We booked the Karri Forest Motel on the internet and we were not disappointed. The motel is a few blocks away from the main road, within walking distance of the Gloucester Tree. The motel is set in quite nice grounds, quiet with a BBQ area and a small swimming pool. The rooms all have a balcony and ours overlooked the... More

This Motel is one of the BEST Motels you'll find in Western Australia !!! It's located a little bit outside of the city and thereby a perfect place . The staff is VERY friendly and helpful. An absolute top restaurant with excellent wine (Silkwood Estate). Free wifi and a nice pool makes a perfect stay complete. Jacqueline & Ralf Germany

An older style hotel, yes, but kept clean and tidy, the staff and manager were friendly and helpful, they even opened up the restaurant for us on a Sunday night, and the meals we had to eat on each of the three nights we were there were of very high quality, not fancy but well cooked, lovely fresh produce and...

I too am not one for negative reviews and always look to the bright side of things...so here goes. Yes I must agree with other reviewers - our greeting wasn't the most welcome - almost as if I was disturbing his quiet afternoon. We made our way to our room....rusty aircon unit outside, cobwebs, leaves...but once we opened our door... More

I don't like writing a negative review but I do need to mention that although the room was clean and comfortable the manager who booked us in needs to improve his customer service skills - urgently. The restaurant had 3 tables being used (we could see though the windows) but we were informed they were booked out and to come... More

This motel was terrible and it should be knocked down. When my partner and I arrived, the reception was dark and no one was around to greet us. Instead a bell was on the reception counter with a message saying to press for service. A couple of minutes later after pressing the bell, a male came to the counter. This... More

Stayed here for a week as we could self cater. The whole place is a bit old and tired, however it is in a good location, is clean and tidy except for the powerful room deodoriser that the cleaners used. Asked not to use it they complied without question. Our room had an old in-the-wall air conditioner which we didn't... More

At the reception, we waited for quite some time after ringing the bell at the desk. And the "manager"(only person there with no name not bother to greet and introduce himself). Rooms were dirty, with cobwebs all over. We rejected the room and he threw up a big fuss. Rude and idiotic maniac with a huge ego! Don't ever go... More

We were just stopping for one night and needed something easy, cheap and cheerful. This is it. Nothing special but perfectly fine. Very clean. Walls are not very sound proof and an unpleasant odour wafts by occasionally. Also smelt this same odour around town and it would seem the septic tanks are perhaps still in use here ?? But the...
