“Worst stay during our six weeks in Australia”
Reviewed 16 January 2013

Owner has a horrible attitude and she makes you feel like a big nuisance. Cabins were dirty, plastic over chairs inside and rusty chairs outside. No oven and other kitchen appliances like promised. We got out of there as fast as we could and took our loss of two days payment. Never ever again. Must be a different owner, because it was not the one on the photo. Definitely not recommend this place.

Room Tip: Run while you can!

I am sorry that you felt that way I think we were very busy at that time and didn't give you immediate attention. Our staff have had more training since then.

I wasn't expecting much when booking but required a place to stay that accommodated children, and had undercover parking.
Once checked in it was apparent how neglected and run down this hotel was. Windows were cracked and broken, one was even plugged up with paper to stop the bugs coming through. The room lacked security screens and doors, the shower screen was cracked and leaking, and the bathroom itself was patched up in places that had broken before. The shower taps were so low I had to get my husband to turn it on as I am 8 months pregnant.

The box air conditioner was plugged in to one of the few power points via an unsecured extension lead that was a safety hazard to my toddler, I felt the cracked and broken windows are too a safety hazard. I did not feel safe behind the flimsy paper door even when it was locked.

I would not stay here again, I do not recommend this hotel, the self rating should not be 3 nor is it worth the 100 per night.

Staying here was a terrible end to a great holiday.

Room Tip: Do yourself a favour pay more money and stay somewhere else.

Location and rooms quite ok, (larger apartments). Located on a camping area. No salt/pepper available and the owner was not available while checkout, there was a note to call on the mobile, which is not a good idea without local mobile contract.
