Reviewed 27 May 2012

My husband and I stayed in this motor inn after attending a wedding at the nearby Athol Gardens. Due to the price and location nothing spectacular was expected. There was a sign out the front advertising a room and breakfast for $75.00, when I rang my room was offered to me at $85.00 without breakfast (I had the impression it was not offered but obviously not the case), something was mentioned about a Queen bed so I believe there are a few different room classes.

We arrived 15 minutes early for check in and I noted that the reception was closed. On closer inspection I found a note in the front window telling us that the proprietors were out and would not be back till the morning! Our key was left in the door!

Opening our door we were struck with how freezing cold the room was!! There was a new reverse cycle system in the room but no electric blanket on the bed. As this was very late Autumn, cold weather is expected, but contributing to the very cold indoor room temperature was a permanent open portion of window in the bathroom (despite the fan coming on with the light so ventilation was not an issue) and a lack of door seals. As well as the door to the room there was a un-sealed square door to slide in a food tray, which we plugged with our dirty clothes bag to alleviate the draft.

We fumbled working out the reverse cycle but got there in the end. The set temperature on the unit was 25 degrees which we thought to be excessive, but later realised that to overcome the draft this made a barely comfortable temperature. We did not want to leave the unit on whilst at the wedding but we should have, it took a lot to re-heat the room. We utilised a spare blanket but that was not enough, the weight of the bedding needs to be improved for winter, electric blankets should be fitted and drafts should be sealed. The environment and cost of water and electricity did not seem to be considered with the lack of draft seals and a dripping tap (which sometimes streamed in the ensuite). This did not disturb our sleep as we shut the door to stay warm and the noise of the air con was enough to drown it out.

There was a single bed also in our room which was next to a window and the door, glad I did not have to sleep in that as this would have been even colder. Whilst the Inn is off the highway the road was not frequented by traffic at all during the night.

The room was clean and had the basics (toaster on the wardrobe floor??, microwave, kettle, flat screen). The hot water in the shower was not an issue thank goodness!!

Room Tip: Don't book ahead, better deals off the street!
