We were on holiday, not working out back of Bourke, where you would expect to find this quality, it looks good outside, so we were fooled into accepting a room,
The ceiling fan squeaked our greeting, followed by taps dripping in chorus in the bathroom. It was hot, so we turned on the conditioner, and it worked, but didn't oscillate.
We stayed long enough to debate our options, then went without explaining nor seeking a refund, because we didn't feel like any evidently pointless discussions with management.
By the way, plenty of other motels were cheaper, with top quality!
Nezzies

Room Tip: Unless you are on a really tight budget, find another motel.

The motel Tannum on the Beach is the worst motel we have ever had the misfortune to book into . The room was dirty and required maintenance. Additionally, it was overpriced.

We booked in for two weeks, however, only could handle one night. Further, what was disappointing, he tried to charge for the whole two weeks.

Do not go there.

The were a number of vertical blinds missing. The room had a funny arrangement: a single bed with a double bed against the wall. There was cereal and toast included but nothing special for $140. The walls were paper thin and they didn't really block out any outside noise.

How this motel stays in business we don't know.we stayed here in June 2012 & found it very disgusting.bbq looked like it hadn't been cleaned in months maybe even a year or more.the bed sagged in the middle.toilet system was broken.could hardly see through sliding fly wire door cos of caked on dust, dirt,lint.ants where having a great time in our food.had to throw it out.information booklet was no help as we couldn't read it as some was stuck together due to recent spillage over it.rooms where fitted with Austar but with no instructions on how to use it we didn't get to watch it.at the end of our stay we spoke to the owner about these issues & it didn't seem to bother him at all.he just blamed the cleaners, & said he would speak to them about it.but I don't think the cleaners are all to blame.i think a bit of maintenance around the motel is called for highly!for the price at $145.00 it's an absolute joke..our tip DON'T GO THERE!

OK what do one say. words are not enough to start. DONE WITH. to try to find a minimum of 200 characters of complaints would only start me writing a book, and reporting this place. I trusted the website for honesty before booking, and am very sad of the outcome.

My Wife and I travel a lot but in the last 20 years of travelling this would have been the worst motel we have stayed in,First appearances can be deceiving until we noticed towel from previous guest,ancient rusty multioven still with food from recent guest,As for the bbq i wouldnt let my dog eat of it,All these things could be easily fixed with a bit of pride from owners but in the mean time avoid like the plaque.
