We booked last minute and unfortunately didn’t read the reviews on this place. Luckily we stayed there for less than 12 hours in total - just an overnight stay before an early hospital admission at southern cross. First impressions weren’t great. The lady at reception wasn’t particularly friendly. Didn’t even offer a wifi password. The actual room had everything we needed for our very short stay but was very outdated. The windows were impossible to close properly. Obviously hadn’t been cleaned properly as there were 3 empty soft drink bottles left under the bed from previous occupants! It was very dusty which irritated my lungs. The beds were terribly uncomfortable. Lots of noise from other rooms made it hard to sleep. Didn’t expect much for the price but expected better.

Looked very good in photos, took my own photos and a lot different, could hear upstairs using and flushing the toilet - also arguing and shouting. Shower walls coming away, nearly cut off my fingers trying to close the window. closet was a curtain that also covered the open fuse box. Needs to be brought back to how the photos are.
Was bitten to pieces.

My room was very dusty,I had other people's hair all through the inside of my duvet and folded into the clean towels given to me. Finally I had a few unwelcome guest, I had fleas in my bedding and through my clothes and I was left with multiple bites.
This place needs a over haul!!!!!!Proper cleaning of the basics isnt their priority.

Safe yourself some grief, and make bookings elsewhere. The room I was given absolutely stunk of mould, a smell which became alarmingly worse when I used the stovetop. Nigh upon all the dishes were dirty upon my arrival. The shower was full of mould and had used chewing gum in the soap holder. Finding fleas in bedding was the last straw. After raising my concerns with motel management I was called a liar.

Photo looks ok, but actual units are small, shabby, with many up a narrow staircase. We had booked well in advance, mentioning our dog, but were stuffed into a small room upstairs. Room was clean and beds ok, but all very pokey and shabby. A lamp and a light did not work. We would never return.
