Stayed here for two nights to attend a weekend conference with my husband. Receptionist was very good, but things went downhill from there. The room was tiny, it appears to have been a single room in which a double bed was placed (only one bed wall light, bed had to be moved away from wall to access wall power point etc).
Room appeared quite clean at first, until the next morning. When I took the shampoo sachet out of the decorative shell container, I found used dental floss in there and a long dark hair. That night I saw two cockroaches scurrying across the floor.
Decor dated. Room poorly designed, all internal doors opened the wrong way. Built-in furniture appeared to have been added as an afterthought, as only one of us could view TV from bed, blocked by wardrobe. Only one Foxtel channel available, despite guest book listing more. No iron, had to ask for one at reception.
Fortunately we were only in the room to sleep both nights, it would have been claustrophobic to stay there during the day.
The motel was advertised with a restaurant, when we dressed up to access the restaurant on Saturday night for a romantic dinner, we found it closed. The receptionist said it wasn't busy enough to open, yet both nights of our stay, the No Vacancy sign was up & the carpark was full.
Parking was difficult, while there appeared to be a carpark for each room, both evenings when we arrived back at 6pm we needed to park on a paved BBQ area about 50 metres from our room, as did other guests. We are regular visitors to Armidale & have stayed in at least five different motels, we rate this the worst by far.
