I found the apartment a little aged but overall was in a great location. A fine place to stay overnight if on a trip or on a cheap holiday. Very affordable! I was happy with our stay and wouldn't hesitate if we went back.

I read the terrible reviews as my husband booked us into this motel, our internet was a bit slow. So I was amazed when I walked into our room. Everything was spotlessly clean. The lady from reception was friendly and gave us a jug of fresh milk. Apart from the noisy air conditioner we were very happy with our stay....

We stayed here for one night..One too many. We walked into the room after dinner to find two cockroaches in the middle of the room. They were alive and we managed to kill both but what a terrible thing to see! I then wanted to check the bed and I found a spider in the bed. Alive too so I...

Room was disgusting. Bathroom not cleaned, previous guest towels still in the bathroom. Footprints in shower along with previous guests soap. Sink had soap in it also from previous guest. Bins hadn't been emptied, and we killed 2 spiders on the bed upon arrival. Avoid this place at all costs!!!!!!!

Well where do I start.. Welcomed by a rude man then entered our room and our breath was taken away by the stench of cigarette and musk smell. The room was absolutely disgusting, the lounge was that old and filthy I wouldn't let my dog sleep on it ! Turned the air conditioner on to notice the test and tag...

It's a no go zone dirty untidy to dear for what it is. I won't be back. The carpet on stairs and walk way I don't think have ever been cleaned. Aircon very noisy. Bugs on curtains . Hair dryer very old and rusty.

We stayed for 2 nights at Berkley Inn: due to late booking there was minimal accomodation available in Forster, however there was room at the Inn? Which is often a sign. Our review includes the following... * Central location, easy walking distance to beach / shops /cafes * Upon check in, no customer service & owner was looking incredibly bored...

Hard pillows ,dirty ,dated bed covers ! Didn't even supply milk for a cuppa, never again. For thisprice you would expect much better service and quality ,I have stayed in a lot of motels and I think this is by far the worst.

Greeted by a characterful but friendly lady, hotel seemed very quiet was nicely fitted out but slightly dated. Lack of wi fi except in the reception area was a pain. We hired SUP 's for 2 hrs and had a great time and the beach was also walking distance. Also had lovely meal at reef bar but needed to use...

I booked this motel the same day I was travelling up to Forster and when completing the online reservation form I mentioned that I will be arriving late that night, around midnight. As I drove I thought I would call the motel to double check that a key would be left for me because I would be arriving late, however...
