Manager was lovely. Rooms are a little dated but that didn't matter because everything was spotless, everything worked and it was comfortable. It's on the main road but I didn't even notice the traffic noise. Short walk to main street.

Everything you expect a motel to have is there! Clean room, clean bathroom and toilet, little kitchenette, TV etc. ... and on top of that a very friendly manager! The only thing that could be an issue for some travelers is the constant noise from trucks going along the Newell Hwy! Anyway, if I'd come past here another time in... More

It was a little pricey at $110 for what it was but glad to pay it after our last stay at a different motel in Forbes that was dreadful.

Checked in to this motel & as far as rooms go..they're good..but I found that the beds and pillows were a bit too hard for my liking..but its better than the caravan park as u head to the Victorian border. The owners were very helpful and friendly..of which is a welcome change after driving long distances.

After a long day of travelling it was lovely to be greeted by a friendly face. What the motel lacks in modern cons it replaces with good old country cleanliness and service. Rooms modest but spotless - Bathrooms appear to have been retiled recently. Tea and coffee for the weary traveller and a comfortable bed. I don't think I could... More

I booked 3 double rooms here for one night. What a great spot, rooms small but comfortable. Beautiful salt water pool, surrounding parklands and just a short stroll over the bridge to the Forbes Bowls Club for the evening meal.

Friendly staff willing to accommodate your needs. For business travelers if you need desk space for laptops etc ask to book the rooms near the pool as I was told by the managers they contained conventional seating otherwise the standard rooms offer bar stool seating only. Apart from that good spot.

Fantastic motel, beautifully kept gardens, nice pool and comfy air-conditioned rooms, good free wifi. Lovely owners and they also do in-room meals, perfect if you've been driving and don't feel like going out. Really nice spot right on the lake, great for a morning walk, a kayak or just sitting in the afternoon watching the turtles and pelicans. Location is... More
