The lady at reception was very friendly and helpful but she broke our hearts when she advised the pool was not available because there had been a storm and the water was yuk. Hopefully the next morning. Still not ready the next morning. Very disappointing as we booked this so our kids could use the pool. Room was bright and new. Loved the decorations and bed was very comfortable. Nice and quiet. Big bathroom. But we booked 2 queen beds for 4 people (all on booking email/text) and the sofa bed wasn't made up and there were only 2 towels. Receptionist came straight over and made it up, again very friendly but on top of the pool it was again disappointing. She blamed Wotif, yet this is the first time we have ever had that happen. Room needed a bin in the kitchen area. We had to keep taking our rubbish over to a bin near reception. We had to take all the mini bar stuff out of the fridge to use it. Shower needs shelves or a rack to store toiletries. They had only been open for 6 days so I think these were all teething issues which are being resolved as per discussions with manager (eg couldn't get pool guy in due to xmas, bins are on the way). Both the lady and man we dealt with were great managers - we wish them all the best and would recommend this motel for a short stay.
