          Very dated room with very thin walls so you can hear the adjoining room conversations etc clearly. View from motel great but not worth the over priced tariff. Restaurant food not flash, very generous serves but very dated 80's menu.

          Wow! Who knew that there was a purposely built accommodation in Hicks bay with over 40 rooms! There are family rooms, bunk rooms, ensuite,... something for everybody plus a bottle store, bar and restaurant.

          We booked into the Hicks Bay Motel Lodge with reasonably high expectations but the rooms date back to the 60's, basic but clean. The food was also basic but tasty. Not quite what we had hoped for but its all there is in the area.
