We stayed two nights at this motel to attend a conference in Forster. It is conveniently located on a thorough road but we did not experience any traffic noise. The owner/manager welcomed us personally and check in was a breeze. The room is reasonably sized with a queen bed that slept well., fairly modern bathroom facilities and a small kitchenette... More

Was in Forster for a family wedding this past weekend and chose to stay at the Best Western Lakesway. Everything was very good indeed. Owner (Will?) is a lovely guy and was extremely friendly and accommodating. Our request for early check in so we could change for the wedding was handled without issue. Upon checkout, the small touch of giving... More

Our room had a good desk in it if you needed do do any work there and had an enormous spa bath. Rarely have I seen a motel with... More

We had a Queen room which was clean and the bed was comfortable - not too hard or soft. Sink area, toaster, microwave - not so much cutlery. I think we had 2 knives and a spoon. So take bowls and spoons if you want to do your own breakfast. You will need to drive to the beach but you... More

Very clean and tidy, with crisp white linen and soft white towels. Excellent reception for fast Wi-Fi with no drop-out, a blessing when on business. Beautifully cooked breakfast with room service at the requested time. Thank you to all the management and staff for fantastic service and hospitality.

The bathroom very clean and the hot water is great with a good shower head. More plates were needed in the kitchen area as I took... More

I have never met such a kind and accomadating proprietor. My husband and I enquired about a room for the night after a long traveling day and Tim was such a bright spark and so helpful. We stayed in room 10 with the Spa (Tim upgraded us). The room was faultless. Spotlessly clean, even smelt lovely. The price was very... More
