We stayed at the Lake Forbes late 2014 and elected to stay again. We were very pleased we did. The room was spotlessly clean and I think the new owners/managers have made some changes to the décor. The evening menu has been changed and is more comprehensive than it was. I had the rolled pork and my husband had the... More

Pleasant room without being outstanding. Receptionist was very welcoming and helpful. Located near the highway so there was some noise from the traffic. Best part of the stay was the lovely walk alongside the lake next door. Well worth the stroll.

Two seniors with adult daughter relocating daughter from Melbourne back to Noosa, we were delighted to find such a nice motel. The motel has been updated and beautifully so. The beds were very comfortable with high quality linen. The bathroom was modern and immaculate, with quality grooming products The supply of kitchen necessities was very good. 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

PROS - Excellent evening meal (chicken korma and rice) generous portion, piping hot, delivered to room and extremely tasty. Managers/owners very friendly and helpful. Rooms very clean and tidy. 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
