The sheets on the bed and the towels provided were lovely and clean, everything else was covered in a fairly thick layer of filth. The advertised pool is not only disgustingly dirty, full of green water and falling apart, but the decking surrounding it is rotten and dangerous. I suspect the rotten wood stretches further than the pool, and seriously... More

I read the reviews prior to booking this motel. We were originally staying at the Bangalee Motel for one night and considering we were attending a wedding decided we would be back late and going early. So being fully aware what to expect the experience was not as bad as we expected. In the end we had to take an... More

The rooms are old fashioned, seemed dirty....shower recess was moldy and dirty & smelly. The sheets seemed clean (thank goodness) but wouldn't even walk on the carpet barefooted....everything was suspect ....just dirty & very neglected. For $160 a night one expects cleanliness at the very least.

We were caught in holiday traffic and decided we could drive no further that day so pulled in when we saw the vacancy sign. The beds were clean and comfortable and the shower was hot. There's nothing else positive to say. No staff(Had to phone for someone to attend the office), bathroom dated, smelly and mouldy, rooms tiny, and flyscreens... More

No staff in attendance on arrival - or at any other time. Charged $175 - should be a crime. Would not issue a receipt until later phone call. Not contactable by email as their bandwidth had been exceeded. If all accommodation in Berry and surrounding areas is full, drive on or sleep in your vehicle.

For $160 the crappiest hotel I've ever stayed at. Filthy carpet, filthy shower and at 170 cm I couldn't get under the shower head had to settle for it blasting my forehead, mouldy shower curtain, massive gaps to wall cavity behind taps,tea/coffee hidden away in dirty draw, unkept old and not worth $20 per nite.

We booked this hotel for a girls night in Berry. Rather disappointed. The rooms were very cramped and smelled of moth balls. The bathroom was at least 30 years old. Painting on the wall was a cut out from a magazine and there were horrible stains on the carpet. Beds looked clean and were comfortable. Pool area is an injury... More

Tired after a long days ride, desperate to shower and rest. Unfortunately there were a few weddings in Berry. After trying three we rang the Bangalee. The fly screens let insects in. The bed was hard and stuffed. There was more mold in the shower than a cheese shop. The only good thing was the aircon worked perfectly and the... More

My husband & I stayed overnight at the Bangalee Motel in a double room. We found the bed was clean & comfortable but the rest of the accommodation was old, dusty and in need of a complete make over( or just demolish it) as friends who were also staying there suggested! The motel advertised WiFi and we were provided with... More
