Didnt suprise me to find out this is an ALH (Woolworths) motel. Delapidated decor, and riverview balconies absolutely filthy, deck chairs were so mouldy you could not sit in them. Stairways unswept and dirty, car park full of debris. This property has the makings of a great motel if kept clean and given some loving management and maintenance. The check... More

My son booked an overnight stay here due to the location, the best I can say is the staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean but tired, I guess it was reasonable value for $120, and maybe I shouldn't expect more for that rate. We didn't eat at the hotel so I can't advise what the food was... More

Not what we had hoped. It is an old place that hasn't kept up to date with anything. I hadn't thought to say we are an older couple that would prefer a downstairs room. The picture on line doesn't appear to be 2 storey. The room is tiny & in poor condition. BUT -the worst part was to look up... More

The river room had a smell emanating from the drain that was unpleasant. Although clean enough, the whole room needs a much needed renovation. Cigarette burns into the plastic hand basin in the bathroom, chipped tiles and the room is bad need of a coat of paint. The hotel attached to the accommodation is dodgy central! Not a friendly environment... More

Very cheap, dark and dirty. The hotel is very run down. The shower we had was very weak pressured and would jump between scolding and freezing within seconds. Beds were about a 2/5 on comfort. No microwave or utensils in the rooms either. The people at the place were all quiet nice and the pub next door was nice enough... More

First they couldn't find my booking, then I settled in and that's when it started. Room was filthy, used tissues in draws. Toilet tissues on floor that stayed there for 3 days. Baby dummy under bed, shower trickled out of spout and filter in aircon was so dirty had no idea how it worked. When I tried to resolve this... More

This hotel desperately needs attention. Unfortunately first impressions were disappointing. Very old, dirty and the receptionist was less than welcoming on arrival and departure. Reception service set the scene and made me feel like I had made the wrong choice before even seeing the room. Very slow service, less than enthusiastic to take check-in, I had to repeat myself several... More

We stayed here for two nights, we weren't expecting anything spectacular for $100 a night but it was equivalent to a low star backpackers. Very old and outdated, nothing like the pictures website pictures show. Wasn't overly clean but sheets were at least. There was a cigarette butt in the shower which was a bit gross (Told the manager as... More

I booked myself for two nights here for a writer's retreat. Checked in at the bar at 9pm and followed the smelly hallway to my room. The room was no different and was musky, as though there'd been a lot of water damage. The closest power point to the bed head was on the opposite side of the room, which... More

Have been to this pub a number of times but only for a wine on my way through. Yesterday I visited for a wake and hence we all ordered something from the restaurant menu for lunch. Everything that was presented well - even the kids meals. My only complaint was that the garlic bread wasn't hot when delivered however when... More
