We stayed at this hotel for an overnight stopover during our drive from Sydney to Brisbane. We chose it because of it's Trip Advisor rating. The good: 1. Large, spacious room with ample storage 2. Large spacious bathroom with ample shower. 3. Room appeared to be clean. The ugly: The large can of bug spray in the closet was the first clue that they have a bug problem. Sure enough there was a stink bug in the bathroom shortly after our arrival. The next morning my husband was greeted in the bathroom by a large cockroach (see photo.) Other than the extra "guests", this is an adequate, convenient place to stay.
