We have just spent two nights at the Eaglehawk for a visit to the Victorian Goldfields Railway. The rooms are small but very comfortable and the bed provided a great night's sleep. Cooked breakfast was not available as the kitchen was being renovated. My main criticism was the very loud "window rattler" air conditioner.

We had a wonderful , quiet & peaceful Saturday night stay over the long weekend. Colonial styled, spotless clean and well provisioned. Even though the motel was fully booked. The stay was quiet and private. A big thank you for the complimentary bottle of bubbles. So glad we went to Maldon and not the usual rushed and unromantic CBD Melbourne... More

We really enjoyed staying at the Maldon's Eaglehawk. Clean, well-maintained and comfortable - even had a bath. Decor suited the style of the era of both the goldtimes and present-times Maldon. Definately value for the travelling dollar, especially for a senior. The dvd's were free to borrow. The gardens were delightful, all neatly pruned and ready for the summer. I... More

A small group of us visiting central Victoria on our scooters stayed here. The consensus was that this place was great. Ticked all our boxes. Beds and bedding were extremely comfortable. Yes, the rooms are quaint and not "modern" motel rooms but they have everything that one needs, and they are clean and comfortable. The decor is consistent and the... More

My husband & I had an overnight stay at Eaglehawk Motel, it was very quaint. Decorated in old world charm. The hosts Debbie & Chris were very welcoming. Very tranquil setting amongst a beautiful rose garden. Very comfortable bed, warm and cosy on a cold winter's night. I would certainly recommend the Eaglehawk Motel for a relaxed and peaceful getaway.

The Eaglehawk is beautiful old-world accommodation, private amongst the stunning roses and gardens. I have often stayed at the Eaglehawk and have noticed many improvements made as feedback seems to be taken into action almost immediately.

Hosts very friendly, everything clean, and well presented, but room so tiny, bed good and clean, though did not sleep due to such a very, very noisy heater, kept cutting in and out, and had a throbbing sound the whole time it was in operation, ( not sure about fitness centre review, it did not have one)
