We stayed two nights. The new owners Peter and Lynne we really helpful and accomodating - they cook a great breakfast! They also advised us on the best beaches and places to see in the local area. The rooms were spacious and clean. We will definately be back.

Don't believe what the bad reviewer says. People want to pay peanuts and get the Hilton. Toora Lodge is a budget hotel and does that really well. Andy and Elizabeth have the best food in the area in a little bistro with character.

I booked two family rooms for 2 nights in late November as this was the only place I could find, with all others fully booked. We were 2 families with 5 young kids and arrived at the lodge on the X-mas day only to have a shocking experience that we have never had before. Contrary to what they have advertised... More

The motel is under new management and it shows. The rooms offer basic, yet clean accomodation. The real story here is the food. As the Bistro was booked out, we were offered room service. A menu with an Indian influence offers an interesting choice - even for vegetarians. The meals arrived promptly and were simply delicious. As was the cooked... More

Having moved into the area about a year ago, we happened to stumble upon this small country motel due to a chance in ownership. The new owners, a professional Indian chef and his Mexican wife, have taken over the motel and are serving up a great selection of traditional Indian and Mexican dishes in their small dining room. Don't let... More

Great little Motel in a great location for easy drives to the sights of Gippsland. The family that owns the Motel is very friendly and greeted us warmly. The food is fantastic and at very resonable prices. It is well worth a stay with prices cheaper then other places in the area. Thankyou for your warm hospitality

This is a very basic motel. Probably not been updated in 20 years. You would only stay here if you had to. Breakfast was also basic but I guess adequate. Room was clean but very tired
