Newly refurbished, super nice staff, you won't beat it for the money. The staff were super friendly and helpful. The rooms were recently updated, new paint, carpet, and fittings. Good air-conditioning, big TV, and comfortable beds. The best value in the area.

We were delayed so ended up arriving after midnight, we called ahead to advise. The key was left out for us and the heater was on in the room which was great because we were cold and a bit wet when we arrived after. The motel owners were accommodating and very helpful the next day. The room was nice and... More

Thank you so much for upgrading us to your home next door. After a long day of travelling it was so nice to have the comforts of home. Gaye & Joe were fantastic and even came over to help us out with the spilt system.

I was only here for night as I was in town for the marathon. As a single traveller, it did the job. Spotlessly clean, a small complimentary breakfast of toast and cereal, friendly and fuss fee reception, easy to find right off the freeway. Heater worked fantastic and I even had a little balcony. I didn't really notice any cupboard... More

Very neat and self contained. Amiable receptionist. Breakfast well served. Definite recommendation! Focal point to all the attractions in Walhalla. The pizzas from the Pizza chef was amazing too. Overall a pleasant and weekend pick.

Stayed overnight on a recent trip and was really impressed. Warm welcome, spotless room, comfortable bed and great nights sleep. All for a low price. They aren't trying to be the hilton, but deliver solid, quality accommodation which is perfect for someone passing through town on holiday or business. Would highly recommend staying here.

Stayed in the house next door to the motel. It was adequate. The rooms are clean and well maintained. As it away from the highway the sound was no issue. Off street parking was good. The motel is a friendly place. We only stayed the one night but would have been comfortable with a much longer stay.

We stayed in the two bedroom apartment (it is actually a renovated house) we often travel to Gippsland for family events. In the future this will be the first place we seek to stay. Very reasonable rate for this roomy apartment. Staff were welcoming even allowing us to check in at midday as we had a 2pm wedding to attend.... More

We stayed on a Saturday evening in a ground floor room and found very welcoming staff, a clean and spotless room and bathroom and comfortable bed. It's not the flashiest of rooms but it's great value for the price and it's clean and comfortable and despite being on the highway, could not hear any late night traffic. The reason for... More
