Our travel agent listed this as a first class hotel. When we arrived we thought ok looks nice. The communal parts look fine & the reception staff efficient & helpful. Our room was on the second floor, had a balcony with a lovely view across the golf course to the MacDonnell Ranges. The room decor was dated & the cleanliness needed improving, especially the bathroom (a few hairs which weren't ours). Someone (presume the previous guest) had left the alarm clock set for midnight (thanks, we didn't check it before going to bed). As I was now awake, got up to use the bathroom. Even before turning the bathroom light on I could see something big & dark on the floor by the loo. I'm not good with English spiders so the Australian ones freak me out so I got me husband to deal with it. Much to his surprise when he turn the light on, it was a big cockroach. It took cover in the rolled up bath mat, but we managed to trap it in a glass. The rest if the night was quiet. We let the man on reception know when we checked out the next day & he did make a note of it.
