Room Tip: tell owners if you are travelling with not as mobile loved ones and they will accomadate you with no...

There was no trip advisor reviews to guide me when I booked this so I took a gamble and booked two rooms at this motel for and overnight stop.

The very first issue was we booked one of the rooms with two separate beds (paying extra for the privilege) and unfortunately there was only a single queen in both rooms. The sofa may have been a sofa bed but there was no bedding for it in any obvious place. Reception was closed was when we arrived so we were stuck.

Luckily my elderly mother and sister were ok to share a bed and I took the other room.

As for my room, the first impressions were not good. The room had an unpleasant damp like seem, was basic painted brick wall and the decoration was definitely not to my taste. I have posted plenty of photos so please make up your own mind.

The first impressions only got worse when I discovered the bugs, I am not a bug expert but I have unpleasant suspicion as to what they were. The bugs on show were not particularly afraid of humans and were happy to pose for photos.

The mattress also felt cheap and I could feel the springs, combined with the unpleasant smell it took several hours for me to sleep.

In the morning when leaving, I found the grounds to be quite pleasant and there were several Kangaroos jumping around within the grounds of the property.

We have a variety of rooms all with different decor. I'm sorry that the decor of this room was not to your liking.
I have checked my phone records, and note that on the afternoon of your stay with us, I did call you to double check your requirements, and was advised that we would not need to put an extra bed into the room and that your mother and sister were happy to share a bed. The reason for the difference of price, is that we charge less for a single. I have however refunded $11.00 for the double room and now charged at the same rate as the single.
Our reception closes at 10.00 pm, but as the weather was so bad that evening I did keep it open until 11.30 pm to make sure all our guests arrived safely.
I'm sorry you felt the bed was uncomfortable, all queen beds in our motel have a high quality mattress topper for extra comfort.
The bug you have referred to and taken photos of, is in fact a cockroach, and try as we might, when the weather is humid, and the fact that we are on a rural property with tropical gardens, makes it impossible for us to totally eradicate, though is something we are constantly checking for.
We do our best to provide our guests with high quality service, rooms furnished with kitchenettes, crockery, cutlery, microwaves and toasters to help with their individual needs and requirements, not just the basics normally found in motel rooms.
A dissapointing review, but the first in eleven years.
