“Ned Kelly was a gentleman compared to this motels owner”
Reviewed 13 January 2012

Self rated at four stars-I don't think so, perhaps two and a half.
It's a pity the owners don't maintain their asset and leave the managers to handle the irate
customers. Things just didn't work, the alarm clock, air conditioner which keeps you up all night with the noise. As there are no ceiling fans or security screens it is the only option?
Continental breakfast is a small box of cerial and a couple of pieces of dry bread which have
been sitting out all day, on this bread once toasted you put your butter which has been
previously melted and reset- one bight and into the bin.
Unless this is the last motel you can find with a vacancy drive on.

Nothing and I do mean nothing out of the hat with this place, bland rooms, less than modern decor, receptionist with a "ho hum" attitude. However one simply gets what one pays for!One can not expect luxury at this place, what you will get is a basic room which has been "dollied" up but upon closer inspection it is simply second or third rate. The staff in the office appeared to be "put out" when dealing with us, it was as if it was a case of too much trouble. There was a film of grime on the windowsill and the air conditioner has seen much better days. It was handy having the service station next door but the prices and once again the attitude of the staff left a lot to be desired. In all honesty I would suggest driving a bit further into Hervey Bay and staying there.

We stayed in may, we were on a tight budget but found staff to be lovely - romm was tidy, not brand new but very comfortable. For what we paid I thought it was great!

The room was not clean. Layer of black grease in grill tray, dirty microwave, pubic hairs in shower, the floor made our feet black. Water basin tap heads fell off. Receptionist was nasty, made to feel very uncomfortable by her. Pool was filthy, residents were loud and there was domestic abuse at 3AM making it hard to sleep. Where were the 'surrounding tropical gardens'? Worst holiday experience of our lives. Would not wish the torture upon anyone. Don't stay here.
