Our simple but well-equipped room was very convenient for Questacon and other sites of interest. Although we checked out a couple of restaurant complexes quite close by (Kingston and Barton), once evening came on we found it even more convenient simply to return to the Hotel restaurant, which had a modest but very satisfactory menu of nourishing meals. We found...

Very noisy motel style accommodation. Not hotel or apartment style as advertised. It is Clean although tired with friendly staff but needs major sound proofing. Reasonable cost. Good for maybe an overnight stay only.

Great location and affordable. Apartments had cooking and washing facilities which was great. Apartments looking a bit tiresome and in need of a revamp. Lacking basic things - family of five need five plates, five bowls etc.

The standard of the room was high and the pleasant way I was treated by the staff really made my stay enjoyable. Nothing was too much trouble and .....if you want a very clean room- this is the place. The breakfast choices were great. I would definitely stay there again.

Stayed there in April, an apartment out the back of the carpark. Noise from the adjacent apartment was relentless. Had booked three buffet breakfasts, the hotel claimed they had no record of it - oldest trick in the book. The staff were unapologetic, unhelpful and inflexible, made out that we must have made a mistake or have been lying. Aside...

Having great accommodation just made our holiday that much more fantastic. We can't wait to visit other Forrest Hotels in other locations. Your staff were so helpful and very friendly. We were so busy we didn't have the chance to try room service or your buffet but definitely next time. Thank you for a great stay

Everything from making the reservation until we checked out was friendly and efficient. We had been upgraded to an apartment which was very comfortable if a little dated. Bed was super comfortable, clean crisp sheets and excellent towels. Kitchen facilities appeared excellent although we did not use them. Staff were excellent and how good it was to be greeted by...

Receptionist rude and impatient at check in which set a very poor tone for the stay. Older blonde woman rushed through directions so I had to ask her to explain and she seemed a bit exasperated that I wanted clarity as to where I was driving in order to get to the apartments.
