The reception staff went beyond their expectations. Hope booked our tickets to the penguin parade and called restaurants to book our diinner. The rooms were huge, clean and comfortable. The jacuzzi spa was great. I will stay there next time we need accommodation in the area.

I left a personal belonging in the room. Rang the Motel as soon as I got home. They were quite abrupt and said they would phone me back. That’s 24 hours ago! Not very good customer service. I will ring them again today! Also no doona cover on doona and felt sheets had already been slept on? If they hadn’t the bed was not made properly.

Thanks for your feedback and time on the phone.Sorry you felt we were abrupt towards you, it certainly was not the intention and yes we did forget to call you back, and we accept this.As discussed we triple sheet our beds, your understanding of motel hygiene and triple sheeting is incorrect.Our linen is from supplied by a hospital grade external provider and if you felt the bed had been slept in I know I would have raised the issue with management before sleeping in it.I appreciate your time on the phone and acknowledge your comments how clean everything else was in the room, and how you appreciated the little touches like biscuits and tea
