Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Astina Suites is in the heart of Forster, modern, spacious and comfortable. We were in Suite 7, Level 2, it’s a two bedroom apartment with two lounge areas. The main lounge is spacious with a large tv with Netflix and Foxtel. The sofa in the main lounge is quite low where you sink into it and is not usable for anyone needing back support. There’s a good size balcony overlooking busy Beach Street. The other lounge area next to the kitchen has a sofa bed and its own tv.

The main bedroom has a king size bed, with an on-suite and its own aircon. The second bedroom has two single beds. The single beds are quite narrow, so you need to be small and skinny to fit comfortably. This room has its own little balcony, although it was not much of a view.

The bathrooms are nice and clean with a huge shower head and good water pressure.

The kitchen has modern appliances and is pretty good. However, I would advise that all crockery and cutlery be washed first before using. We found lipstick marks on the glasses, dried food on plates, smudges on forks/spoons. There was not enough washing detergent for proper cleaning of the utensils and crockery, and only two dish washing tablets. There were also chipped glasses and plates.

Another negative is the traffic noise. In the main bedroom on weekdays, from 5.30am onwards, any sleep is lost to non-stop trucks and cars driving along Beach Street. And this is non peak season in Forster. It is surprising that there’s been no acoustic treatment to the building seeing it’s situated on a busy road.

Overall, it’s a very nice apartment and we enjoyed the stay.

A gorgeous, modern apartment with heaps of space and inclusions. The central location means beaches, shops and restaurants are all within a few minutes walk. Be aware, the underground car park is very tight, especially if you drive a larger car.

Perfect apartment. Very clean, great beds, Nespresso machine, laundry, beach towels and near great coffee shops. We had a view to the beach across the roads and although it was a bit noisy sitting on the deck being beside a main road, it was still a good place to have an evening BBQ. There was even salt and pepper and aluminium foil in the drawer. At night there are light-blocking blinds which were good for sleeping. The place had air con and ceiling fans and I loved being able to use one of the throw rugs instead of the duvets on the bed.
The bathrooms were large and would have been suitable for anyone with a walker as there were no hobs or steps to worry about.
We loved being able to walk to the lake or the beach and our favourite restaurants.
We would all go back again.

We are an extended family of 4 adult males and one mother.
I need room and a I need an en-suite, this apartment had it all. Comfy beds, cosy lounges - although at 60 they are a little hard to get out of. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you’d need for a beach break.lots of crockery and cutlery to eat that delicious seafood you catch or buy at Lobby’s.
There are beach towels to take to the beach and plenty of bath towels for guests. We had an apartment with the extra sitting room which was converted into a bedroom with a sofa bed.a sliding door would have been a nice touch just for some privacy
,
A lovely box of goodies was waiting on our arrival. A very nice touch.
The only downside to the stay was the lack of internet. we had access on day one but lost reception and had no internet for the days after. I did report it to the Professionals but they didn’t seem to interested in resolving the issue. I also sent an email to the Astina contact but I had no reply.
We survived but it would,have been nice to have regular reliable reception particularly at the time of year. New Years but also because of the bush fires in our region and keeping in touch with relatives.
All In all a lovely ,spacious apartment for a relaxing peaceful time with family,

Absolutely stunning apartment in a perfect location in beautiful Forster.
The apartment is clean, modern, spacious, well appointed and very stylish.
It’s in a cracker location, the beach is a stones throw away, the river the same in the opposite direction and restaurants and shops around the corner. You truly couldn’t ask for more.

Amazing fit out, spacious and extremely well appointed. Some of the best apartments in Forster. Location is perfect. You can essentially park the car on arrival and never have to touch it again! Will definitely stay again.

We had never been to Forster and selected Astina based on other reviews and the location.

We were beyond happy with every aspect.

The units are modern and beautifully decorated. They are extremely spacious and the kitchen and bathroom were so clean they felt brand new. The room has Foxtel on the main TV and Netflix on all other TVs.

Bedrooms had great sized beds and TV in the master was a nice touch.

The unit block itself is relatively small, adding to the sense of privacy and exclusivity. It is located in central Forster, with a range of Cafes, restaurants and banks basically downstairs. Supermarkets are a short 5min drive.

Whilst the rooms all had underground parking, it is a little tight so can be tricky to park.

All in all, magnificent accommodation and we have already booked our next trip.

👍My husband and I stayed here recently midweek.
We found the suite very spacious,appointed nicely and very clean(except for a few stains on carpet in the main bedroom)
Bed was comfy and king size and you had two bathrooms to choose from,all very modern.I think the building is only a few years old.
Full size kitchen,nice balcony with BBQ
Situated in town,very close to eateries and the beach.
Good views towards the beach.. our suite was on level 3 number 8.
👎However there were a few downsides.
Astina is situated on Forsters main road that becomes very busy and noisy during the day.Closing the doors did shut out the noise.The good thing was that the bedrooms were on the side of the building and traffic noise did die down of a night time so sleeping was ok.
Lounge chairs were not very comfy...I call them the bean bag style that you sink into and have no support.Not great for older people.
Undercover parking was a bit tight so with a large vehicle you may have some issues.
Having said all that I still think it wasn’t too bad a place to stay.

Agree with previous reviews, one of the best holiday apartments we have stayed in. Tastefully designed with attention to detail for comfort considered. The beds are the most comfortable pillow top (A.H Beard) top, everybody slept soundly. The bath inside the shower stall was awesome and deep, and the kitchen had everything you need for a great stay. The dining table was big enough for some great lunches with both families.
The TV is great in both the lounge and bedroom, and we had complimentary Foxtel and Netflix! The lounges are great to lie on, like a spare bed.
The proximity to the beach, river and shops was perfect, and the local cafes offered plenty of options. Will stay there again. Very happy

The apartment is exceptional! The location is perfect, so close to the beach, cafes, restaurants, shopping and some amazing walks. It has private parking with a lift, a fully equipped kitchen, two bathrooms and a European style laundry. The wrap around balcony provides views of the beach and glimpses of the river! Management was amazing and so responsive, Karen even organised bathroom aids for my elderly mother. We will definitely be back to Astina Suites Forster xo
