Stayed 2 nights in appt 3 and friends stayed in two of the motel rooms. Everything was very clean and tidy. Jeff & Katrina could not have been more helpful with anything we asked for. Great time had by all and will definitely be back. Highly recommend.

I cannot say more. This is a great place, minutes from the CBD, about an hour from Melbourne's CBD. The staff is very friendly and ALWAYS willing to help in any way possible. Stayed 3 nights and never had a problem. Wish their was a microwave but it's a detail and apart from that it's a really nice place to... More

We normally stay four star and above, but booked this (hesitantly) at the last minute. Stayed in apartment 2, and whilst the decor is dated, it was spotless, the linen was clean and fresh, the beds and pillows comfortable - everything we needed, at a great price and with excellent service. Our boys are 7 and 9 and it was... More

Great value for the cost! The owners were always asking if you needed anything and were very flexible wit arrival departure arrangements. The buildings are older but well appointed and very clean. Beds are comfortable with electric blankets. There are motel style rooms, apartments and a small house on site. Four of us stayed in the house which was a... More

We stayed for one night over the weekend. Staff were friendly and helpful. We booked online, paid a deposit and there was no mentioned of credit card fees until we arrived to pay the full amount. The heater in the room appeared not to work. The electric blanket only worked on one side of the double bed. As it was... More

We stayed her just the one night as we were passing through. The owners were extremely friendly, welcoming and helpful!! The free wifi was a great bonus for the kids, enabling them to calm down from a full day. Breakfast was delicious and still hot! Great, clean room and not noisy at all (and I am a light sleeper!) Thank... More

We arrived at the motel after 8pm following a short drive from Melbourne. Checked in was a breeze. We stayed in Apartment 3 which is located on the ground floor. If you have a lot of luggage, try asking for a unit on the ground floor as units on the first floor can only be reached via staircase. Room is... More

The lady who seems to be an owner was very kind and the room was very clean. And fresh smell from the linens, which was very delightful
