Having travelled extensively in Aust and overseas have not stayed any where like it. Upon entry to house met with extremely dirty carpet and musty smell, room just adequate with double bed with dirty bed cover and pillowcases, fortunately had a towel in car so slept on that, bathroom reasonable only because it had new vanity installed, the place was...

Firstly, our rooms have queen size beds. The bathroom is as was built, no renovations have been made to the bathroom. Our beds are changed as each guest leaves. The fire alarms don't have batteries in them as clients who smoke in the rooms take them out. There is a back up fire alarm called a running man and even...

Clean and modern B & B house with privacy and ample amenities. Great rooms. The spa was highlight in the winter retreat, friendly proprietors. Even the nearby construction work did not detract from our good time.

Absolutely stunning! You would not believe it! Dust and smoky smell everywhere, smoke detector disabled, towels and linen not cleaned, incredibly bad breakfast. This place is a danger by all standards and should not be advertised anywhere. How come that in 2015 such a place can exist. There is no one inspecting places like this???

We decided last minute to have a night near the beach and as most places were booked out decided to try this. We made a booking on Wotif. While the room itself was reasonably neat and tidy,(however no air con. and very close to other rooms and the aged shared kitchen), the entrance was littered with rubbish, dead plants and...

The front was a real shock.. Broken chairs, dead pot plants, broken lights, oil stained driveway and garbage bins that were filthy. Rubbished stashed everywhere! Building filthy! Inside was...

This property should not be on reputable sites like Tripadvisor, Lastminute.com etc. We stayed for one night and we would not recommend it. All the previous comments from other guests are true. The women owner greeted us in much the same manner, complaining about relatives she had staying with her. The room had visible dust and cobwebs. There was a...

We stayed here for an overnight visit for a family function. It looked alright on the internet and seemed to be priced well. When we arrived the car park out front was filled with rubbish and old furniture that was being thrown out. It had been there for quite some time. We were met by a lady who constantly complained...

I stayed here for two nights in room no. 2 with my family. The host was unfriendly, from the first meeting. She was complaining about their problems (in having to sell one of their apartments) (why did we have to hear about their problems?) and had an unpleasant and unfriendly manner of speaking. I selected this place, as the pictures...
