Very good property - clean & comfortable.

Excellent customer service from William (on site manager?). Ordered dinner and it arrived quickly; meal basic but filling.

Good value when booked via the BW web site.

All I can say for the Customer Service in this place is wow!
The gentleman that served us at the check in desk was extremely polite and very warm.
He showed us the best beaches to go to and great places for site seeing.
The room itself was impressive for a Best Western, it smelt fresh and it was very spacious. We had the "honeymoon suite" and the spa was enormous.
Given the location I would say that $175 could be reasonable and it was a Saturday night, however they could lower it a bit.
There would only be one thing that I could think of that was "bad" was that the t.v was very small.
Overall it was a great place to stay and I will certainly go there again.

Room Tip: This place is great if you want to be close to everything - beach, lake, shopping.

Executive Spa Suite - We had a pleasant stay. What I liked about this room is that it is at the far corner of the Motor Inn and obviously being Valentines weekend we didn't want to be disturbed and we didn't want to be heard or disturb anyone else :) Our room was not fancy but it did have all that we needed. The spa was nice and big and I'm sure I spent more time in the spa than in the arms of my boyfriend lol. What was good about our room was that we did order breakfast but because I am a big advocate of sleeping in on holidays they had a small window/compartment that was able to be opened by staff and they quietly slipped it in through the small window and left without waking us up. However, I'm not sure whether it was an oversight by staff or whether you have to be specific and write that you would like toast with your breakfast but my boyfriend ticked the option of eggs, bacon and tomatoes and when the breakfast came it only came with the mentioned and no toast. So maybe double check if you need to specifically request it because I was too tired to bother with it. Overall on hotel ratings i think it would stand at a 3 but I've given it a rating of 4 because I was pleasantly surprised :) and yes I would stay here again.

Having planned 4 days off during the 'low' season in Feb 2014, we read reviews about all the available accommodation in Forster and decided upon the best western honeymoon suite.
Extremely well priced, good location off the main road- but extremely quiet, 10 mins walk to stocklands mall and 50mins walk to the main beach and main street or a 4min drive.
The motel manager William provided 5 star service, extremely knowledgeable of activities and great must see places in the surrounding areas.
A wonderful stay, room very clean, serviced every morning and very romantic. Small outdoor pool with slide very clean as well and nice half sized tennis court, with equipment available from office- according to a sign, however we bought our own gear and had an amazing stay.
We will be returning in June as we loved our time there.

Room Tip: paying a tiny bit extra for the spa rooms, either executive or honeymoon, well worth it!

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2014

We were very disappointed with this motel. Most of the reviews raved about it so we had expected something really nice. Dagman 71's review perhaps sums it up accurately, though this seems to be a lone voice. Yes, the Manager was very nice and seemed to be very helpful. Yes it was clean. It is on a main road, and it seems to be in the middle of no-where, you have to drive a distance to get around. The room was a good size and it was generous with a small kitchen at the end which was well appointed. The bathroom was tiny, you had to shuffle around in it if your partner was there too, and there was no-where to store most of your toiletries except the floor. The bed linen was very crumpled and the furniture was old and had been painted - chipped in spots. Mattress so so. Small flat screen TV. The only view was to the west looking out over the carpark and the main road - on a hot day had to keep the blinds drawn and it was depressing. Air conditioning and ceiling fan were good. We didn't eat here so can't comment on the food except that the menu was pretty basic. All up, this motel was OK, it is 3 star, it is what it is.
