We arrived after a 450 kilometer drive.
I paid for the stay using the EFTPOS facility. Because of not using a credit card I incurred a $100.00 deposit which is used to ensure against losses from the mini bar and other expenses. It cost $175.00 for the night for a Motel Room not as suggested by the establishments name, a Hotel Room.
I understand the need for the deposit and accepted it but not ten minutes after arriving at our room, an employee knocked on the door and after being admitted, removed all the contents of the mini bar. He stated that the front office had requested that he do so. According to the mini bar price list there was a little over $200.00 worth of product in the fridge.
As stated I understood the need for a deposit but cannot accept the removal of the goods from the mini bar and see it as nothing less than an insult and a slur against my integrity. If as mentioned by the cold mannered girl in the office it is company policy then I would suggest a review because until then I will strongly recommend people stay elsewhere.
