We checked in about 6.30pm after a very long day of traveling from Port McQuarie. It was dark and the motel looked quite presentable from the road, advertising a restaurant. We were advised after booking that the restaurant was closed. We were given a room down the back of the property and it was quiet with no road noise. The room's decor was dated and reasonably expensive for what you got or didn't get. There was a toaster in the room but no plates or cutlery. On request they did supply us with plates, spoons and a knife.There was also a jug but to fill it up you had to use the shower as it would not fit under the basin tap. Superficially the room looked clean but there was soap scum in the shower, mildew on the bathroom window and the bathroom extractor fan had a major build up of grime on its surface. There were cobwebs aplenty. The air conditioner was so noisy it could not be used for long. When I returned the key there was no thank you or have a good day. We couldn't wait to leave.
