    I had to ask for bedsheets. The shower head doesn't stay up. The painting in the room was upside down. Austar was fine, but you couldn't get the usual commercial channels on the TV. There were tradies working there all the time.

    This is a fairly basic motel. Room was fine. Fridge door couldn't shut due to build up of ice around freezer compartment. Very stained bathmat, but otherwise linen fine. Wifi was so slow it was basically unusable. Otherwise all good!
