Thanks for the hospitality. The room was clean and quiet. It was nice to be out of town near the river and park. Love what you have down to make the pool area so inviting. Good luck with the business.

Hotel was very clean and tidy. Rooms were dated but comfortable. Good air con on such a hot day. The pool was not heated but didn't need to be. Location was great, just off the main rd but no noise from it.

Spent the night on the return trip from Gold Coast to Adelaide, the owners are very friendly and helpful in pointing out dining/eateries nearby. The rooms are very small, but contain everything you need. I stayed at the Adrian Motel my last time through and my stay in town was by far 1000 times better this time around, I did...

Partner stayed here on the first leg of a drive from Melbourne to Townsville. Pretty location overlooking a park and Lake Forbes. Friendly service. Rooms were fairly small but were clean and comfortable, highway noise was negligible. The room service bangers and mash was very tasty and about what you'd expect for $18! The pool is very small. However it...

We were welcomed by the friendly owner at the moment we stepped in the office. Our room was large and comfortable with a very clean bathroom and good bed. The location of the motel was by the river and the main road but despite being concerned about traffic noise, we heard nothing all night. The owners were happy to help...

It is quite a while since we stayed in a Motel, you can't ask for a better location. You are given a very friendly welcome which is always a good start. The Motor Museum is very close to the Motel and no husband who likes anything to ho with Cars and Motor bikes really enjoyed our time there. After checking...

Enjoyed a great night's sleep, assisted by the motel owners, who kindly warmed the room ready for our Winter evening arrival. Stayed in a deluxe room overlooking pretty Lake Forbes. The room had everything we needed, and a lovely hot shower in the morning was welcomed. The verandah, off the room, facing the lake is a relaxing scenic option for...

The motel was good, the reception lady was very nice and helpful. The rooms are a little bit small but fitted with everything you could need: kettle, toaster, towels, soap, coffee, tea, etc. We had a good stay.

We recently spent 20 days on the road travelling from Rosebud in Victoria to Palm Cove in Queensland and stayed at many Motels. One of the very BEST is the LAKES FORBES MOTEL. Located in a great setting of parkland beside the Lake. Lynne and Mark were the perfect hosts.Lynne's Motels Song ,to be found on the website,sums up their...

Manager was lovely. Rooms are a little dated but that didn't matter because everything was spotless, everything worked and it was comfortable. It's on the main road but I didn't even notice the traffic noise. Short walk to main street.
