The motel is old but supplied with everything we needed in clean working order. Yash is friendly and obliging, and the meals delivered to our room were way above expectations, and delivered on time and hot! We stayed in room 10, which was quiet considering it was a long weekend, and the bed was firm and comfy. As well as... More

Travelling South we needed a pet friendly accommodation and Bushman's Retreat was it. Exterior very dated and needs a good tidy up but rooms are clean if not in need of a little tlc. Bed was 'just' and my back wouldn't have wanted to stay more than one night. Conveniently located behind a service station, McDonalds and Hungry Jacks for... More

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 The room was old and outdated (basin plug...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