I'm compelled to review this motel as I've stayed here before & it needs more. It looks beautiful & its surrounds are beautiful, the beds are good & rooms ventilated well. Now for a bit of detail. The in room wall heater is set to 27 & cannot be changed. You have to fill up jug from the bath as... More

Firstly unless you are with Telstra there is no phone reception, this being the case the hotel charge something like $1.40 per minute for a local call which is very expensive. The rooms are average, lot of cupboards with nothing in them, only 2 wine glasses and water glasses. No bowls, no champagnes glasses etc. The bathroom is slightly dated... More

Dear kirby999, Thank you for sharing your feedback regarding your recent stay with us. Our regional location does mean we have limited phone coverage with Vodafone and Optus. However, we do have a Telstra tower on our property to boost the signal. Our rooms do not have cooking facilities so we do provide limited kitchen items. We are certainly happy... More

We stayed 3 nights and our room was nice with a decent sized bath and balcony. The location is 20mins from a large town Ballarat and the hotel is in the middle of no where which is a nice little peaceful getaway. The pool and spa were both well maintained and small gym area was a bonus. The two let... More

If you want a weekend away from Melbourne to just do nothing then this is perfect. The rooms with separate bedroom and living area are worth it. Try for a high floor and on the golf course side. Creswick itself is a 5 minute drive so the hotel is isolated and QUIET

We stayed here overnight and found it ok but it seemed to miss a lot of small things. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The French shampoo and bath gel were very hard to read which was which. The outside balcony door did not lock. There was no instruction as to the TV channels or book tell... More

Have been a few times, for work. My experiences have been delightful! I have enjoyed delicious meals, good quality ingredients, plenty of variety and the staff have been lovely. Outdoor sitting area is great during warmer months, and there is adequate space around the place to sit on the lawn if you like. The rooms that I have stayed in... More
