Rated 3.5 stars really should be two. Bed comfortable and linen clean but that's about it. Bathroom had huge open crack in ceiling from obvious water damage, "spa" bath had someone's hair in it and half the jets didn't work. Very basic furniture. As the area has a lot of choices for accommodation, I really wouldn't stay here again.

I must admit it's been a while since staying at this place and since last time the owners have changed. The motel is rather noisy because contractors stay there (especially very early in the morning when they leave). I had breakfast there the first morning and regreted it, the bacon and eggs where rubber like and terrible so would not... More

After missing the last train to Melbourne I needed a place to lay my head down after a few phone calls and getting a bum steers. I called governor gibs and the customer service was excellent. Room was good fresh linen a mini bar even though I did not use it was a nice touch. Room was perfect just for... More

A driver reviver stop to wash off the fatigue from driving this motel came in handy. The ground floor room was neat and clean. A bit noisy being next to the restaurant / conference room but I slept right through it without an issue. The bed was comfortable and the en suite clean and spacious.

Check in was fairly lax, and the walls are very thin noise from other rooms was an issue, we heard guests partying through the night with no control from management. Rooms were fairly clean. The rooms are a good size. Wifi was very slow

Easy to get to from Melbourne. Stayed 2 nights and enjoyed it. Good size breakfast delivered to the rooms and reasonably priced. Restaurant is not open weekends which is a shame but plenty of places to eat in Traralgon. The only downside was the hotel is basically on Princes Highway and a few inconsiderate trucks drivers would insist on using... More

First impressions were OK - nice size room at far end upstairs. However, once in, it became apparant that maintenance is not up to standard. The room was clean, but the bed was a poor quality mattress on a slat base - quite uncomfortable. The net/lace curtain was torn across the bottom with a chunck missing out of it completely.... More

Stayed here for two nights on busness found the motel to be comfortable with clean rooms, Breakfast is available but the restaurant is closed. Close to town so not to far to find something to eat, ground floor room had a spa bath (didn't use) Didn't hear the traffic outside so had a good sleep

The room is clean and quite spacious. Has nice touches like providing chocolates/biscuits and free movies channels - 3 channels in addition to free TV. Did not notice any of the highway noise that some previous authors had mentioned - ask for a room further in from the road. Also, ask for a room on the top floor (I had... More
