Overall spent minimal time at the hotel as was just staying overnight. We had travelled from adelaide and arrived at 9.30pm unaware that the front office had closed at 9pm. Front office staff lived upstairs and noticed we had arrived. Instead of checking us in politely - gave us attitude for being late saying we should have called and thought we were not showing.

Hi Tony, We are sorry to hear you felt that way at check-in. However, It is unfair to rate us poor for something that is not our fault. This is not a 24x7 open reception motel and is typically the case with most of the regional motels throughout the country. It is important to read your itinerary that lists reception hours & contact details, especially when traveling late. You failed to arrive during open hours & didn't call either. At check-in, you were merely advised it is a common practice to call prior when running late so a late check-in can be organised.
