In the Room
Lights did not work, shower smelled, location almost imposisble to find on a drakj rainy night poor signage.
Looked totally different to pictures of rooms on internet. No smoke detector in room but we had them install one. Tv didnt work so asked to have that repaired which they did. Had glasses tucked into mugs in a plastic container which was dangerous as I didn't realise and when getting a mug out from the top of fridge the glass fell out and shattered and as office was closed had to pick up by hand. Bed not very comfortable nor pillows. I guess for $80 not too bad but would not go back there. However lady from office was trying to help us.
Location, we were in Ballarat for a wedding and needed reasonably priced accommodation which we had.
The convenient location to the Wendouree Performing Arts venue.
The fact that the iron burnt the shirt I needed that day and that I was told by the lady there that I had put the iron too hot (although my shirt is 100 pourcent cotton and the iron also burned the material on the board withoin a second...). I was really angry. I could have been given a small voucher or something.
Located on main road Sturt to Ballarat.
I couldn't get the door open as the lock was dodgy and seems to have been that way for awhile. Had to be shown the trick to getting the door open. was worried about getting locked in the room as well as dodgy from the inside too. Didn't feel comfortable at this motel, wasn't as clean or as nice as the other 4 I stayed at on my Victorian journey. Seems to have a lot of workers who stay at this location. I don't think this is suitable for families or solo travellers.
The staff were Friendly, and the location was good for our purposes.
The mould in the bathroom sink, the bad smell in the room, the dodgy shower, the fixtures nearly falling off the walls, the poor curtains causing bad sleep as the room was lit by the external lighting, and the dodgy lock on the door.
location was good close to Ballarat, bed ok.
Poor presentation, nothing like the internet photos of room. Very old decor, dirty old floor coverings, out dated furniture,poor cleanilness , no channel two on tv, it wasn't cheap I'd expected it to look like the advert on Booked.net not worth 3 stars.
The price was very affordable and the room was very clean and comfortable. The cooked breakfast was also very enjoyable. Overall a pleasant stay. Would stay again.
Convenient location Price
Tired furnishing Position of table
Proximity to where friends were staying and they did not insist on a 2 night minimum booking.
Beds were hard, pillows soft and low, floor could have done with a better vacuuming, carpet needs steamed cleaned, towels were hard and small (std size 60x120 - nice to have been larger), room had a stale air smell to it (like a previous user had been smoking).
Parking occupied by commercial vehicles.
Far from luxurious but everything one needed was available in the room.
A couple of itms missing, but were supplied on request.
the electric blanket
very cold, drafts around door, door not sealed. well used appearance looked like workman had been tramping in in their boots - which they had judging by the actions of the units around us. Very cramped conditions, dining table right outside the bathroom/toilet area. Electric lights - only some working. Website needs updating - outside appearance, grounds etc , crappy. Trees overgrown - incredible hard to locate the actual place.
friendly reception and good service
it was a cold night and there were gaps between the door frame and and underneath the door which I had to block up as best I could with towels etc
