WOW, where do I start with this review, definitely value for money. When we stayed we had about 5 rooms booked as I had friends and family staying for my 50th Birthday Party.

At the last minute my son and his partner drove from Queensland and therefore, I had to book them very quickly into a motel. It wasn’t Golden Sands as they were booked out.

As they were treated extremely bad at this other motel, the lady at Golden Sands was so wonderful and she did have an empty room which had a loose tile in the bathroom that she hadn’t let out. She offered the room to my son and his pregnant partner and her two little sisters for the price of what was returned to them once they checked out of this other motel.

I can’t praise the Golden Sands more....rooms were very clean, comfortable beds and we will definitely be recommending them to anyone who is visiting Forster.

Stayed: April 2018, travelled with family

Booked in for one night but had to stay two. The lovely lady in reception upgraded to a larger room. It is an older style motel but comfortable. Very close to the main part of Forster and restaurants. Good parking and access. Would recommend if your looking for cheep but not nasty

Such a convenient spot, close to everything for us, very comfortable, receptionist friendly and told us a lot about the places for eating etc. would highly recommend - would specify when booking upstairs or downstairs - definitely value for money for sure.

Nice neat and tidy but room smelt musty. Friendly staff and local knowledge. But the morning we left we had no hot water for a shower. Looked like there were a heap of workers staying there and we missed out. Great location but previous let it down.

Hi,
We have continuous gas hot water so there is no way to miss out?? Perhaps the 1950s reverse side taps may have tricked you?
As for a musty smell I really would love for you to let us know what room you stayed in so I can investigate this. Likewise in the future please consider letting staff know at the time so they have an opportunity to help. We have a 24 hour number for our guests to contact. We wish we had known at the time as we want our guests to have a great stay every time, so would have jumped at the opportunity to assist.
Regardless we are very sorry to read you didn't enjoy your stay & we wish you all the best

We had a three bedroom apartment. Decor is dated but it was clean, comfortable and great value for money. Have stayed here twice and would definitely stay again. Very helpful staff. Within walking distance to everything.
