Don't book.

Please do not book a room in this motel we had the unfortunate experience of staying here last Saturday the 26th of August. It is like stepping back into the 70's and that looks like when the last maintenance would have been. First of all the lady at the desk argued that we had only booked a single room on line lucky we could bring up confirmation on phone a twin room double bed and a single in fact probably not so lucky should have moved on then. The sheets are thread bare and the beds as old as the hills. The towels also thread bare and no flannels. The water trickles out of the shower.
In one review they mentioned the oven sitting out the back of the unit and quess what it is still there that review was in May. I developed a severe allergy that night and since then have had swollen eyes and wheeziness so bad that I have had to take time off work. This place needs to be gutted and rebuilt to a proper standard. Love the broken tired cane chairs out side each room come on smarten your act up you charge enough for a run down health hazard.

This is my second visit to Park Lodge - 1st being a few years ago and I remembered it being very basic, but acceptable.

This visit, a two years on, it was a shame to see that the owners obviously do not care for their property - the pool and children playground were still not in working order - should be removed! The grounds were STILL over grown.

The units that we stayed in were outdated and seemed unclean. We had asked for a unit with a full kitchen, but when we arrived, the oven had been taken out (probably a fair while ago) and was part of the patio furniture. In it's place was a cheap two hob stove top - not acceptable.

I'll add this to my list of stay aways.

Room tip: Choose another motel if you really want a good room!

Motel is dated and very small. It was clean but we were very disappointed with it overall. The kitchen area is minimalistic and no toaster provided. Nowhere to wash dishes. Did not like having to fill kettle from bathroom sink especially with such a tiny bathroom . Hot water supply runs at a trickle. Towels more the size of hand towels. No face washcloths supplied. As is on SH3 we were kept awake by traffic noise.

Had to book this on a short notice as others had no vacancy. This motel is just horrible. Dirty, old, noisy! Bedding looks like it wasn't washed at least a month and bed spreads were probably never washed. I could's sleep and had to get outside few times to get fresh air as I had problems breathing , that's how dirty and dusty it was! Stay away from this place.
