For deposit: credit card details on a paper???

Pros: -
Cons: Use an computer and a booking software and no paper in order to store credit card details of customers! Repair the fridge. Use Pest Control
Location: Location is ok if you have a car.
The reception wanted to note down my credit card details on a paper. How secure is this? Fridge was not working at all! Cockroaches found in the bathroom. The price is similar to a hotel, but quality and management is in my opinion lower motel level. This place is a non-go for me.

My Stay at Emu Park

Pros: Its Location
Cons: see above
Location: small village with friendly people, nice cafe's and real community feel
From the outside the place looked good and were greeted with a polite smile, however the first thing the lady said was I made a mistake ( me not them) with the booking and if you want two rooms it will cost an extra $55.00 and i would have to move into one room the next day as they did not have the extra room. I paid because I just wanted to rest after a long journey, The accommodation was very basic and shabby, after I slept I wanted to check my emails to see what the booking stated but I had to pay $10.00 but the booking clearly stated that I had booked two rooms for two nights ( Wotif can confirm) but I just wanted to enjoy my stay so I went out for the night came back and slept, next we were told that we needed to move into a room with no air con right next to the bar. I was frustrated so I went to a Central Plaza in Gladstone where I stayed in a fantastic two room apartment, with internet, foxtel and all the trimmings you would expect and it cost about $50 a night less than Emu park. Time will show that if you do not give quality services but expect top rates you will fail. This place could be beautiful if the owners spent a small amount on dressing the rooms eg Air con, Fridge new beds and a tidy up and train staff how to operate a professional business.
