Sandpiper Motel
Ranked #3 of 5 Hotels in Ulladulla
Reviewed 3 January 2012

Firstly, Excellent impressions were made by the owner Cathy Taylor who provided a warm and welcoming experience. This was very quickly let down by the stained towels, horrid air conditioner, hard as nails bed, uncleaned state of the room and a general odour. Understood, for what we were paying, it wasn't meant to be the hilton on the south coast, but a 5 minute tidy could have made a big difference. Next, the TV wasn't tuned to any station and we were charged extra people fee's simply by having people in our room past 9pm. Room servicing missed clean towels and didn't fill up the toilet paper. We were also charged more $56 for makeup on the towels. It didn't occur however to Cathy that the towels were already pathetically stained. I'd suggest spend your money else where, with the money from additional fees we could have had a much more pleasant experience. Very Disappointing Indeed.

SandpiperUlladulla, Owner at Sandpiper Motel, responded to this reviewResponded 17 March 2012

Mr dissapointed who is not prepared to say his name is a guest who along with his female companions stained our towels with make up (yes he also participated in red lipstick kisses on our white towels and mascara and liquid foundation- impossible to remove without the use of expensive stain removers), they had clothes and food thrown all over the room making it impossible to service. He was asked to pay for towels which he giggled about, agreed and gave credit card for payment then booked an additional 2 night stay as they liked the area. His motive for writing this review ? unknown but we are not deserving of this review. We do not allow visitors ?? or smuggled unpaying extas !! to rooms after 9pm in regard for the comfort of other guests. Any discerning travellor reading this review would most likely read between the lines and appreciate our stance. We did not receive a single complaint from this travellor or his companions during their stay. Most travellors would ask if they were unable to work the TV or radio etc and we are always happy to assist. Now that I have been made aware of Trip Advisor I thank those happy guests who brought it to my attention and Thank trip advisor for being probably the only forum in which business owners can respond to reviews. My name is Cathy Taylor and I welcome all feedback from previous guests.
