Arrived and discovered no tv control, phone not working. Sorted out quickly enough with staff. Beds very uncomfortable, didn't top up the little milk containers the second day. No fly screens on door or window so mozzies got in. RAAF planes fly in extremely low late at night sounds like you are getting landed on! As for the restaurant attached... More

I needed accommodation in Richmond so I chose this motel because Best Western is a well-known brand so I did expect that it should have certain standards. I stayed there for 4 nights in late December to early January. Check-in and check-out were quick without any fuss. My room was very spacious. It's old alright, but it's clean and was... More

Stayed here for 2 nights with my family of 5. Had a decent sized family room with kitchen. Kids had 3 single beds in one area then we had a bed in another closed off area where the kitchen was. Bathroom was large, shower had great pressure. Was a bit noisy at night with other guests banging doors. The on... More

I chose this motel because I needed accommodation in Richmond NSW. The motel is a little faded but was clean and comfortable. I'd rate it as no more than a 3 star establishment. Staff were friendly and efficient. Everything in my room worked. Facilities were OK although the bed was a bit firm for my liking. There was an excellent,... More

i didn't have high hopes initially, but they were higher than what was offered. as i always maintain, you have to match your ratings to your expectations. first and foremost, i was not expecting the shangri-la. this is a motel. in richmond. i'm not going there for a holiday. it's effectively somewhere to sleep. already, my barometer is set low....

Unfortunately my notebook threw a hissy and I didn't access Trip Advisor, otherwise I would not have stayed. Met at reception with total disinterest and from then onwards it went downhill. Had we not driven for 8 hours and were tired we would have walked out after seeing the room.The rooms were dark, furnishings old and worn, beds that should... More

Three family members stayed in three rooms in March, all the rooms were over priced for what was delivered. Rooms are dirty, beds are old and you slide to the middle when trying to sleep. Unable to fill the kettle from the sink without using a glass. Advertised plasma tv did not exist. This place is supposed to be 4... More

The carpet is as old as the hills and the bed had to be the most uncomfortable I've ever slept on in a motel. The bathroom had a lot of visible mould in it, a frightening amount actually which shows what little pride they have in the place and costs bugger all to fix properly with products like oil of...

You know the expression "You shouldn't judge a book by its cover"? Well that certainly applies here. The place looks quite inviting from the street, and on its website. But once you venture into it, it's a dive. Once I made it past the arrogant twerp on reception, I found my room (no directions offered) in a dark part of... More
