What a lovely motel! Rooms look onto a courtyard of roses with a pool for those warm evenings. Love the decor with a floral quilt and patchwork over throw on a beautifully comfortable iron bed head. Owners were helpful and price was very reasonable. A 10 minute walk into town for an evening meal made for an excellent stay.

Thank you for your review. The roses are struggling at the moment because of the heat, but we are hoping the rains last night will have freshened them all up. Debbie and I are proud of what we have to offer and continue to refresh the motel and its amenities without changing too much. We are pleased that you enjoyed... More

We stayed here for two night over the weekend. We have been several times over the years. We have noticed that the owners have made some upgrades (eg new air units - but still noisy) since we last stayed indicting a personal touch and care for the property that is carefully decorated in an old post war style but clean...

A very comfortable motel with style and decor in keeping with this picturesque historical town. Our very helpful host offered a lot of information about Maldon and its surrounds. There is plenty to do and see in this beautiful 19th century town, but one tip...if you are planning a visit in winter, best to avoid Monday and Tuesday as several... More

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.

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.
