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

The service was fine, the room was clean but a little outdated in the bathroom.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
