There was a football tournament in town so due to heavy online bookings from football teams we try to manage the guests as best we can. Security is on at the Hotel until 4am but yes we would not be a destination for small children.

I didn’t like the fact that I was charged twice for the room I told them on check in that I had paid for the room on your website and the employee said that that amount would be refunded back to my account Not so!! Now I have paid$220 for a $110 room and am not looking forward to the drama of getting a refund

if we know who you are we can certainly do a refund. In some businesses you can train some staff until the cows come home and the cows never come home. So sorry this happened to you .

The rooms were pretty much what you would expect for a very low price - basic, fairly clean but nothing special

Hairs in the sink, pubic hair on the bench, mould in the bathroom, no lights on the porch, Venetian blind is not ideal as people can easily peek through.

Sorry you were placed in a room that was not ready for service .If you had let the reception know we would definitely have changed your room immediately. Our cleaners are very good and we have security on site to ensure your peeping toms are kept at bay. There are lights outside the porch area that come on at night do not know why yours were not working and we do not know your room number we cant assist you.

So sorry to hear your stay was not good. All motels of this size have maintenance issues that are dealt with but unfortunately if you do not let us know we can not assist you. I still can not find the room with the running toilet and the dripping shower.

This is a very basic accommodation within the confines of an aging pub. It is what you would expect from cheap accommodation, bathroom has taps that don't shut off and drips A LOT (despite a sign saying that there are water restriction and a bath is not allowed). The shower is inside a spar and only comes out of 3 jets on the shower head (on the whole head of @20, you would be better off going outside and using a hose). If you have issues with knees or legs, you will have issues getting out of the spa/shower. Aircon was set at 16oC (thats OK, it was 33oC outside) but the remote did not work, nor did the reading lights on the bed. If you go to the bathroom at night, expect to wake everybody else in the room up because the exhaust fan sounded like a 747 taking off. This was only one room but a quick look around suggested all rooms might have similar issues.
