I do not know where to start! We arrived to a voice from behind a locked door 'I'm on my lunch break, just go in...!' So we did, unfortunately.
There was a no shoes inside rule, which we ignored because the carpet was soaking wet and filthy dirty.
The room was uninhabitable, no other way to describe it. Simply disgusting! The carpet was again, wet, dirty and ripped. The window was broken (banged all night) and wouldn't close, therefore the bed was soaking wet... Speaking of the bed it certainly hadn't been changed before we arrived. It was filthy and had a lot of body hair between the sheets! We ended up in our sleeping bags, not sleeping at all that night. The wall paper was peeling, there was mould and cobwebs! Simply awful! The whole place needs gutting!
Bathroom much the same, absolutely horrible! Mouldy, dirty and smelly!
We didn't even venture into the kitchen/ lounge.
We booked and paid for 3 nights, left after the 1st and we not given a refund.
We find it unbelievable people have reviewed this place so highly. Especially when we paid $70 for a double room here! We quickly checked into Ibis Styles in the centre for $74....100% better!
This is not a harsh review, it is completely honest!! I wouldn't wish that experience upon anyone else and want to warn people what it's really like.
Sorry Lantana Lodge if this offends you, but this is simply unacceptable...!!
