owners gave dining suggestions and helped us charge the EV. Kids used the pool. 20 min walk to ocean beach. BBQ area was also clean and well equipped. Good rooms for our group. Thank you!

Great motel in an excellent location. We stayed 3 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. Across the road from the water where plenty of picnic tables can be found. 500 metres along the break wall to a nice beach or go the other way to the local cafe's and shops. All this on a nice flat path. The motel room was spotlessly clean and very well maintained. The beds were new and very comfortable. Also had a small kitchenette with microwave, toaster etc. Plenty of plates and cutlery as well. The pool was very clean and was attached to one of the best motel BBQ areas I have seen and we ended up using this BBQ area twice. If you don't want to cook there is the local bowling club a 100 meters away.

Thank you so much Jeff. Really appreciate you taking the time to review our motel. Such a fantastic review too! So glad you enjoyed your stay. We are very lucky to live in this part of the world and to have great staff who work very hard to keep this "old" motel (circa 1972) in the best condition we can. Hope to see you again sometime. Safe travels and thanks again.

We booked a twin room for an overnight stay on our way to visiting our NSW based daughter. It was very clean, quiet, and the kitchenette was a bonus. Comfortable beds. The beach at North Haven is lovely, and we managed to fit in a swim there as well.

Driving from Qld to South Coast stopped at half way point & couldn’t have picked a better place. North Haven Waters is the cleanest & most comfortable motel we’ve ever stayed, hence on our return trip we booked again. Lovely river walk opposite with Brew cafe walking distance for dinner… can’t go wrong with friendly managers

We had been told about the prettiness of the area and decided to stop here overnight at the Haven Waters. We had a beautiful apartment upstairs with lovely water views; it was spacious and clean. We were very much looking forward to spending the night here but the weather had other ideas! Unfortunately the howling winds (causing the bathroom extractor fan to flap) and drumming rain kept us awake much of the night. This was just unlucky, because we would love to come back here for a few days in the next dry period, and enjoy the lovely accommodation and district.

Great location, very clean and close to all amenities. Sandy & Richard were the perfect hosts - very helpful & friendly. We originally just booked in for 1 night as a stop over on our way to Sydney. Enjoyed it so much, we decided to stay another 2 days! Well worth it. We will be staying here again at some point in time, definitely.

An enjoyable stay at a nice motel requires a few key things things: 1. Welcoming hosts and staff. 2. Clean and well cared for spacious rooms in an attractive setting. 3. A very comfortable bed. Haven Waters gives all three of these and much more – and we have stayed three times – most recently for four nights. Sandy and Richard (owners and managers) provided us with with a jolly welcome and a superb and genuine ‘three star’ stay at what we thought was great value pricing. Beyond the three things mentioned above mentioned, Haven Waters’ pretty and nicely maintained grounds include very large parking spaces for every unit and a swimming pool that is beautifully maintained by professional pool contractors (we saw them at work). Just across the road is the Camden Haven River with an enjoyable totally flat riverside walk of 1400 metres to the river mouth, surf beach and adjacent surfside cafe – that is very popular every morning. We saw none, but the locals said that with just a little luck dolphins often can be seen. The area of Camden Haven (that includes North Haven) and Port Macquarie is full of lovely spots and enjoyable walks – ranging from ‘mountain tops’ to remo lighthouses to bushland and beaches. We ate and ‘coffeed’ at Brewhaven Cafe (two minutes walk from Haven Waters – and across the road from the modern looking Club North Haven). Brewhaven is open all day every day (including for dinner) except on Sunday it closes after lunch. We found the food quality and prices at Brewhaven to be very good indeed – and the coffee (from Nine Yards Coffee, Brookvale) was simply outstanding – as wa NCs their very friendly service. Thank you Sandy and Richard and also thanks to your very friendly staff members. All in all we had a very enjoyable few days. For the information of readers, we discovered a while ago that when booking it is worth contacting Sandy or Richard direct by phone or using their own Haven Waters website. That way you can see any special offers that are available – these can and really do provide pleasing savings.
