Like many towns and cities with long main streets, Bundaberg's Takalvan Street presents problems for the traveller. If you're able to Google Streetview then we'd suggest you do so. Alexandras is a fair way out of the CBD and so walking anywhere is not really an option.
The major drawback is that it is a fairly old motel complex and needs a refurbishment. We had a room with a spa - which was very good after a long day's travel - but this seemed to be the only recent work. One of the bedside lights didn't work and the feeling was of a place nearing the end of its life. Particularly annoying was the fact that graffiti on the back of the door (yes, we do know who Guy Sebastian us) seems to have been retained only because it was done by a minor celebrity - but what's the point?
Bed was okay. Air con was ok. Bathroom had an odd smell of stale water.
The restaurant is closed Sundays and so we couldn't comment on the food as we left early the next morning.
We're sure that there are better places in the area and closer to the CBD.
