The motel room that time forgot This what we found. On first opening the door to our room we noticed damage as evidence of a break in attempt with a jemmy bar. Then the musty air quality hit us. It was getting cooler as evening approached so we tried the air con which was old and very noisy. The din took some getting used to but the stale dusty smell coming out of it due to filthy filter was something else. The curtains are about 40 cm narrower than the window and don’t match anyway, so forget privacy. Three power outlets are in dangerous broken condition. Some don’t work even if you are game enough to use them but make sure you don’t have wet hands. The smoke alarm is ancient and a newer one has been removed so this is illegal. Two of the lights are hanging off the wall. The toilet is old and stained. The exhaust fan in the bathroom is choked with dust The grouting around the sink is missing or coming away and not hygienic The towel rail bracket is broken There are holes in the carpet The main light fitting is filthy and contains bugs probably now extinct. The kettle is also extinct. The light comes on but it has simply ceased to be.

Very disappointing, we have been before and even tho an older property was quiet and secure. Security is no longer being used and the standard has dropped terribly - security gates no longer used, state of the rooms, very loud arguments at all hours of the morning.

There was nothing to like about the property. Most lights did not work. All power points were cracked and damaged in one way or another and certainly did not appear safe. The motel is just generally run down.

While our room was quite spacious and quiet that was the end of positive attributes. The floor moved as we walked and the carpet was very shabby and stained. The bathroom was very ancient and battle scared beyond belief. There were cracks in the wall and a lot of evidence of flies being in the room over the years. This room was a shocker, the worst I've ever stayed in, and I'm not young. If I'd paid a low price to stay there then I'd accept that I got what I paid for but this was not the case. The hotel is being renovated but they certainly should not be renting this room out!
