This was a last minute booking we had to make after other travel delays. The owners were friendly and flexible and didn't complain when we checked in at 11.30pm. The room was comfortable for our family of four, with the kids in a separate room. The free wifi worked and the small kitchenette was available for toast and coffee in... More

Just back from only a one night stay. The owners were great. Super friendly, very helpful, great advice. Even booked a table for us for saturday night dinner. Short stroll into the town centre, so didnt need to worry about driving after a few glasses. Room was very well set out, spacious and comfortable. Excellent value. Pool, though small, was... More

Comfortable and clean, relaxed and restful, this motel is comfortable and pleasant. Booking online through booking.com on the day was easy. Once I arrived the owner was friendly and helpful. The room is well fitted out with a microwave, crockery, WIFI, flat screen TV, new air conditioner. Location is an easy walk into town. Thanks again!

We have just had two nights in the Champagne room. Very tidy and comfortable spa room. The bed was so soft it was like sleeping on a cloud. Open fire in the room was great. Breakfast was well cooked and tasty and delivered on time. Very friendly staff who were very accomodating. Easy walk to the town centre. A very... More

Its a great simple and clean place with a good location to visit the area. The Motel can coordinate trips to the various vineyards and its a short walk into the nice town. People are great and the rooms are well set up.

Title says it all. Has everything you need but it is pretty basic with long narrowish rooms. It's a very old fit out inside and needs a lift. The single bed in our room (the fancily named Muscat suite) has a serious list and was quite unnerving. I also cursed management at 1am when the clock radio went off (some... More

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
