Though well appointed the ancient bed had no support and ver bouncy so leaving with stiff backs which not ideal when paying $225 a night. The spa was nice . The TV small and to the left of the bed up high was another odd point. Kitchen balcony and room space good therefore having very old mattresses let’s it down!

Had high expectations based on reviews , website etc I realise new owners can’t fix the following however as a Corp traveller you look for the simple things to be 100% the following were not : Single glazed , so weepy windows in morning , noisy and being right on main road you do here a fair amount. A number of big cracks in bathroom . The wood work on bathroom door at the bottom was water damaged and wear and tear on woodwork throughout the room was evident . The sheer Curtians had rips , gap at bottom of red faded Curtians let’s light in . Patch in carpet , carpet floor hard with industrial polyester carpet - no good for yoga no comfort . Heat pump needed a good clean visible dust on cover and rather ineffective at heating - very old unit . TV was too small older style - however did enjoy the sky channels . Some marks on the top sheet of bed . Red not sure what albeit small white sheets need to be spotless or toss them out . Bed was low to ground not overly comfortable flat pillows . Dated decor . Had a ground floor unit looked out to car -upstairs facing street would be better than looking at carpark . More secure too. Iron board was hopeless see pictures . As was dated hairdryer. Shower was dreadful no pressure ran hot and cold .. Kitchen bibs had bad wear marks . Could not wait to check out . Checking in was friendly . However I was not informed they are not offering breakfast other motels stayed at this week were . On check out Reported all of the above - response lacked understanding and devoid of empathy. Almost argumentative on the cracks in tiles as example - I produced a list of feedback . Explaining that if this doesn’t occur and they can improve they may loose business was trying help . Pushed for a discount paid $165 Was offered begrudgingly $10 which was something . The young lady said I could have checked out and not stayed as they were full I didn’t think that would be fair to them of course I did t know this at the time - usually once you have paid that’s it . Of course some of the issues I encountered didn’t show up to later such as the heater and dated microwave that sounded like it would blow up . Along with a however pressure encountered in morning . The motel was not good and customer service not much better So I will never return and take my personal and business travel elsewhere .

Cornwall motor lodge is the place we always stay at.Our last stay on sat 18th sept was not as nice as usual our pull up curtain had broken cords on it so was very hard to get up or down,only 1 bathrobe for the spa bath we had to wait for milk and there had been a leak in the bathroom ceilling that didnt look very nice (cracks in the corner of ceilling and a hole in the top skirting board)carpet had bad wear marks in places.Bit of a shame because weve been comming here for years.I think they may have new owners as this was the 1st time weve ever had to pay a $200 bond!!

The Cornwall Motor Lodge in Palmerton North is beautiful. Huge rooms. Extremely clean and well presented. The spa bath is an added bonus. So central with restaurants right across the road. Will definitely stay again.
