I booked the Forresters as an affordable family friendly place to stay at overnight while doing my scuba diving course in Terrigal. We were very pleased - the room was lovely and clean, the pool and spa were fantastic and great for our child. The only problem was that when I booked, I was not informed that the hotel restaurant...

Me and My husband stayed here over the Australia Day long weekend and we loved it. This place is nice and clean. And the local beaches were great, we had Forresters Beach just behind then The Entrance and Terrigal. Upon reaching the resort the staff were very cheerful and welcoming which just what you need to make your stay pleasant.... More

Rooms were clean, but a upgrade wouldn't go astray. Stayed here on a university field trip 15years ago and nothing has changed. Mattresses need upgrading...so soft when lying in bed I felt the blood rushing to my head. Friends in other rooms had the same experience (and we had not been drinking!). Front desk service was friendly enough, until we... More

Claire, I find this review extremely disappointing as we have been upgrading for the past 3 yrs. Your room has new solid front door, TV, fridge, bedspread, microwave and appliances, and yes, new queen bed less than 3yrs old. King Koil Suparest MK2 (med.).w latex layer for support, pillowtop for comfort. We have so many compliments on our beds and... More

Stayed one night for business trip. Got a good deal on wotif. The room was very clean and the bed comfy. A criteria for all motels that unfortunately is lacking in many. So a big plus there. Yes, the motel definitely has an eighties feel but looked well maintained. Updating would be great but with the size of motel I... More

Your can read all the other reviews of this "resort" and get the general picture. It is: 1. tired and needs renovation (still living in the 1980's motel genre); 2. expensive for what it provides; 3. remote - a drive to The Entrance and Terrigal; 4. noisy - it is on the Central Coast Highway; etc. etc. My wife &...

We have queen exec and king exec rms and spa rooms to offer also. One lane north and one south, doesn't constitute a highway and has no... More

A group of meeting and event planners visited the property for a fully hosted tour and lunch and was greatly surprised by the amazing Conference Centre and meeting Facilities. The location on the Scenic Hwy at Forresters Beach is a little remote but perfect for a conference group, parking for hundreds plus coaches in a secure car park. THe Conference... More

Lovely, large clean rooms! Yes slightly out dates but everything was clean and lovely and for the price and location who expects super modern? Lovely pool area. Staff were very accommodating and i love the gorgeous gold lab at reception! Not close to much in walking distance but a short drive to most areas of interest!

My daughter, baby grandson and I had a few days recently visiting family in Bateau Bay. We initially booked a motel in Bateau Bay and when checking in were horrified at the condition of the room. We advised the owner we could not stay in such poor conditions with a baby and received a refund. After a few desperate calls... More
