          No fuss economical accommodation ”

          Was after close by, economical accommodation & found it here at the Windmill. This motel has been recently renovated. The rooms were very clean with good aircon, excellent blockout curtains, good bed, large clean bathroom. A short walk to ex servicemens club & beautiful Woonona & Bulli beaches a 5 min drive. The motel is brick so good noise insulation from highway traffic. I can easily recommend this motel.

          The wash basin was situated in the bedroom. The accommodations overpriced. Price of accommodation was room only, if you utilised a cup for tea or coffee and you did not clean it there will be a charge of $50 levied to your account. Notice with this information is displayed in the room. I would clarify this motel in the B- grade.

          Some reservations/disappointments.”

          One or two things disappointed us. There was only one blanket on the bed and no spares in the cupboard which is very unusual. The only way to keep warm was by switching on the air-conditioner in heating mode but it was so noisy we had to switch it off in order to sleep. The sink was badly cracked and the taps not easy to turn off satisfactorily so tended to drip. It would have been good to have some information about how things work, where to go etc. but there was nothing. There was some confusion as to where we should park our car (our room was in a corner) but we found the numbers which were very worn and hard to read ….. and others parked where our room number was!!

          The bed was so uncomfortable. It bowed in the middle and I felt like I was sleeping on the edge of a precipice. The cold water tap "screached" when you turned it above a dribble and the tap fitting fell off. The glass shower screen was cracked and full of mould. We would have brought all this to the attention of the manager however as we were there for a family funeral we were not willing to get involved .

          Friendly staff

          It was a shame that the moment we walked into the room we were hit by the smell of cheap room air freshener. Being asthmatic, I had to spend the next hour sitting outside while we aired the room out. Even after 24hours of the air freshener being removed, the room still had a very overbearing smell ( that was in the carpet, curtains and blankets). It was also very disappointing not having bed covers on the bed.

          reception was fast and friendly - they provide fresh milk

          After reception things go downhill, greeted by a cockroach on the bench on arrival. There is nothing wrong with the place if you are happy to stay somewhere cheap and grotty. For the price it was very poor. The power points are all loose. The water temperature impossible to regulate. The spa jets are almost non existent - a large bath really. A lukewarm one. The internet has been disconnected. For reception instructions are to dial 9 but there is no phone in the room? There is a plastic folder in the room and the first two restaurants advertised do not appear to exist or the contacts are not correct. I am sure there is more but I am forgetting - I could have stayed in a 4 star at the beach for the price. Way too expensive for the standard.
