Our hosts John and Suzanne were like family, welcoming us with warm and friendly handshakes. We were on the return journey from Mildura to Melbourne on motorbikes. This motel can definitely be added to the motorbike friendly list as John offered to park the bikes in the shed if we wished. The rooms are beautifully appointed and very comfortable, including reverse cycle A/C, large flatscreen TV with DVD player. Outside the rooms is a large, relaxing open garden area where our K9 host "digger" entertained us with his personality.We arrived late in town and wanted a bottle of wine, and were delighted to learn that John and Suzanne also hold a wine liquor licence and promote a range of local wines at cellar door prices. Should you wish to cook for yourself, there is an IGA and butcher in town within walking distance and the motel features a fully set up barbecue area - if not the Avoca Hotel was highly recommended by John and Suzanne and they did not disappoint! The meals and service were fantastic and very reasonably priced. For breakfast John and Suzanne's second recommendation was also a fantastic one! The Olive and Lavender Store. We had the most delicious breakfast, including "city quality" coffee and hot chocolate whilst relaxing in the lavender and olive garden - definitely check this place out, even if you are just travelling through. Overall the Avoca Motel is our choice for an overnight or longer stay in Avoca.
