As the reviews were a bit mixed we just booked our first night in Forster (you must call it Foster sorry). When we arrived just after dark Martin greeted us and took us into a warm room then said whoops you being from NZ I'd better turn the heating off. Yep it was toasty. Room was very clean and not...

We spent 3 nights here with our dog. The room was spacious and very clean. Some rooms on the ground floor are pet friendly. We had a queen size bed and two singles - one of which was covered with additional covering for our dog - was amazed. In fact we put our dog's bed on top of the single... More

An outdated motel that takes you back a few years The bed was fairly uncomfortable and could do with replacing. The walls are relatively thin and you can hear what is going on in the next rooms. Our welcome was very pleasant and friendly.

Very helpful and pleasant hostess. The room was basic but good and the airconditioner worked well on a cold evening. Parking right outside the room but a little crowded. The room was carpeted, very clean and the comfortable bed provided a good nights sleep. The bathroom window was locked a little open letting in a lot of cold air into... More

Wonderful management in this pet friendly motel. Older style but in very good condition, very clean and very comfortable. Small kitchenette, everything needed was supplied. Located right in the middle of town, walking distance to everything. Would happily stay again.

Helpfull manager. Had booked a downstairs pet friendly room but when we arrived the management had given the room to someone else! They were appologetic (included a continental breakfast for the mixup) and found us another room but it was on first floor. With a 15 year old blind dog this made negotiating stairs very difficult. Small corner room, very... More

We stayed for 4 nights. We were greeted with an excellent reception. We were made to feel welcomed immediately. Having our adorable pup was very much encouraged. Our pup was made to feel just as welcomed as we were. The room was very clean and odour free. The swimming pool very clean. Right in the heart of Forster. An excellent... More
