Room was disgusting. Bathroom not cleaned, previous guest towels still in the bathroom. Footprints in shower along with previous guests soap. Sink had soap in it also from previous guest. Bins hadn't been emptied, and we killed 2 spiders on the bed upon arrival. Avoid this place at all costs!!!!!!!

The room was absolutely disgusting, the lounge was that old and filthy I wouldn't let my dog sleep on it ! Turned the air conditioner on to notice the test and tag...

We stayed for 2 nights at Berkley Inn: due to late booking there was minimal accomodation available in Forster, however there was room at the Inn? Which is often a sign. Our review includes the following... * Central location, easy walking distance to beach / shops /cafes * Upon check in, no customer service & owner was looking incredibly bored...

Hard pillows ,dirty ,dated bed covers ! Didn't even supply milk for a cuppa, never again. For thisprice you would expect much better service and quality ,I have stayed in a lot of motels and I think this is by far the worst.

Greeted by a characterful but friendly lady, hotel seemed very quiet was nicely fitted out but slightly dated. Lack of wi fi except in the reception area was a pain. We hired SUP 's for 2 hrs and had a great time and the beach was also walking distance. Also had lovely meal at reef bar but needed to use...

I booked this motel the same day I was travelling up to Forster and when completing the online reservation form I mentioned that I will be arriving late that night, around midnight. As I drove I thought I would call the motel to double check that a key would be left for me because I would be arriving late, however...

When we arrived to the hotel (2 hours early), we were greeted by a lovely lady at reception. She had just started her shift and she said she wasn't 100% certain if our room was ready or not. She provided us with directions to get to where we wanted to go. After we shared some laughs, we headed on our...

We only wanted a convenient overnighter for a long interstate drive. It was in a good location only two blocks walk to main dining area and a relaxing walk along river. Block next door was vacant so lot of traffic noise from main road to our first floor room, albeit not overly intrusive. Reception was very friendly. Room was clean...
