Don't book here. Dirty, smelly, rude. Only wish I'd read the previous reviews on here before I booked. Worst decision I've made in a long time. Don't trust the online pictures - place is nothing like it

This place looks OK on the outside, but what a dump!! It is under renos, but that is no excuse. Our room was dingy and dirty (there were even a pair of dirty socks under the bedskirt...NOT OURS!). Towels were grey and stained and dishes were not clean either and no real cooking pots or pans. The only good thing... More

I didn't stay here, but my mum did. Useless owner gave me the wrong extension to my mother's room, which resulted in us not being able to contact each other for four days. He told my mother he thought she might not want me put through to her room because we might have "family issues". Weirdo. Took him two days... More

We booked 2 nights at this hotel through AA and only stayed one. He wouldnt refund our 2nd night. Our room was tidy but very unclean. Nail polish and other stains on the duvet cover and curtains, stained towels and bathmat looked unwashed. Splatter from cooking on the walls and doors look never cleaned! Even a hair in the shower!... More

This place is disgusting. The owner is rude and demanded us to pay on arrival instead of on check out, even though he had out credit card details. The bowl with the sugar and coffee had what looked like a pubic hair, the paint on the window outside room looked gross, the cutlery in the drawer had rust on it,... More

Unfortunately I looked in the AA not trip advisor. Now I'm not fussy, I've stayed at all sorts but this is just GROTTY!!! Shame on AA for even listing it, photos are completing misleading. Maybe cheepish but this doesn't give licence for disgusting. Such bad value, for $15 extra last week we got apartment level living. DO NOT STAY HERE!

This place is disgusting, they don't clean the rooms and the owner Peter is the worst host you have ever met in your entire life, I am not exaggerating, such a rude person to guests. This ace should not even be allowed to be accommodation for the public.
