After driving late from Corryong in Victoria, it was 11.30pm and we needed a bed. Saw people moving in the restaurant and decided to stop here. Didn't want to disturb anyone else at this time. It was the owners watching TV and the sort of grumpy man checked us in. $118. It looks old fashioned outside but tidy. Inside we thought yep, old fashioned but tidy. However, once going in to the bathroom kitchen area we really saw the age and failings.
First of all your fridge, coffee area is sort of in the bathroom. Everything is very old chipboard, it looks clean but the age just makes it feel grungy. Shower was okay but again very dated and old. Towels felt clean and nice as did the sheets. Didn't want to risk looking at the mattress, dreaded the thought of it's age?
The bed was sort of comfy, but very bouncy and low. For the price, I wouldn't recommend it. I have seen better, cleaner Motels in smaller country towns for less than this price. It's just overpriced for what you get. NEEDS an desperate overhaul and reno.
