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

I've stayed here twice now and would be happy to stay here again. The hosts are genial and helpful. The rooms are large and have the usual facilities you expect. The decor is possibly a bit dated but they have modern reverse cycle air conditioners, LCD televisons and Freeview and Austar. The other services such as meals, the pool, spa... More

We stay at this motor inn, for a one night stop, and were made to feel very welcome. Noise from the highway was a bit of an issue, as trucks pass through this town continuously. Even though the furnishings were a bit outdated, it was a very clean, comfortable room. The shower pressure was fantastic, and the beds very comfortable.... More

A group of nine of us were travelling to phillip island on our bikes for the moto gp. A mixture of professional people and one overseas executive officer. We booked the hi-way 8 motor in well in advance. On checking in Linda and brian were very attentive. We mentioned we needed dinner for the nine of us and they said... More

We stayed one night - an extremely cold night - but were warm and comfortable in our room. Not the most beautiful place but clean, comfortable bed, good heating and fridge with milk and tea and coffee making facilities. We thought it was good value for the money and would stay there again. Just make sure you get a room... More
