Just stayed at the apartments on Warrigal Road over the Australia Day long weekend as part of a group. The apartments are pretty run down - ceiling damage from water leaks from the upstairs bathroom, numerous marks on the walls, broken floor tiles in the kitchen and carpet in poor state of repair. The apartment needed a good clean including... More

We were seven people staying for 7 nights over christmas time. We were looking for an appartment with 4 bedrooms. Would have been nice with the arrangement of the rooms if the place wouldn't have been so terrible dirty and extremly run down. We had cockroaches and to use the kitchen was to nasty so we had to go for... More

We had 2 nights in a 4BR apartment at Lamplighter last weekend. We were a group of 8-in town for a race meeting-so all we needed was somewhere to sleep. The apartment is a bit run down-but clean and comfortable. The beds (2 doubles/4 singles) were comfy-with good linen and extra pillows and blankets provided. Kitchen had the basics and... More

Would not recommend, 3 bedroom apartment was very dirty and clearly has not been properly cleaned or throughly cleansed in a long time - which fits with others reviews. Wish i'd read reviews before i booked, as stay hear was awful. It seems that the details of keeping accommodation up to standard have been consistantly oveverlooked by hotel management as... More

Stayed in room 22 on the bottom floor.This is a reasonable motel, it badly needs a refit but it is clean and does feel clean. Reception staff member was courteous and helpfull. They have a dining room but don't seem to want to open it at night which was no drama for us as there is a club called Leighoak... More

The earlier reviews 4 to 5 years ago don't really reflect what this place is now. We stayed in apartment 7 & it was good, comfortable, clean vacation stay. 2 bedrooms downstairs, 2 upstairs (one queen-sized bed, one with twin beds, on each level), a bathroom each upstairs & downstairs, full kitchen, washing machine & dryer made our holiday very...

As a person who travels for a living, my expectation for accommodation has a base standard, and while this was personal travel, it was at the lower end of my standards. Don’t get me wrong, I have stayed at some horrible places - and this place was not horrible, just in need of some attention. We had an extended family... More

Our apartments have a high occupancy with large groups and as they have four bedrooms and often have eight persons staying. This causes heavy maintenance and when a group leaves who has stayed with us for a week or more cleaning and maintenance can take more than three hours. In some instances like this where a change over is in... More

We stayed in Apartment 6 with our small children and found the apartment filthy. Carpets, curtains, venetian blinds, kitchen chairs, the ironing board cover, the iron and the mop were all very dirty. The fridge was not cold as it needed to be defrosted (it is an old fridge) and the freezer door handle is broken and dangerous for small... More
