Karri Forest Motel Pemberton

I don't know how anyone could recommend this motel! It is advertised as 4 Star, would not even qualify as 2 Star. Linen had been slept on, restaurant was closed and pool was brown. We unfortunately booked and paid upfront through a website. He refused us a refund and did not offer alternative accommodation. The owner was rude and unprofessional.

Perhaps you could post a review too, to assist others. Your post will disappear very quickly but reviews are there forever...

He we go again...

There are obviously issues in Pemeberton and as such i would trust few reviews and even fewer forum posts unless the OP or reviewer had a credible history for significant time prior..

TA reviews are all over the shop on this one...even the 1 post wonders vary with their reviews. I haven't stayed there but I can certainly recommend the on-site restaurant... "Silver Birch Restaurant". A wonderful dining experience!

AJ if you go back some time there were numerous suspect reviews and threads..the one I linked was one of the few not reviewed...it wasn't just one place that was affected,

there was an all out one poster war between a few of the accom places, within48 hours one place would get 10 reviews swinging from disgusting to amazing and then a review/post on the forums to make everyone look..

silly dopes invented ids that were prominent WA celebs/sportspeople at the time..eg Ryan Bayley (sprint champ) and a cricketer..sorry can't remember which one.

The silly attitude did more to harm Pemberton Tourism than help as no one suggested staying in pemberton for quite some time because they weren't sure what was going on

Quite agree, GW, I was so put off by the one-review wonders giving vent about places in Pemberton town that I opted to stay in a more sensibly-reviewed B&B out of town. Which served just as well, as it was 5 mins drive to dinner, or to the tourist info centre, or to the Gloucester Tree. And served as the perfect base for two days' touring around Pemberton. On Eatability I take a similar view - if they're a one-post wonder, ignore them :-)

Over 2 years since I stayed there and I still regularly exchange emails with Jim & Jackie.

...but I stray off topic

...but who cares anyway :)
