What a lovely place to stay, nice clean rooms with friendly service loved the spa, great for families too highly recommended. Overall experience was wonderful so much to do and to look at needed to stay longer as 2 nights was not long enough.

Hi all, The owners of this hotel were amazing. Helen was to happy to please, great for a bit of a chat and really good at giving out directions and helpful tips.

We said we would book again, and we did. And it was possibly even better the second time around. We were greeted by name on arrival, and welcomed like old friends. Helen is unfailingly cheerful: she is that most find of a person working in hospitality that actually likes people! Our stay was trouble free: comfy beds, clean & quiet... More

We stayed for one night recently with 3 generations. 2 rooms were great and beds were comfy. Reception was magnificent and very helpful. Certainly the ideal service one would expect from a country motel. Recommend to travellers.

Room was very spacious very quiet didn't even know we had neighbors. Spa was a great size. Very comfy bed as... More

The reviews don't lie - this is a great place to stay. We received a very warm welcome from Helen and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms are attractive; simple but quite stylish and absolutely spotlessly clean. The gardens are very attractive and there are nice views from the rooms over the pool and grounds. We had such a...

Great rooms and what great value! I'll definitely stay here again! The reception lady was extremely helpful and lovely by giving us free cake on arrival, it was her birthday and she wanted to share her cake! Very easy to find and navigate to late at night.

We were out of luck for easter! Our was-to-be host became violently sick and advised us not to stay at his place. So there we were stranded on our way bad from Port Campbell at 5 in the evening with no place to stay! Happily for us, there was still a spa suite available and i was willing to pay... More

This has to be one of the friendliest motels I have ever stayed in Australia, and that is in comparison to some really good finds. The motel itself is not all that modern looking from the outside, but the rose gardens help to create an inviting atmosphere. Helen is a fantastic host. The rooms are spacious and well appointed.

We called in late as decided too late to drive on with the kids and found this lovely motel. Well signposted, quiet, spotless and friendly- just what we needed. Also a lovely kids playground and pool just at the back if the family unit.
