Neat and clean rooms, well priced and located close to shopping. Quiet location with my room well sized for single occupancy and well suited for an overnight stay or longer. The room was well appointed and comfortable.

Stayed here several times now. Staff are friendly, always greeted with a smile. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Breakfasts always on time and worth the money. Walking distance to shopping centre, short drive to Forster/Tuncurry and local beaches.

Enjoyed a good nights rest at the Island Palms Motor inn. Room was clean, comfortable and reasonably priced including the free wifi. Quiet location although on main road into Forster from south. Handy to shopping centre. Would stay again if in the area.
