Absolutely terrible customer service had to leave part way through my 5 day stay due to no hot water and no resolution of the issues. I was unable to use amenities paid for, no ongoing check up or problem solving when complaining more than once regarding issues was told when I left ohh so you’ve finally had enough I would have someone call and arrange refund never received a call and when I emailed requesting full refund given the issues and needing to change accomodation there has been no response. Unprofessional customer service all round would never stay here again given I often travel to Philip Island due to having friends and family that live within 4 minute drive of this facility.

Regarding our customer service I very politely spoke to you with our current situation and you seemed ok with it all. As for the hot water situation we offered you another room until it was fixed, which it was repaired the night you left. I have not received a call from your self regarding a refund, so how was I meant to know. Providing alternatives where not an option you where willing to take. I can only deeply apologies for the un prepared situation.

Very nice motel with up to date bathrooms. We booked a family room which actually had 3 single beds in a seperate room for the kids. Very good value and would highly recommend for a cheap short stay
