Keys will be available for collection from the safes located outside at Jasmine Motel 18 Wallis Street Forster. Safe number and access code will be provided on your day of arrival. Should an early check in be available our team will let you know on the day . Please make sure you have completed your Online Guest Check-in.
Check in is from 14:00 pm and 16:00 pm during December, January and Peak times on the day of your arrival. We strive to have all properties ready for this time, however, due to circumstances mostly out of our control this can not always be guaranteed – we thank you for your patience and understanding in advance. Should an early check in be available our team will notify you on the day of your arrival.
Bonds, a bond applies to all of our properties. Bonds are processed prior to your arrival and processed as an Authorization hold (also card authorization, preauthorization, or preauth) This renders the bond amount as unavailable, however the funds never leave your account. Provided no claim against your bond is required the authorization holds fall off the account, thus rendering the balance available again. The time for this to occur varies, depending on the bank’s policy and depending on the issuing bank. This will not show up as a deposit on your statement but will instead be directly added to your available balance automatically due to it only being a “temporary charge”.
Pets are STRICTLY NOT allowed at our properties under any circumstance. If you do bring an unauthorised pet into the property you will be evicted and forfeit the right to any refund. If you do need to bring your furry friend, we do have a range of pet-friendly properties available. For these properties, we ask that your pet remains outside and that you leave no trace behind. Excess cleaning or damages will be charged against your security bond. Where can I walk my dog? Please check the Great Lakes Council Website for the most current information.
