Nowra on the verge of winter and no electric blankets! The room did have an old box air conditioner above the windows but the batteries in the remote control were flat. Sadly as it was after 7pm the reception was closed and though there be an intercom to ring, there was no one in attendance to respond. In order to warm the room I had to stand on a chair to manually turn the unit on. On top of this the old unit was so noisy it was like trying to sleep in the engine room of the Titanic. It may be trendy to have a Self Serve Check In system but who caters for your patrons needs? IT WAS CHEAP & THAT'S WHAT WE GOT!

Lyn, We don't use electric blankets because the insurance companies are forcing them out of the industry. Almost all of our rooms have new split A/C systems, if you had a box A/C you were staying in one of our budget rooms, which are all completely functional. Yes, we do provide a check-in kiosk to allow guests to access their rooms after hours; however, our phone is monitored 24 hours, and we have staff that live on-site to provide assistance whenever required. Our intercom and phone services are patched directly to Nitel who are an Australian Motel reception company that charge by the minute, and had you called they would have been only too happy to provide assistance. We are sorry that the batteries in your remote were flat, and again this would have been resolved had you called reception. We are sorry that you felt it necessary to leave such a harsh review given the quality of everything else in the room you stayed. However, we do understand that people these days do love to totally trash a business whenever given the opportunity.

Even in Covid affected times I can't understand why face washers and hand towels are not available. There were ashtrays that need emptying around the property and as a non smoker that is unpleasant. Bed was comfortable and the shower was a bit hot n cold. Other room facilities were clean and functional

The bed mattress and pillow was too soft. Adjacent rooms cigarette smoke was coming through the windows. Nowra Motor Inn needs to be a non smoking zone. Guests were smoking outside their room. Too much plated smoke around.

Hello Surinder, with regards to the mattress and pillows being too soft - our mattresses and pillows are high-quality Sealy commercial range which have been developed to suit the broadest range of guest preferences. However, we do understand that the preferences of some people fall outside of this range. With regards to cigarette smoke, all rooms and enclosed spaces on the property are 'non-smoking'. I am also a non-smoker, and do understand your frustrations. However, some people do smoke, and we do allow this outside the rooms in designated areas.

Clean room, comfy bed, great location, large tv and friendly staff. Facilities available were clean and plenty of parking. Great for one night walking distance to most restaurants. Recommended to anyone passing through or staying a weekend.

The 3 most important things are spotlessly clean, very comfortable bed and a good shower. We stayed in rom 13 which has recently been refurbished. Best value for money, which was complimented by the friendly staff Belinda and Thearum
