My original review was taken down after the staff contacted me and requested that I remove my post. I declined however agreed/compromised to specify on this website that I was staying at the lodge rather than in the B&B rooms at the time of my complaint.. unfortunately I have stayed in the B&B rooms previously and found it no different. The staff were offended and could not understand why I would post something like this... ? blind or in complete denial. Seems to only be two ladies running the property so perhaps the problem is staffing but people need to see the state of this place if they are considering staying here! The photos attached are taken from one of the lodge rooms (same residence, different wing). Here is my original post.
The only pros being that it is close to the College of Nursing and reasonably cheap, approx $350 for 5 nights. Ideal if you just want somewhere cheap and don't mind roughing it a little bit. The photos on the website are grossly inaccurate - its smelly, dirty and very run down. I've stayed in hostels/backpackers much cleaner than this! Each time I've stayed, the rooms smell like a mixture of pot purri, cigarettes and wet dog. The sheets and towels are very worn (my last towel for the 5 nights had 2 holes and multiple stains), the bed sheets have had stains each time and twice I've found hair in the bed. Make sure you bring a shower cap as 2 of the 3 times I've stayed the shower not only sprays from the shower head, but in all directions from the wall. Also bring plenty of warm clothes as its freezing and no heating is available. Two of the three times I've stayed in rooms which have had broken venetian blinds and so luckily have had towels from home to hang up for privacy. Numerous suspect fluid stains and smears on the walls by the bed which no doubt have been there for a while.
