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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

ABSOLUTELY FILTHY rooms, dust filled, broken furniture and smelly! Building looks like it has never been looked after and looks like it’s rotting! PHOTOS ADVERTISED ARE COMPLETELY MISLEADING!!!! Very poor staff service. No reception, you enter through the restaurant! $260 per night, absolute rip off and we COULD NOT GET A REFUND!!!! Appalling place, can’t believe they can get away with charging this much for the poor experience you get.

We arrived here with a very late booking of a room with two persons maximum. But we have four ppl need to stay, the receptionist gave us a great help to arrange quite big room with extra bench bed. Love the hospitality of this place.

Regarding the price of the room, it is too much expensive (295 $AU by night for a triple room). The room was cleaned but old fashioned. The carpet is old as well as the wardrobe that was damaged. We found 2 nails in the carpet A fairground was just in front of the motel and the noise was awfull until 10:45pm. It wat impossible to sleep or even to have a rest... it seems it is like that during all school holidays. We do not advise the shipest part of the restaurant, not very good. Staff is quite nice.
