Heading up to taree for work and spent the night here. The owners are so kind and thought of everything! Could not believe how clean, tidy and airy the rooms were. Air was fresh and clean and I had the best nights sleep! Thank you

I unexpectedly had to stop in Foster for the night. We arrived frazzled and upset. We were greeted with such warmth and understanding. I can not express my gratitude enough. Generous clean rooms. Quiet location, very handy to shopping centre.

Wow. Stopped in here for a night stay. The new management is fantastic (rick) So glad we chose Best Western. We will definitely be back! Bed was very comfortable - home away from home. a favorite for the whole family.

Recently under new management eager to learn and please their visitors. Rooms are large, clean and tidy, beds are so comfy and the hotel is in a quiet location. We only stopped for a night but I would have stayed longer if we weren't just travelling through.

There is a lot to like about this Hotel - quite, clean, comfortable, and an absolutely huge spa. The only issue, was the extremely loud family in the adjacent room that highlighted how thin the walls are.

Stayed here a couple of times recently. Simply furnished room with a very comfortable bed.Room also has a microwave , breakfasts are good and they do offer a limited menu for dinner - there are plenty of restaurants a short drive away in Forster or Tuncurry. Staff are friendly.

We arrived to Best Western after a long drive looking forward to our 3 night stay in our executive spa room only to be informed sorry we do not have your booking. I was confused as the booking was made 3 months ago and money had been taken out of my account for our room yet now they dont have any record of my booking. At first i was informed that they were sorry but there was no room for us they were fully booked and we could not stay there. The lady behind the counter was filling in for management as they were on holidays and she was upset that this has happened as we were not the first ones that night to have a booking lost. If it was not for my partner we would not have been given a room there but somehow one was provided. The hotel itself is ok basic and clean however i will never stay here again.

This place never fails to impress. We stay in room 28 and have for a few yrs now. The place is flawless, clean everything. Very well maintained rooms gardens and property. I love it. Highly recommended

Arrived Thursday 9/3/17 pm & went to book in only to find our booking had vanished, was quite disappointed as we booked Dec 16 & deposit of $148 had been taken from my account! Was told by receptionist that we were the 7th group this had happened to ON THE SANE DAY! I was furious, after driving 4 hours to be turned away? Not happening! The issue was way out of the duty mngr's control so I told her to ring the owner/ mngr, either/or & resolve the issue to which she did & the owner had to put another lady, who was due in later that night, out of a room to compensate for us.... Very concerning!!! 3 night 4 days stay was pleasant, it was just the initial discrepancy that could've been messy... Moving forward.... Always ring & confirm accomodation is accurate a week prior trip!!! Unnecessary stress!! Very unorganised bookwork! We were 1/7 that the same mix up happened to! Not good for business ppl!! Get your crap together!

We stayed there 2 nights in the executive suite with a big corner spa. Room was spacious and comfortable, and clean with free wifi. Nice spacious shower and bathroom and within minutes of main shopping centre and local shops. Staff were friendly and got into our room early.
