What a horrible place. Stayed there on business and chose it myself because of the location, and it appeared OK on their website. No shampoo/conditioner supplied, heater not working, tv reception inadequate, stained furniture, unclean walls etc. Awoken at 1130 pm to a (I assume) drug affected crazy lunatic screaming obscenities at full volume, then proceeded to bang on windows/doors...

I arrived late for two nights and was completely disgusted. I put my bag in my room and went online to book another hotel but had no choice other than to stay for one night. Creepy, dirty and disgusting is all I can say. The bed had been used and the sheets just pulled up, holes in the carpet, light... More

same issues as previous 'terrible' reviews, unclean sheets, filthy carpet, smells... don't go & give them $ if you can avoid it. worse place we have seen in Melbourne, better to stay at hostel if on budget. they shouldn't be taking any money for this.

The place needs bulldozing. Our room stank and the bedclothes were used. There was vomit at the foot of the stairs and shady characters lurking everywhere. After a quick discussion, we phoned another motel and left, cancelling our booking on the way out. We then got a call from the company we booked through online and told them about the... More

This place is not fit for staying in. Leaking shower I can only assumed as there was a plastic bag over it. Didnit shower due to concern getting an infection as mould and the grout was that dirty. Dirt along the skirting and holes in the door with a bag pushed into it. I would rather have camped . The... More

For what we paid we expected a LOT more! All the bedding was stained and ripped, cockroaches, mold, fridge was filthy, only got towels when we asked and they were ripped and holey. They did make the bed each day but little else unfortunately. At over $100 a night I expect a lot better and we will not be going... More

If you are looking for a cheap, basic no-frills place to stay then this is it. Accommodation was clean but very basic, however as a plus, there were tea and coffee making facilities in the room. The room had not been cleaned from the previous occupants, and remainders were found on the floor. There were no towels; we had to... More

Structure problems, leaking bathroom sink, broken toilet roll holder, light fixture hanging by one wire only, both bedside cupboards broken, door to wardrobe dropped. Large hole in ceiling above toilet. Shower head streamed from many directions. Then there was the bed - filthy quilt cover, unwashed sheets. Had to buy own bedding to use. Not to mention the holes in... More
