Well appointed, clean and modern. Car parked out the front of your room. Nice big wall mounted TV, clean bathroom. We stayed one night to break the Great Ocean road journey from Melbourne to Adelaide. Reception service was helpful and friendly. Fresh milk served and brekky delivered to the door. A few streets away from the main shops and eateries.... More

Positives: Nice room. Good location. Cleanliness. Negatives: The manager wasn't pleasant or helpful at all. Breakfast was supposed to be included in the price of the room, however, we didn't receive any. At night the traffic noise from the main road was really loud.

One night stay in deluxe queen ($135). Could not fault the room - very clean and tastefully furbished. Comfortable bed and could not hear neighbours. Coffee plunger with sachets of ground coffee a nice touch. Friendly reception, too. One small thing - shower cap would have been handy.

I stayed here for a weekend in February and was extremely impressed. I was greeted by Caroline who was warm and knowledgable about the area. I had booked a standard room and found it to be impeccably clean from top to bottom. Upon my request, I was shown around the recently renovated rooms the next morning and will definitely be... More

Stayed 3 nights and loved it. Just looks like your standard motel from the roadside (nothing wrong with that of coarse but you wouldn't expect the dècor you get in the room) I booked one of the newly refurbished rooms and it did not disappoint. Clean, tidy, everything functioning, wi-fi, SMART tv, great breakfast delivered at requested time, friendly staff... More

This place is an oasis, from the outside it looks your typical 60s country motor in. Inside the rooms they are well renovated. Exceptionally clean and contemporary in style. Incredibly well priced and includes free WIFI. Owners could not be more efficient and helpful
