“Reasonable for Kal”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

Clean, reasonably quiet but a little rundown. Outside lights on all night resulting in room being lit up. Room not cleaned propoerly before arrival - papers behind fridge, used plastic cutlery on floor etc. Restaurant next door is good and has a very good though expensive breakfast.
All in all, given prices and quality of accommodation in Kalgoorlie this is a reasonable choice.

Thanks for taking the time to provide your feedback, I'm glad you enjoyed the Blue Monkey Restaurant. Apologies about the state of your room before arrival. We strive to maintain and a spotless property and I have passed on your feedback to our housekeeping team.

All of our rooms have block-out curtains so we don't normally have a problem with the rooms being lit up at night. As always, if you have any requests during your stay please come and speak to our friendly front office team.

Regards,

William Brooks

I have been in 3 star motels that would leave this one for dead. The room was immaculately clean, the staff pleasant and helpful and the shower fantastic. That's where my compliments end. The room was very small and I don't like double beds on wheels without a bed head that move about. There is no wifi in the rooms only in the adjoining restaurant. I did not visit the restaurant because its menu is priced sky high. The motel is not in the centre of town as advertised but some 500 metre walks to anything interesting except the brothel at the rear. You can do a lot better.

Room Tip: Make sure you study the map for the location of attractions .

Hi John,

Thank you for your comments. It always nice to pass on good feedback to our staff.

Our property has received a 4 star rating for our newer business class rooms and a 3.5 star rating for our self-contained apartments. However, we have recently completed a renovation of our apartments, with new bathrooms and new furnishings in the bedrooms.

At the moment we do not have Wi-Fi in the rooms, however this will be installed in the coming months. We have wired internet in all of the rooms and free Wi-Fi in the lobby and Blue Monkey restaurant.

The property is less than 500m to the post-office and woolworths shopping complex and located close to the Visitor information centre.

Regards,

William Brooks

Just about every thing was excellent, good reception, excellent rooms and facilities. One short coming, they could stretch to biscuits to go with the tea and coffee. Also, most of the facilities in this town usually have a well stocked bar fridge.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good.

When we first arrived we thought it was a fairy standard 70's motel. It was but has been expanded and is now quite a large of complex of motel rooms no doubt catering to the mining industry.

Our rooms a bit of walk from the reception. Small but clean with comfy bed and good shower. The location is couple of blocks from the Tourist information and a bit further to the main hotels but all in walking distance. It is next door to the Hay St brothels if that's your thing!

The big disappointment was the breakfast. A limited choice of cereal and toast with instant coffee.

Next time I would try somewhere else but you could do worse.

Thank you for your review. The property underwent a major expansion in 2010, with addition of our business class rooms and suites. All of our rooms are located on ground level, conveniently close to parking.

Like most businesses in Kalgoorlie, we do cater to the mining industry, however, we have a strong focus on tourist and leisure guests who appreciate our great central location and friendly staff.

For those that want something light we have a continental breakfast selection at The Blue Monkey restaurant. There is also a great range of a la carte dishes (e.g. Eggs Benedict, Pancakes etc) and it is open from 5am – 10am daily and from 6pm for dinner.

William Brooks

Hi JulesD,

Thank you for your review. It's good to hear you found our property a nice place to stay.

Upon check-in we take a pre-authorisation on your credit card for the total amount of your stay plus an amount of $50. A pre-authorisation is a temporary hold of a specific amount of the available balance on a credit or debit card. The pre-authorisation is not a charge and no funds
were debited from your account. The $50 is to cover any additional charges that you may have incurred during your stay such as room service from the Blue Monkey restaurant. When your bill was finalised this amount was automatically released.

If you have any queries about this please contact me on 08 9091 3333.

Stayed here overnight on our way to Perth from the east. I booked online with breakfast included as a special but there was no mention of this at check in. To be honest I was so tired I couldn't be bothered arguing but it didn't give me a good first impression.

The room was pretty small but functional enough to cater for our intended one night stay and sleep after a long day's drive from the border. The big screen tv worked well and the shower was brilliant. The fridge made such hideous noises, I had to get up and turn it off during the night. Other than that it was very quiet and I got a good night's sleep.

There was nothing particularly wrong with this motel but it lacks any real charm. Felt very cold and didn't leave me with any desires to stay again, not to mention it's priced like you're a miner with a fistful of cash.

Hi Neil,

Thanks for taking the time to share your experience. I'm glad you had a good nights sleep in one of our comfortable beds.

I have had a look at your reservation and your room was booked with our June special with free continental breakfast at the Blue Monkey Restaurant. I apologise for the front desk staff member not informing you about this upon check in. This was due to an error on our end. Don't hesitate to ask if you have a queries as the front desk staff could have quickly resolved this for you.

We hope that you will choose us again when travelling to Kalgoorlie.

William Brooks

Only got to stay here one night but have to say I would happily stay longer. Stayed in a two bedroom apartment and it was very modern, clean and spacious. Shower was wonderful. Not cheap but then nothing in Kalgoorlie is. I wish we had eaten at the restaurant because I was told by an ex-local, after our trip, what wonderful food it has.

Thanks for your review of our Business Class Suite. We have a range of rooms that can suit most travellers and budgets. The Business Class Suites are our largest room, with two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a fully self-contained kitchen. As you mentioned they are quite modern and spacious and we find they are great for families.
