TIME TRAVEL (Back to 1980 ). It is many years since I have stayed at a motel with such outdated and dilapidated decor. Floor coverings were old linoleum and worn carpet . The living area was windowless. Furniture was in keeping with everything else - outdated, mis-matched and uncomfortable. This was winter. Only heating was an inadequate and noisy air-con in the bedroom. One queen size bed with no electric blanket and insufficient blankets. 4 un-requested and unneeded single bunk beds cluttering the room and completely blocking access to the wardrobe. Fortunate I didn't want to cook as the hotplates had no knobs. My room was way at the back in a tired old two-unit out building. The bathroom appeared recently renovated but had no towel rail and was unheated. I have seen backpacker hostels much nicer than this. The only redeeming feature is the location is close to the Port Macquarie Coach Terminal (but quite a long distance from anything else, such as the town centre.
