    Recently stayed at the Eureka Lodge rooms were dated... Clean but towels were worn with dangling threads. Needs an overhaul. Otherwise it was clean. TV was too small for all to see. Heating was ok. Great location.

    What a great motel, it had everything that you need for a stay... including electric blankets for us that aren't used to the freezing cold nights! Everything was clean and the water was hot.. what more can you ask for?

    If the hotel manager was prepared to cancel my booking "if I had booked directly with him" but not prepared to do so because I made the booking through Wotif then shouldn't the hotel manager stop accepting bookings through Wotif? I was charged $50 for not staying at the place despite cancelling my booking due to extenuating circumstances. Wotif were excellent and refunded me their usual fee. They returned everything they could however the manager felt the need to keep $50. Does he think that's good public relations? Fortunately my family helped me out as I took my sick brother back home. When I rang to let him know if my disappointment at his actions he said he was also disappointed. With what or whom?

    Yes, the Hotel Management are correct. If you book through a booking search engine, read the conditions and it will advise you that you will be penalised if you cancel or update your checkin times. I have the same problem... More
