The entrance to the complex is not easy to find, but once you do it is like a tropical haven close to the city. The daily dawn chorus is amazing, and birds love the gardens. The staff are friendly and helpful, the apartment basic but fully equipped, and the beds really comfy. It was a superb base from which to... More

It was a 5 star experience from the time I booked until I checked out. Lee and Vivian were so helpful and I sent some of the spices in advance and they were kind enough to receive them and stored it in our apt prior to arrival. I asked for lower level unit and that was allocated as well. Location... More

My husband stayed here 5 years ago and it wasn't a pleasant experience. There is new management now so we decided to give it a second chance. We're glad we did. We stayed for two nights on the 5th and 6th of August. The room was small and compact however it was clean. There is a full kitchen with a... More

As long as you don't expect luxury, this will suit.All the basics are there; split cycle air con was welcome on a cold night & there was ample hot water for a shower. Conveniently located near the city, the trees & bird life were a pleasant surprise in the middle of suburbia

I stayed at the hotel for 3 days while visiting a friend. I chose the location because the price was really tempting. The whole experience was quite comfortable. A big shopping centre is nearby. Parking was easy. The neighborhood was fine and quiet. I could hardly hear any traffic at night. The room was clean and tidy. Many kitchen stuff... More

We needed somewhere to stay to attend an event in the area, and this was about the only place with a vacancy. It was clean, basic and acceptable. I have stayed in a similar place and for the budget conscious it is suitable. No where is cheap if needing to stay in city/suburban areas of any big city. We did... More

My young son and I stayed here for 5 nights as new arrivals to Australia and had one of the most bizarre experiences this experienced traveller has ever encountered. You would have to be desperate to stay here, which we were... And boy did we pay a price. The manager was volatile and argumentative when I complained about the wifi,... More

our family utilised six of the apartments at Forest Lodge to attend a family wedding. The apartments were basic but exceptionally clean and looked as though they had been freshly painted throughout as well. The beds were comfortable with fresh crisp linen and beautiful soft white towels. There was plenty of crockery, glasses and cutlery for our use . As... More

This facility was exactly what we had hoped for. Check in was fast and effortless. Our unit (#20) had 2 bedrooms, living room, bathroom, kitchen and dining table. We had lots of space and plenty of storage. Our stay was for 8 nights so we hit the supermarket right away (very convenient-just around the corner) to stock the cupboards and... More
