I booked the family room, 2 adults 2 kids as a stopover on the way to Victoria and was pleasantly surprised. The room was great value, clean, comfortable and well located. No surprises. It had electric blankets, that worked as did the aircon heating. An absolute fantastic bonus too was the restaurant was still open when we got there and... More

We booked this motel knowing that it wasn't highly rated but we were travelling from Sydney to Melbourne with a cat, and didn't have any other options at the time! For $95 (yep you pay extra for having a pet in the room) it was one of the worst motels I've encountered. The room was old and outdated (basin plug... More

The bushmans is budget friendly, The room was clean. It had a very dated heater but there was electric blankets, also had microwave and kettle. The TV was to small and poorly positioned. It is pet friendly. Unfortunately the hot water ran out by 9.30am so no hot showers before we hit the road :-(

Friendly service and near the Hume high way. Good stop over point on the way to Melbourne. There was a good family room where two kids and two adults can stay. the room was big enough and tea and coffee facilities were there

On arrival we were made to feel welcome. Thank you. Quaint retro decor (we loved the style) and very clean room with a comfortable bed. We ate in the restaurant and our meals were homestyle and of generous proportion. This motel is a winner. Great value for those who would enjoy a change from the more expensive chain style motels.

We booked the family room for a night in January and it was not worth the $140 we paid. We had to use two mattresses on one bed coz we could feel the slats of the bunk bed through the "mattress". And didnt want to sleep under the sheets coz they seemed kinda nasty and unclean. The pool was pretty... More

this motel is by no means 5 (or even 4, or 3.5!) star, but it was adequate for what we needed: a stopover on a 1300km road trip with 3 kids & an infant. We had Family Room #3 - booked in advance, on a booking website (can't remember, maybe wotif?). Room #3 has a set of bunks, a single,... More

I didn't have high expectations for this motel after reading the previous reviews however I needed dog-friendly accommodation to break the drive between Melbourne and Sydney and this seemed the best option. The manager was friendly upon arrival. The motel is old and definitely no-frills however the sheets were clean, as was the bathroom and the air-conditioning worked well (considering... More
