We don't travel to Melbourne often, but when we do we often stay at Poets Recall on the way home. It is becoming a bit tired, having been built in 1986. but the new managers seem to be going for renovations. The Restaurant in the old Railway Hotel building is undergoing re-furbishments and is due to re-open "soon". The snippets... More

Nice old fashioned motel in a quiet part of town. Eclectic mix of architectural styles, homely feel, very clean. The hosts were pleasant and easy going. They gave us some muffins on arrival and helped the kids get organised in the pool. WiFi was patchy. Free DVDs available.

My wife and I stayed here for 1 night on our way home from Melbourne. We drove around the town looking at motels and decided on this one as it wasn't on the main road. We stayed in a ground floor room, saving us having to carry bags up the stairs. The room was a reasonable size and the bathroom... More

The room is brick and panel and fits a queen bed and that is about it. The ensuite, which is decorated in the most bizarre tile, is a foot from the bed. Anyone going into bathroom will wake the other. The 'flat screen' TV is the size of a hand span. We paid 120 for the night. The good: the... More

Very clean and spacious. Excellent friendly and helpful customer service. Within walking distance to the main street. Thought the $130 was a little bit steep but it was over the Christmas period. Would highly recommend and would stay again.

Great value for money with polite owners and spa available in some rooms. Rooms have good curtains which block light out for those who like to sleep in beyond sunrise. And unlike many motels these days there are facilities to wash ones car etc Local RSL is short walk away and has great facilities.

Staying the night on the first night of the new owners. Room are a bit tired but are very neat and clean. Could say it's a classic country motel. Has everything you would want in the room. Free Wifi is works but a very week signal. Wish the new owners all the best on their new venture.
