The experience has spoilt our Australia trip over Christmas and New Year's: We get to the Blue Pacific late at night and there is no room available for us even though we have made a confirmed and already paid for reservation months before - we got a very good deal for the room for a Christmas Day. Instead we are "outsourced" to a truly disgusting motel down the road with a disgusting, filthy, terrible and what not room offered by an equally representative owner lacking almost all teeths and human speech. As the room was absolutely unacceptable we return to the Blue Pacific and get transferred to another shabby motel down the road (which was announced by the Blue Pacific as a upper class hotel). We finally end up staying there because we are tired and in spite of the shabby appeareance of the motel the room was somewhat clean. We were utterly unhappy with Blue Pacific because (a) we were told that they have been tried to conatct us all day but we never received any messages neither by phone nor by mail, (b) we were never paid the difference between the shabby hotel we finally slept in to the Blue Pacific, and (c) a situation we listened to at the reception made us doubt the reasons why there was suddenly no room available for us but for other guests who came short notice. Do yourself a favor and drive miles around Swansea and its motels, hotels or whatever they are called in this town.
