We apologize for this. The power outage was caused by the maintenance of equipment by the power company. We have posted a notice at the reception and told you about it when you checked in.

The room wasn't serviced for the six days I stayed; towels were not changed, rubbish bins not emptied, and new supplies of milk and biscuits not provided. I had to ask for a second cake of soap. About half the water from the shower flowed out under the bathroom door into the carpet in front of the linen cupboard because much of the bathroom floor slopes away from the shower drain hole. The whole bathroom floor needs to re-leveled and replaced.

Was very ordinary when compared to expectations. Bed was hard and floor wasn’t cleaned properly, door handle was loose and luggage rack was broken.

Motel is in a good position for access to the city (actually on the street that becomes the main street). People there are nice enough and the continental breakfast (serve yourself in a breakfast room) is a nice bonus however the condition of the motel, particularly minor things that could easily be fixed, is poor. In our room we had loose electrical fittings (including power point near door) which I tightened up with my fingers. Bathroom: shower rail fittings were coming out of the wall so curtain was probably 15cm lower that it should be in the middle and so dragged on the floor. All the towel rails in the bathroom were hanging on, just. Lots of weeds everywhere and the garden need a grand tidy up, especially the old mattress which leant against the fence in full view. Pool look rather unappetising. The whole place looks like someone bought it and then just cleaned the rooms and kept it going. While we were there a gang of actual bikies stayed overnight and decided to have a fist fight next to the breakfast room in the evening. Also had one of the other guests came to our door begging for money. I refused and then worried about my car until we left in case he damaged my car as a reprisal.
