We were very pleased with the room. It was cosy and spotlessly clean! We enjoyed a stroll across to the waterfront and enjoyed watching the bird life including black swans. A short drive to the marina was pleasant and just up the road from that we had a great evening meal at the Country Club. The service at Araluen Motor Lodge was friendly and welcoming, would definitely stay here again. Mogo Zoo is not too far, 15-20 min by car and well worth a visit.

Cute little place and the room was really clean and tidy. But I Didn't appreciate the lady at the reception that we got on arrival. I was sent for a business trip and the room was booked by my manager. Most of the hotel and motel that i went around Australia, this lady on the reception is worst and refused to give me information about my accomodation and she stated that I dont need to know anything because my boss is the one who booked my accomodation. She even dont want my information ..its first time that information was not needed. Add to the insult she stated that" they a lot of AIN ( assistant in nursing) being sent to their motel to stay. im sorry miss but i am not an AIN. She told me aswell that room will not get service after 7 days of my stay. What ?? I only get the room service after 7 days??? Really?? I dont need daily bed linen change but a least every 2-3 days.. and fresh towels would be nice. She also told me to pay extra $15 for my husband. Did I hear it right? I thought my boss pay for the room ... and not per person. Most of my trip was paid by corporate card and never heard that its only booked for one person. We book the room not just bed. This is the worst welcoming episode in my experience of working in rural and remote areas. Ultimately this could have been a 4.5 star review except for the attitude of the receptionist.

We appreciate your review and regret the confusion that occurred during your check-in. However you must appreciate that our Corporate Rate is considerably lower than our Rack Rate.This lower rate is based on workers being offsite most of the day, returning only to sleep. We were not notified by your employer that you were bringing your partner who would be onsite most of the day, over Easter! Most motels price according to the number of guests per room to cover water, electricity, wi-fi and linen etc. We do charge $15/n for any extra guests over the age of 1year. It is also important for all guests to be registered on arrival for security and insurance purposes. In regard to servicing of the room, self-contained studios are serviced weekly, motel suites daily. This is common practise for most accommodation providers. I hope this clarifies the issues you raised. Best wishes
