“Okay, but.......”
Reviewed 1 March 2012

My husband and I stayed here for two nights to attend a wedding. The motel is well located and easy to find and the staff friendly and helpful. The rooms are of a good size, ours slept five and was a lot bigger than many we've crammed into with the kids! The bathroom is a very efficient design as the basin, toilet and shower are all separate so can be used by different people at the same time. Great for families wanting to get out in a hurry!

Unfortunately the place has been 'let go' quite a bit, it is very 'tired'. There appears to be no attention to detail when it comes to maintenance. The standard of cleaning was so-so. Not gross but not great either. We asked for an ironing board as we wanted to iron our clothes for the wedding. The ironing board cover was quite stained and we had to cover it before we ironed our clothes.

Room Tip: Not for a romantic weekend away but with better cleanliness and maintenance could be a fantastic pla...

We had our staff Christmas Party in December 2011, 2 Course sit down and Accommodation, the food was totally awesome, the room was decorated to perfection, the accommodation was very comfortable, the Motel must have done renovations, as it was very modern, clean and good service.
The Motel is in a great spot in the Village. A pat on the back for the function organisor, excellent job

As a school Camp we stayed over two Nights at Gold Creek Tourist Resort. All the other reviews said the place was horrible. The beds were okey the rooms were good and had a tv. To start with the tv's had only three channels but we scanned it so we had 33. The food was ok but it would be better if you go to eat up the road………

Thank you for your comments, it is nice to see a good reply about our services, we average 500 - 1500 children per week, 90% of our school clientele have been with us many years now and are booked in-advance for many years.

We booked two rooms here for three days for my recent wedding as it was a great location to the Gold Creek Chapel. The rooms are not fresh and clean, appear very worn and weary. After a couple of attempts we finally managed to get a heater remote that worked to warm up the room. On our third night we moved into the honeymoon suite which is much cleaner and more pleasant to stay in. However, reception staff failed to give us a heater remote so we were unable to warm the room to use jacuzzi. Towels in both rooms supplied were thread bare and of a very small size. The only good thing about this hotel is the location to the chapel- extremely overpriced for the poor service!

Room Tip: The three rooms I saw in this hotel were of a budget and threadbare standard!

Absolutely the worst place we have stayed for sometime. Second time we have been there but wont be back. Room was a disgrace. Rotten wood around the shower, marks all over the walls, a used glass left in the frig, stuffing hanging out of one pillow, mattress old and hard. Definitely not worth the money, by pass this so called resort and stay in a pub!
