We chose to stay at the Paringa in late November mainly due to its convenient location.
It was not a good experience.
Undoubtedly the worst hotel we have every stayed in Australia - even rivalled the shockers we were subjected to in a group tour in Italy in 2011.
What renovations???? After being supposedly "upgraded" after a sewage smell apparently from the street got into the air con to our room during the night, the condition of the second room was little better. On a very hot day, the staff had not turned on the air con, and it was 33° inside the room. It took 6 hours to lower the temperature to 24° - still definitely the old and very noisy air conditioning, worn out, frayed towels, cracked hand basins, blackened grout, broken drawers....the list goes on.
Even more upsetting was the arrival off the street of an almost incoherent alcoholic with no luggage, keen to get to the pub across the laneway, who was offered a "deluxe room" at an least 25% cheaper rate than we had paid.
The only satisfatory features - friendly and (they needed to be!) very patient staff, and the bed was comfortable.
