wonderful old world place just like my childhood holiday places, our unit was at the front and we had fantastic views the children were on the beach the whole time and we played cluedo and cards of a night, very little time in front of the tv, a great family experience.

Noisy non private accommodation. Not only paper thin walls but the least peaceful accommodation Ive stayed in for years. Price meets the standard. This is low budget accommodation nothing fancy. Relatively clean and tidy but a time warp decor experience. The best is the very comfortable need mattresses. Not for romantic getaways. Easy access to main beach and walking distance... More

We came up for just one night and would have loved to stay longer! We were here several years ago and weren't sure what to expect! But it was better than we remembered! We stayed in Unit 6- upstairs in front overlooking the Forster Main Beach. The facilities in the room seem to be revamped from previous reviews - it... More

Out your door, over the street, and you're at the beach! The building might be dated but it is clean and well kept. For self-catered accommodation it is perfect. It is certainly not five star, but the location outweighs that. Only a 5 min walk in to town as well. I would definitely recommend this place to friends

This is a standard old style beach holiday self caterer. Booked on short notice in high season & was reasonably priced. The manager was very helpful on booking as I had originally enquired about some where else & when he heard I wanted to be within walking distance of a family apt. he suggested this. Great spot for beach, clean,... More

An old building housing about six units and not far from demolition given the quality of surrounding accommodation. The units are comfortable and clean, they have air conditioning but it doesn't work very well. The owners obviously recognize this because our unit had an additional portable air con. Bathroom, kitchen, and in general all the unit has a fifties decor.... More

Located directly across from Main Beach and Pool, you couldn't get a better location. Reasonable price, maybe a little on the high side compared to quality of other apartments in the area, however, still cheaper. Older Style. Would be very easy for the owners to freshen up the interiors. Amazing view from the shared balcony.

We stopped here for the night, having seen that another motel we had chosen from tripadvisor reviews, was fronting onto a very busy road and away from the ocean. It being off-season, the place was empty, although the owners live in the building. We found them pleasant and accommodating. Would be a bit nervous staying here as a single traveller... More

The i-Site office in Forster worked very hard establishing availability for the night, and of the choices offered we went for this property as it was ocean front, had catering facilities and near to restaurants, should we choose to eat out. The unit had a reasonable living area (flat screen tv) with kitchen - 4 electric rings and oven, a... More
