Cancelled and didn't get money back

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Unique is probably a word to use, arriving to fences, razorwire and boarded up front windows was a little off putting however the room was exceptional and once understanding the town I came to accept the looks. As long as you heed the advice it's a good place to stay.

Basically, the whole complex is falling apart. Restaurant closed, playground a tip, pool?? What pool?? Dead cockroaches in the bathroom cupboard. At least the bed was comfortable.

1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
A complete dump and an absolute rip off! I was greeted by two huge dogs at the entrance behind a fence and barbed wire. Reception was closed at 3 in the afternoon and had to phone someone get into the reception - looked like someone was living in the reception. The sparkling pool on the website was half full and green. The sliding door latch had previously been broken and could have easily been pried open again. Did not feel safe in the area - on the main road through Tennent Creek! Paid $140 for the night and would not have stayed there for free if I was aware of the situation. This place was an embarrassment to Australian regional tourism.
