I have backpacked Europe and and Less fortunate Asian countries, and never received such a rude thieving mentality like Sharon gave us.
Cleanliness - used towels in bathroom, the lounge area messy had an odour, pool and spa were visibly unclean for days.
All they were interested in was the money, perhaps getting another sale if we left early with paying full price for 2 nights and only staying the 1.
Sharon, the receptionist gave us no receipt upon payment.
Upon my request the next morning we received our receipt, which states conditions of refund policy.
No visible documents stated this on the premises.
Regrettably I will be taking this up with my legal aids and getting my refund for my stay.
Just unfortunate when your about to have a great relaxing time in Hervey Bay and there's so many other good spots we could've chosen.
