The shower had AMAZING water pressure. The spa was large and very good. The room was sizable and very practical. The gentleman at reception was very friendly and helpful. Only issue was the size of the TV - too small!

We were unexpectedly near Forster and needed somewhere to stay at short notice for 2 adults and 2 children. The BW Lakesway was just what we were after - somewhere clean, spacious and not far to amenities. Our host was friendly and helpful and the room, which had a queen, a single and a bunk, was comfortable and neat. The... More

This is an older style building but the building, rooms and outdoor areas were well presented. I stayed in a room with a spa which was clean and comfortable. The room had a queen size bed, table and chairs, fridge and a small kitchenette with working appliances. The bathroom was clean and well appointed. Despite being on a main arterial... More

A good place to stop with well appointed rooms. It's not fancy but it has all that's needed and it's clean and comfortable; not much more needed unless you want to go into another much greater price bracket which we have experienced in Forster. We'd choose to stay here again especially as the manager was so helpful. He went out... More

Compared to the high rise apartments in Forster: This motel allows 1 night (they require 2, 3 or even more), and is much cheaper; but is more basic, and an older style building and far enough from the town and beach to require travel by car. Clean and by all means satisfactory however.

Travelling with my sister we stayed here, only to find at check in was one queen bed, not exactly ideal ! We arrived late after a long drive to find the hot water for a shower was non existent, we figured the other guests must have used it up, so we got up at 6 to beat the rush...no luck... More

This was our first stay at this motel. The staff were both efficient and friendly. Our room was functional, clean and comfortable, and the environment was quiet. Open air car parking was ample. Recommended as being good value.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for two nights. Very friendly management with familiar athmosphere, very clean and best breakfast-service! Well-groomed facilities, green gardens. We enjoyed our stopover very much :-) A motel we would book definitely a second time!!!
