Booked for a one night transit stay and first impression on arrival was disappointing. Slept well and easy walk to local restaurant. Sadly hot water failed so no shower before departure. I feel well below standard for the price and would look elsewhere next time.

Sorry to hear about your experience. We have fixed the hot water situation. We are not sure why it might have switched off, but all we can do is respond as quickly as possible. These unfortunate instances do happen even in high end places. Hope you find a more appropriate place for yourself next time.

Room was clean and well presented. Would stay here again. Especially enjoyed the on-site Cafe and communal seating areas available. Motel was located close to river and walking path. Shops were a 10/15 minute walk which was convenient.

Where to start as list is very long. Worst customer service by Ankit. Rooms were not clean and stinky hence have too many mosquitoes. Sheets and towels were not cleaned. When I raised the issue with reception, he got very aggressive. I asked him to cancel the stay and refund the money but he refused. He called another person to support him with arguments so it was threatening for me. I was not comfortable so chosen to stay at friend place. After checkout they charged me extra for cleaning without authorisation. It was absolute shocking that charges were made when I did not stay. I asked for photos of uncleaned room. But they have no evidence. Truly shocking

This was a very unfortunate stay. We have never had such an unreasonable, uncooperative and unruly group of guests in all my time here. I witnessed first hand the 3 male guests in the group speak down to not only on my manager, but my husband and owner, arguing how they had the right to stay up all night and make noise till 3 am. They were offended that we asked them to control their children (and noise levels) as we had several guest complaints about the noise. They stayed 2 nights and treated the place like their own private Airbnb. The rooms were trashed and the furniture moved from one room to another. The pool towels disappeared and there was clearly cooking in the rooms, hence the extra charges for the extra cleaning. This was a nightmare situation and we hope they never return. As a result we have imposed new policies with group bookings.

Older style motel that has been refreshed with new paint and fittings. Comfortable bed, everything very clean, good location. It is a very pleasant environment. Wifi was good connectivity and speed, which is important for business travellers.

Pleasant Way River Lodge was absolutely wonderful. Incredibly clean and all the staff were friendly and very helpful. I have to say having a cafe, The Tin Shed, on site is a huge draw card! To be able to open your door walk 5 meters have breakfast and plan your day was brilliant. I was also impressed with how little noise I heard from other rooms, if I didn't know any better I would have thought we were the only ones staying there! I would definitely stay here again!
