We arrived late but had made arrangements earlier with the very friendly Laura, to leave our room open for us. A great big room, and my kids just fell into bed. We were a little disconcerted by the basin outside the bathroom, it was quite high up, and the kettle didn't fit under the tap properly; however not to worry... More

Sabai Sabai is a small Thai Massage business 100 mtrs walk from Wonthaggi Motel. Holiday makers and travelers who stay there often tell us what a lovely place it is. The rooms are spotless clean and staff are very friendly. Clearly, a very popular Motel in Wonthaggi. Based on the positive feedback we regularly hear, we recommend the Wonthaggi Motel... More

I thoroughly recommend this motel. Friendly owners and great rooms. Big, spacious and modern. Huge bathroom for a hotel room with spa and flat screen TV. Very comfortable and easy access to surrounding areas such as Wilson's Pro and shops. Not sure how anyone could write negative comments , our stay was much better than any other country hotel I've...

If your a business person or traveller that need the Internet to stay in contact with work, friends and family by email etc as these days EVERYONE does bypass this place as its cost to use their Internet is $6 per hour. In this day and age to even charge for such a service is outrageous when the Internet is... More

Dear Sir, Thank you for your comments. It was explained to you that the WiFi service was with Tomizone not the Motel and your choice as to use of their service or not. Having said that we have now introduced a Free WiFi service of our own to prevent these kind of misconceptions occurring again. Once again I thank you... More

we arrived in the freezing cold and got rooms on spec., specifying how many adults. We could have had 2 rooms, but they sold us 3. When I pointed out the error the attitude was tough luck, I'm doing nothing for you.

Dear Sir, Thank you for your comments. We all make life choices, in this case you were very specific in that you required 3 rooms, 1 for two persons another for 2 persons and a 3rd for 1 person. This is exactly what you were given keys to. I realise that one of those rooms was a large family room... More

I thoroughly recommend this motel. I booked by phone on a wet and windy winter night and when I arrived 45 minutes later the friendly owner had put the heater on in my room and let me know the score in the 3rd test at Old Trafford. If you don't like cramped bathrooms this is the place! The shower is... More

First place we found when looking for somewhere to stay in Wonthaggi. It is very central and easy walking distance to the main streets. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Ours just a standard room and I thought $130 was a tad expensive, given there isn't even a sachet of shampoo. Bathroom is a large wet room which would be very... More

Had to find somewhere to stay near Philip Island last minute and the Wonthaggi Motel was the only place with room for us (6 guests). We weren't expecting it to be great but it actually was a cute motel! Very clean rooms, nice sized shower and very quiet. Very comfortable mattress and pillows!! Also enjoyed the complimentary biscuits.
