The location is great, I... More

We are regular visitors to Wandarrah Lodge and are so for many reasons! The friendliness of the owners Betty and Wayne are the major drawcard. The Lodge is immaculately presented with a very friendly atmosphere. Wandarrah is located close to the beach and a great walk in to town.

The facilities itself are in a good condition. Kitchen is well equipped and bathrooms are clean. The lodge itself is on sale. That is probably the reason whythe lodge isa not busy. This (in combination with missing heaters inside the rooms) leads to rather cold temperatures inside the hostel. The owner lend us a heater but we are not allowed... More
