Forrest Beach Hotel & Caravan Park
Reviewed August 5, 2013

will never go back after a night of no sleep. The Motel must consider some form of sound proofing for the hollow block walls. The people in the room next door had their tv on ALL night and everytime they went to the bathroom it seemed they were in our room. They went out for a loud chat and cigarette every hour ( 1am,2am,3am ). Our room was very standard, no insect screens, a fridge that was noisy and rather appalling décor with moth eaten drapes and sheets that looked unwashed. Not even a washcloth was supplied. There was nothing in the room to advise on who to contact if there was a problem after hours. We could not leave the door open to the seaview, as cigarette smoke filled the room if open. These people also had a very young baby and they took it outside everytime it cried from 8pm to 4am which disturbed everyone in the block. There were no safety/fire notices in the room either which was astounding.
The adjourning hotel is great for smokers. They have a huge area outside and the smoke can be smelt everywhere so non-smokers beware. The pub lunch was good value ( crumbed chicken ) but I had to return dinner as duck was so overcooked it was chewy & the next attempt was slightly better. The Asian salad consisted of rice with sickly sweet pineapple & bitter bean sprouts. Will definitely give this place a miss on our future list of places to stay.
I have paid less to stay at a decent Novotel chain.

We had 3 days accom. at Townsville decided to go for a drive and ended up at Forrest Beach Hotel loved it so much we didn't go back to Townsville for our pre-paid, only to catch the plane back home. The room was large with great views to Palm Island, the food was great and cheap. Would love to go back and try the Van Park which is part of the Hotel grounds.

Room Tip: They are all just as good as each other
