Stayed here with a group of friends on a motorbike trip for one night. Had Room 18 which was downstairs near the lawn area with lovely afternoon sun. Nice clean room with a queen bed and a single. Free bikkies, Foxtel and DVD player. The bathroom was old but nicely kept and clean. There were lovely white towels and a... More

Very disappointing, room was basic, dreary, cold,dark, poor lighting, not welcoming. Bed was comfy though. Breakfast menu stated plunger coffee - a joke as it was a packet one. Couldn't wait to leave. Owner was not friendly, has no idea how to run a business.

We stayed at the Bucketts Way Motel. The check in process was easy. I was a bit sad when I realised the menu on the website for the restaurant was no longer current. It is now Thai. I didn't eat there but it was very busy at dinner time. We stayed here for the raw challenge and it definitely suited... More

Had dinner here on Saturday night. Compliments to the Chef as the Thai menu was really enjoyable. The owner on the other hand is a jerk and has no idea how to treat customers. He tried to palm off a partly used can of coke which was flat, when we requested the rest of the can he argued and proceeded... More

Ok, I have stayed here a lot over the years as a semi regular visitor to Gloucester and I can concur with other reviewers in that the rooms and room maintenance could be better. But at the end of the day it's OK for a night or two as it's well located. On my most recent visit I had booked... More

Stayed for one night. Unfriendly Receptionist and staff. below average food, very basic rooms, dirty stain on pillow slip obviously not washed. Pool area was filthy with table and chairs obviously never cleaned. Wine glasses in room would only measure a tablespoon. Would never stay here again.

Travelling as a group of motorcyclists along the Bucketts Way we arrived very hot and thirsty - luckily the Bucketts Way Motel has a pool and all the rooms are air-conditioned. We took advantage of the room plus evening meal package - which was great value. The entire group had a comfortable night, except maybe for 1 couple who had... More

I used to stay at this motel before the current owners and before it was over priced. I recently stayed at one of the villas and my experience with the staff was the worst I have encountered in my travels. I was told the address of the villas which are inconveniently located near none of Gloucester's attractions. After searching the... More

We stayed in the Buckets Way Motel for one night this week. Whilst the motel is clean, the staff, including the owner and his wife, know nothing about how to make guests feel welcome. We walked in to register and were totally ignored while the woman on the desk held a long telephone conversation - no acknowledgment at all, not... More
