We arrived at the Forster Motor Inn thinking we might have mad a mistake, one's first impression is of a rather dull complex squeezed into a side street of this seaside resort. However, in the end, the Forster Motor Inn won me over. We were travelling from Brisbane to Sydney and Forster was our final stop before the big city.... More

Stayed here overnight on a family roadtrip heading south to the snow. First impressions of the motor inn on the outside were average - but that was the only concern. Staff were super-friendly and keen to help with dinner and breakfast suggestions, and the room was clean, comfortable and tidy. Top marks for the shower (I'm a fan of a... More

After reading the reviews and needing an inexpensive place for an overnight stay, my wife and I booked Sunday night at the Forester Motor Inn. I booked a week early by phone and a short time later sent an email requesting booking confirmation. A second request was sent on Thursday with no response so a phone call later that night... More

What a surprisingly great place to stay! The rooms were a little dated, as is the exterior, but it was a comfortable bed in a clean and tidy room! We stayed overnight but you could easily stay a little longer! The staff are very friendly and courteous.

Don't be turned off by the outside decor of this motel, because the friendly service, locality to shops, restaurants and beach more than make up for it. We stayed in a family room on the ground floor, with parking out front, just across from the newly renovated, sparkling clean pool. The room, though outdated, had been well-maintained and was spotlessly... More

This was one of the best motel I have ever been to. I had really good service from the manager and there was never any disturbance from any other people there and I found it very peaceful and relaxing. I recommend if you need somewhere to stay come here. Its also central and pet friendly

My wife and I stayed here with our 10 week old baby for two nights at the start of our road trip to Queensland. It is clean, tidy, very close to the town centre and lake, but the best bit is the value at only $140 for the two nights. It's not fancy but doesn't try to be, just a... More

Motel room, with ensuite bathroom. Room came with tv, microwave, toaster bar fridge, kettle. Walking distance to great beaches and great town. Quite close to the main street of shops. Perfect for a one night stay.

Exterior of the building was not very impressive but the room we were offered was delightfully clean, well renovated and well equipped. We were really impressed with the facilities and also with the helpfulness and friendliness of the staff. Highly recommend if you're looking for a budget and comfort.

Comfortable and clean. Helpful owner. Value for money. Would definitely use again. Walking distance to restaurants and shops and great ocean baths. Our room even came with microwave, although we did not use during our short stay.
