Never having been to Whyalla I was quite looking forward to my stay. I liked the town, but this motel is pretty ordinary and a long way from the centre of town or any attractions. Upon arriving I was greeted by a (male) receptionist who had barely more than 2 words to say and I'm sure would rather grunt than actually speak. The adjacent room had a number of workmen in it who appeared to be having a meeting and I was overwhelmed by all the swearing and cussing going on.
There is a sign in the room that indicates that the rooms are being refurbished, but all I could see that was done was that the bathroom had been re-tiled. All the surrounds were still unfinished. I think there was new furniture in the room, but dark wooden furniture in an already dark room doesn't increase the attractiveness much! As a business traveller I have to work at night - you can't see! There is a desk with no desk lamp, and the overhead lights are virtually useless in lighting the desk, so if you have to work at night, good luck. The cupboard isn't big enough for the fridge and the doors bang together when you try to open the fridge.
Outside is very unappealing and the gardens are unattended and in a poor state. The place looks and feels unloved!
