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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This place was perfect for a one night stopover in Forbes. Short walk to town for restaurants, clubs, pubs and shopping. Room at the back with lake views so very quiet and comfortable. Lovely balcony with 2 chairs. Everything you need for a short stay. Room was very spacious with toiletries etc.

We were staying in Forbes to visit the Elvis Festival in nearby Parkes. Check in was fine. As soon as we walked in I noticed that the single bed had been slept in. The queen bed had fresh sheets, but the single bed sheets had not been changed and the bed had not even been made. It was dirty with food stains on the sheets. Luckily my daughter didn’t join us on this trip. The queen bed comforter had white stains on the underside of it. The mattress was hard and plastic, like sleeping on a jumping castle. The bathroom had multiple dead bugs on the floor and had a lot of mould in the shower. I’m not surprised as there was no fan in the bathroom so it was a sauna in there every time you took a shower. The toilet seat was very yellowed from age and the toilet brush was just thrown on the floor. The hairdryer had an inch of dust and grime on it. The sofa was covered in stains - I didn’t even attempt to go near it let alone touch it. Due to the festival, everywhere else was booked out so we had no choice but to stay as we had driven 5 hours to get there. We were charged $190 per night, even though their website states $150. When I told the man at reception about the room on the Friday, he said he would let the cleaners know. When we checked out on Sunday morning nothing had been done. Luckily I brought antibacterial spray and wipes, along with my own pillow. I definitely left it cleaner than it was when we arrived. Not where near worth the price we paid to stay there, and will definitely never stay there again.

This place is disgusting. There was blood stains on the pillows, god knows who what white stains on the blankets, hair in the shower and blood on the toilet. We left after an hour. Unable to get refund as there was no one at reception. Wasn’t worth the wait just wanted to get out of there!!

The Inn is located on Sherriff Street which doubles as the Newell Highway. There was plenty of free parking at the front of the Inn plus an undercover parking area. Stayed one night in a large room that faced the back of the Inn. Our room was furnished with a queen sized bed (comfortable) with small bedside open cabinets on each side of the bed as well as wall mounted reading lights. There was also two single armchairs, a desk with a chair, a small square dining table with two chairs, wall mounted flat screen TV, minibar, microwave, electric kettle, iron and ironing board and an open hanging area. The bathroom was also large with plenty of space for toiletries on the vanity and a walk-in shower with a rainwater shower head. Unfortunately the shower pressure was poor. There was a small balcony with two chairs but no table. WIFI was included and worked OK. Overall the room was clean although the bathroom was showing its age. The only other negative was that our room had an interconnecting door with the room next door and our neighbours were obviously deaf as they continued to have the TV on full volume until late in the night. The Inn is in a good location and within a 10 minute walk to the shops, hotels, cafes and restaurants. Staff at check-in were pleasant. Did not see them when we checked out.

The rooms are large, clean and comfortable with the added bonus of being able to open doors onto the balcony and have fresh air in the room. There is plenty of parking undercover parking which is a bonus in the heat of summer. The quieter rooms are those that face away from the highway at the front and onto the lake. Location is central and allows you to walk to any number of food venues. Would recommend the Forbes Inn for any meal

We needed an overnight stopover and the Victoria Inn did a great job. Very helpful staff on check in and under the hotel parking, the room was clean and well appointed in addition to a comfortable bed. All at a very reasonable price. There was also, a short walk away, several venue choices for dinner.

We had the "deluxe" room . It was spacious and was at the back of the motel with a small river view. It was a long way to ferry our luggage to our room. It was a 1 minute walk to the park/lake area which was a pleasure to walk around.

Motel staff very unhelpful. We had no hot water and when we told motel staff they just shrugged us off!! Told us we were obviously having showers when other guests were having showers! Like are you serious?? Do we have to knock on the doors of other gusts to check if they are in the shower? Considering we showered at different times each day!! What a joke. We stayed for three nights and asked for our money back so we could stay somewhere warm but were refused. Lazy male staff member would not even get up off his chair or look us in the eye, firstly said he was calling the plumber, then the electrician. Then said that he wasn’t doing anything!! Middle of winter at sub zero temperatures. We wouldn’t have stayed unless we had too. Room was not clean. Each day the beds were just pulled up. Towels were sat on the toilet seat! ...How disgusting is that! Lucky we had our own towels incase of rain. Cutlery was not clean, benches sticky. The foldout lounge had some kind of cover which was covered in hair. Very hard to get to rooms, up the metal staircases. We stayed away from our room as much as we could, despite being freezing cold at an outdoor sporting event. I would not recommend this motel to anyone!! Mostly due to the very unpleasant male staff member who was so unbelievably unpleasant and lazy.

Stayed for three nights with no hot water. Informed Manager first day all too hard didn’t care. Excuse was everyone showering at same time. What a load of crap one would think that a decent motel would be able to supply enough hot water for every room. Showered in friends room rest of the stay with plenty of hot water informed manager still didn’t understand. Room service what a joke blankets pulled up towels placed on toilet seat. Cheap cover in lounge covered in food and hair. Would not recommend.
