We stayed a night here and this pleasant little motel exceeded all our expectations. Our room was meticulously presented, freshly renovated, very well equipped with microwave, large TV, and small but essential items like iron and board. The front desk very friendly and helpful, what was supposed to be a quick sleep stopover became a very enjoyable stay. We'll definitely... More

This motel is budget priced for a reason so do not expect anything else. The property is very well presented and extremely clean which I believe is No.1 priority when travelling. Tea & coffee making facilities, microwave, toaster, bar fridge shampoo & conditioner are nice touches. They offer items for you to have a bbq which is gr8. Breakfast was... More

The Great Lakes district of NSW is one of the state's top tourism areas, and families regularly make a beeline for Forster/Tuncurry for their annual holidays. As such you would expect accommodation to be at a premium and pricy to boot. The Bali Hi Motel in Tuncurry turns this truism on its head offering good, budget price accommodation cheaper than...

The room was tiny but very clean, it was recently painted. The staff was friendly and helpful. Great location. We just stop for a night on our way to Port Macquarie. We had dinner at the Bowling Club, food was excellent. I highly recommended for a short stay.

We spent one night at the Bali Hi on a Saturday night. Bathroom doesn't have enough towel hanging space, floor ends up very wet after showering. But if you're looking for clean and nothing too flash, this place will do. Certainly cheaper than other places in Forster/Tuncurry area. Did have a cockroach that shared the room as well though.

Fabulous motel! Immaculately clean, friendly, private and a great price. The grounds are decorated like Bali which adds to the relaxed beach atmosphere of tuncurry! Easy to check in and out, no hassle! But the star was Izzy the dog, a real character oozing charisma! A real little lady! Miss her already.
