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

I arrived with my young son and was warmly welcomed by the owner Cameron. I was surprised and delighted by this motel that's seemingly in the middle of nowhere. In fact, it's ideally located near Maldon and Castlemaine. Newly renovated big beautiful bathrooms, great mattress, clean as a whistle and delicious eggs on toast the next day! In fact, Whispering...
