We were welcomed by the friendly owner at the moment we stepped in the office. Our room was large and comfortable with a very clean bathroom and good bed. The location of the motel was by the river and the main road but despite being concerned about traffic noise, we heard nothing all night. The owners were happy to help...

It is quite a while since we stayed in a Motel, you can't ask for a better location. You are given a very friendly welcome which is always a good start. The Motor Museum is very close to the Motel and no husband who likes anything to ho with Cars and Motor bikes really enjoyed our time there. After checking...

Enjoyed a great night's sleep, assisted by the motel owners, who kindly warmed the room ready for our Winter evening arrival. Stayed in a deluxe room overlooking pretty Lake Forbes. The room had everything we needed, and a lovely hot shower in the morning was welcomed. The verandah, off the room, facing the lake is a relaxing scenic option for...

The motel was good, the reception lady was very nice and helpful. The rooms are a little bit small but fitted with everything you could need: kettle, toaster, towels, soap, coffee, tea, etc. We had a good stay.

Manager was lovely. Rooms are a little dated but that didn't matter because everything was spotless, everything worked and it was comfortable. It's on the main road but I didn't even notice the traffic noise. Short walk to main street.

Everything you expect a motel to have is there! Clean room, clean bathroom and toilet, little kitchenette, TV etc. ... and on top of that a very friendly manager! The only thing that could be an issue for some travelers is the constant noise from trucks going along the Newell Hwy! Anyway, if I'd come past here another time in...

Stayed 1 night, room was small but cosy & clean. Manager very friendly & helpful. It was a little pricey at $110 for what it was but glad to pay it after our last stay at a different motel in Forbes that was dreadful. Lake Forbes Motel has a lovely homely feeling big verandah & a quaint cottagey look to...

Checked in to this motel & as far as rooms go..they're good..but I found that the beds and pillows were a bit too hard for my liking..but its better than the caravan park as u head to the Victorian border. The owners were very helpful and friendly..of which is a welcome change after driving long distances.
