“Very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

This older style motel was extremely spotless. The owner and staff very pleasant and eager to assist in any way to help improve their service if at all possible. Good location, nice and quiet overnight. Happily allowed two cars to park for one room. Will return again.

I would find it hard to see a low star rating on this property. At

Firstly, the hosts Bobbie and Rita are hospitality enthusiasts and love providing a high level of customer service.

When I first arrived at the Central Highlands Motor Inn I was greeted by Rita who opened the door for me and delivered such a warm welcome which you won't ever get from most of the usual high end 5 star hotel chains.

This is a 3.5 star hotel which does not mean it's of low standard. They are one of the cleanest places I've stayed at and are currently renovating rooms to try and keep up with the modern culture of the motel industry.

I've reviewed a lot of placed to date and know what is of value in regards to ratings and offerings.

The facts are: Comfy bed, TV with DVD, very long workbench for the business traveller, rain shower, reliable hot water, lounge, plenty of room and best of all - any reasonable request is no challenge for Rita and Bobbie.

Bobbie and Rita are hard workers and have regulars who stay with the CHMI as they know it's a reliable Motel.

Book in early if you can as there are only 2 Motels in town. Obviously the CHMI would be the first choice and I would be happy to answer any questions a fellow tripadvisor may ask, otherwise Bobbie and Rita would happily take your call and compensate your needs.

Rita and Bobbie, thank you very much for your hospitality. It is refreshing to have such a devoted team of staff who actually care for their customers. I wish you well in the future and I'm sure your business will be prosperous.

Right in town, near to all shops/cafes etc. The hosts were friendly and when we had some minor issues with the wireless internet and heater, the gentleman came over to the room promptly and was very polite and professional.

The room was clean. neat, and large. No problems at all.

There arent many choices of motels in Kyneton. This motel is very basic and overpriced. The location is good as it is in walking distance of the town centre. As is not that unusual in country areas, when staying on a long weekend you are forced to either stay for two nights or pay for two nights. We really only wanted to stay one night and the motel was not fully booked on the nights we were there!

Recently had to attend a function in kyneton and looked for some accommodation. well it is very lacking with only 2 motels in town and no great raps on either to hear about. We stayed at the Central Highlands and whilst not in the four star bracket it was a pleasant surprise. The room is small and only caters for a double but does have a fold out single sofa. The bed was good, the room was clean and comfortable and warm on a cold night. Only short distance from shops so can walk to shops. I think the host could be a little less " casual and pretend aussie " but having said that they were also very accomodating, pleasant, nice and very helpful. Would stay there again no problems at all. Also the units were quiet.

The motel is nothing flash but clean and we were able to walk to the shops and enjoyed our three days in Kyneton. The weekend deal made it a very reasonable stay.
