My son and I shared a room. The managers were charming, but the guests at the time were rough. Our neighbours were serious drinkers and heavy smokers, and their party was raucous and smokey! The room was clean and the beds comfortable, but the beds were not made in the morning - we stayed two nights. Our only complaint about...

I traveled up to Forster from Sydney in February 2016 for a holiday with a few mates. This place wasn't 5 star, but it had everything that you need on a budget: Bed. Shower. Bath. Car Parking. They also gave me a car spot to park my boat for the night. This Motel is 2 minutes walk from the main...

We visited Forster and after visiting the Information Centre we went to this motel and found the lady manager to be very pleasant and helpful. The location of this motel is very close to all the town facilities and was very suitable for our 2 nights stay. The motel is not really modern but our room had a small kitchenette...

Motel was great for overnight while travelling. Receptionist welcoming & friendly, room clean, roomy & comfortable. Toaster, microwave, refrigerator & crockery provided if you want to supply your own breakfast. Good sized shower but has a curtain around it which can be annoying. They have a pool, which we didn't use, however there were people using it. Overall a good...

Maybe not the modernist motel in Forster but everything you need. Clean and comfortable, nice pool. No minimum stay. Within easy walking distance to shops, restaurants and beach. We did not use the car for three days. Most important the owners were probably the most obliging and friendly couple we have ever experienced and remember this was peak time.

At $115 per night it is great value in Forster. You can walk to any of the town restaurants, beach, lake etc. Probably the pick of the motels unless you pay nearly double for a hi-rise apartment. Room was medium size, clean, good beds and includes a kitchenette, thus easier if getting take away meals etc. Split system air cond...

Comfy motel, a little aged but clean. My shower pressure was divine, my colleague's in the next room was not. If you enjoy food, it seems to be one of "the" places to go. Service + food were excellent!
