“WORSE than your worst nightmare!!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2011

Booked for three days over long weekend. At $180 per night, I could honestly say it was the worst value for money in my life. Temperature was 7 degrees outside and yet beds had a thin bedspread and no blankets! When I phoned and requested a blanket from reception it was delivered in an untidy heap, was dirty and appeared to have had been dragged along the ground, no hairdryer in room, no hand towel, and the toiletries had been used by the previous occupant and left half empty! If looking for "comfortable" don't stay here!

Sorry your stay with us was so unpleasant. Our Air-conditioning units are reverse cycle and do have a heating option alternatively blankets are stored in wardrobe with extra pillows and an extra blanket is stored in foot locker for single bed. Unfortunately we do not have a 24 hr reception but we do have a night phone on the property for After Hours check-ins and emergencies. This phone line goes directly to the owner’s residence 24hrs. My Daughter responded to the after-hours call on the 2nd night of your stay. She got dressed opened reception turned off alarms got the key for the housekeepers supply room got a clean folded blanket locked up Housekeepers supply room locked and alarmed reception building and brought clean folded blanket to your room within 15min of your call.

Hairdryers are located in the bathrooms they are wall mounted. We have checked the room in question and there is a full operational hairdryer mounted to the wall next to basin. All Toiletries are replaced each day and checked by head housekeeper. We do however supply unwrapped soap and we may look at changing this to avoid confusion and unwarranted complaints.

With Regards to your rate, you booked through the wotif website at a rate of $180pn during the winter national drag racing carnival one of the busiest weekends of the year where rates go up to Rack Rates considerably higher than $180pn. Our regular rate is normally from $115-$130pn for a standard room.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2010

booked a deluxe room with full cooked breakfast, room was ok but there was a horrible smell within the room similar to that you get from drains, however it was a comfy night sleep. you definitely need a car too far from anywhere, went into ipswich not much to see or do a lot of shops empty, went into a pub in ipswich to be met by a topless barmaid not something i had expected when we walked in. i don't think i would stay again in ipswich but if you have a long drive and just want somewhere to stay overnight that this is the place. oh and the full cooked breakfast is just a choice of eggs or bacon on toast if you want egg sausage hash brown beans etc we had to pay extra. so although i had paid for a full cooked breakfast i had to pay extra to get a full cooked.

Rooms in question have been refurbished and drainage issues have been rectified by new Owner. Unfortunately we cannot apologise for topless waitresses at other venue but can reassure you that we do not have anything of the sort at our family run business. The Motel is in a very quiet area but only 5min drive to the Ipswich Mall (CBD) and only 1.1km from the Cunningham Highway, this makes it close to all amenities but peaceful enough to ensure you get a great night sleep. With regards to Breakfast, our new owner has introduced a full continental buffet which is included with a plated cooked breakfast when you book on a bed and breakfast rate. Our range of plated cooked breakfasts now include Bacon and Eggs, Sausage and Eggs, Omelet, Steak and Eggs or a BIG Breaky (Sausages, Bacon, Eggs, Hash brown, Tomato, Baked Beans and Toast). These options are all available to you and included in a Bed and Breakfast Rate, one per person of course.
