The Dorsal Boutique Hotel, Forster

The Dorsal Boutique Hotel

The Dorsal Boutique Hotel is the newest hotel to be constructed in the beautiful surroundings of Forster Tuncurry in the Great Lakes Region.

This modern complex located directly opposite Forster Main Beach is ideal for holiday accommodation and boasts balconies and beach views from every room, making everyone’s stay here an equally enjoyable experience.

To simply say that The Dorsal offers a high standard of accommodation is an understatement, suffice to say that your stay here will be well spent. All of the 29 stunningly designed rooms enjoy ocean and lake views (yes, all of them), a flat-screen LCD television, internet connection facilities, minibar, air-conditioning, filtered drinking water, ice machine, tea/coffee making facilities, in room safe and ensuite bathrooms (some have spa baths).

You can also experience watching the sunrise over the Pacific Ocean, one of natures beautiful displays only improved by the fantastic position above Forster Main Beach that The Dorsal offers.

My husband & I have really enjoyed our stay here. Fantastic location opposite the beach with a ocean rock pool. So close to shops cafes & restaurants.
Friendly staff, with a Italian restaurant attached.
We will come back. 😁

My wife and I stayed there at the beginning of December 2017, one of the top floor rooms. Beside boutique in their name and a boutique room rates there’s nothing boutique about this hotel – sorry should say motel! One of the worst places I’ve ever stayed. Extremely outdated, dirty and unwelcoming place! I could go on and on about it but I will just share one experience that sums it up : watch out: cockroaches! We killed four of them within 48h of our stay, photo of one of them attached. Obviously if they have them in the top floor rooms then they are throughout the whole building! I emailed Dorsal asking for a partial refund as I found over half a thousand dollars ($520) for two nights with cockroaches quite overpriced, here’s what they have replied (quoting):

“Good afternoon
Thank you for your email advising of the presence of cockroaches in your room during your stay at The Dorsal. The property is of course treated for such pests, however unfortunately sometimes they still manage to find their way in. We are unable to offer you a partial refund however we are happy to provide you with a complimentary Gift Voucher for a Superior room for your use at a time that suits you within the next six months, subject to availability and not between 15th Dec 2017 and 28th January 2018.
We apologise for this incident and if you would like to make use of the Gift Voucher offer kindly contact our reception who will organise this to be sent t you.
Kind Regards”

I found their reply very inappropriate as I certainly wouldn’t want to bring my wife back to a ‘hotel’ filled with cockroaches!

I love Foster, love going on holiday there, but man this place is a disgrace! If you’re planing on staying there better bring a Mortein spray with you!

P.S. we just recently stayed at the Big4 Holiday Park across the bridge in Tuncurry. Their rooms and facilities are way better quality and standards than Dorsal!

Good luck Dorsal!

Way, way overpriced for the standard of the room. No amenities. We had a very average receptionist – it felt like we were disrupting her by checking in!

Great views and lovely location but this is not a boutique hotel. Lacked personality. Bathrooms are dated, smallest vanity ever – no room to put anything. Shower is very small and the hot/cold tap was backwards!!!
Nice place but it’s not boutique or luxury.
The restaurant downstairs was great and the hotel is in a great location!
