We would not hesitate... More

Loved the friendly and welcoming feel that the Motels new owners shared with us. The room was fantastic, spacious and very comfortable. The location is beautiful and if we had had the time we would have taken advantage of the walk that surrounds the lake. The room booked ended up being upstairs. However I was pleased that the new owners... More

The motel is getting a bit old. That's ok I guess but this also means the sound proofing is not very good. You also get noise from the wooden walkways. Family rooms are advertised as Queen bed but are actually doubles. Not great if you are over 6 feet tall, like me. Traffic noise is terrible. Big trucks roar past... More

My husband and I stayed at the Lake Forbes Motel on 20/10/2014 when we were desperate to find accommodation that actually offered evening meals. The motel is small but quiet and the bed was so comfortable, right down to the pillows!. The room was spotless - I am pretty fussy when it comes to cleanliness and I could not fault... More

What a wonderful week at this motel. The manager/owner and his wife did more for my husband I on a recent trip to Forbes than what I expected. Every day there was clean towels and the room left fresh and clean. We had an extra car and trailer and that was accommodated as well. The clothes were wash and back... More

Stayed here overnight and the rooms are moderately furnished. With a good size TV and wifi the rooms do have so e little creature comforts. Beds were very comfortable as well. Definitely happy to recommend

Plenty of blankets. Shower has good pressure with lots of hot water. In a lovely area with view of park/lake. CONS - Take your earplugs, traffic is close, loud and constant.... More

On the up note; we arrived in late, with no booking at 9.30pm and Lake Forbes Motel was the only one left open, the others had closed for the night at 9pm so it is difficult to gripe about the convenience of being actually let in after a long day. However, on the actual experience and the room I have... More

My wife served you and we were just about to close up. We had the last room left in Forbes because of a cancellation. The room is family room and can sleep 4 people. The rate of $135 is on of the cheapest rates in Forbes. You were very rude and abrupt with my wife when you first arrived and... More

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!
