The reception was friendly and nice however the bathroom and kitchen areas were grimy, and the toilet was visibly dirty. There were not adequate utensils; there was a toaster but no plates or knives. There were no bowls. The coffee cups had stain rings in them.

When we arrived in the room there were 8 blowfly’s in the room. Manager gave us insect repellent but didn’t offer to vacuum them up or to change rooms. One of the switches on the PowerPoint for the hairdryer was broken & dangerous. There was no hand towel. One bedside lamp didn’t work because I presume the main switch hadn’t been turned on and it was IMPOSSIBLE to plug the lamp into the PowerPoint. It was late at night and we didn’t want to disturb anyone and/or have someone come up and try to turn it on. When we mentioned these things to manager next day he didn’t apologise or make a note of our complaints.

Room was clean and spacious enough for 2 adults and 2 kids. There was a microwave and toaster in our room which we weren’t expecting. The TV only had basic channels and no option for Netflix which was disappointing but other than that we had an enjoyable stay.

I was very unhappy as the reverse cycle heating did not work at all. There was a small fan heater supplied which was not able to heat up the motel room in very cold Ballarat. I had three cold children and was freezing myself. Only 2 of the beds had working electric blankets, the shower was not hot in the morning, also the tv had terrible reception and was not watchable. After reporting the problems it was clear that these were not new issues, there was no offer of discount or anything else. Would not recommend.
