Another night, another choice hotel. This time it was Parklake Shepparton.
Check in / service - great, they called during the day to confirm my arrival and front desk was friendly and patient as I have experienced in most country towns.
Location - Really nice, right across from the lake (hence the name) short drive into the city centre.
The room - well, the room itself is good, quite modern , comfortable bed (no electric blankets for those wondering) , good size tv , dinner table , lamps, the usual modernish Quality Inn style.
The Bathroom - Something out of an 80s porn flick! Bright pink tiles, gold shower frame with bi folding doors (extremely annoying) and gold taps! Absolutely hillarious.
Water pressure - Soft - medium (lots of people care about this, including me)
Irrespective of the laughable bathroom , the place was clean and that's what i care about the most.
Breakfast - I had a bed and breakfast business package, but I'd pay for the breakfast as it was fresh, (didn't look like fruit from the day before like some other hotels) , good selection of morning snacks
If you stay in winter, in this case October - bring extra clothes to wear to bed as the split system heating is absolute CRAP! I had it on 30 degrees at full fan speed and barely did anything, and I even had the extra blanket on.
This hotel has some huge potential for return stayers , all they need to do is pump a bit of money in it and people will come back. Unfortunately, unless its summer I wont
