Dear Rhona Hope all is well in Mount Kembla. I did apologise for the food left behind in the fridge and you appeared satisfied and even empathetic with my response as it was the very busy Easter Long Weekend. Tariffs in Batemans Bay are higher during certain Holiday periods at all Accommodation providers and you paid the peak rate during your 1 x night stay on Saturday 15.04.17. We are very disappointed with your review as we try hard to make our guest's stay as enjoyable as possible. We are approachable people, yet you failed to mention any of the other issues to me as outlined. From our observations we thought you and your husband were enjoying yourselves. Being the Leasehold Owners, our expenditure is quite substantial and this restricts our spending. The Motel was built in 1971 and does require some improvements that will possibly be carried out if future finances permit. Rust can be more prevalent in Coastal areas and this can expedite the corrosive process. Had we known of you not showering we could have made other arrangements for you to cleanse yourself. We look forward to your next visit and wish you well on your future travels.

Nice Motel close to town

Pros: Proximity to town
Cons: Towels could have been softer.
Location: Plenty of restaurants, shops, and activities nearby, eg mini golf, cinemas, Birdland and a short drive to Mogo Zoo
Clean, quiet and tidy room, close to town. Easy to walk/ride along boardwalk into town and right across from the river.

Old hotel needing complete renovation.

Pros: Friendly management, close walk to town.
Cons: See above (a lot!)
Location: lovely cruise up the Clyde river to Nelligen, Quaint little movie theatre, Great meals and entertainment at the Soldiers club, Lots of places to eat
Mattress may need to be replaced, dust mites attacked with a vengeance! Water from shower and basin always on the floor. Manager couldn't do anything until we left he said. Bed was too close to the wall for another bedside table. Water wouldn't go down drain in basin. Gaps around doors need plugging, light comes through and a bit see through. A paint job wouldn't go astray. Photos on line hid the roughness of the place. I suppose it was cheap for a reason?
