The toilet seat was cracked & the toilet leaked. When advised staff we were told the toilet seat was only a few weeks old, this was clearly not the case as the crack in the seat was stained. When in the spa, male staff appeared immediately making us feel awkward. Spa was cracked & leaking & was not working to full capacity. Had to wash up crockery & cutlery. Disappointing considering you pay for convenience.

Hi, Please accept our sincere apologies for your inconvenience. We investigated the issue and make sure that it would not happen in the future. We made our efforts to make your stay comfortable. We changed your room soon after your complaint about the toilet seat at the reception. Regarding the spa, it is not a private spa and anyone can use the spa. The reason why the male staff appeared is to ask if you want him to turn on the spa because it should be switched ON and OFF by the staff only. The male staff turned the spa ON and you used it. If the Spa was leaking, sorry but, you would not have used it. Once again we are sorry for your inconvenience.

By far the best motel we stayed in on our trip. Pros: Nice extra touches in the bathroom such as the magnifying mirror attached to the wall. Soap as well as shower gel provided. Also had plenty of space for our toiletries bags next to the sink. Our room was spacious with good size fridge. Lovely view of the trees and sky whilst laying on the bed of our room upstairs. Close to Coles, Target, and restaurants.. Cons: Small crack in toilet seat (Room 156). Crossing the road to get to the shops (a small town with big city traffic).
