The property is a little way out of town, but within easy driving distance. There are plenty of dining options within 5 - 10 minute drive, and supermarkets & shopping centres are nearby. It was quiet and very clean and comfortable and the room was nicely furnished with what we needed. The price was very competitive for an overnight stay in Forster. We were pleased by our choice and would recommend.

Check in is digital, you just use the touch screen outside reception. I'm not sure there is a manager on-site at all. Rooms are nice size and clean, the mattress was a bit firm for my liking, but that's all I can pick on for the price.
