“A gem in the desert”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

this motel is amazing. It's like a city 'upmarket' hotel. The rooms are creatively set out with fittings that are more reminiscent of Melbourne boutique hotels that a country motel. The staff were very helpful and nothing was too difficult or a problem. Free Nespresso pods were a bonus. It was hot outside (40) but the aircon worked well. What can I say about the bed... it was the best sleep I have had in a motel or hotel for years. So, good that my wife wants one !
We will definitely be back again.

Fantastic motel, Grant and Anthony can't do enough for you. Beds and and rooms are glam and comfy, wi-fi worked well and coffee machine is a definite bonus. Grant even gave me a lift to the mill down the road in his car as a favour, which was much appreciated.
They also have lovely dogs, we will bring our greyhound next time to play!

Discovered this gem of a motel while up in Morwell for friends birthday. Grant and Anthony provided amazing customer service and the room was extremely clean with all modern facilities. Thank you so much for your hospitality and can't wait to visit again. Regards Maree and Dominic

I imagined a motel in morwell to be 3 star at best, but was pleasantly surprised with this gem of a motel. Very clean, inspiring decor and very comfortable bed. Great little touches from the coffee machine, microwave, full size fridge through to the quality soap and toiletries (loved the toaster guys). In the garden, herbs and vegetables abound making it a stand out from the run of the mill gardens you normally find at motels. The service was outstanding, Warm, welcoming and friendly.

We wanted something clean and safe and modern that was pet friendly, well we got more than we hoped for.
Great fitout in the room, really good water pressure, superclean and lovely , modern appliances.
We were really very pleasantly surprised, puts a lot of places in Melbourne to shame.
Plenty of floor space for us and our two huge doggies.
Very private and not noisy even though it was full.
The upper first floor was great as it gave you more outside area to have the dogs outside the door and still able to keep them near.
Even though it was on a main road there was no fear at all of anything happening to our dogs or any issues crossing the road to the massive expanse of grassed garden areas to walk the dogs.
Really lovely and we had brekky as well, real milk in a jug brought to us. We were given secret tips on the best places to get dinner as well and the Indian restaurant did not disappoint.
There was four rooms of us and so we phone through a huge order so we could pick it up and it was completed in a timely fashion and delicious.wonderful experience , we will definitely come again. thanks for the great stay Morwell motel you get our 5 star award.
kind regards

Paul and Catherine ( owners of two Bernese Mountain dogs Sherman and Simba.)

Room Tip: first floor rooms are best if you have dogs.
