“Good break”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

Just spent a few days in Forster over the Easter weekend. Stayed at Forster Palms Motel and enjoyed our stay. Found room to be clean and comfortable. Staff were friendly and helpful. Will definitely be staying here on our next visit to this area.

It's not very clean. We got out of there as fast as we could. Not all that central and didn't feel safe or secure. Foster it's self is beautiful though. Heaps for kids to do and the water is beautiful. Not a lot of clean well priced overnight stays there though.

Felt like I had stepped into a Hot Tub Time Machine and gone back to the 80's. Decor very tired. Dramatically over priced. Ants and cockroaches scaled the walls around us, and our room had a balcony with a lovely view of a smelly drain - was almost as bad as sewage. Left with a crick in my neck from the pancake pillow.

Room Tip: Ask for a room not on the bowling club side - there's a drain behind it that smells!

Average room with a lumpy bed and a strange smell with no complimentery team, and im a man who likes his motel tea.
I was not keen to eat here but the thai restaurant down the road is pretty good.
The woman at the front counter was lovely tho.

Stayed June 2013, travelled on business

Do not stay here! The manager is rude and greedy! He's needs some management/hospitality/English training! This was the last available room in Forster so we had no other option than to stay here, as my father in law was in hospital over Xmas/New Year! The room was hideous, the pool was filthy, the beds were so bloody uncomfortable! Cockroaches in the rooms! We stayed 6 nights and the price of the room increased dramatically on NYE! The place is a rip off!

Average room, average location. Overall OK. Windows would not close properly, causing smoke from outside to enter. Overall OK if you just want somewhere to lay your head. Price was a bit high for what you get.

I enjoyed yet another great stay at the Forster Palms Motel these September school holidays. The weather was so perfect and my accommodation did not disappoint either. The pool was fantastic and the beach is within a reasonable walking distance which is great coming into summer. The staff were friendly and helpful as always!
