It was in dire need of renovations. When i later returned to reception and... More

We booked 2 nights in a queen executive suite, and arrived to a friendly welcome and a nice clean room. Air conditioning could do with up dating and shower head needs replacing. Rooms are quite roomy with high ceilings and a balcony view over the gardens. Accompanying restaurant Silver Birch served very nice (large) meals.

Apart from being out of the way this was a pleasant stay air conditioning needs updating. Great for a couple of nights away. The restaurant had good quality food that was well priced, good base for sight seeing around the area.

Budget price so was not expecting much and was not disappointed. Out of the way in the back blocks of a small town. Room was comfortable but in need of some attention. Curtain track broken, therefore curtain would not fully close, and bathroom in need of modernisation, but functional. Re-allocated to a different room on check-in left us wondering whether... More

A great couple of nights here. The chef is excellent and all the food in the attached restaurant was delectable. The owner was modest and helpful , and gave us a handsome bottle of wine when we lwft, for spending two nights. The room was very comfortable and well equipped for making snacks. Highly recommended!

More of a "good" motel than a "very good" one. Good value for the price, nothing wrong except that blankets only on the bed barely suffice in winter, and I believe a doona would have been more comfy. However, the reverse cycle aircon can be cranked up to compensate. No other issues, and would stay there again if in Pemberton.

We spent one night here and were very comfortable. Do ensure you check the accommodation first. The rooms vary greatly, some have been renovated, others are less comfortable. There is a restaurant on site too.

Lovely place in a relaxing setting. Rooms were clean and grounds well kept. Joe the owner was friendly and made us very welcome. Restaurant served excellent food and was very cosy with the log fire. Would definitely use this place again.

We were doing a driving holiday and chose to book this motel because it was in a quiet setting, off the main road and it had a restaurant. It was a perfect choice. While the motel is a bit dated, the room was clean and the restaurant was nice to eat at.
