Reviewed 16 February 2013

Very clean, quiet and comfortable for an overnight stay. Refurbished well EXCEPT in bathroom. No area to put toiletries near the basin which was very annoying. Everything kept falling into the basin and getting wet. Unit felt quite pokey and closed in compared to other 4 star motels I regularly stay in. Staff polite. Quiet a/c. My husand stayed at another motel in Forster and thought it was much better than Lakesway. We would not stay again unless there was nothing else available. Close to shops and bowling club but too far away from the beach and lake for families. Would have to drive everywhere.

We had a spacious and quiet room that was very clean. I was pleasently surprised to have our room made up everyday, even on a couple of occasions when we slept late and got away closer to noon. It was great to come back and that had been done! It was also pretty quiet considering its proximity to busy roads etc.

The only negative were the number of smokers that sat outside their rooms smoking (not the fault of the owners, but the only reason we gave this 4/5 instead of 5/5), we woke early one morning as our room smelt like the smokers were in there with us. So my only suggestion would be to make the property non smoking or have a designated place away from the rooms so smoke can't get trapped and seep into rooms.

I have stayed at this motel twice recently and both times I found that the motel was very quiet and had very little noise coming from adjoining rooms. The rooms in the motel have been recently renovated and they are reasonably spacious and clean. I will stay there again should I be in the area.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms would be my preference.

we found this motel by chance staying in room 22 the spa room, it was super clean the spa baths were clean, they cleaned out the pipes ect, as me being a housekeeper i know what to look for.. there was nothing to fault and i mean nothing. we come back for our anniversary 3 mths later we stayed again in a spa room number 28, it was identical to the room before nothing to fault at all.
The people who own it run it, they are very nice polite and more than ready to help with information.
With the spa rooms costing $135 its a total bargin for what you pay for. 5 stars for everything.
if you want to get to the town center its a bit of a walk but the hotel is worth it.

Room Tip: if u want less noise dont get room 28 or 23 as they are next to the main stairs and are on the traff...

I stay in Forster for work occasionally and have tried a number of the motels there, but this one is by far the best of the lot. The operators are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are clean and tidy, they have a minibar and I enjoy the fact that I don't need to worry that everything is ship shape so I can concentrate on work.

Room Tip: The spa rooms are great!

Arrived in Forster on a Sunday and shocked to find most accommodation was booked(Bowls tournament) Tourist Office staff hepful sending us to inspect a few town centre motels which didn't really appeal then suggested Lakesway although it was out of town. They rang ahead, we drove down, inspected a room( room 20 being a disabled room offered more space as requested) and immediately accepted although it was tucked away in the corner which may put some people off. The restaurant was not operating but you could have room service. The room was large,clean and comfortable with two windows;the side window offering views of a garden. With plenty of parking and easy access into town the motel proved a good base although you did have to drive to the beach

Came up in February, and every room in town was booked out. We were able to walk in and get the last room in this hotel. Beautiful spa suite, lovely down to earth management, who helped us with setting up our cot with a very crabby, screaming baby after a long day's travel. Very kid friendly, chatted with the manager who has two small children of her own. Friendly and efficient cleaners. Lovely pool area. Was a bit apprehensive having read a few negative reviews as we came into town, but we had a great experience. Will definitely return as we travel to Forster regularly to visit family and friends. We have stayed in a lot of small hotels as we run a business and travel a lot, and this is the one we will return to when we are in Forster from now on
