“Great motel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

We stayed here for a night recently after a visit to Philip Island. The standard of the room was excellent, much better than most of the motels we stayed in during our month in Australia. We checked in late and were greeted by a friendly welcome.

Would have no hesitation in recommending to anyone who needs somewhere to stay in the area.

The bed was very comfortable.

I stayed in Morwell for 1 night on business. Check in was a breeze, and my room was a great surprise compared to the rest of the town. It was modern, highly functional, and very comfortable. The A/C cooled the room quickly and kept it that way on a warm summer night. I could have lived in this room for a week with the full size fridge and microwave. There is an Aldi grocery store next door, so you really can live at this place. The bed was the most comfortable of any that I slept on during my 2 week trip to Australia. The staff were friendly and efficient. I would definitely stay here again if I ever get to Morwell again.

At very last minute, my mum and I were trying to hunt down some reasonably priced accommodation that was close to the nearby University. WE FOUND HEAVEN. Staff were all very helpful and friendly, a brilliant coffee machine in our room, enough space for the both of us to spread our luggage out, newly renovated room with a gorgeous bathroom, AND THE BEST BED WE HAVE EVER SLEPT IN. If ever we find ourselves needing accommodation in Morwell, we would defiantly stay here again!

We are glad that we checked trip adviser on this one. We, too, made a late reservation and were fortunate enough to get a room. The friendly staff showed us to our logdings and once we opened the door could not believe how well this place had been refurbished.
Clean, modern and detailed, down to the appliances. Nespresso machine and the option of instant or tea was great. Full size fridge, microwave, new toaster and kettle suited our needs. The breakfast option looked well priced and a good selection of items.
The Kingsize bed was nearly as good as our own and the pillows were fantastic. Bathroom facilities were excellent.

We would definitely recommend this motel. Value for money with all the trimmings.

We will be trying your Orbost Motel too...

What a surprise to find such a great motel in the country! The owner was really friendly and nothing was too much trouble, we were even told we could bring our dog next time if we wanted! So great to be able to stay in a really nice place with our spoilt poodle. The room was as good or better than any we have ever stayed in, and the bed was so comfortable. The linen, towels and toiletries were spot on and the little extras like free wifi, the ipod dock and nespresso machine were the icing on the cake. Aldi next door was a bonus as we were able to buy supplies for the next days travelling.

What more can I say, If your travelling to Morwell stay here!
Great beds, very modern decor a huge 42" tv and a real coffee machine.
The owners have spent a lot of time and money getting this place right. It is great value for money and it's not overpriced like some other motels in the area i will not mention.
I liked so much I stayed an extra night because it was so comfortable and clean.
When you arrive the owner takes you to your room and shows you how the features work and will answer any questions you may have on the surrounding area. Don't get that service anywhere.
Stay here you will not want to go home.

Out of all the Motels that we have stayed in on our Road Trips, the Morwell Motel has been one of the best. We were really impressed with the King Room that we were Upgraded to. The Bed, Furniture, Appliances and Room Design were Top Quality. To receive Nespresso Coffee Machines in each room earned our Tick of Approval, (we did not have to use the Instant Coffee Sachets that you receive in every other Motel). To be greeted by Max the dog in the morning was a delight. Only a 5 minute walk to the Chinese Restaurant. We were tired and weary on arrival, it was a pleasant gesture to have the Owner walk us to our room and immediately put the Air Conditioner on for us.

Room Tip: Select the King Room - Ground Floor - Impressive & Comfortable.
