“Great weekend away!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2011

We had a great weekend away last week. Close to dalesford, 1 hour to Bendigo.
THe rooms were in excellent condition, clean and everything we wanted. We indulged with a fresh cooked full breakfast both mornings and it was hot and delicious. Thanks John and Gillian for making our short break complete.

I would like to thank the owners of the Motor Inn at Hepburn springs for their warm and inviting welcome. The rooms were exceptional, spacious, clean and very comfortable.
The owners were very obliging and helpful in with local information about popular tourist sites and restaurants.
I would recommend this accomodation to couples, and families.

Room Tip: The room we stayed in was spacious and clean. We enjoyed the spa.

This is the most inhospitable place I've ever stayed. Upon arrival, the owner shouted from the window that we couldn't park in the car park as it was for motel guests only. When we explained we were in fact motel guests, he harrumphed back indoors without an apology or a greeting. It went downhill from there - the owners, two of them, maintained a watching vigil on our every movement, literally peering through the venetian blinds to keep an eye on us. It was creepy. We learned later that our friends, who we were joining in the family suite that had been booked had been burst in upon a few times during their stay the day before. I couldn't wait to leave. The room was fine - clean and tidy. We were not offered breakfast or any tourist information at all, and were shuttled out of the hotel with indecent haste, however, the owner did reluctantly print out a feedback form for us.

The Palais next door, however, is a fantastic venue, and the reason for our stay. They understood the concept of hospitality, and welcomed us with open arms, with a wonderful meal, excellent wine list and beautiful acoustic entertainment. Thumbs up to The Palais - don't miss this attraction if you are in Daylesford, but come prepared to sleep in the car rather than stay at this "hotel".

HepburnMotel, Owner at Hepburn Springs Motor Inn, responded to this review, July 22, 2011
We appreciate any valid criticism and do our utmost to please ALL patrons. Please note these facts; that there are no venetion blinds on this property. The suggestion sheets are placed in the rooms and can be seen easily on bench and are not normally available from reception to take away. It has not been returned? There is also NO carpark for The Palais Patrons and we should not be expected to provide parking or toilets for them and have our patrons park on the street. It was absolute nonsense to suggest we went into a room other than to service it. We also suggest that when booking a room for one single it is not expected or accepted policy that this room becomes a revolving door to anyone- given the key wanting to eat, change or have late night drinks and create a nuisance to our other valued patrons. I agree with you that the Palais is a great venue and we have resolved the issue of loud music and a reasonable time to finish. Perhaps after a few hours sleep we are not the most hospitable people, however there are many other days. May I strongly suggest when sleeping in your car next time it is not in our carpark.

11pm its be quite or get out policy so you can't sit around in the garden chatting, even though the Patrons leaving the Palais nextdoor are noisey, they need to have a more positive approach towards customers.

Centrally situated next to Palais bar and restaurant. A good well priced motel, with free laundry. Free cooked eggs for breakfast if you stay 2 nights. Fabulous bar and restaurant next door - which has a good value locals meal on Thursday night (and you don't have to be local). Internet access $10 a day but incredibly weak signal.
