We stayed one night late in Nov 2014. The motel is easy to get to from Melbourne airport, just off the M80 ring road. Lady on reception was very pleasant.The room was typical of thousands of Aussie motel rooms, clean and tidy but dated, although the bathroom had been re-tiled at some point, and was nice and clean, there was...

The Staff were very accommodating allowing a late arrival. The room was clean and a discount was offered as was last vacancy for the day. However given that motel was rated as 4 star I would have expected much better in particular the bathrooms and spa had damaged tiling. Breakfast was adequate but expensive. A constant low hum was to... More

Friendly welcome in reception. Very polite and helpful. Room very clean but unfortunately very dated. On the highway but traffic did not disturb us but @ $150 a night through wotif was disappointed that i read breakfast daily as meaning supplied. Not extra. But if this is the cheapest around i would stay again as friendly goes along way

The owners of this motel need help! They are two ladies madly running around in circles getting no where. And money seems to be the only language they understand! The room is clean, however extremely small, and I do mean really really small. When you are charged $135 for the night, it is extremely over priced. The bathroom is cheaply... More

We stayed in a spa room which was clean & well presented. However the toilet was far too close to the wall in the bathroom which meant you had to sit slightly sideways on it. The queen bed was very hard and my husband felt he was sleeping on a slope. My biggest problem with the room was a neighbours... More

Very nice staff went out of their way to help us, was able to book over the internet, emailed them with a mistake that I had made on the booking and they emailed back within the hour. This was a very pleasurable experience.

First impression was the stench of stale cigarette smoke. Linen and pillows also stunk of stale cigarette smoke. Bathroom would not even make it to one star with dodgy tiling and the shower recess started to fill up after only 1/2 a minute. Suspect partially blocked drain. Noisy air cond dripping condensation right outside the door. Wrecker ball needed.
