They Lake Forbes Motel is immaculately clean and when we arrived an hour early the owner kindly allowed us into our room. The room and bathroom were spotless and with no smells at all. Heating was terrific and electric blankets to warm the bed. The shower was hot and with plentiful. Our ONLY caution would be to take your EAR... More

When I arrived I was welcomed by the owner: lovely man. Friendly and attentive. Nice and cozy room, neat bathroom. Probably what I loved the most was the electric blanket available, which I only realised was there when I went to sleep. Nice treat!

Although this is an older style property, I found the room to be very comfortable and clean. Exactly what I was looking for, and the right price, during a roadtrip from Melbourne to Brisbane. It is set in a lovely location right next to Lake Forbes. I enjoyed an early morning walk around the lake. I visited the motel during... More

We stayed here for one night while traveling to Mildura. The owners and staff were very friendly and made us feel very welcome. We had a choice of two queen size rooms. We choose the larger one. This would have to be the cleanest room we have ever stayed in. The bathroom was a good size and spotless. Good size... More

The welcome you get makes a big difference, and we found the boss a very helpful and pleasant bloke. Clearly this place wasn't built yesterday, but it's spic-n-span inside and out. The exterior has pleasant gardens and a nice pool area. Our room was well decorated and maintained, and super-clean, with all the facilities you'd expect. As good or better... More

We attended an Engagement party in Forbes and along with many other guests we almost filled the Motel for 2 nights!! The beds were rock hard, the host was most unfriendly the second day we requested a couple more sachets of coffee as they hadn't refilled them from the previous day! He told us he had put 4 sachets in... More

Thank you for your review. I think you must have stayed in another motel. All our rooms are on one level. My wife and I clean and refill the rooms ourselves. The rooms are then checked afterwards to make sure everything is ok. I can assure you that our toilets are super clean. Our other reviews back this up. More

Stayed in September for one night while on a motorcycle trip with a mate. We stayed in a twin room which was clean and comfortable, although a little compact. The hotel is well located and only a short walk across the river into town. Location is quiet despite close proximity to the highway. Staff were friendly and helpful. Would stay... More

On holidays and travelling NSW, stayed in Forbes for 4 days. I found this motel very accommodating, from the very friendly and helpful owners to the super clean room I stayed in. The room was very comfortable and suited all my needs. The motel is only a short walk to eateries and supermarkets. I found the location on the lake... More

Pleasant place for a night. Close to river, very clean and friendly staff. Basic rooms but cleanliness is top notch . Proximity to the highway not a problem noise wise. Very comfy mattress too! There is a swimming pool for hot summers.
