A nice location with a clean room and ensuite, everything is supplied, it is basic, but you get a table, sofa and tv etc. There is a pool for summer. For the actual price it is great, especially as there is so much to explore in the region and you won't be staying in the room long. Just remember that... More

We spent one night here.We arrived a little early and the cleaning ladies did their best to clean the room for us quickly. The grounds are nice, lawn, pool and little playground. The room was clean but, like a lot of Aussie motel rooms, very dark. The rooms on the upper side of the slope probably get more light. Bathroom... More

Karri Forrest Motel in its day would have been modern. 2014 it is out-dated and very tired looking. A coat of paint, floating floorboards and new beds and furniture would see it looking the 4 star it boasts to be. The family unit we stayed in was spotlessly clean as was the shower and bathroom. Credit to the housekeeping staff.... More

Every moment spent outside the motel in the Pemberton was a pleasure, inside the Karri Forest Motel.... not so much. Whilst not the worst place we've stayed in, it really wasn't good. Between the food containers left in the bin from the last guest that attracted ants throughout the bathroom; the dirty blankets and dusty room that gave me the... More

This Motels customer service skills need improving, They don't make you feel very welcome. I arrived at the Motel at about 1.55pm and was given a key to the room, The room was messy with an un-made bed and there were still dirty dishes on the bench, The female who cleaned the room was wearing torn shorts and her overall...

Poor welcome at Reception on arrival. Motel OK for one night. Could park outside close by. Chose to eat at another motel where we were welcomed as non-residents. Pemberton's very hilly so you need a car to get to this motel.

This was a pleasant surprise in this small town of Pemberton WA. The room was large, clean and well maintained. We had lots of room to move ..,. a table and chairs inside for eating our light breakfast. They supplied a microwave and general utilities to make a cuppa. An outdoor setting on our balcony was great for that early... More

Not great for toddlers if you do want to prepare food in the room. Bring your own cleaning items for dishes and glasses etc. Bring your own coffee etc. Pleasant enough otherwise. Ok for brief stopover.

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
