“Ant infested”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2006

I went to Vic for the weekend and stayed for 3 nights. When I woke up the first morning, I realised the bed and the room was infested with black ants. Being weekend, there was no one at the reception. The room was ok and had a bed and toilet; and I did not expect anything more as you cannot expect delux room for $59/night but the ants put me off and I had to live in the ant infested room till Monday.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2005

The whole formula 1 concept is not for everyone. The room is essentially a concrete shell with a prefab bathroom inserted in it. The shower was just ok. The room was spotlessly clean but the beds are terribly uncomfortable. Make sure you know what you pay for as this is a very cheap concept hotel and no extras are included. Good for people on a very limited budget
