Booked 10 nights for April school holiday for our family fishing trip to Exmouth.
Got special deal by booking directly with hotel manager at $165 per night, non-refundable payment made 7 months advance. Apparantly the normal price is well over $200.
After reading Tripadvisor review, I didn't expected much but it was much worse than expected. I guess it's all comes down to supply and demand but I felt very ripped off paying that much money for the such a poor standard accommodation. It was one of the worst places I ever stayed.
The moment we walked into the room, we could smell very musty. My husband suggested to move to somewhere else, but I didn't want to move as the booking was non-refundable and accommodation in Exmouth is fully booked during Easter/ April school holiday. So we had no choice but staying there.
The carpet was quite dirty and smelly, the fridge didn't shut property at it's position so we had to pull out to next to the wardrobe. Found & killed many creepy crawly including centipedes and cockroaches in the room. Bathroom is very old with basic amenities. Actually their compendium reads “shaving gear, toothbrush, shower cap etc can be obtained free of charge at reception.” When I asked shower cap at reception and house keeping staffs, they didn’t have any knowledge of any extra bathroom amenities.
Continental breakfast was included in the room charge and it was most basic breakfast I ever had in any accommodation around the world. It consisted toast, cereals, yoghurt, plastic cheese, milk, juice, bowl of chopped up fruit. They had espresso machine which is capable of making good coffee, but unless you order black coffee it was too cold.
After staying 4 nights I decided to fly home early leaving husband and teenage son behind. I guess being male, they are more tolerant with bad accommodation but I couldn’t handle any longer.
