Property is basic, but for the price we paid, it was as expected. It was clean and the staff were helpful and friendly. Good location very close to the beach and shops.

The property is in a perfect location. It is a 2 minute walk from the property to the ocean (Main Beach) on one side, Lake Wallis on the other side and downtown Forster with all of the shops and cafes. The staff are very friendly and helpful. It's also a short walk to the bridge to Tuncurry.

Thanks for the feedback. If you are referring to the marks on the shower screen they can't be removed as its on the inside of the glass.
