“Great value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

A great place to stay, i came down from Sydney for cup week, very close to Flemington race course.
The staff are very courteous and polite, helpful with local information.
Their Restaurant is awesome fresh produce, nothing frozen and great chef.
I don't know what problem the guy below had, i found this place the total opposite...enjoy

Stayed from Wed 27/6/12 to Mon 1/7/12.
Receptionist direct and un-friendly on way in. May have been a new starter but that is no excuse for unpleasentness.
Paid bill on Sunday afternoon, receptionist obnoxious, unpleasent and rude. He took exception to me using the Bell on the reception desk! saying that the door had an alarm. I asked then why have a bell on the reception desk. He snatched the Bell away from the desk top and removed it.
In response to my request to pay any 'extras' as I was leaving early Monday morning, the receptionist spelled out my address 'Goolwa' and proceded to ridicule it and by inference me, he took a full 5 minuites to service my request making various irrelavent any snide comments which I did no know if was expected to respond to along the way.
Without doubt this is the most unpleasent experiance I have had in a Motel.
The room was at best adequate, the heating was inadequate and I had to wear street clothing to keep warm.
If you don't mind unpleasent people and have nowhere else to stay....you might stay here, otherwise best sleep in your car.

We choose to stay here for the convienent location whilst attending a function nearby, it was quite dissapointing as we were given a different room type to that requested and the room allocated was not appropriate. Items required in the room were not there.
In general the rooms Itself needed updating and a thorough clean if this hotel wants to charge the rates they currently are.

I would recommend this motel if you are staying in the area. It is clean and well maintained but pretty simple.. I think the rate is too high for what you get, but I had to stay in the area to visit family and was probably the best in the area.. If they want to charge that sort of rate at least have free WiFi.........
