Stayed one night travelling between Melbourne and Sydney. We are horse people so I wanted to check the motel out for future horse competition outings. Stables a re clean, safe and recently had new addictions like stall doors etc to make them even safer for horses (great to see the owners are serious about horse safety). New yards also been...

This great little country motor inn was a life saver for us on our travels from Adelaide to the east coast. We'd driven 7 hours in a storm with two dogs and couldn't set up a camp anywhere as per planned and thankfully the Tarcutta Halfway Motor Inn was pet friendly. The owners were very welcoming and friendly. The place... More

A friendly welcome, even offering free horse poo! Better than average size shower, and good range of options for the included breakfast. Great place to stop between Melbourne and Sydney and the best value going. Support this family owned business with its warm rooms, garden and horses.

This is a fab little motor inn/motel, half way between Sydney and Melbourne, and gives you that home away from home atmosphere. New management are friendly, capable and make you feel at home. It is simple, but well maintained and we will be back on our travels and recommend it too. Beds were comfy, shower heads were large, and everything... More

New management has breathed new life into the establishment. We stayed several years ago - it was good back then too - however the new owners have freshened the place up.....it's a really pleasant place stay, have breakfast and recharge. The rooms are simple, warm and comfortable (but needs a decent freezer unit for picnic/esky blocks), bed comfortable, hot water... More

Hi I want to tell everyone that we had a great time staying here- it was lovely.

Our 6 month old Samoyed puppy stayed with us in his crate and was well behaved... More

This is obviously not a 5-star hotel. That's fine; it doesn't advertise itself as such. It's very good for what it's supposed to be - a roadside motel. Clean, and the facilities for horses are perfectly adequate. And Matt and the other staff are very friendly and accomodating. The G&T was excellent. They're clearly trying to do a good job,... More

Travelling upto NSW from southern VIC. Rooms were clean and the typical old school dated for a motor inn. Food in the town was an issue. Especially with small children. The RSL was shut on a Sunday night and the pub not bothered. We ended up eating in the motel bistro. One of the largest value for money meals of... More

Great value, clean, friendly staff and well located for our family visits to Melbourne (we're from Sydney). Since the by pass it's very quiet and peaceful. You can bring your dog and/or your horse too. Take the time to check out the Truckie's memorial on the way to Melbourne opposite tge service station as you drive out of town. The... More

As others have stated, not the most modern but thats not why you stay here. We are doing a road trip with our 5 month old to Melbourne from Sydney and wanted to break up the trip.
