Needing pet friendly accommodation for an overnight stay I'm so happy I found the Bushmans Retreat. The super convenient location is only second to the service provided by Yash during our stay. The chefs special dinner was exceptional, and the dessert heavenly. Our 12 yr old dog was made welcome just as much as we were. This will definitely be... More

I stayed here a few nights ago on my way to Melbourne with my two pet greyhounds and luckily I didn't take any notice of the negative reviews. Our room was spotlessly clean, comfy bed with crisp white sheets and fresh milk for coffee is a rarity. I ordered my home cooked meal which Yash kindly offered to deliver to... More

Do not be put off by the outside appearance. It is an old motel, but freshly done up, with very clean & Roomy rooms. Friendly & helpful staff. There is a "Home-style Cooking" BYO Restaurant on the premises, which is very convenient & Yummy ..... for brekkie or dinner.

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 The room was old and outdated (basin plug...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 :-(

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.

My husband and I stopped here overnight on a long trip. Vash could not have been nicer...very friendly, a lovely young guy. The rooms are clean, no complaints whatsoever. We are stopping back here shortly on another overnighter...this time with our little dogs...no problem at all...how many motels accommodate you like this?...a haven for dog lovers.
