This accommodation was very good. It had heating which was an improvement on another accommodation in the area. The price was good and the host was very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this place to others who needed a comfortable warm bed and a TV to catch up on the news happening in world.

I am staying here on a business trip and as I lay in my warm/comfortable bed with the electric blanket going I am extremely happy with everything here.. unfortunately the restaurant was closed to a personal matter and I rang the front desk to find out about delivery food to my room.. the guy at the desk (Bindon) gave me...

I stayed here while passing through between Adelaide and Melbourne. Cant say enough about how enjoyable it was - well appointed room, lovely food from the restaurant and the staff were very friendly and helpful. I would definately stay again.

We only stoped for the night on the way to Melbourne but are very happy we chose this Motel. The rooms were not brand new but well maintained and very clean. The staff were very happy and helpful. We had a meal on the spur and it was fantastic. We would recomend this place to anyone.

Stopped one night and would not choose to stay here again. The room was very outdated & basic for the price charged. No hand soap & beds & settee need to be upgraded in the room we had, I don't know what the other rooms were like. The man at the front desk was helpful enough service wise but you... More

I will never stay at this place again. I will warn all people in my company to never stay here again. While the decor is very old and outdated, the bed hard, and the rooms are right next to train tracks so throughout the night all you hear are the trains. You also have transit people who leave early in... More

Although the staff were very helpful, lovely actually, we would not stay here again. One of the reasons we chose this particular motel is because they had a restaurant, but after we checked in we were told the restaurant is not open because they didn't have enough guests. We had to then drive into Bordertown to find somewhere for dinner.... More

Out dated in style, but all very good, clean, everything working and really no reason to complain! Parking: No problems there, parking right outside your room.

Really nice People run this Motel. Although the rooms are a little dated they're clean, comfortable and far enough from the road for us not to suffer at all from Road Noise. I suspect the restaurant was contracted out to somebody other than the Owners of the Motel but the food was great, even though a little slow in arriving... More

The people that run this motel are very nice. Please stay there so they can earn a dollar and update. The 70's tile, bessar brick, strange swing doors and chipboard should all go. You are in the middle of beautiful Australia and they are employing local people. I had good nights sleep so I was happy.
