My sister and I recently stayed four nights at the Comfort Crystal Motel in Broken Hill, visiting for a family reunion.
The motel is old, has no cross ventilation, no electric blankets, nowhere to put your toiletries in the bathroom, and the room we occupied was generally uninviting. A cold snap necessitated the use of the noisy, and inefficient air conditioner. Hair dryers are kept at the Reception desk, so a trek over there is necessary if you have the need of one, as it is if you need an iron. While a laundry is provided for the use of guests, there are no irons in the room. Mini bar contents took over most of the fridge space.
We had prebooked and paid for our stay otherwise we would have moved out after the first night. My sister lives in the north of Australia so she was particularly uncomfortably cold so we bought a hot water bottle just for the stay.
On the plus side the staff are marvellous, so helpful, and provided us with a hair dryer, iron and board which we kept in our room for the duration.
We were dismayed that most of our extended family were staying at other places in Broken Hill for a lot less money and getting much better value.
