“Old-school, but great, with a view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

This was a great surprise. The building itself is quite old, but has recently been refurbished (inside). Bathroom is excellent; kitchen has all you need; very comfortable. The highlight is the view from the balcony, where we ate breakfast, dinner, and just sat. Personal care from the owner. Highly recommended.

Stayed February 2013, traveled as a couple

We own a B&B ourselves and wanted a one night getaway for a rest. We booked Forsters Bay Lodge without knowing anything about it other than it was a motel and was close to the Wagonga Inlet at Narooma and just across the road from restaurants and the wharf.

We were delighted to find a beautifully clean room with kitchen facilities, a bathroom with decent towls and a comfortable bed. There was everything we needed including air-con a TV (a little small for the room) and wonderful views of the Wagonga Inlet. We parked right outside the room which was very convenient as we were travelling with our Aunt who finds it difficult to ret about comfortably. We might add that there are only six rooms in the motel and therefore we did not experience any noise from ohter guests.

We had lunch across the road and came back the next morning for breakfast. Together with a tour of Narooma we can say that we really enjoyed our getaway and will definitely return for another one next year. All in all, a great experience and a great place to stay.

Glancing at this 6 room motel would not conjour up the word "Bouique" but surprises come in unusual packages. Recently renovated, crisp sheets, fluffy white towels, spotless and personable attention to detail ticked all the boxes for us. Add to that the million dollar view that draws the eye as you enter your room and a sunset drink on your balcony overlooking the Wagonga Inlet and you will be more than suprised at how reasonable the rates are at Forsters Bay Lodge. Narooma has it all....ocean beaches and lake tranquility, fishing, golfing, meandering boardwalks and the perfect starting point to explore the Sapphire coast. A wide selection of restaurants are within walking distance from this Motel or you can use the self catering facilities in your room or the BBQ in the well tended gardens of the property. Highly reccommended.

Room Tip: All rooms enjoy the stunning lake view
