My husband and I recently stay here on our ski trip to Falls Creek. The service was friendly and professional and the reception we got from Bentley (the owners dog) made us feel right at home. The owners Darren and Charlotte were friendly and helpful and went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable and hassle free. We... More

Excellent friendly service, clean sheets, plenty of bedding and pillows. We had the family room and could have comfortably slept all 7 of us, if we had known! 2 doubles, 2 singles and a sofa bed. The only downers were - no kitchen sink, so water for kettle, dishes etc had to come from the bathroom, and, air con/heater in... More

Enjoyed a comfortable stay here, all was spotlessly clean and tidy, very adequately furnished and equipped. Bathroom had a good hot shower. Reception was helpful and friendly. Breakfast was good. Regarding the laminated notices mentioned in other reviews, there were just the usual notices on the back of the door regarding fire safety, rules and regulations, same as everywhere else... More

Check-in was cold and rushed, and the only question we were asked was "do you want breakfast? I need to know before 7pm so i can go to the supermarket". The room is a typical older style motel room, but it did appear to be clean, and the plasma tv on the wall was good. The features that stood out... More

This motel has a long list of regulations, many of which involve a financial penalty ( such as if you take away any of the tea,coffee, shampoo etc sachets you will be charged $10 extra.. One of the rules was that dogs were not permitted in the rooms due to 'health regulations', which we completely agreed with. However, this particular... More

Central location - close walk to nice funky restaurant (Stockpot), and cafe (Treats). While the room was on the shabby side, it was clean (although didn't want to walk around in bare feet). The downside was the plethora of signs within the room and the reception office stipulating rules and warnings (e.g. extra charges if you leave the lights/air conditioning... More

Location is good, a short walk into the town. Tea,coffee, hair dryer, microwave, toaster, cutlery etc. Darren the owner could be a little more welcoming, I did'nt want a... More

Oh dear. I can't think of much to say about this place that's positive. Our room was filthy and dark. The carpets were so dirty and stained that we wouldn't walk on them barefoot. The curtains were filthy. The coffee table was covered in some revolting sticky substance - the hotel literature was sticking to it. There were cobwebs everywhere... More

This hotel is in a great location, walking distance to the centre of Mt Beauty, close to ski hire, etc and many cafes/restaurants at Tawonga South. It is very clean, comfortable, great hot showers (watch the water, takes a while to warm up and then can change to very hot quite quickly, but you just have to adjust it), large... More
