It needs to be updated and a lot of things fixed. It’s really in poor condition. The gentlemen at the front was up for a chat. It says Foxtel and a write up in the book is about them cancelling it. There’s no restaurant on site when it says there was.

And in my chat i said thanks to jobseeker and casuals leaving because the government pays them more to do nothing it is just me, hence no restaurant, we are in different times, many businesses closed in this town and some still cannot open, we are open to clueless people like you who I should be able to write a review on, as for poor condition read review below this from someone who clearly doesn't expect 5 star for a hundred dollars

Thank you for taking the time to respond and unlike the person above you clearly understand the relationship between what you pay and the motel standard, we know things are perfect but I am doing what I can and the 2 out of 5 above is ridiculous but thankfully I can read a review from someone like yourself who understands the times we are in.

Thank you for taking time to respond. We no longer have water in the fridge after watching a current affair and seeing what some people do in water jugs and ice cube trays years ago. Sorry.
