Practically no sound proofing due to connecting doors between rooms. As a result we were able to hear every cough, every venture to the toilet made by the man in the room next to us. The most unbearable part, however, was that we could hear every word from the tv, which he had on until midnight, as well as the... More

It's not the very small rooms that was so bad - that can be overlooked if the room is OK but these rooms are very tired & in desperate need of some work & a good clean especially the bathroom. The bathroom seemed bigger than the room itself! There was mould in the corner of the room, the window ledge... More

Only stayed one night & moved on to another motel. This motel is very old & needs renovating especially the bathroom, notably the shower(mould & cobwebs) & the toilet was wobbly! The room was very very small & the noise from the surrounding rooms plumbing was a nightmare. Vehicles are parked very close to the rooms & people leaving &... More

Stayed here for one night. It was clean, the woman in reception was very friendly and gave us lots of advice. Nice and quiet area too even though it's in the city. Only a short five minutes drive to just about anything. The blue lake was gorgeous.

Located in the middle of the CBD, the Grand Central is also Close to The shopping centre and Coles Supermarket! It is clean and safe for single visitors as well. The office is too happy to provide a microwave if you ask nicely! Fresh milk is offered as well!

Brilliant location but the rooms are very 'tired'. To be fair the bathroom is still in great working order, but things like the doors not quite closing without some fiddling around etc. means if you're a bit of an OCD stickler probably don't stay here.

This may seem over the top for some people to relate too but any person that relies on the Internet to conduct business, this review is a no brainer! Booked this motel as it was cheap & was hoping for a cheap & cheerful stay & it advertised free wifi ...crucial to my business. I couldn't even send an email... More
