Filthy, dated, but great location

Pros: Location
Cons: Staff need training and standards need to be upgraded and set. This place has so much potential. Surely it must be a health hazard.
Location: Central Parnell.
Everything appeared totally unprofessional on this site. First impressions set the standard of the room. Reception area untidy and vacuum cleaners sitting there (clearly this is their storage area as they don't appear to have been used int he room I had)The room was filthy - bed linen gross, dirt, dust and grime everywhere, cutlery unclean, dirt and dust around electrical cords and power points, mold and mildew on curtains. Didn't use the shower as there was still old soap left on the shelf so nervous to think of what else was in the soap trap. Tiny fridge with old microwave balancing on top of it and dirty old toaster balancing on top of that. Old furniture cramped into the room.

Even my kids noticed it was filthy

receptionist doesn't regularly check his emails and had already given our room away.. So he put us in a different room. He called the cleaner who was finishing her clean of this room so it was now ready. She was finishing up as we walked in but had no vacuum, mop nor any clean linen. the place hadn't been vacuumed, in the lounge was a pull down double bed which was already down and she hadn't cleaned all the bits and pieces from under it, more rubbish under couch cushions a small red carpet mat at the end of the bed had so much dirt under it I don't think it's ever been cleaned! Behind the TV cabinet along the window was a mass trail of dirt, dust and dead bugs also left there for us.. She spot cleaned the lino badly with a cloth instead of a mop and there was the previous guests hair in the shower! Four of us staying in this room and we were given one small bar of soap and one tiny shampoo barely big enough for one. The handle for the shower door had been snapped off at some stage and not repaired making it nearly impossible to even open the door - the bathroom door itself was missing its rollers meaning my kids couldn't even shut the door - when I helped them we found the door was too small for the door frame!!! Thick layers of dust on every high surface and all skirting boards. Outside was a mess, dirt and cords everywhere. Mattresses in the outside hallways and cords running down the stairs.

Terrible Place

Absolutely terrible place from the first contact with the owner, he was rude and the room was disgusting, had baby cockroaches crawling round from the bed pillows, sheets looked like hadn't been washed and the kitchen nothing was clean even the walls and floor, only enough coffee for 1 cup, never again, paid $111 only worth $5

Pros: NONE
I should have read the reviews before I booked this place! The "room" we stayed in was not a bedroom - more like a rumpus room or something. No windows, no ventilation, and no secured internal/external doors. VERY unclean and unhygienic. Towels had stains and the owner put a carton of milk in a non-working mini fridge... Not to mention that the owner is very rude. Everything at this place was WRONG. We initially booked this hotel for 5 nights but cancelled the last 3 nights as I simply could NOT stand living there for any longer! NOT recommended to anyone.

Avoid this hotel

Pros: Location
Cons: Clean it, refurnish it and hire professional manager.
Location: Sea, and rose garden
The Parnell City Lodge room was smelly (urine in the carpet) and the duvet had creamy stains on it as it seemed unwashed- just disgusting. The manager was rude - repeatedly getting my name wrong while checking in and he seemed to me to be 'creepy'. Definitely avoid this hotel...
