We stayed here for 2 nights as part of our Gulflander & Savannahlander Tour package. Given the size, history of the town to find an establishment of this quality was very welcome. Our coach driver explained that the property had closed, was taken over and was now owned by the operators of Cobbold Gorge. After our trip out there it is easy to see their attention to quality and detail applied here. We stayed in unit 6 around back and these are very comfortable, clean, good size - great aircon. Within our group there we those staying in the caravan park and other types of accommodation and all reported the quality and standard as very good. The hotel bar and food area is outstanding and very while new it certainly fits in with the surrounding buildings. We had dinner and breakfast (2 each) and the food selection and quality was very good. Great well stocked bar and given all this it is easy to see why so many choose to stay here. Location is excellent right across the road from the station and Forsayth itself is quite central to the regional attractions

Room Tip: all are good but rooms behind the main hotel are very good and all are quiet.

Forsayth is a very pretty little town with so much history. The pub also includes petrol station, post office and shop as well as camping sites and cabins. The cost of the cabin was a little high at $133 per night but clean and modern. The young lady who looked after us worked very long hours but was so friendly and helpful. She ran from morning to night. The pub did all the meals and served lunch and dinner. My reason for 4 stars is that when I looked online it said the pub did breakfast so although we had taken food, we hadn't taken cooking facilities. There was no breakfast or any means of cooking it. And there is nowhere else in town to buy breakfast. To be be fair, we were offered a toaster but decided as we were going to Einasleigh, ( they had advertised as serving breakfast) we would eat there. Unfortunately that was incorrect as the pub didn't open till 11am. However, all that aside, it's a lovely place, the staff at the pub were terrific and the fault was ours for not being better prepared and throw in a camp stove. We'll know for next time. But I do wonder how other visitor fare if they don't have a caravan, just a car.

We stayed at the Goldfields Hotel for one night on the way to Cobbold Gorge. We really could not fault this place The room was large; clean & had an enormous ensuite. There were plenty of rooms & I think the hotel had recently been refurbished. The restaurant was filled to capacity with plenty of food for everyone. They seem to have certain foods on certain evenings & we were there on a Friday with fish & chips on the menu! Friendly staff.

We stayed at Finnigan’s rest on the basis of taking their Savannah lander train tour. This departs on Thursdays at 12.15. We had travelled from Cobbold Gorge early and settled into our room prior to departure.The bus took us to Einasleigh where we visited the historic hotel before boarding the motor rain train to return to Forsayth. The drivers gave a great commentary and the tight curves along the way caused squealing of the wheels. A trip well enjoyed and like train worth trying.
