Colonial Village Motel Taigum Brisbane Reviews
Disappointed Feb 23, 2010
We chose this motel as it was close to Boondall Entertainment Centre. The room appeared to be clean but when we got up at night the bathroom had cockroaches running around it. By morning there were about a dozen dead cockroaches. Most off putting. We found two more in the waste paper basket (put there by someone else). Our unit was a few doors down from the onsite restaurant - so not sure where the cockies were coming from?
Bed was comfortable but they only provided one extra pillow which we had to fight over. Breakfast basket was good with cereal, 4 slices bread, numerous spreads to choose from but no butter.
Water temp in the shower fluctuated. Air conditioner didn't go lower than 26 degrees on a hot night (we set it at 20 degrees). We advised the staff of the roach problem which they said they were aware of a bad infestation.
Very little traffic noise.
