It's nothing special.
Reserved the room via the web page as we knew travelling home after a function would be difficult ..
At check in they double charge your credit card and then tell you one charge gets returned to the card in 4 days ??? WHAT ??? it's some sort of BOND on the room ! Unheard of if there is no mini bar and not mentioned when booking .. FAIL
Room 27 - double bed , single bed , small ensuite shower and toilet - all very clean but very very worn out...
The taps leak all over the basin and the shower water runs out onto the floor ..
Complimentary tea and coffee
Haha the milk is frozen and when I defrosted it - curdled in my tea .. oh well there is a BP service station over the highway for goodies if you can brave the ongoing onslaught of traffic or walk the distance to the traffic lights and go to maccas or hungry jacks ..there is nothing else close by.
The motor inn offers the usual expensive hotel breakfasts if you pre order the night before . No restaurant on site.
You don't hear the highway traffic BUT the walls are paper thin and the large glass window is a 'wall' of sorts onto the shared walkway and a large car park - IT'S SUPER NOISY - we arrived late afternoon and the young guests from a rugby league tour group were kicking footballs onto the window of our room .. later that night , when we returned from our function held at a local club , we heard every word of the conversations in the rooms either side ; in the morning - it was like main st 7am - every movement and conversation could be heard , both from their rooms and outside - I felt I knew them intimately and couldn't wait for their departure !
The desk staff are pleasant but offer little else - there was no intervention by them to improve the behaviour of their guests as I described yet they witnessed all if it ...
Taxi to own bed versus $$ spent for convenience following function ... think I will taxi next time .
