Had a great time in Forster, especially because theGolden Sands was so great. Perfectly located between beach and promenade, both a stones throw away. Small but immaculate swimming pool, done its job well. Reasonably priced considering the location . Very comfortable n safe .

The Golden Sands Motor Inn at Forster is a great value motel in a great location. Close walk to the shopping centre. The motel is looking a bit tired, but our room was clean and the bed was comfortable. I wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again the next time I’m visiting Forster.
