I always used to stay at the Golden Sands Motor Inn. The last time was disappointing in that they no longer serve breakfast. They do have a toaster and microwave in the room. The rooms are average. clean and comfortable.

After a long drive we picked this motel at random. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. Given fresh milk for our coffee which was a nice touch. Room with a balcony was just what we needed , clean and comfortable. Best nights sleep so far after 2 weeks of travelling. Fish and chips on the balcony with a glass of...

This hotel is in a great location close to the beach for a very reasonable price. The room itself felt a bit damp, and it wasn't the cleanest place we've slept this trip, however for the little time we spent in there it didn't matter too much. The reception lady was very friendly and helpful and the shower was really...

This was comfortable accommodation well situated with easy access to shops, cafes and the beach. The decor was a bit dated but otherwise adequate for a short stopover. We appreciated the air conditioning as it was an exceptionally hot weekend in Foster. There was a small pool but the ocean sea pool was only a short walk away.

We enjoyed our stay here. The rooms are a bit old fashioned but you get what you pay for! Everything was clean. Friendly reception. The beach and Wharf street are only a block or so walk away. There are also some nice parks close by.

Our check in was friendly and fast. Location is excellent with the beach just around the corner, lots of shops, cafes and restaurants all close by. the rooms are clean beds are comfortable. While some of the facilities are old they work and are in reasonable condition. My only gripe would be a lack of power points and slow WiFi....

We stayed overnight at the Golden Sands Motor Inn. The rooms were very tidy and the beds were very comfortable. Veronica the receptionist was very polite, helpful and engaging. The price of the unit was quite reasonable and very handy to the town centre.

Your classic basic Aussie motel- cheap as chips. Car parked right at my door, walk to the beach, the iconic bridge and the best of Forster 'main street' shops and restaurants. Fresh milk on arrival (I love that, can't stand uht milk) and with a bushfire crisis and the town all booked up, they made up a room for me....
