“Cheap & Cheerful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

We booked this over the internet as we needed a cheap two brm appt in this area, as we were visiting friends nearby. The main brm is in with the kitchen/lounge area. While the second brm is away behind the bathroom. We didn`t find it a problem as we were hardly there, but some people may want the extra privacy.
It does have a pool, but it`s the size of a spa. We didn`t use as too cold.
It`s situated on the highway, which is great for access, & we didn`t find it noisy

Room Tip: Squires Loft across the road for a great steak

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

it is what it is, in my opionion a good 3 star motel. nothing to special but always clean, quiet and very helpful staff. I have stayed here over 8 times and i see no reason to change. It is a great location to get to anywhere on that side of the city and the parking is free. There are lots of restaurants and take away places around. There is wi fi for a small charge and is an easy place to stay.

We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment, it was very large, the bed comfortable as was the living area. Kitchen well equipped. The room was clean and well maintained for it's age and I thought that overall it was good value for money.

Good for the business traveller who wants a no frills situate and needs a bed and to be in the area. Not easy to find entrance so u-turn is par for the course.

We wanted 2 beds and air con as the weekend was stinking hot, and we weren't let down. Good choice of home delivery options in the area.

Does have a pool which looked well maintained as are the grounds.

I stayed here recently with my young daughter for 4 nights, using the "$100 per night deal for more than 3 nights". Staff were friendly, room was ok, although a bit rundown (air cond., hair dryer and light didn;t work). What we weren't told was minimal cleaning means emptying the rubbish bin. Once we ran out of toilet paper, sugar milk etc. we were told we were supposed to supply our own after the initial supply ran out. Luckily staff were nice enough to give us these things anyway, as there are no shops nearby. Was ok for a bed and shower, just be prepared. More for the business man.

We appreciate your review. Thank you for your praise of our team in providing you with our usual standard of great service. The Nunawading Motor Inn has been a family run motel for the past 30 years, with recent renovations and upgrading of equipment a must. If certain appliances were not functional, I apologise, and those things could have been quite easily fixed, to have made your stay more pleasurable for you.

In regards to our $100 **Limited Service Rate** We only replace towels and take out rubbish daily. We sincerely apologise if you were mislead, by the conditions of this rate.
Once again thank you for your review, we always aim to provide a high standard of product and service and will continue to do so in the future.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

We stayed for three nights over Christmas while visiting family. Check in was friendly and efficient. The room was clean, well appointed and the bed very comfortable. Did not hear a sound from other guests at any time in the three nights and slept extremely well. On Christmas Eve, we realised we were going to be out too late to put our breakfast order in at reception, so I called the hotel. The person who answered my call took the order over the phone and made the arrangements. On Christmas Day, our cooked breakfast arrived at the requested time, with a cheery "Merry Christmas" for good measure. The price for the breakfast was 'ok' - not cheap, but not excessively expensive. The quality of the food was excellent; eggs were perfectly poached and the bacon nicely done. The hotel offers a "limited cleaning service" for mutliple night stays, in that rubbish is taken out, toilet paper replaced, but beds are not made (and we left our towels on the rails, meaning 'we'll use them again'). Check out was again quick and efficient, everyting was correctly itemised. All in all, a very pleasant stay and we will be back.

Room Tip: If you like a strong coffee for breakfast, make sure to tell reception when you order your pot of co...

Hotel in need of a makeover. Lady in charge not very personable and pretty inflexible.Since we only came back in the late evenings and have no need of whole day internet use, they would not allow for customers to paid only what they use but insist that if we wanted even for half and hour we would still be charged full day.
