They say you get what you pay for and in this case it’s almost true. The basic budget rooms are very small with just the bed and a couple of chairs. But they have a generous bathroom and huge shower and are the cheapest and best located in Forster/Tuncurry. These budget rooms are quite acceptable for a single person/tradesman. Some rooms still have old standard definition LCD TVs that don’t receive the all the new HD channels nor are they compatible with movie videos on USB which is somewhat frustrating. However I found this old TV issue is not uncommon in budget motels. That’s the bad news. Now for the good news. The motel is very accessible from either direction. The rooms have excellent lighting options and have been recently renovated with new carpet and paint, new furniture and fittings and super comfy new beds. That’s very rare in budget motels anywhere most of which are somewhat run-down. And if you want a larger room with a sofa and table you can pay an extra $15 and get a much bigger twin room which is highly recommended for a couple staying more than two nights. The pool is nice and big and very clean and has an adjacent outdoor dining area with very good BBQ that is kept meticulously clean by the manager. They even provide a BBQ pack with everything you need. Just bring your own meat. Needless to say management is very helpful indeed. Just don’t ask for a discount. What more could you ask for with the cheapest motel in town?…
Very clean and nice place to stay. Owner Rod is a friendly and kind person. Small motel of quality. Good example of size does not matter. Keep up the excellent quality, service and cleanliness. We will come back.
Was very happy with my stay at this motel. The room was extremely clean and although small, it was comfortable and exactly what we needed. The room was also serviced/cleaned daily. The staff member that checked us in was extremely helpful and accommodating. I called on check-in day as I was arriving after hours and she coordinated for me to gain access to the room after hours which was a huge help. She was also very helpful with sightseeing suggestions and was happy to provide extra towels/milk when needed. Fantastic value for money. I will definitely stay here again in the future.
We needed simple o’night accommodation for a night and Bali Hi certainly fitted the requirement. The room and bathroom are very clean, recently updated and comfortable. With fresh milk a bonus and a very welcoming reception we recommend for short stays!
Friends and I stayed at the very neat, clean and well looked after Bali Hi Motel, Tuncurry, for 1 night recently. At $79 I found it to be exceptional value, and the owner very helpful . You even get a bottle of " real milk" on arrival.
