Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My school stayed here for a 2-night trip, I already saw the review not expecting much. When we first arrived at our rooms we thought it was ok, but after looking at other rooms our one was probably the smallest & lowest in quality. The walls were rough, it cut my friend's finger. The shower had mold and cobwebs. The room had a very damp smell, some beds were sagging, and the wooden slats/supports for the bed had staplers or a metal screw sticking out of them, which scratched me. The shower temperature was great but didn't have amenities like a kettle, slippers, comb, or dryer but for other rooms this was present. The food on the first night was not great at all, most of the rice was not cooked and crunchy. The curry/stew that came with it was a watery sauce with not much flavor. The ' veggies ' were frozen like the ones from the supermarket and not a pinch of salt was added. Breakfast was some well-cooked sausages but the good thing about breakfast stopped there, the toast was not very toasted, the hashbrown was just the matter on the outside no filling, my friends and other students had the same issue this happened tomorrow as well but the sausage was bacon which was not very charred and was in a pool of watery oil, I asked for 2 hashbrowns but they were declining, I kinda starved that day after not having a good breakfast. Dinner that night was tacos. I saw my friends getting minimal filling so I asked for extra filling, but they didn't add it. There was a toppings bar with guacamole, it was just avocado mashed up with little to no seasoning. Some staff was nice but 1 or 2 was just average. If you are coming here are some tips for you:
1:Bring your own pillow/pillowcase
2:Bring your own bedsheets, the ones here are damp and dirty
3:Bring Glen 20 or wet wipes to clean down surfaces
4:Bring your own soap, the one they provide is a small disc or no soap
5:Bring a lot of water bottles the water refill here tastes questionable.
6: Bring some snacks because you might not like the food or give to little food

Well if you're going to stay here for camp, just be aware of some issues you may experience

Thank you for the stay, GCTR

I went on a school trip here, i had a good time here and it wasn’t as bad as the other reviews said, but here is some things i wanted to say. The hashbrowns tasted like fish, i was happy to have a bit of it but it was horrible. The walls are sharp, the walls are lumpy and two of my friends bled because they hit their foot on the wall! Our window frame was broken for the first 2 nights, making the room next door hear everything we say, and even when we whispered the room next door complained about the noise! Luckily my friend budged the window back in place, but overwise it needed to be fixed. The shower was freezing! And it was really hard to make it turn warm. During dinner one of the cooks there served a good amount of food, but the other one served a VERY small portion! But it was a cool experience, one of the nights we had butter chicken and it tasted really good, but if u go here, being warm socks, its freezing in canberra.

Went here for school camp.....heaps of places to visit nearby..rooms are old but ours was clean. Breakfast was fantastic for the 3 days we were there. Fast and hot. Dinner was nice but too loud and too many kids running around...was a nice camp for our small school and teachers. Would go again.

I stayed here for camp and i read the reviews before i went and most were very bad. The rooms were small and old fashioned and there was a spider lurking in the bathroom and my friend didn't want to shower because it was freezing. the food basic and ok. but dinner was better then brekie. i had to bring my own pillow case because i didnt want toput my head on the motels pillow and the were so dirty.I also thought the air con was gonna explode because it was very noisy.i was on the top bunk and i felt sorry for the person underneath me because it was very creaky and i thought it was gonna break soooooo ppplllllssss dont stay here youll regret it.

Don’t ever go here, the mattresses on the bunk beds were so thin you could feel the wood under it, the jelly is drugged, the curry they serve tastes like absolute dog crap. Wouldn’t ever go here ever again, the bathroom stunk and the rooms in general were festy. Worse school camp I will ever go on and I wish I could go back in time so I didn’t have to go. After the 3 days it looked like I went through hell and back. The dining room was ok just so loud and the other schools were annoying. DONT EAT THE JELLY, so many people got sick from it I can’t even count how many. All the food was low quality and the portions they served weren’t good, I starved for like 3 days straight. Not worth the money at all just don’t come here at all unless you want to encounter hell, worst hotel/motel I’ve ever stayed at. Everything is dusty and old I rate this place a -3/10.

This is probably the best school camp I’ve ever gone on. The room I was staying was so clean, and I so happy I got to stay there for school camp with all of my friends. The food was also really good but after I ate the jelly I felt like I was gonna pass out. The ice cream was really good tho! The bunk bed were a bit creaky but very comfortable, it was really nice the pillow were so fluffy. I do appreciate how the toilet, sink and shower separate rooms but I do not appreciate the random window at the front door. Though, the bathrooms in the dining hall were disgusting I felt I was gonna throw up, there was missing toilet paper and the drawer was wide open there was a spider crawling over what I think was a water tank, The AC was broken in our room so I hope you are able to fix most of the stuff there and also the mini frigde, was not working most of the things in my room were fine except for the AC and the frigde.
Other then that this motel was absolutely brilliant.
I appreciate all of the staff for this and this trip was just amazing.

Poor standard of cleaning, cobwebs in bathroom and toilet. Beds not well made. Shower and toilet areas inadequate. I wouldn’t suggest it to family or friends. Perhaps we were in older rooms that might need some repairs and renovations

Be very careful of this place - it bites. I went here for school camp. Now, on the outside, this place looks like a haven but if you proceed to enter a room, you will be extremely befuddled by the lack of sanitary, electricity, comfort and fashion. There were several holes in the ceilings and walls, some hidden with sticky tape and others not. One of the bunkbeds broke during my stay as well. The food was pretty mid and the rooms were atrocious.

I loved this place during school camp, it was absolutely amazing! me and my friends has a blast! ( literally i laughed so hard that the next door neighbours heard me, aka my cousins cabin haha.. ) I wish i could go back and spend more time there, the staff members are so nice and helpful, The foods are worth the trip. They let you have seconds! There was no bugs in my cabin, the shower worked perfect fine, and also the tv worked! We watched teenaged mutant ninja turtles, and my fan favourite is total dramarama! i told my friends that i was going to sleep in the middle of watching tv, but then they said total drama was on, so i leaped out of bed ( my bed was the top bunk ) and then i sat on the floor watching an amazing episode of tdr! I don’t get why people are calling this place “dirty” or “bad” this place held so much fun times! I slept fine and well with my cabin mates! the bed were all perfectly fine and stable but i think i remember my friend jumped on the singular bed and it started to creak but that’s her fault 😋😋 The random large window near one of the bunk beds and also the singular bed actually creeped me out tbh.. we locked our friend in the closet but unfortunately she escaped, i snored so loudly that my cabin mates couldn’t sleep, The ac and the mini fridge didn’t work but that was fine, i loved this place! but the ac and the fridge didn’t work but i don’t care, i had a amazing time! ALL MY THANK YOUS TO THE STAFF! XX

I loved the rice 10/10 it made my mouth water. the rest of the food was also beautiful but not as good as the moth watering rice cooked by the amazing chef Jake. I love you Jake and I will definitely be coming back. Thank you gold creek tourist resort.
