Stayed one night here and glad it wasn't any longer than that. Where do I start? Upon arriving, noticed the garden was overgrown with weeds and looked like it really needed some TLC. Reception was locked up and had to ring someone to get our key. Entered our room and the room smelt musty. The front window wouldn't lock so we weren't happy leaving anything in our room unattended. There are only 2 pillows in the room and they are very thin. No extra pillows stored in the cupboard, just a spare blanket. The standard of cleanliness was very poor, the hair dryer in the bathroom was caked with dust, like it hadn't been touched in 6 months! The blue hand towels were covered in white lint. Also, there was no bathmat so we had to stand on cold tiles when in the bathroom. To top it all off there was a blown light bulb, which normally wouldn't worry me but adding it all up it was funny.
Time to open the fridge and check out our complimentary breakfast items. Butter expired 3 months ago, jams and spreads all expired 2 months ago. mmmm yum. No bread as a previous review mentioned.
I believe this place might have been good once, but feels like it has just been run down. It boasts 4 stars from RACQ, but I think they need to update that! It doesn't help that the pub located next door has closed down. I also think they should remove the dinner menu from their guest book for the pub which is now closed!!
The location is pretty good, but with so many other great places in the same area, I really couldn't recommend this place. I will definitely not be staying here again.
