This hotel is very run-down and needs maintenance
Although the Manager was helping and nice, the hotel was a shambles and nothing like the pictures shown in the Wotif photos. This Hotel is very old and the locals suggested that it needs knocking down completely and starting anew. It seems the public needs a Government Authority made to regulate this industry, because this is not what it seemed in your advertising and fell well short on what we expected for our money's worth. I will be lobbying Government for an Authority to be made to regulate this industry, because of such shortfalls. We want tourists to come back and share good stories about the places they visit in Queensland and Australia, not the opposite!

4/10 Fair

I expected more. When we got to the room there were no towels, soap, hair care products and no milk. The coffee and tea packets were on the table but were never replenished. The towels were given after we asked but nothing else. The rooms are not made up or the room cleaned in the four days we were there. The shower had a crack in the glass and the wall had lost paint where it looked like furniture had been dragged along it. Not worth the money.

4/10 Fair

We had a great welcome the Lady manager was very kind and helpful and gave us extra covers for the beds. We had to change the chairs as the others we're not suitable for two disabled people. The apartment is not suitable for disabled people, especially the shower they could not get into it. The apartment smelt and was not very clean, and the China leaves a lot to be desired. Overall we did enjoy our stay, but we won't go back.
