We stayed at this motel in January (we had 3 rooms) for 3 nights. Brian was most helpful letting us view the rooms beforehand. Price was very reasonable, the pool was great. Had a great holiday visiting the Grampians, the wineries (bought some good ones)Visited the Ararat jail which was very informative.

Room was clean and a good size. The owner was willing to help out when we had questions. The hotel has a nice pool too which is great for the family (another hotel we booked into originally advertised a pool on its website but there was no water in the pool and it wasn't functioning). Overall good value for money.

We picked this hotel because of the spa, it was a fair way from where we were going but we liked the idea of having a hot tub. The rooms are out dated and not very clean and the shower was filthy. The toilet was broken and rocked from side to side. Brian the owner is very difficult to get... More

Mine host, Brian, met our coach party of 30 and as we were late arrivals had arranged for quite a good meal for us at the nearby Gift Hotel. Rooms were spacious and clean, although traffic noise was a problem with some of our party. A good hearty breakfast saw us on our way. While the Motel is not in... More

I booked this room over the phone after viewing it on the Internet. I paid at check in and then went to the room. The room was dirty including the carpet, tops of bedside tables and the shower. I returned to reception and they would not refund my money. I chose to lose my $95 and stay at a much... More

One of the staff who was called Brian was so rude. The room wasn't serviced and the microwave didn't work and the fridge was so noisy. We had booked it for two nights but after one night left there. The rude guy charged us $20 more than we were agreed. Not recommend it at all!

Family operated motel, helpful operators, clean room. Fantastic updated bathroom. Comfortable bed. Quiet air conditioner. Quality, thick drapes. Microwave in room with tea and coffee facilities. Decent size coffee cups.Generous continental breakfast served in dining area at a cost of $5 per person. Our room was at the back which would have helped with highway noise. I think the thick...

We spend every Easter at the Hi-Way 8 Motor Inn. Brian and Linda are really friendly and very helpful. The bathrooms have been modernised and the rooms are a good size. The furnishings maybe a little out dated but very comfortable. The pool also has been remodelled and is a great way to end the day, great bar-b-que area with... More

It has been my pleasure to stay at the Hi-Way 8 monthly for the past 2 years on business. This charming motel reminds me of places I stayed with my parents, driving from Melbourne to the Gold Coast in the 1960's. Since then, I have stayed in 5 Star hotels in London, Europe, Japan, Canada, USA and South East Asia.... More

I stayed here between Melbourne and Adelaide, and only booked for convenience. I booked a family suite and was surprised by how spacious it was. The bathroom has been recently refurbed and the aircon is new but the decor is a bit dark and dated. The hosts were very friendly, and gave me some good reviews on where to eat... More
