Stayed here for a family function. The family room is great if you need lots of beds and dont mind the outdated decor. If you don't need such a large room then room 7 seems like a good choice as the bathroom is much larger and has been updated.

vivross, Owner at Meeniyan Motel, responded to this review

All our rooms have updated bathrooms. Room 7 that you mention is the spa suite which has an extra large bathroom. We purchased the motel recently and we are aware that some rooms need extra updating (new carpet in the family room and a new kitchen bench are planned). We have already repainted, updated furniture, purchased new linen and bedspreads.... More

For starters its not all that fair that we rate the Meeniyan Hotel too harshly given we have had so so many wonderful South Gippsland experiences that were the complete opposite of staying the night at a motel...in front of open fires...and big pots of minestrone soup in the winter and fresh salads from the garden in summer. So its... More

We have no record of a guest by this name staying at our motel so we are unsure if this is a genuine review. Guest mentions something about smoking in rooms. Our rooms are all non-smoking rooms, we have no awareness of guests smoking in the rooms and this guest did not bring anything to our attention. We are unsure... More

Very old rooms and not maintained, heater in main room but none in the room with three beds. Breakfast was ordered and one of us thought we would keep the eats not eaten for the next day, in the fridge, after our day we came back and they had taken the left breakfast.(which we paid for).

This is the second time we have stayed at the Meeniyan Motel. It is clean and well presented, provides privacy in a laid back environment. Meeniyan is a good central place to explore Wilson's Prom and surrounding area. There is some great eateries in walking distance of the motel, and the owner of the motel was able to organise a...

We booked the Meeniyan Motel as everything south near the coast was hundreds of dollars. We would definitely come back to the Motel to stay. We were upgraded to queen/spa, & the room was clean, and a good size with a good heater, fridge & electric blankets. Meeniyan is close to everything & a great central location to stay. Definitely...

This place is no palace, but it is clean and well managed by friendly staff. Next door is the Meeniyan Hotel with the standard pub fare, and down the street are the local shops and cafes. We stayed overnight to attend a gig at the Meeniyan Town Hall - a clean bed & bathroom is all we needed.

We are sorry the bed was too small for you. Your room was a standard double bed booking. We also have Queen rooms available which are larger and contain a spacious bathroom. More

A big shout out to the lovely owner of the Meeniyan Motel After checking out Vicki came to find me having breakfast in a cafe in Meeniyan to give me my Ipad that I had left in my room. Now that is what I call service. Thank you Vicki

Vicki provided fast and friendly service, with plenty of recommendations for things to do and see nearby, best places to eat and where to get the best coffee. The bonus was the pub is next door, and served good meals, so no worries about driving anywhere. Some nice little stores nearby, including a seriously good jewellery shop. The room was... More
