    The views were nice. It is an old hospital and was remodeled really nice. The staff was very helpful and nice.

    When I arrived, they raised the price from what your website said I had booked it for. They said the price I was given was for two people, but the confirmation you sent me said four people. They raised the price around $60.00 total>

    Location was fine. Nice en suite bathroom.

    Beds were hard rather than just firm. T.V. was set for Asian channels - no english. We weren't told we could use kitchen/dining area.

    View from Window. Room was clean, and newly refurbished.

    No Wireless Internet in room, had to transfer to a room close to office, and shift all our stuff. No room in first room to even lay out cases on floor No Milk in fridge, and wasn't offered any. Went to reception at 6.30am, no one there, so went without. Car was off street, but not really happy with location or area of park.

    The building and friendly greeting. The heater and electric blanket was turned on before I arrived. There was easy access to the car park. The cost of $80 seemed cheap but given the problems it was expensive. The views were great.

    There were no large towels just a hand towel and bathmat. There was no duvet or blanket for the bed, just a sheet and a light throw. There was a frost that night. While there was an electric blanket the only rrom heating was a noisy portable fan heater in a high stud, uninsulated room. The bed was very hard.There was a used tissue on the bedside table and an Australian bus ticket on the floor beside the toilet.There was a huge lighting sculpture that didn't work taking up valuable space in the corner.The drapes were very creasy. I had to put the jug on the floor and climb under the desk to plug it and the fridge in.The grounds were very unkept with overgrown weeds and were flowerless. On arrival I had to fill out another form similar to the one I had filled out on the website. Some explanation for why I needed to do that twice would be appreciated. There was no bedside light or clock. The tile floor in the ensuite was painfully cold on the feet. I didn't get to try the shower because of no towels.

    Value for money. Room was very nice, well furnished, clean and warm. Quiet location with a good view. Would recommend.

    Bed was a bit hard and could have done with another pillow.

    The view was nice

    As a family with young children we would not stay or recommend this motel at all. We did not realise it was a it was a ghost site of a hospital we were staying at but frankly if was like it was out of a horror movie and freezing cold!!!! Woke up early because it was so cold and couldn't wait to get out of there and move to a new place. Sorry would rate it a 2/10 worst yet on our 5 week holiday.

    Good

    Wonderful view, great rooms and en suite. Nicely presented.

    The beds were agony to sleep on, so hard that we left very quickly in the morning once awake. Had to boil the kettle on the floor as there was no other available plug. Light in the bathroom was low. The only reason we would not recommend the motel is because of the hardness of the beds - bad for hips, knees and backs. I've never had to worry about the comfort of the beds before.

    Clean. View over the town.

    Old building, could do with a bit more heating than just a small fan heater. Beds pretty hard.
