I would recommend Murray Gardens Cottages and Motel. The manger Tammy was warm and friendly. The surrounding gardens are lovely. We stayed in a motel room. It was clean. I was pleasantly surprised to see the room had a microwave and not just cups and saucer, It also had plates and bowls. So we could make breakfast if we wanted... More

It's not new, but it's very tidy and clean with good sized rooms and good value for money. It is a family run business and they are very friendly. It's not far from the city centre and a short drive to local wineries. I look forward to coming back again !

It's clean enough. Linens are clean. Quite big. There are a lots of ants. Staff is friendly. Sound proof is really bad as next door neighbour left at 4am and woke us up. Can get quite cold but there are electric blankets. Microwave is very handy in the room. Close to the town centre.

I chose to stay in one of the motel rooms in a block that was towards the back of the property and consequently quiet. The room had all the standard basic motel room facilities but was quite spacious and clean. The bathroom was cleaned each day!! The only draw-back was the distance from the CBD but because I had a...

We stayed for a night. After a day of driving around there was plenty of things for our daughter to enjoy, like the hammocks, find the snails, chess & the jumping pillow. I could've stayed on the hammock all day. The grounds are really nice, so different to staying in a hotel on a main road. We took our telescope... More

Have stayed here a couple of times now.. Good honest country accommodation, reasonable sized cabins with a wood fire that is great for those winter nights like you experience in July If you think you need the Ritz at all times this isn't for you but for those with more realistic day to day expectations this will tick the boxes....

Stayed three nights in motel room. Clean, functional and well-maintained. Great place to stay if on the road with kids. Plenty of grounds for them to run and play in a bush setting. Good facilities for them- pool, table tennis, volleyball, kangaroo jumper (which was very good). Also a good idea was the communal kitchen with outdoor (covered) eating area.... More

Our family of 4, parents and 14yr and 8yr olds stayed 1 night in "Bartholomew", one of the motel rooms. Clean, quiet and functional, albeit modest in decor. The kids were able to burn off their extra energy with swimming, the bouncing pillow, and ping pong, while we enjoyed some refreshments at the picnic tables and watched. There was also... More

Great little cottage fully self contained. Two bedrooms was spacious enough for four adults a baby and a dog. The wood fire was so easy to light and keep going and very cosy to sit around. The gardens would be great with children as they had plenty of things for them to do including a bouncing pillow that was kept... More

Stayed for 2 nights in a motel room. Rooms were a bit tired and the bathroom small. They definitely need renovating. Room has heating and air conditioning. There is a toaster and microwave in the room as well as tea/coffee making facilities. Quiet location not far from town. Expansive grounds. On the negative side the electric blanket on one of...

Hi Vanessa, Thank you for taking the time to enter your feedback here. I'm sorry to hear that your experience with us was not totally enjoyable. We are constantly striving to improve the appearance of the rooms, although as most things, its a time and money thing. If you get a moment we would love you to give a call... More
