“Sabai Sabai Traditional Thai Massage - 54 McKenzie St Wonthaggi. 3995”
Reviewed December 21, 2013

Sabai Sabai is a small Thai Massage business 100 mtrs walk from Wonthaggi Motel. Holiday makers and travelers who stay there often tell us what a lovely place it is. The rooms are spotless clean and staff are very friendly.
Clearly, a very popular Motel in Wonthaggi.
Based on the positive feedback we regularly hear, we recommend the Wonthaggi Motel to all our customers looking for a place to stay.

I thoroughly recommend this motel. Friendly owners and great rooms. Big, spacious and modern. Huge bathroom for a hotel room with spa and flat screen TV. Very comfortable and easy access to surrounding areas such as Wilson's Pro and shops. Not sure how anyone could write negative comments , our stay was much better than any other country hotel I've stayed in and I travel a lot. Thanks for making our stay so pleasant.:)

If your a business person or traveller that need the Internet to stay in contact with work, friends and family by email etc as these days EVERYONE does bypass this place as its cost to use their Internet is $6 per hour.
In this day and age to even charge for such a service is outrageous when the Internet is so cheap.
Rooms were clean and friendly service but had to go to McDonalds to do emails etc.
Careful you don't hit your head on the very low bulk head above the bed with old style wall heater.

Dear Sir,

Thank you for your comments.

It was explained to you that the WiFi service was with Tomizone not the Motel and your choice as to use of their service or not.

Having said that we have now introduced a Free WiFi service of our own to prevent these kind of misconceptions occurring again.

Once again I thank you for your comments.

we arrived in the freezing cold and got rooms on spec., specifying how many adults. We could have had 2 rooms, but they sold us 3. When I pointed out the error the attitude was tough luck, I'm doing nothing for you.

Dear Sir,

Thank you for your comments.

We all make life choices, in this case you were very specific in that you required 3 rooms, 1 for two persons another for 2 persons and a 3rd for 1 person.

This is exactly what you were given keys to.

I realise that one of those rooms was a large family room hence probably why you decided to change your mind, however, we do not know what occurred in the room that you wanted to give back whilst you were in it. Hence we were not prepared to use it again prior to it being cleaned.

I am sure you can fully understand that even though you did not want to on the night.

Could I respectfully suggest that in future you ask to see the accommodation offered prior to taking a key, this, I think would prevent what happened on this particular night. We are always happy to show our rooms to prospective clients.

In relation to management attitude, I believe it is always prudent to speak to people in a manner in which you would like to be spoken to in a similar situation.

Once again, I thank you for your comments.

I thoroughly recommend this motel. I booked by phone on a wet and windy winter night and when I arrived 45 minutes later the friendly owner had put the heater on in my room and let me know the score in the 3rd test at Old Trafford. If you don't like cramped bathrooms this is the place! The shower is open and spacious and with the basin and mirror in the kitchen area, when your companion(s) are preening or brushing their teeth the toilet's free! Great design, very clean and comfortable. Do yourself a favour.

Room Tip: Tell them Geoff sent you.

First place we found when looking for somewhere to stay in Wonthaggi. It is very central and easy walking distance to the main streets. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Ours just a standard room and I thought $130 was a tad expensive, given there isn't even a sachet of shampoo. Bathroom is a large wet room which would be very suitable for wheelchair access. Obviously they have had problems with absconders because I felt the grilling at reception when we arrived was also a bit off putting. Could have been a bit friendlier but still securing the credit card, rego details etc

Room Tip: Back of motel to avoid road noise
