From check in, where my booking was not listed, but he kept saying it was, and trying to make me pay for a spa room, when I had booked a standard room, to the broken shower screen that collapsed on my arm, and the iron covered in thick gunk that he said was fine, (as he polished the cold iron...

Stayed one night - it was clean but very very basic - I think a bit over priced for condition of room - and shower needs a major revamp - within walking distance to bowling club (next door ) and centrally located to town but motel was very dated and in need of a spruce up!

We stayed here over the Easter long weekend, although the weather wasn't the best we still made the most of our stay. The motel room itself was spacious and clean. The bed was very comforable. It has everything you need including cable TV and a fully stocked mini bar which I found most other motels in Forster do not have.... More

Neat and tidy, so for the price I would stay again when passing by. Quite and convenient location even though on main street, central to everything. No need for upgrade to deluxe, standard is fine. Can negotiate on price.

This place isn't the Ritz but for what we paid we were impressed by the size of the room, it's cleanliness (given it's clearly an old building), and the quality of sleep we got. The service was also very friendly. However, it's not the best location in Forster - there are many more motels closer to the main beach and... More

Good size room. Well priced especially seeing we stayed the week of Christmas and they didn't put price right up. Comfy bed. Clean and and an easy wall to the main part of Forster. Service was fine and we were happy with everything. We only stayed the one night and if you are just calling through or spending a few... More

Only a one night stay, and as we were travelling asked if wifi included, and yes. Wifi did not work and he just showed me that it was on. We wanted twin rooms, so had to pay more than a double. Strange but OK. Then they put us next a room that was having airconditioner installed in. The workmen were... More
