This is a clean, good quality and reasonably-priced country hotel. If you accept that, you will not be disappointed. When I saw that it was rated "Number 1 in Geelong," I was expecting something special, something more than I described in the opening line of this review. I didn't find that "something special," but as place to call "home" for... More

I feel sad writing this, as it was rated so highly which is why we're here. This is a time warp, including the double bed with electric blanket and the tiny carton of milk. The people are kind and caring, but it's time to move into the 21st century. Wi fi is a good start but I'm still in the... More

Being number one in the region on Tripadvisor can be a double-edged sword. Yes, it will attract guests. But when it is accompanied by one review stating that it's the best motel the guest has ever stayed in and another that used the word 'spectacular', there is a risk that incoming guests may be disappointed to find an older style...

We stayed overnight here to see a Geelong football game . We are from Perth and their personal service was exceptional. I have stayed at many places throughout Australia and if you are going to Geelong it is worth the stay !!! Even if It is just to experience old fashion customer service which I thought was gone !!! Nothing... More

I stayed overnight, driving from Canberra to see the Great Ocean Road. This motel was easy to find from the highway. It is a typical motor hotel, with parking in front of the rooms. The room was quite functional, with refrigerator and microwave in case you want to make your own food. The room had a wall mounted air conditioner... More

Our hosts were friendly, welcoming and helpful. The rooms sparkling clean and well equipped. The usual fridge, micro wave and tea making facilities but with a pretty cloth over the table too. There were guest laundry facilities on site and an iron and ironing board in the room. There was also a small indoor heated pool which we didn't check... More

Very friendly welcome when i checked in. Nothing seemed to much trouble. The room was very clean and comfortable. Location to Deakin Uni is great 5 mins and your there. Some traffic noise even at the back of the motel but nothing over the top. Can't fault the owners for there service.

My husband and I as well as friends of ours stayed here recently because of the location. We were attending A Day On The Green at The Hill Winery. We were thrilled to discover that not only was it close to the venue, the rooms were large and spotlessly clean. The proprietors (Graeme and his wife) are increadibly friendly and... More

My wife and I booked this as part of a great ocean Rd trip. We didn't expect much given the price but were pleased to find a comfortable and particularly clean room. Some light noise from highway which might put some light sleepers off but we were fine. Owner was only too happy to help with any queries etc. Overall... More
