1/5 Terrible

Traveled with family
Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
The family room I booked was nothing like the advertised one I booked. It had a double and 3 separate single beds. The room we got was tiny and had one double and squashed near it was a bunk and a trundle. The bunks were close together and you couldn't sit up. The shower only had a shower curtain and an open room to dress in after the shower no door for privacy. A pet gate across the bedroom was dangerous at night. The family room was extra at $150. And we were very disappointed and felt ripped off. The whole room was awful. We will never stay there again and we are telling everyone not to stay there.

View pleasant. Dog happy. Bed comfortable. But hot water was only warm and the old aircon was leaking water everywhere, had to find a mop and clean up the water twice.

Room was way too small for our family of 5. Two people fine, but not 5. Right on the highway so very noisy with passing traffic. Also on the water & the mud flats stink when the tide is out. Lots of cane toads came out at night (but no one can help that). A cheeky gecko also made it into our room all night and kept disrupting our sleep with his noises. Older building with older bathrooms. No door to the bathroom, just a shower curtain.

Average. Decent for a quick overnight stay
It's pretty dated and the room had a strange layout. Front door opening into the bathroom area, no partition between bathroom area and the rest of the room etc. It's definitely a no frills place, but fine for what we were looking for. It does have a nice view from the front porch area though
