Good value for the price!

Pros: The staff were very welcoming.
Cons: The pillows were too large and hard. The cold water tap turned warm after a short time.
Location: Conveniently located convenient to attractions of Forster. Next to Bowls Club and would suit bowlers.
I had much do do in Forster and merely slept at the motel.It was suited to my needs.

Older style rooms that are not soundproof.

Meals over cooked. Breakfast order 35 minutes late. Had to ask for room to be serviced. 1 & 1/2 star rating only

Disspointing

Cons: Service and maintanace
Location: Location was good
We arrived to a unhappy receptionist that really didn't want to be there. Our first room had a fan about to fall from the ceiling,the air conditioner didn't go below 26 degrees to cool the room so we moved into another room that was ok.We couldn't open the window to get fresh air as it was screwed shut.A coakroach then went under the bed

We are very sorry for your experience. The air conditioners take a while to work and this should of been explained to you I am sorry this was not done. We have a new receptionist that loves being there and we hope your next stay will be extreemly better.

Convenient motel suitable for our stay.

Pros: Neat and clean and convenient to everything in Forster.
Cons: Change the couch!
Location: Great beaches and lake not far away.
While the couch looked a bit tired the motel room was clean and well presented. Staff were helpful and went out of their way to do things for us.
