As I expected staying in Collingwood was always going to be a challenge for quality accommodation but we selected the Station House Motel based on it have a two bedroom unit available. The price was very cheap but it was the same for all accommodation in town.
The unit was very basic and reflected the age of the establishment. I would have been satisfied by the unit were it not for the fact that the shower had the water restricted to the point where it was basically worthless for purpose of washing properly. I cannot express my pleasure when I left the Station House Motel and travelled to my Hotel in Darwin to be able to get a proper show as soon as I got into the hotel.
I will never stay at the Station House Motel again even if I was offered the accommodation free. On a more positive note I have to say the Darren & Sylvie with their young family are lovely people and I am sure want to do the right thing by their guests. All that needs to be done would be to remove the water restrictor in the shower. Clearly the updating of the accommodation is driven by the number of guests staying at the motel which is likely to be a long term objective.
