I booked the room as I used to stay here several years ago and it was good value for the price. Unfortunately this time I must say we were disappointed with the room. We stayed 2 nights and our room did not get serviced until 4 pm after the first night. The restaurant was closed and there was no Foxtel as advertised. When I enquired about Foxtel I was told by one of the staff it had been out for a while and there was no timeframe on repairs. It was still not working when we left.

Clean and tidy but in desperate need of an update. The information pack pack said there was Foxtel and none of the channels worked.

The staff were very pleasant and lovely to deal with. The room was clean but quite old. The shower head sprayed everywhere - the roof, out the door and I had to screw it all back up tight so I could shower. You had to have the shower mat almost in the shower as the water run across the floor. I probably would not choose this motel again.

The price was very reasonable compared to other motels when I was searching for a room in Albany. The room was nice and clean (bit of staining on the carpet but not overly bad). Location was good. Staff very friendly and efficient when checking in and out. I liked it.
