No staff start work before 7.30am. Beautiful surfing beaches and pristine river, nothing to do? lovely national park, henceforth river cruises, canoeing, surfing, fishing, bushwalking, free bike riding for getting around to see wonderful scenery .Ferry trip to Nelson Bay on the beautiful Port Stephens bay. Our housekeepers use only environmentally friendly chemicals to which there is no nasty smell.

This was a return visit to Peaceful Hawks Nest. Everything was excellent - hosts, accommodation, environment and breakfast. The friendly hosts and excellent accommodation made it worth the extra travel.

We purchased the deal from Groupon, which included a box of chocolates, a bottle of wine, late checkout, and a few coupons for discounted activities in the surrounding areas. The Groupon deal was advertised as a romantic getaway, and we were expecting that when we...

This is quite a nice place with a lovely tropical setting. However we booked a one bedroom suite & was put in a smaller motel room. I'm assuming they did this because the whole motel was booked out with a conference going on. I don't like being screwed over or dishonest management. The room & bathroom were small but that...
