Extremely rude and seem to take pleasure in putting people down. You booking with this accommodation means helping people like this thrive in the hospitality business. Plenty of other options out there!

I was very disappointed with the cleanliness of the room. My grandchildren were walking on the carpet in bare feet and the soles of their feet were as black as charcoal. We all had to make sure we kept shoes on the whole entire time we stayed in the room. The shower was mouldy,

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. Although we are disappointed that you did not feel the need to speak to us regarding your concerns during your stay and have instead chosen to approach it in a public forum. Firstly, we get our carpets cleaned every 4-6 months and more often as needed. We will be looking into this to day as we pride ourselves on the cleanliness of our rooms. We have checked the bathroom you stayed in and are unable to find any evidence of mould. In fact, that bathroom had just had the silicon replaced in it two weeks prior to your stay. The photos of our property on the website you are talking about were taken on our phones. They have not been enhanced or changed in any way. They are actual photos of our rooms and property. We DO NOT have any pornographic channels on our Foxtel subscription as we subscribe to the standard motel package which includes all sport and movie channels. We are unable to control the content of television shows that are aired on free to air or pay television stations. Your suggestion that we deliberately have this material aired on our televisions is insulting. Our mini bar ranges from $2.50 to $4.00. This is by no means over priced or outrageous and our mini bar gets utilised by our customers regularly due to its convenience and low prices. While we understand that you were not happy with your stay we also understand that we can not please everyone. We enjoy an occupancy rate of between 80 and 90 percent which is well above industry standard. We are confident that we are doing something right and pride ourselves on our customer service and cleanliness. We have many return guests and many people that come and stay at Ploughmans Motor Inn because of recommendations from other guests that have stayed with us in the past. We are proud of our small family run business and look forward to welcoming many more happy customers in the future.

We came as a group which pretty much booked out the Inn. Rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. We sat out at a table next to pool and had drinks before going out for dinner and it was lovely. Even outside areas were neat & clean.

Thank you for taking the time to review Ploughmans Motor Inn. We are so happy that your group enjoyed your stay and got to enjoy some drinks by our pool. We really pride ourselves on our cleanliness so to hear that you noticed this both inside and outside the rooms pleases us greatly. Many of our guests love our spacious rooms, it is always nice when you have rooms to spread out. We would love to welcome you all back next time you come to Horsham and hope to see you again soon.

Traveling between Adelaide, SA and Bright, Victoria is approx. the halfway-mark town of Horsham, Victoria. If traveling to the Victorian snowfields from Adelaide it is an ideal overnight stay location along the way, as it is about halfway point. Ploughmans Motor Inn is a lovely
