"Warning! Bedbugs." Nova Stargate Tip by 1travelwiz

Nova Stargate, Melbourne: 222 reviews and 0 photos

My wife and I have travelled the world staying in everything from 1 star to 5 star accommodations. However, nothing prepared us for this hotel On our first night there, we were absolutely devoured by bedbugs. That's right, over 100 bites each! In the morning, we pulled back the sheets to find the mattress swarming with the little red bugs. The manager came up, saw the bugs and muttered something about " they seem to be becoming resistant to the poison". Although he moved us for our second night, he refused to comp us for even a single nights stay saying that it "wasn't their fault". Absolutely unbelievable! We are now covered from head to toe with red stinging, itchy welts. Stay here at your own risk.

Unique Qualities: Well, in all our travels, we have never had such an unpleasant hotel experience.
