I stayed here last night. A last minute booking. I paid full price for this room and I list below the items needing attention:
BBQ- not working, pool- black water - needs repair said the manager! air conditioner plugged in powered up but not working. Light over bed not working. Hot water tap on basin leaking hot water all the time. Toilet roll holder broken. Showerscreen partially removed. Shower upstairs leaking into our room. TV remote batteries flat. Cockroaches walking around the fridge area. The towels looked clean but were worn out. I could keep going. When I asked the manager for a discount as the room was unacceptable he said he would have to ask the owner, which was a bit of a lie as he was the owner. Then offered to refund my money which while seeming reasonable was not an option for a tied traveller, he new that! We stayed, we suffered, we got up early and left. Been traumatised all day about our stay. I have now seen the Current affairs show about this motel. The local council who inspected the property after the show need to revisit the property. It's deplorable and I'm sure due to its position in an area of Sydney short on accommodation options will continue to hood wink more weary out of town travellers.
