There was a fan heater in the room that if you boiled the kettle at the same time it shut the power off, there were no power points on the wall where the bed was, the bed was uncomfortable, not enough pillows

This property was in pretty poor condition as far as cleanliness. The bed on the other hand was comfortable (appeared to be new) but the bathroom was mouldy and the shower leaked on the floor. I wouldn't recommend this hotel at all.

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
