This was most unfortunate. You made a booking two hours after our closing time where the Wotif website clearly shows we close at 9.00 pm When you arrived at ten minutes to Midnight, I did not hsve a booking for you and you became annoyed when I questioned how you made the booking and what Travel Agent, because the booking was not made with us prior to the end of our day. During the argument I was rude to you and I am sorry for that. Because I did not have a room for you I was about to search other properties but you left. You booked and paid to Wotif online and you will receive a refund from them. We regret this situation and should have handled it better. Please note the operating hours of a motel before you book at a late hour

We did not have enough towels replaced, we did not have the milk replenished. we did not have the toilet paper topped up. The beds were not made. The room was not vacuumed all week. However we had a wonderful stay, the room was comfortable, bathroom and shower were great. The motel was nice and quiet. In a great position to get to all our activities. The staff were helpful and friendly. The manager was very helpful when we accidentally did not book for enough nights and found us somewhere else to stay on our last night. we really appreciated it and would not hesitate to recommend

Hi The housekeepers did miss a few details for a couple of days regrettably. I am glad we were able to make up for it however.
