  • Disliked: Staff & service

Our room was very outdated compared to others ive stayed in. Our bathroom sink was disgusting. The room smelt odd to start with and there is minimal air flow. Two tiny windows. Bed was very wobbly and way to soft. I put a review on when we arrived. The owner then decided to come and speak to me about it. She knocked and just barged in she was the most rudest person ever! Defiantly not how you run a business. I told her it was my opinion because I’ve stayed at other places around Bairnsdale and this was in comparison. She was loud mouthed and didn’t like anything I had to say. So rude!! Never will be staying there again.
