Baffles Creek Hotel
When we got to Hughenden and found the motel we were staying at, that was when things got really bad… First of all the room we had did not have the kitchenette we were promised. Then I went to have a shower and the shower was taped together with electrician’s tape. The fridge wouldn’t close properly, and they were re-surfacing the car park that afternoon (loud and smelly). We decided to have a quick look around town and found “Mutt” the dinosaur. There wasn’t really much else to see! When we got back to the room Merv took Reagan for a swim, but the pool was filthy. And to top it all we couldn’t eat in the restaurant because we had no reception on the baby monitor and it was not a suitable place for Reagan. It all turned out all right in the end though after I talked to the manager. There was a mix-up with the rooms, and we were offered another one but decided to stay where we were as we had already unpacked and were only staying for one night. They gave us access to another room so we could use the microwave to sterilise bottles, and shouted us breakfast. We were also given free ice for the esky. We spent the night having dinner in our room and reporting on our first few days and sorting pictures we had taken. We had a relatively early night, and slept well. We got up early, had breakfast and left around 7 am when the pool was being cleaned…
