we paid 900 for 9 days stay. Got told it was a big discount in which was the first lie. Nothing on there lists for the rooms exist. Theres no microwave, no pay TV, dodgy TV signals, told not to use air conditioning, no minimal, no soundproofing, no pool(its empty and vile, told I couldn't use there laundromat unless I paid more money. Given only one night of towels and coffee and milk pouches. Told if we wanted more towels that we needed to pay for them. We went to clean the room ourselves and emptied rubbish into there big bins outside. Just for them to rush over and lock it up. Now there's no bins. Nothing on the amenities lists exist and even one guy was crying as he couldn't get them to acknowledge him for his deposit back. The wife can't speak English, only Chinese and wasn't very welcoming at all. For 900 we were left in a room with no amenities as promised and a big food bill every day . My poor son was told if he wanted the wifi that he needed to go sit outside somewhere as the wifi didn't work in the units. They play dumb and act like there doing you a deal with a broken down place with everything broken and ripping people off badly. I warn people to not go near there. They have no intentions on fixing property or making there amenities list true. Im absolutely appalled at our treatment. As a pensioner, I was totally ripped off and not one thing existed there. I plan on taking them to small claims. Don't go there. below is horrible tv reception, only normal channels. And only jug and toaster given. No mini fridge, littleand brokenfreezer. Hopeless, no clean towels. Same ones for over a week that I went and bought some. at all. Be warned

The description stated the motel was recently renovated! I have never stayed in the more disgusting place in my life! The place is a pig sty ,filthy ,everything in the room was filthy! In the whole time we were there not once(8 days!) the bed linen was changed!.We had to ask for a replacement kettle as the one in the room was so dirty, we couldn't touch it! The same with toaster & fridge! The floors have not been washed for days! The vent in the shower was just an open hole! Lucky for us, there were no rats or mice falling through! There are some permanent residents living on the property & ongoing fights,continuous visits by strange characters, screaming & banging of the doors was pretty frightening! Everything on the photos looks quite reasonable,but in reality it is complete opposite inside & outside,dusty, dirty,unkempt! Really surprised how health department hasn't paid a visit to this place! Never again!And the worse thing was to be charged double the price of any reasonable place in town!

Worst hotel experience ever! Long term residents are total ferals and partied all night, couples fighting and screaming. Drug deals were being done on the front nature strip. Topped off with having all rooms above and beside us having sex ALL night with comings and goings, literally!!! One would leave and another would arrive. Just absolutely not a "motel" you wish to be at. Do yourself a huge favour and do not go there!
