Island Palms Motor Inn
Ranked #1 of 9 Hotels in Forster
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 October 2012

We spent 3 nights while in Forster for a wedding, the room was nice and clean, the bed very comfortable and the staff really friendly. It was good having the shopping across the road for the basics and 30 mins up the road we found an amazing beach called boomerang beach, well worth taking the time to go there for a swim.

my husband and i stay one night for a wedding , the rooms are very lge but need TLC .
shops are just across the road , but if u need to forster main street u will have to drive, even going to the club , u can catch a bus or taxi. as this motel is out of town .
it just an Average motel .. if u want to stay closer to town u can get motel for $90.00 which is what we pay here..

Room Tip: try the spa room as it seem to be a bit nicer ..

Spent just one night ,but from when I walked in to check in, the experience was refreshing,no hassle check in of the highest order. Then to the room and for the price we paid was the best value for money I have ever seen. The Motel is very close (walking distance) from the large shopping center for all the stuff you left at home. Not too far from clubs and Hotel, it was winter when we visited so a swim in the pool was out of the question. All in all a great stay.

Stayed here for one night on a stopover as the rooms were cheaply priced over the long weekend. Rooms were ok, basic but clean with a comfy bed however Motel definitely needs updating. Check in at reception was quite basic, the guy was not very interested and struggled to make conversation! Would probably stay again if we didnt have much money!

Thanks for the review! Your feedback is very welcome. The "guy" at reception was me and I usually don't shut up.

Stayed at the Island Palms for 2 nights in March 2012. Just across the road from a shopping centre where all your requirements were available.
The staff were most welcoming and helpful, and the rooms were clean and comfy.
I would definately recommend the Island Palms.

Room Tip: No need, all the rooms are set well back from the road for a nice and peaceful stay.

I am sorry to heard about your time with us. Your stay with us does not exemplify us, so I would hope you could give us another chance in the future to stay with us again so we can meet or exceed the expectation you would have had with us on your initial stay.

I can guarantee you that are rooms are always cleaned to the highest possible standard, we pride ourselves on the cleanliness of your rooms. Rooms are also cleaned daily unless you display the do not disturb signage on your door or request that your room is not to be cleaned.

Never would we place a guest into room that have any maintenance requirements no matter how big or small.

Again sorry to hear about your stay.

Kind Regards
Billy & Emily

We stayed for 5 nights and had a great time. We liked it so much that we extended for another night. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Good BBQ and pool area. Great for kids. Rooms were clean and a good size. Close to town. Would stay there again.
