We had to hold a bead sheet up over the bathroom door as the door fell of the rollers and could not be repaired, The shower corners had mould. Opened the door to get the kettle and the screws fell out of the hinges, Reception closed at 6pm even though it stated 9pm, sign on the door said to contact the people in the restaurant next door, this had been closed for ages, phone number rang out so we could not contact anyone. This room was extremely over priced at $165 for a family room in the condition it was in.

We stayed for one night on our way through town. Unfortunately disappointed with our stay. The pool was filthy and not maintained. Our room had cockroaches running from the toaster and found baby dummies from past guests under the bed.

It was clean and spacious. The bed was comfy. The only thing I didn’t like was the fact that the tv kept on turning off and then restart as it made it hard to watch a show.

The bed was comfortable but the room had not been cleaned very well and the TV had terrible reception.
