Myself and 2 friends recently stayed at the Wilsons Promontory Motel in Foster for 2 nights over the Easter holidays whilst visiting Wilsons Promontory National Park a short drive away (around 25 mins to the park entrance).
I must say I wasn't expecting too much as the rates were very reasonable considering it was Easter and to sleep 3, but we were all extremely happy with the size, facilities and cleanliness of the room straight away! The bathroom, although fairly basic was very clean with plenty of room and good water pressure in the shower and the hot water never ran out which surprised us! We had 1 large king size bed and 1 queen size which was perfect for our stay. There were also lots of spare blankets/pillows which was usefull. Tea/coffee facilites were provided along with a decent size fridge and microwave which were both very useful. Being of a motel design there were also little table and chairs outside each room which is very handy for any smokers or to just get some sunshine or fresh air in the evening. There is also ample parking so you can park your vehicle right outside your door which is handy.
The location to the town couldn't have been more perfect! Literally a stones throw from the local pub and just at the end of the highstreet which had lots of good coffee shops, a chemist, doctors, souvenier shops etc. The pub food was great and the portions were massive. The motel also had a reasonably priced bar and although I didn't eat breakfast there I was told it was great and excellent value for money.
Finally the owners of the motel really made it for me. The guy (I presume owner) who checked us in/out and dealt with a variety of queries from us was extremely helpfull and friendly throughout and another lady who I believe to be the co-owner was very friendly and chatty.
Overall, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Wilsons Promontory Motel in Foster to anybody! We had a great stay and couldn't have been happier!
