We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night stay at the Island Palms. Our room was very comfy and really quiet. I had no problem having an afternoon snooze while hubby took our girls for a swim in the motel pool.

Friendly & professional service. Room was user friendly, clean & tidy. However I'm not sure it has ever been refurbished. It looks to be original circa 1980's. When booking check the circus is NOT in town. It was literally right next door when we stayed during January school holidays & they're not exactly quiet!

Very clean & comfortable with wonderful friendly staff. Rooms are a good size & the motel is very handy to the shops. The attached restaurant is a bonus & both the food & staff were excellent. Good value & would highly recommend for either a short or long stay.

This motel was quite lovely and had great amenities. Reasonably clean and comfortable. In Room 8 the single beds were separated from the queen by the bathroom making each feel like a little room. We had a lovely stay.

For a budget motel, this one was pretty good. Fairly modernised, fresh coloured paint, bathroom quite spacious with toilet leg room, very clean. Large modern TV with good reception, fresh white towels and quality toiletries and biscuits, etc. Lots of natural light and full length sliding doors. Very impressive check-in reception - again, spacious and very clean with many brochures...

Island Palms at Forster was very good value, clean comfortable with parking directly outside the room and a restaurant available on site.. I would definitely recommend it for short...
