Its the worst accomodation we have ever experienced in 40 years of travel. Beds and tv was the only plus in this room., and we were given fresh towels everyday, but beds never made or change of sheets or rubbish emptied, stains on the carpets, it stank of spilt beer on first two nights. Aircon failed working we froze on the first night, fortunately we were able to borrow an oil heater from family which we left on 24hours a day They did not attempt to fix it...disgusting service.(NO SERVICE) Its not a hotel, no meals or drinks...false advertising on website. On reporting these things at end of stay we were offered $150 discount..or extra night,(which we refused) we are interstate visitors and had to fly home, even offered two small bottles of wine...how disgusting Staff had very poor english and communication skills . On arrival the owner of the business presented in dressing gown and had no idea where our booking was, it was very cold waiting outside and then had to climb so many stairs.....just the pits. The kettle was so stained it was hard to see the coil, the bathroom had cracked tiles mould and only one person could fit it.The hot water took one minute and 40 second to arrive at the taps.

1 star because the bed was decent. We complained due to our room smelling strongly of cigarettes, we were offered another room but they all smelt the same. Not overly clean. No batteries in any remotes. Staff were friendly enough.

stayed here to be closer for a funeral the following day: dirty, cold, holes in the bathroom door, had to ask for the remote control for the heater to be fixed for heater. had to ask for extra blankets - or would have frozen. Then there was the two awful beds - both mattresses were the worst I think I've ever slept on - made squeaky noises that woke me up every time I moved. And don't get me started about the NOISE........hardly slept because of loud voices talking till very late. not enough cutlery of crockery and all from op shop I think. The one and only good thing about this motel - the hot water in the shower. And then there was the $100 bond they take and don't give back to you for several days......WTF - never experienced paying a bond before and I have stayed in a lot of hotels.

I gave it 2 stars one as it's the lowest and 1 because he checked us in at midnight when nothing else was available. But seriously it looks nice from the outside, but the carpets were badly stained the furniture should be at the tip and the bathroom badly needing renovation. Pretty much didn't want to touch anything in the room it looked so feral. The bed did however appear clean.

I strongly recommend you find another hotel. Hotels air conditioning was filthy, I had to clean 🧽 dust out of filters. I have never seen such a place let go to horrific standards. Old dried out food was embedded into tiles in kitchen, cooktop was filthy. A couples room has 2 single separate beds, bathroom was disgusting 🤢 ring marks in basin and mould in shower area ; along with unclean non-slip bath mat. I was surprised that the towels were ok. But that was it. Now I know why they take money first and non refundable.people fighting and arguing at night can be heard. Also I almost forgot that the door’s main deadlock security lock does not lock.
