We were in Forster for a wedding when the floods came and we couldn't get home...The management and/or lady on reception was fantastic... nothing was too much trouble for her....even holding our room in case we had to turn around and come back...costing her a room for the night as we did make it home. Rooms are clean and comfortable... location is perfect right in the centre of town.... I would 100% recommend anyone looking for somewhere to stay in Forster check this one out as you won't be disappointed

We stayed at Golden Sands for 2 nights, it is a great location to the beach and restaurants at an affordable price. Just 1 street away from the beach. Easy walk to the shops and back streets. Will definitely stay there again.

This is an older style motel but it has been thoughtfully renovated. Rooms have a microwave, crockery and cutlery and outside tables so you can have a meal in your room. There is a rear lane with direct access into the township and beaches of Forster. We parked the car when we arrived and didn't get into it again until it was time to leave. Although you are only 2 minutes walk from town, the motel is still very quiet. There is a nice atmosphere and we met several guests who told us that if they couldn't get into this particular motel, they didn't bother visiting Forster.
