Booked a motel room for one night on a quick business trip in the area. Upon check-in I was given a free upgrade to the self-contained apartment next door... efficient heating, spotlessly clean, giant TV, WiFi included, spa bath, fluffy white towels, complimentary continental breakfast... could not ask for more really. Super impressed that the owner (Joe) called me to... More

My stay at the Connells Motel recently (a work trip) could not be faulted. Customer service is a huge thing for me, and I am so pleased that there are people like Joe out there (the owner/manager). He was terrific to us and would go out of his way to assist! A great bloke. I was fortunate enough to be... More

We would recommend them to anyone seeking a very pleasant, comfortable, reasonably priced motel. We were welcomed by a very friendly manager who organised our booking quickly and efficiently. Our breakfast was also delicious. As visitors from WA we will certainly recommend them to other travellers.

Never judge a book by its cover. Or you would drive past this great accommodation. While it looked a little jaded from the outside, it was perfect for our needs. We were greeted by friendly, helpful staff as we checked in - and the subsequent staff we dealt with did not change our views. The externals of the motel were... More

We chose this motel based on trip advisor reviews and were happy we did! Don't be fooled by the outdated exterior. (We probably wouldn't have stopped if we'd driven past!) The motel room was nicely refurbished, spacious and clean! A friendly welcome at the front desk awaits you and I got the feeling that nothing would be too much trouble.... More

We booked ahead based upon the reviews we found on TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed. The apartment/house we had booked for our multi night stay was warm and comfortable. As we were three generations travelling together, ranging from 17 months to 75 years of age, we knew we needed a home like environment. Pleasantly renovated throughout, the accommodation provided plenty... More

Best choice, after a long drive it was really nice to get to this motel. The lady in the reception is really nice, she helped me to order some food, did not charged the local phone call and the breakfast she got me the next day to my room was nice. The place is super clean and altough you may... More

We booked several months in advance although had some concern about the location as there was no reference in the Lonely Planet for the town. We needn't have been concerned as the motel and town proved to be a good choice; we wished to visit Walhalla. We were allocated room 2 which was closer to the highway but traffic noise... More
