Could not check into reception as a remodelled Valiant Regal car of the 1970's variety was blocking the driveway. He eventually moved into another shaded area and we were instructed to park outside our room which was towards the end of the block. An altercation took place between my friend and the owner of the Valiant as he had apparently been waiting for 15 minutes for a spot in the shade. Once he was settled in the shade he proceeded to vacuum his car. To my knowledge he was not a guest but a friend of the night duty manager. We went into the room and I was dismayed to see the state it was in. It was musty, the quilt on the bed had seen better days, several times, and it had holes in it. Added to this was the charming support of the TV cabinet being a wooden stick. The glasses in the fridge were Vegemite jars. There was no soap in the dispenser in the bathroom, we were only given 2 towels and no bath mat or hand towel and the room was not clean. After we were subjected to 15 minutes of Mr Valiant Regal revving his car in the driveway outside our room, we asked if we could be moved. There was only one other room available (apparently) and we decided to accept their offer as it was on the opposite side of the building. When we went looking for milk in the fridge there was none and as if that wasn't enough we had no kettle to make a cuppa anyway. We had to borrow the one from the kitchen with instructions to please return it in the morning. Teaspoons were absent but we did have two paddle pop sticks available to stir our tea. I would rather have checked out, but it was too late to find somewhere else to stay. To even equate this place with the hospitality industry is an insult to all those who really try to provide good clean accommodation. Staying with your worst in-laws would be an improvement.
