The room is nothing like their advertised picture or what they state. My husband, 17 year old daughter and I stayed there last week under the understanding that we were booked into a 'disabled room' as I am mobility impaired. The room has a queen (more like a double) bed and a single bed squashed into a small room that should only accommodate a queen bed. The single bed was sqashed against one wall the other bed squashed up against the side window. My husband had to climb up and in to bed as there was no side acess into it. Only one side of the electric blanket cord reached the power point so my daughter and husband had no heating in the bed (Orange in May can be bitterly cold!). The room was only a metre from the footpath and road and having only a window separating, meant constant noise from the busy street. The airconditioning units were very noisy and if not using your own room airconditioning, you could hear other rooms airconditioners running loudly. It was an extremely small room and very difficult to move the wheelchair in. Just a kettle and coffee/tea making facilities - no microwave oven or even toaster and only one drinking glass - in the bathroom. The room was very, very out dated and the bathroom did have additions placed to make it a 'disabled room' but there were still remnants of what it had been prior - rusty metal supports on the walls where previous attached funishings may have been. We returned to our room after it was serviced to be almost knocked out by the fumes of bleach. No disabled parking out the front of our 'disabled room' but was several parks down. I found this motel way too expensive for what it was - it should have been half the cost. Yes, there is the convenience of the RSL Club next door but remembering it is still just (very) basic 'club' food.
