Comfy motel, a little aged but clean. My shower pressure was divine, my colleague's in the next room was not. If you enjoy food, it seems to be one of "the" places to go. Service + food were excellent!

Rooms are a bit old school but great value. Very spacious. Felt really safe as a lone traveller. Host was lovely. BEST shower pressure. Will definitely be back. Love that this motel is pet friendly too.

As usual, the hosts of the Forster Motor Inn are the most welcoming of hosts one could ask for. Always happy for us to return. Very accepting of our dog also. The rooms are very clean and tidy. No smells or odours. Everything in working order. In the very heart of Forster. Excellent for accessing restaurants and beaches. Very good...

We could not recommend this place highly enough. We were welcomed with a warm smile and the staff were very helpful. Although an ageing property (reflected in the great value room rates), the room and bathroom were SPOTLESS. Not a spec of dust, dirt or mould to be seen. Even the extractor fan in the bathroom looked like it had...

This hotel is perfect for short stays. I stayed here for one night to catch a few zzzz's after a long day driving. This hotel was perfect for what I wanted, clean, well looked after, and right in the heart of town. I'll be back.

Forster Motor Inn is extremely clean and the staff are very friendly and welcoming. It does however need an update. The room was very generous in size. It is in a great location and within walking distance to everything. It is value for money. Even though this is a pet friendly motel there wasn't any evidence of dog odour.

Nice and clean room's. Staff were very nice and helpful with any inquiries we had about best places to visit and where to go to eat. Didn't need car within walking distance to beach and lake and nice park for kids on the lakes. Will be staying again on my next trip.

Overnight stay on my bi monthly trip up the coast to Coffs. Not new but very clean and staff were friendly and helpful. No view or anything but real close to center of town and and the river side. I go for ground floor units was not a problem. Will stay there whenever I can.
