Little bit of this and a little bit of that
Only one person to do check-in, who was also the barmaid for the public bar and the attendant in the pokie that meant we were constantly interrupted during check in. We requested 2 single beds, got a room with 1 queen bed, asked to move us....which took time to find a room with single beds. Thankful that they did move us as the original room they gave us looked out over the back roof of the hotel and nothing else. At least the room we eventually got had a view straight down to the front of the hotel where we could see our rental car which was street parking. We finally got to our room, unpacked then went downstairs to find something to eat only to find on our return that our cards didn't work. So back to reception to request more. On our 3rd night the same thing happened, our cards didn't work so once again we had to get new cards. All up we went through 3 sets of entry cards for a 4 night stay. The rooms are basic but very comfortable. Shower pressure is superb. The in-room guest books need to be updated, they still say that there is room service and that there is a restaurant onsite that serves dinner and breakfast - Not so. Granted that the receptionist did say that she had only been there for a week, between her and Rahoul - I'm sure they're the only 2 that run the hotel/motel, they did a great job trying to do the best with what they had.
