booked a triple room weeks ago as we were traveling with 4 children for daughters 13birthday dinner celebrations. On arrival at 1.30 pm, we were told they were booked out so had given us two rooms that were a few doors down from each other. Wasn't to upset by this but alarm bells rang as soon as we entered the... More

The most unhelpful receptionist in the history of hotels. Anything and everything was far too hard! Escorts operating in the complex, felt very unsafe at all times, dirty rooms, people drinking in balconies that you had to walk past to get to your room. Pay a lil extra for something nice!

This place is probably the worst overnight motel I've ever been to, my partner and I stayed here because we had an event close by. No ironing board, toilet didn't work, no hot water and barely water pressure, springs coming out of the side of the mattress, the key card stopped working and staff charged an outrageous amount for bottled...

Upon arrival we were greeted by an extremely rude receptionist. Everything and anything was far to hard for her and she made you well aware of it. The room: at first glance it wasn't to bad considering the price BUT, the cleanliness was far from acceptable. All bowls plates and cups were filthy and after walking from the bathroom in... More

The apartment had a terrible smell and definitely needs some maintenance. The carpet in the bedroom was very worn and was coming up from the floor. The only blanket on the bed was as thin as a sheet. The extra blanket in the closet was a little thicker but was stained as well as the curtains. The towel rack in... More

This motel is on a really busy road but very close to everything. We had a studio apartment which smelt very badly of cleaning products and something that smelt like rotten food. The room itself was clean but the shower had mould in it and some previous occupants hair on the walls and the toilet roll holder was not clean.... More

I booked this hotel through booking.com and requested a ground floor room due to my daughter having foot surgery, on arrival we were placed in a first floor room which involved a staircase, after a five hour drive. I was too tired to argue. The room definitely was not as depicted in the pictures on booking.com. After a sleepless night... More

My partner & I needed overnight accommodation for a function at the Pineapple Hotel. I read the reviews on this place (it's literally just across the road) and was not inspired by what had been written. Since it was in a perfect location & price range I decided to ring them up & ask some questions. I ended up booking... More
