The receptionist was really lovely and check in wad quick and easy. The room had everything we needed. The air con didn't work all that well but it did have free parking and was a short walk to shops and pubs. Would stay here again. Cheap but nice

I found the accommodation to be clean neat and tidy but the bed was like a snooker table --- hard as a rock -- the kettle did not work -- the bedside lights did not work - the kettle turned itself on at 2-30 in the morning and I nearly freaked --- any dramas there was a $50-00 call out... More

I booked a mystery 3star hotel on wotif . I got a broken airconditioner andwas told that was what you got with an economy suite. It's 2015 and I reckon aircon is a basic requirement even at this level. The rooms are foul. Do not stay here.

I wish I had read these reviews before we booked.. What a joke!! The staff are rude.. The aircon didn't work.. The room is filthy and the furniture is broken.. There's mould stains everywhere.. And we even got a piece of wood for free behind the bathroom door full of nails that's not even attached to anything.. Dangerous and dirty!!... More

All of the furniture was broken and disgusting and the room smelt musty and weird, the bathroom sink leaked non stop and the place just made you feel dirtying general, wouldn't recommend... More

This accommodation is NOT a "resort". The "family" room included mould in the shower recess, on curtains and ceiling fans. No handle on full-sized fridge, dangerously "hanging" power-boards, edging missing from rusty-legged dining table, numerous scuff and dirty marks on the walls. Cutlery was "thrown" onto the shelf of the cupboard with dirty "Hannah Montana" drinking glasses. Only one small... More

Photos did not match in real life. When booked did not give good details of what was in room thought we had a/c but no only a couple of rooms have a/c. We booked for 4 nights and we only stayed 1 night and moved hotels we could not stay there any longer.

Late arrival for our party of 5. Had to phone someone off premises to get room key.....What if you had no phone/credit? Very grubby rooms and very unhygienic as we had to wash delph and cutlery in bathroom sink. Thick layer of dust on curtains and furniture. We had to buy Glen 20 to disinfect everything and also buy disposable... More
