Stayed for 3 nights in a standard room. It's what you'd expect for the price - the room and bathroom were clean and spacious. Decor is a bit dated but TV was new and good selection of channels. Road noise was minimal and I like being able to park my car out front of my room. I had room service... More

I've used this Hotel a few times now for Corporate events where numbers are around 50-60 guests. The location is great, and staff excellent. For me the staff make or break a Hotel experience. Restaurant was good for lunch. Accommodation is Motel style but very comfortable.

Stayed here for 3 nights. I am not sure what the definition of a motel vs hotel is, but in my view if the rooms open to the car park, and you can park in front of your door, and you are on the intersection of a 4 lane freeway, it is a motel. Rooms were dated, tv signal was... More

We visited for nostalgic reasons, as it was a significant Wedding Anniversary and we had spent our Wedding Night here many years ago in the Bridal Suite. On that night we were promised champagne & chocolates with the Bridal Suite, which never arrived, despite our Best Man reminding Staff at the desk when he dropped us off. On this occasion,... More

King Bed was good and pillows fantastic. Good couch too watch TV + extra TV in bedroom. Bathroom was a good size with IXL... More

From my first enquiry the reception staff were outstanding. Easy to deal with. Our ground floor apartment was large and the bathroom was spacious and clean. Close to the Mount Waverley Private Hospital and a large shopping centre just across the carpark this Motel is in an ideal position. Easy to find just off the freeway, but with little or... More

I had booked through last minute.com - my understanding was that it included breakfast - it did not - their response was that I should have booked direct through the hotel as I could have got a better rate - go figure - then to add insult to injury they hold back $100 on your credit card and reverse it...

We went to a family function in the "Heritage Hall" at Hotel Bruce County last Sunday. The food was beautiful with a choice of salmon or eye fillet steak. I had the salmon and my partner had the steak. He is very fussy with his steak and said it was the best he's had at a restaurant in a long... More
