We stayed for 1 night Australia Day weekend in January to attend the Newstead Folk Music Festival. When I booked it I thought it wouldn't be very good because the price was cheaper than I expected to pay especially considering that it was a long weekend. But what a surprise we got, lovely setting in nice gardens. Very comfortable, great... More

Steyed overnight April 2015. Friendly staff with a great attitude and a immaculately presented room with a recently renovated bathroom. Very comfortable. Quality TV and DVD in the room, and little touches like the quality complimentary coffee make this place a great place to stay. Highly recommended

We have stayed here three times while visiting family near Maldon. Our stay was pleasant and although facilities are simple and understated, rooms are very clean and comfortable. The owner, Cameron, was lovely and very welcoming. On one of our stays we even met his gorgeous daughter and their dog. This is the type of accommodation you expect from a... More

We have been living OS for the past 6 years and now it's time to start revisiting the Victorian Countryside. This weekend was to have a look around Maldon / Newstead areas of Victoria. Tried to locate accommodation in Maldon, but due to some sort of festival (Vintage?) nothing was available, so called Cameron at WG Motel where he had... More

Agreed with previous reviews. This is how motels should be run. Full credit to the owner Cameron for his cheery disposition and attention to detail. Can only add that the in-room convection panel heating is very effective and totally silent. Big screen TV and DVD player with all connections means you can bring a laptop loaded with your favourite movies... More

We booked this motel (2 Rooms) for a night while travelling around central Victoria, and to be honest we weren't expecting much. We have stayed in many hotels/motels costing double the price of Whispering Gums which have been terrible, however we were pleasantly surprised from the moment we checked in. The Hosts were friendly, genuine and very helpful. We stayed... More
