Stayed here with our small pet dog. Very good rooms with plenty of room for a small pet or two. Well appointed, comfortable rooms within easy walking distance to pubs, clubs and shops as well as some of the tourist attractions.

So, a motel is a motel.....the main difference between an average stay and a good one is: 1- the service.... Outstanding 2- the location.... Middle of town 3- cleanliness... Spotless Good spot, nice people, clean and comfortable.

A standard room but the bed was comfortable and we slept well. Luckily it wasn't too hot as the air conditioner was very noisy. Easy access to the town centre and the RSL for meals. The lake is right behind this hotel and it's a lovely place for a relaxing walk.

We stayed here for a week while participating in the Forbes Mega Farm Rescue. It's centrally located and we were able to walk to everything in town. Staff were pleasant and friendly and the room was very clean and comfortable.

We enjoyed your company and a BIG thank you for participating in the Forbes Mega Farm Rescue. Your help (with a team of around 180 volunteers) and consideration to the farming community has had an enormous impact to those who are struggling with the drought conditions. Just the knowledge that others care gives them strength to carry on into the next season and hopefully better rainfall for crops and livestock. It is only two years ago that floods wiped out most of the crops and left the land unusable for 18 months. May blessings follow you. Kindest regards, Steve & Marilyn.

My room had a reasonably comfortable queen bed, room was your standard older country motel size, very clean, good size bathroom and shower had good pressure. The motel is straight across the road from a large club and bakery and only 2-3 minutes walk from a couple of pubs.
