“overnight stay that wasn't planned.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2014

We went for a drive on Saturday to explore around Marysville and soon found that it was getting late so we decided to stay the night, we found the Tower Motel in the main street and were glad we stayed there, it is within walking distance of the shops and at this time of the year the trees look spectacular with all the autumn colours. The only room available has not been referbed yet but the new rooms looked beautiful. There is not a real lot to do in town at night but the daytime more than makes up for that. The staff were very helpful with suggestions of things to do and see.

After the 2009 bushfires only three businesses (including the tower Motel) and thirty houses were left in this lovely tourist town. It's taken a few years but Marysville IS open for business. The Tower is centrally located has 16 rooms and is one of the few places to stay at in Marysville At the time of writing a family room - sleeps 4) cost $165/night. I suspect people think there's nothing left in Marysville which is wrong. It's recovering slowly and needs people to come back. Only an hour from Melbourne's eastern suburbs, Marysville has coffee shops, a bakery and patisserie, fudge shop, Bruno's wonderful sculpture garden, great kids playground, a farmers market on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month, antique/collectable shop and more! In winter there's snow and cross country skiiing too. The Narbethong and Buxton hotels run buses from Marysville if you're after a more varied sit-down feed as the in-town options are currently limited (pizza shop and chicken shop). The Tower's rooms are being renovated at the moment so it looks like having a rosy future.

Room Tip: There are a number of family rooms that have a queen, king single and potential to put in a trundle...

My mother and I and my 3 children aged 2, 5 and 7 years have just returned from a lovely night away in Marysville, staying at the Tower Motel. David, the owner, was extremely welcoming and helpful - suggesting places to visit and where to eat, even offering to book us a bus to take us out for dinner. We all enjoyed the walk to Steavenson's Falls, the Beauty Trail Nature walk, the gorgeous Gallipoli Park and not forgetting the Lolly Shop! A fulfilling, late lunch at the Bakery was lovely so we were happy to get some supplies from the local supermarket for a light dinner rather than take the kids out which was perfect! Our room was spotlessly clean and beautifully renovated and with two queen beds and enough room for our port a cot as well, we will definitely be coming back. A visit to Marysville is well worth it - a gorgeous town, with such friendly people.

We stopped off at this hotel after a long drive from Mansfield via Woods Point. The motel has recently undergone refurbishment and the rooms are very comfortable and clean. The owners are a lovely couple who really make you very welcome. Breakfast is very reasonably priced and is very generous. Marysville is undergoing a building boom and will look fantastic when all the construction is finished. We visited Steavenson Falls and Bruno's sculpture garden, both looked beautiful after the firestorm of 2009. A great little motel for a weekend away. Highly recommended.

We really enjoyed our 2 night stay at The Tower Hotel - very welcoming owners. Our room was beautiful - recently renovated with a lovely big bath, huge comfy bed and all modern facilities. We visited Marysville for a wedding 15 mins up the road. Such a beautiful setting. We'll be back again to see more of the area. Marysville is a beautiful town to base yourself with bakeries galore and great pubs around for a casual dinner. Buxton Pub - is a must for some local hospitality. See you again, to check out your new deck and have a drink in your lounge at the front of the complex.

I recently stayed here for a night, the owners were very obliging and let a friend leave his vehicle there 3days while we continued a motorcycle tour around Victoria. The room I was given was fantastic with a huge bathtub and equally large shower, everything was squeaky clean and modern, great place to go to for a weekend
