The place was nothing like on their actual website or in photos showing the room we stayed in. Room- Absolutely nothing matches the photos on the site, no furniture is modern, all old straight out of the 70’s from a garage sale. Stains all through the carpets and very dusty. Also the room had a creepy viewing window from the main area. Restaurant and room service- No restaurant or room service even though their actual site says they offer both. Apparently it is due to restructuring that has been ongoing since 2015 Facilities- Pool was surrounded in mould and didn’t want to swim in it as we didn’t want to get sick. Spa in the pool area looked like someone hammered bit of wood to keep the structure up. They might as well cut that off they’re website. I’m talking about their website when I mentioned website each time. Not external. Just wanted to make this clear. Things I picked up on- Place is own by the same place down the road, so I doubt by our stay, that they’re give an inch or caring for this property. More so on there other one down the road. Positives on Checkers “resort” - The staff are friendly and Menulog. That is all. The staff can only work with the tools they’re provided. They’re not to blame, it all comes down to the owners. It is absolutely criminal that they take your money FALSY advertising on their own site. I think ACCC need to know. You’d be better paying less and staying in a pub. At least you’d get what you payed for.

Good Morning, thankyou for the high rate. upon making the reservation you may request a microwave to be placed in the room as we do have a spare one for this purpose. Cutlery and Plates are in our storeroom so guests just need to see us for the dinner ware. we hope you stay with us again

A restaurant was advertised and it doesn't exist, the delivery food that is recommended is closed indefinitely according to the internet, happy hour is promoted in the bar but we were not allowed in because of a wedding, uber eats doesn't operate here, when I finally found food there is no cutlery or plates ( to eat from the delivery restaurant that does not open) so we ate dinner out of a coffee cup with a plastic spoon. When we went to close the curtains the curtain rail fell off and the curtains above the door are still on the floor. Because the curtains don't work and only half the main lights are working I am sitting by the romantic light of my laptop as I write this. If I had known all of this I would have made plans for it but I picked this place so I could just arrive, eat sleep and leave. Its an expensive crap room when all of the above is considered, if all of the above wasn't the case I would still say the place is overall ordinary but the room is clean in the darkness of only half the lights.

Good Morning, we apologise that your stay wasn't satisfactory. As you booked on a 3rd party website we do not have power over what they advertise. We have many times asked them to change their site as we do not have a restaurant on site, but there are a few restaurants with in walking distance and over 20 restaurants that deliver via (all you need is to ask front desk). As for no cutlery and plates in the room we do have supplies in our storeroom that guests may come and ask for if they wish to dine in their room. Unfortunately we were closed to the public for a private wedding however if you wanted some drinks to take back to your room we would have been more than happy to get them for you. As for the Maintenance issues thankyou for bringing it to our attention and everything you have mentioned has been fixed. we really hope you will give Checkers Resort a second chance. Kind Regards Management

The guy at check-in was appalling. He called me twice prior to arrival as there were only 2 guests to check-in and he wanted to finish early. Upon arrival the reception was unattended. He appeared and was on the telephone. He continued this conversation throughout my check-in. He pointed to where I needed to sign & double-tapped his finger at the credit card section on the form to indicate I needed to show him my card. Then he pointed upwards to indicate I was upstairs. At no point did he engage in conversation with me nor make any attempts to end the call.

The room itself was fine, it was just the Amenities, ie; Pool and tennis court could have done with some TLC.
