During from Melb to Syd and wanted to break the drive so I asked my Facebook friends for recommendations and this place got mentioned a few times, particularly for the restaurant. Sadly the restaurant was closed as they'd "lost their chef" but everything else was as expected and more. There was a big group of labourers/workmen staying here and the... More

This motel had every thing we needed. Very handy to the main street, RSL club is a 3 min walk. The local knowledge of the manageress was extremely helpful. We arrived around 6.30, and the heater in our room was already on. Our room was downstairs (cost $110-)and was perfectly clean. There were cheaper and smaller rooms upstairs ($90-). Free... More

From the outside, this motel seemed to have lots of character and charm. We decided to stay here as the motel we would have preferred was booked out. The cleanliness of the unit left a lot to be desired. In particular, the TV remote was filthy, and the walls in certain areas were also not very clean. The exhaust fan... More

The rooms are a bit dated and sad looking. The wifi advertised didnt work in the rooms, and reception knew it! But the rooms were clean, and still for the low rates it was not bad value for money. Friendly service as well.

Convenient location to break a long trip. Customer service that would out do many 5 star hotels. Clean and convenient. Great to be able to organise a very late check in in a rural area. Staff helpful and friendly.

This trip was disappointing, have stayed before and been very happy and have left a very positive review. The main reason for chosing ths motel on this trip was the excellent restaurant experience on my last stay, the room compendium stays there is no need to book and the restaurant is open till 8.00pm, well at 7.05 it was closed...

Wonderful place to overnight between Sydney and Melbourne. The room was spacious, linens were lovely and the hospitality was terrific. A very quiet, restful Motel. Staff was very pleasant and helpful. Will definitely stop again.

A great place for an overnight stop between Melbourne and Sydney. It has good rooms and great service with a restaurant attached for dinner and/or breakfast. I recommend a downstairs room for oldies especially if stairs a difficulty. The pool is wonderful after a long drive and very relaxing. It comes fully equipped with toaster and kettle etc and room...

I travel to Melbourne from Newcastle a couple of times every year and always stay here - on the way down and on the way back home. I have never had a bad experience here. I have forgotten how many times I have stayed here. It isn't a 5 star resort but it is a lovely little motel in the... More
