Comfortable for a quick overnight stay. The rooms are a little dated and could do with a bit of tlc. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. Would stay again for an overnight stop. Staff were very friendly.

A clean, quiet, well-run motel. Short drive into the main Forster shopping centre, restaurant hub and beach. An easy stroll to supermarket. Affordable, easy to find, a great place to stop over. Staff friendly and helpful.

The staff are so lovely, the rooms are amazing, for what you pay, it's nowhere near cheap and nasty, but it's also not expensive to stay there. It has a huge bathroom for a motel room, bed was big and comfy, there was a back door with a garden, grass, and a seated undercover area, spacious room, with a great...

We stayed for one night with the kids traveling home, it was clean and everything works. The cash we saved staying somewhere budget we spent on dinner and breakfast. If you are staying for 2 weeks you probably want to throw a few more bucks at a fancier joint but for one or two nights it's fine.

Clean and comfortable room, couldn't hear any road noise even though it's on a busy road. Couldn't get the wi-fi to work. Sadly no microwave in room but is close to shops and pizza places if you're on a budget. Would stay again if passing through

Very impressed with the staff at this hotel. They all were polite and worked hard to impress. We turned up at 9am to speak to the receptionist about what we would have to do for late book in that afternoon. She told us not to worry and booked us into a room which had been empty the night before. It...

Convenient location on Lakes way, comfortable and clean, great for a stop over. Not far into town for supplies or to beaches and lookouts. Fast checkin. Nice looking rooms. Happy to find a 2 room option for a motel room to sleep the family comfortably. Not particularly good view out back but looks like works in progress. May need some...
