And then next i walk into the bathroom and theres a condom wrapper! I highly doubt the room was even cleaned from the previous people how... More

Having stayed at the Lamplight motel a few years ago we knew it' was not a 4 star property but with 4 kids we decided to try one of the Lamplight Apartments near the corners of Dandenong and Warrigul Rds in the hope this would be of a better standard. Alas no so be warned........ The apartment is more of... More

We had booked for seven nights. However upon arrival we found the apartment to be filthy - cockroaches, the last occupant's hairbands and pins, crumbs on the couches and stains on the floors, walls and furniture. Our ten months old crawled on the floor for less than five minutes and was covered in filth. The place hadn't been properly cleaned... More

Just stayed at the apartments on Warrigal Road over the Australia Day long weekend as part of a group. The apartments are pretty run down - ceiling damage from water leaks from the upstairs bathroom, numerous marks on the walls, broken floor tiles in the kitchen and carpet in poor state of repair. The apartment needed a good clean including... More

We had 2 nights in a 4BR apartment at Lamplighter last weekend. We were a group of 8-in town for a race meeting-so all we needed was somewhere to sleep. The apartment is a bit run down-but clean and comfortable. The beds (2 doubles/4 singles) were comfy-with good linen and extra pillows and blankets provided. Kitchen had the basics and... More

Would not recommend, 3 bedroom apartment was very dirty and clearly has not been properly cleaned or throughly cleansed in a long time - which fits with others reviews. Wish i'd read reviews before i booked, as stay hear was awful. It seems that the details of keeping accommodation up to standard have been consistantly oveverlooked by hotel management as... More

Stayed in room 22 on the bottom floor.This is a reasonable motel, it badly needs a refit but it is clean and does feel clean. Reception staff member was courteous and helpfull. They have a dining room but don't seem to want to open it at night which was no drama for us as there is a club called Leighoak... More
