Booked into this quality Motel giving 24 hrs notice. Arrived late due to traffic and Managers were very pleasant and Professional. Allocated upstairs room (13) Very Clean, well presented and great bed. The cleanest bathroon I have ever been in. Spent 2 nights here and could not fault the room nor the managers nor the Motel. Well Done.

Motel was quite OK although the hot water was less than brilliant. None in the evening when we arrived but improved the next morning. Room was large enough with a kitchenette and quite OK. Very clean. Quite a drive to the town centre but not really an issue unless you want to walk. Staff were very accommodating. I could recommend...

Stayed here for 1 night whilst in Forster for work. Nice clean hotel, rooms are set back from the road so noise wasn't an issue. They upgraded me to a spa room which was very large. I would stay here again when next in Forster.

The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. You could not swing a cat in the bathroom...I kept hitting myself on the shower frame in the bathroom. There was no water pressure . The service was friendly though.

Popped in overnight for a stop while travelling. Typical sized motel room with a small kitchenette area, good sized bathroom and a comfortable bed. Loved that they offered me a small bottle of real milk on check-in for my tea and coffee, not one of those mini milk tubs you normally get. Was a bit scared there was no hot...

We stayed in a family room for 3 nights arriving on New Year's Day. The room was mostly clean (some dust on the TV eg). There was some sewage smell in the bathroom but it was quickly dealt with. The beds were mostly comfortable (the single one was soft). The kitchenette was well equipped. The pool was fun to relax....

Thankyou for your feedback. We work hard to keep our guests happy Unfortunately over the Christmas period with so many visitors to Forster it does effect the speed and connection to wifi. also happy to hear that your problems were solved quickly Thankyou for your stay . We hope to see you again in the New Year .

Great service from the ladies who run the reception. Big clean rooms. Quiet. Little bit pricey but this was peak time so you cannot expect a bargain at Christmas . I can only recommend them as a great place to stay.

Nice little motel with everything you need for a good nights sleep. Shower was hot (it did take quite a while for the hot water to flow) the beds are comfortable and the rooms are set back far enough from the road so you dont hear any traffic noise. A little bit out of town but not an inconvenience.
