Had the misfortune of staying here on 18th June. The room had mould on the bathroom sink, power point held together by gaffer tape, chair wobbled when sat on and nearly fell to bits, room stank of stale air and décor old and dated. Manager's attitude was rude, pig headed and far from professional. We arrived at night, light at unit door did not turn lights on, stumbled around in the dark looking for another light switch, accidentally broke an overhanging light shade which came crashing down at the slightest bump. The light was not properly fastened in place ie the 3 globes were sitting loose in their respective bases leaning up against the sides of the glass lamp shades which came crashing down at the slightest bump. So-called manager's response was that there is an isolation switch at the bed which turns everything on…like we are supposed to read their minds when checking in as NOTHING was explained to us and even stumbling around in the dark to find this in an unfamiliar room would be ridiculous. The manager just would not listen about the light being unsafe, refusing to budge…. but I noticed he replaced the whole thing rather than just the shades that broke….guess he just didn't want to admit to any wrong doing. This place is not 3.5 star by any stretch of the imagination; it is barely a one star. His attitude was rude and pig headed again the next day to my wife when she approached him had I known this he would have experienced my anger. His idea of discussing in private was around a corner (even wanting to argue in front of a child), grossly unprofessional. We moved to a significantly far better and professionally run motel down the road we had seen during the morning. When I told them of our experience they seemed to acknowledge like it was not the first time they had heard it about this place. We spoke to Wotif who we booked through who requested we put a complaint in writing to them, and we will also complete a report to the star rating company utilized by Australian Homestead. Their web site looks all nice, but it is camouflage, it is far from that, with amateur management and poor quality rooms. Note, if using Wotif, they take your money in advance, do not let them, cancel and book direct so you have control. But hopefully Australian Homestead will be avoided by even a few following our reports to be written. Word of mouth advertising is the best advertising....and vice-versa. Formal complaint was lodged with Star rating service who were intending to review the rating. We were refunded the cost by the 3rd part booking agent as they felt it necessary as Australian Homestead avoided the issue.

Whilst the room was fine, the matress on the bed was old, soft and uncomfortable. When booking I was a bit concerned about noise from the highway, however this was the least of our worries. The staff had decided to have a party on the driveway adjacent to the office. Whilst this did not bother us initially, as the night wore on the revellers became more and more intoxicated, very loud and started using very offensive language, despite children being around. Everytime I fell asleep, I would be woken up by yelling and profanities. It was around 4am before the party broke up and we were able to get a few hours sleep. Not something paying guests should have to put up with. I will never stay at this motel again.
