Blackswan Waterfront Motel

The best of Lake Macquarie and the Beach

Black Swan Motel

The BlackSwan Waterfront motel is proudly Australian owned and operated. We offer clean comfortable accommodation at a reasonable rate – whilst we are not a budget motel we offer value for money.

The BlackSwan sits in a unique position on the absolute waters edge of Black Ned’s Bay – a tidal bay feeding from Swansea channel and the Pacific Ocean. Situated in the heart of Swansea, the gateway to Lake Macquarie where you have the best of each the lake the beach.

The BlackSwan is an iconic part of Swansea and all rooms have been maintained to the standard expected of motels these days. With one exception – the BlackSwan has a special ambience that other motels fail to offer.

The BlackSwan is 3 Star Rated and is a member of Lake Macquarie Tourism.

Rooms with a view

Quiet waterfront and garden rooms for singles and couples.


Pleasant facilities

Water frontage with private jetty for guests use.

Great location

Enjoy our prime Lake Macquarie location close to all local attractions.


We have both waterfront and garden rooms. Most are set for doubles or twins and as the waterfront is not fenced is suitable to singles and couples. We are an adult only motel. No pets allowed.

We believe a motel stay is more then sitting in a room looking at a wall. At the BlackSwan you have room with a VIEW. Enjoy our quiet waterfront rooms – watch the tide change from your bed. Our garden rooms have something to offer with our well designed garden beds and a few steps around the building is the water frontage.


The BlackSwan Waterfront Motel has its own jetty for guest to use and enjoy. Many guests both individual or groups make use of this by mooring their boats for the stay.

All rooms have off-street parking – each guest parks outside their door – and on-site parking arrangements can be made for people with boats, vans, trailers, coaches etc.

What others are saying about us


Cosy accommodation

Nice cosy place to go. Easy access to amenities and places to visit. Steve and his wife always smiling and helpful. The breeze that comes off the water is fabulous. The jetty and chairs out the back makes it feel like your own yard. Recommended stay.


Second visit

Stayed here again overnight on our way back to South Coast. Great value for money, convenient location, beautiful view of the lake (at your back door). Lovely to have your breakfast in the sunshine overlooking the lake. Very clean motel. What more can you ask for. Karen and Steve are very friendly and helpful.


Ideal motel

Right on the waterfront, with the friendliest owners we have come across for some time. The rooms are spotless and have everything you need – comfortable beds, hot water, reasonable rates and within an easy walk of several eating places. Thoroughly recommended.
