“Beautifully renovated, great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013 via mobile

We were the first couple to stay in the refurbished King room no. 4 & we were pleasantly surprised by the quality and detail of the reno. From the comfy King bed,the deep bath to soak in,austar t.v and terrific hospitality from our hosts, all I can say is,this is the nicest motel we have ever stayed in. Great local cafes are a short stroll away and we really enjoyed the free bus pickup/return to the Narbethong pub for an excellent highly recommended meal.

Spent a long weekend with my 3 brothers and father in Marysville motorcycle riding. The Motel was perfect, neat, clean and quiet. Right in the middle of town. They had great little common room perfect for a drink before dinner. They booked a bus for us to dinner both nights and went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. Many thanks for a great weekend

I saw a deal for this motel and after checking out the tripadvisor reviews, I jumped on the deal for a couple's 2 night stay. I'm so glad I did!

The owners, Dave and Leanne, are very hospitable and did their best to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. We enjoyed the wine, chocolates and extras that came with our deal. I also ordered a BBQ hamper for a picnic lunch the next day. They packed everything we needed (meat, salad, drinks, cooking & eating utensils) to cook at one of the free BBQ areas in the park. It was a delicious and hassle-free way to enjoy BBQ lunch.

We stayed in one of the not-yet-renovated rooms because the motel was fully booked out. However, it was still comfortable. I was able to take a peek into one of the newly renovated rooms and it looks wonderful! Modern and comfortable - I look forward to using it the next time I'm in the area. I also enjoyed sitting and chatting in the sunny courtyard area. And there's a "The Red Room" - another area for guests to sit and chat, eat or just mingle (this is especially handy when other businesses have closed for the night). I know that even more improvements and additions are coming up!

All in all, we really enjoyed our stay at The Tower and I know Dave and Leanne are just going to keep finding ways to delight guests and make it even better.

Swung by Marysville for a night. What a wonderful idea. The motel was stylish, classy and very welcoming. The shops and restaurants were everything we needed.

Marysville is rising from the ashes, more beautiful and worth a visit than before.

The motel is located right in the centre of Marysville. Bakery, pub, patisserie and fabulous views right on the doorstep. Easy access to walking, biking and sightseeing. Just over an hour from Melbourne. The perfect spot for a relaxing weekend away

My wife and I just stayed at the Tower Motel in Marysville on our trip to see how this previously magical little town was regenerating after the tragic fires on Black Saturday, February 2009. We were awestruck with the sense of optimism and excitement evident in the residents and the town itself. A prime example of this was proprietor David at the Tower Motel. David was previously the owner of 5 businesses in Marysville before the fire engulfed them all that fateful night and destroyed his livlehood.
The Tower was one of only 3 businesses left in town and David and his wife purchased it some 3 years ago and are in the process of fully renovating and modernising it. Our room was just completed and was very comfortable indeed and very modern. David even organized for a bus to pick us up and bring us home from our evening meal at the Black Spur Hotel. Terrific country hospitality and lovely place to stay. Highly recommended. Trevor and Moyra McArdle, Ocean Grove.

Room Tip: All renovated rooms are excellent.

We stayed overnight at the Tower Motel as a base to complete some amazing walks and see the town of Maysville again. The owner David had some great ideas of what we could do and we had no trouble filling our two days away. The motel is undergoing very tastelful renovations and even though we had an older room, it was still tasteful and very clean with everything we needed. The town itself has some beautiful shops and the most amazing playground for all ages (our kids are between 10 and 14) and they spent hours there. The falls were beautiful with lush regrowth and I thought with the new platforms and tracks it was better than ever. A night trip to see it lit is unmissable) We visited the crystal shop just out of Marysville and had the most amazing tour. The friendliness and openness of the locals made this trip for us. We will be telling all of our friends, it's well and truly time to go back!
