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 The room was very outdated & basic for the price charged.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 While the decor is very old and outdated, the bed hard, and the rooms are right next to train tracks so throughout the night all you hear are the trains.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

Service: Very good, gentleman at the reception was very no mess no fuss, check in and out very easy! Room: Good size and clean! 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.

The staff were very friendly and the room was simple in layout. The hand basin was in the bedroom area which was different with the toilet and shower separate. The shower water pressure was great but did have an slight chlorine like smell, perhaps it's needed? For a stopover between adelaide and melbourne the accomodation is good and clean. The... More

The motel was fine. The rooms at the back were well away from the road and weren't affected by the noise. The room was clean although a bit outdated. We tend to want to have fresh air in the room without using air condition but this was a little difficult as windows opened at the top of the door and... More
