Disappointing night

I have to be honest, with the price we paid for an overnight stay (granted we needed a room for 5 people) this was a little disappointing. There is a microwave in the room which I assume is for self catering, but we had to ask at reception for glasses, cutlery and plates. There were only two tea/coffee cups in the actual room. The ironing board was in tatters (we didnt need but I wouldn't have used if I had) and there were iron marks on the carpet where someone I assume previously had the same concerns with the board, and had attempted to iron on the floor. The bathroom grout was mouldy and the basin area not overly clean. The wifi was very poor with two teens relying on using their own data. All seemingly small things but not something I would expect when paying $180 for the night! The hotel is tired and in need of some TLC which is a shame because its a great location being so close to Sovereign Hill. I am not usually one to complain and we have stayed in a lot of hotels over many years, but I feel the need to express my overall disappointment with our stay.
