We stayed Sat and Sun of the long weekend and had a lovely time. Tanya the host was incredibly accommodating and even provided a lovely breakfast treat for us on Australia day. Nothing was too much trouble and I really appreciated any chats we shared. The pool area was fantastic for our 9yo daughter and the play equipment was a... More

My family recently enjoyed a wonderful four night stay at the Walkabout. We have two young children and booked one of the self contained cottages which met our needs perfectly. The interior of the cottage is a little bit dated but it is extremely clean and has new linen and towels. We were impressed with how the cottage was equiped... More

Definitely the pick of motels on our recent road trip. Loved the family suite with separate room for the children. Lovey friendly owners who were very helpful and welcoming. Kids loved the pool and spa - lovely and big and well situated. The trampoline and swing were a bonus! Handy location and great value. Highly recommend

The service was fine, the room was clean but a little outdated in the bathroom. A little far in walking distance from the shops but still okay. Nothing grand but okay..Breaky was in the price which was lovely..

My Wife and I have just spent 3 days in this wonderful Motel. Very quiet and peaceful. Lovely and comfortable, with friendly and helpful service from the owner. Well situated to wineries in the area and we found some great places to eat.

This was very nostalgic for us. We stayed at the Walkabout Motel which was originally called the Wine Motel, over 30 years ago when it was first opened. Not all the rooms were completed!! We happened to stay there again in Sept,14. The rooms are all named after wines - Moselle, Claret, Burgundy. Obviously wines of the original era of... More

We stopped into the cottages for one night on the way to our skiing trip to Mt Hotham. The 5 of us fitted perfectly in the 2 bed cottage. It was lovely and comfortable. It even had a corner Spa! The managers were friendly and helpful. The price was perfect for the 5 of us (mum, dad and 3 kids)... More

My family (me, wife, 11 year old daughter) spend 2 nights in July at the Walkabout. This was not our first stay - my wife and I spent a night or two some years ago, and our good memories brought us back. The property is very clean and well maintained. A little dated, maybe, but who cares? My daughter was... More

We have just returned from a two night stay at the Walkabout. While the hotel itself appears a little dated, if you want excellent customer service then this is the place for you.

Great service, relaxing, warm friendly. Lovely room with open fireplace & spa. The bed was extremely comfortable! Can't wait to get back to try their limo wine tour and outdoor spa and barbecue area in the warmer months. Thank you for such a pleasant stay.
