Forster Palms Motel
Ranked #7 of 9 Hotels in Forster
Reviewed January 19, 2014

Felt like I had stepped into a Hot Tub Time Machine and gone back to the 80's. Decor very tired. Dramatically over priced. Ants and cockroaches scaled the walls around us, and our room had a balcony with a lovely view of a smelly drain - was almost as bad as sewage. Left with a crick in my neck from the pancake pillow.

Room Tip: Ask for a room not on the bowling club side - there's a drain behind it that smells!

Average room with a lumpy bed and a strange smell with no complimentery team, and im a man who likes his motel tea.
I was not keen to eat here but the thai restaurant down the road is pretty good.
The woman at the front counter was lovely tho.

Do not stay here! The manager is rude and greedy! He's needs some management/hospitality/English training! This was the last available room in Forster so we had no other option than to stay here, as my father in law was in hospital over Xmas/New Year! The room was hideous, the pool was filthy, the beds were so bloody uncomfortable! Cockroaches in the rooms! We stayed 6 nights and the price of the room increased dramatically on NYE! The place is a rip off!

Average room, average location. Overall OK. Windows would not close properly, causing smoke from outside to enter. Overall OK if you just want somewhere to lay your head. Price was a bit high for what you get.

I enjoyed yet another great stay at the Forster Palms Motel these September school holidays. The weather was so perfect and my accommodation did not disappoint either. The pool was fantastic and the beach is within a reasonable walking distance which is great coming into summer. The staff were friendly and helpful as always!

Stayed for one night end September 2013. The room was quiet enough during night hours, but at 7.00 a.m. the kids were already screaming around in the courtyard (absolutely avoid the NSW school holidays if you want peace). The room looked extremely tired and the beds were so soft that my back hurt for a number of days afterwards. I did not imagine that motels still have beds like these, I haven't seen any that bad since the early 1980's!!! All in all, a terrible experience and, at A$128 a night, much too expensive for what you get.
