Friendly staff willing to accommodate your needs. For business travelers if you need desk space for laptops etc ask to book the rooms near the pool as I was told by the managers they contained conventional seating otherwise the standard rooms offer bar stool seating only. Apart from that good spot.

Travelling through and pulled in here at last minute (7:30pm). Guy at front counter was super friendly and happy to point us in direction of food. Room is basic but great value for price, nice and clean and very comfortable!

Fantastic motel, beautifully kept gardens, nice pool and comfy air-conditioned rooms, good free wifi. Lovely owners and they also do in-room meals, perfect if you've been driving and don't feel like going out. Really nice spot right on the lake, great for a morning walk, a kayak or just sitting in the afternoon watching the turtles and pelicans. Location is... More

Just stayed overnight. So my requirements were simple. Lake Forbes Motel tIcks the boxes. Welcoming reception, a very clean room and comfortable bed. Close to town, so an easy walk for dinner or breakfast. Nice bonus - plenty of TV channels and good water pressure,

The owners were very friendly and helpful, the room was a good size, had been renovated and it was very clean, dinner was a home cooked meal, it was delivered to my room and was nice and hot. The room had a toaster, microwave, plates, cutlery and cups and a reverse cycle air conditioner. Even though it was on the... More

The external appearance of a non brick motel right beside the main Melbourne - Brisbane highway needs to be completely ignored with the Lake Forbes Motel. This is a very comfy country motel where all the usual features of beds, air con, internet, showers etc all get a tick. Night time traffic is quiet as there are no hills to... More

This is a bargain at Forbes, conveniently situated on Lake Forbes, just off the Newell Highway. It is within walking distance to the CBD. Very friendly couple who looked after the small motel complex. The room was clean, spacious, and neat. The shower was great. Free wifi available in the rooms. There is a small swimming pool, just next to... More

It's an old motel that has been refurbished very well and the rooms are small but very comfortable. Spotlessly clean with a comfortable bed. It's slightly out of town but as the town is small, that is not a problem Nearby is a motor museum that we found fascinating (we didn't expect to!) and worth a few hours to be... More

The hosts were friendly. The bed was comfortable and the room clean and well equipped. It was good to be able to go straight outside and enjoy walking near the lake. All in all, it was a solid option for an overnight stay while on a long road trip.
