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

Just spent a few days in Forster over the Easter weekend. Stayed at Forster Palms Motel and enjoyed our stay. Found room to be clean and comfortable. Staff were friendly and helpful. Will definitely be staying here on our next visit to this area.

It's not very clean. We got out of there as fast as we could. Not all that central and didn't feel safe or secure. Foster it's self is beautiful though. Heaps for kids to do and the water is beautiful. Not a lot of clean well priced overnight stays there though.

Felt like I had stepped into a Hot Tub Time Machine and gone back to the 80's. Decor very tired. Dramatically over priced. Ants and cockroaches scaled the walls around us, and our room had a balcony with a lovely view of a smelly drain - was almost as bad as sewage. Left with a crick in my neck from... More

Average room with a lumpy bed and a strange smell with no complimentery team, and im a man who likes his motel tea. I was not keen to eat here but the thai restaurant down the road is pretty good. The woman at the front counter was lovely tho.
