2/10 Poor

Tv didn’t work, staff no idea, rude. Kept my bond due to “distinct nicotine smell” - I don’t smoke. Room was disgusting and a mess. None of the advertised dining available due to “Covid restrictions” so so disappointed in my experience and have never stayed at a worse place or dealt with such a corrupt and incompetent place

This was a total disaster. My daughter and I arrived just to be told they cancelled our booking that morning. We have had no refund as yet. They said they weren't taking in any one due to Covid. We had booked this about 4 wks ago. Other places were open They took our money and niw we had no where to stay. Very disappointed with the motel and Wotif. Don't go.

False Advertising
I chose this hotel because it said they had balcony rooms on their website. I received free room upgrade so I had my own bathroom toilet etc. There was no balcony, nothing to cook with, Microwave, Stove Top etc but there was a Coffee Machine but I don't drink Coffee. The Shower Head kept falling down. After hours you have to ring a bell so you can be let in.
