The property is old and outdated. Carpet was unclean. Room smelt damp. Staff could hardly speak English. When I asked where the room was at time of booking the fellow in reception had to go and have a look to find it. Probably the worst accomodation I have stayed in for a long time. They really need to get their act together. It spout my time in Port Stephens. You need to refuse to lust the property until it is properly presented. DISASTER.
