“GREAT VALUE”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

Thank you Steve. A great location, friendly, helpful staff, comfortable room. Nothing to complain about. View of mountains from just outside room were great. The help offered by Steve, the owner, was outstanding. Breakfast Was also good. For a budget motel this was outstanding.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013 via mobile

My wife, 6 year old and I spent two nights here and were presently surprised that a budget priced motel can offer everything.
The rooms were very modern and equipped with digital TV and excellent heating for winter nights and The bed was comfy. Free DVDs to watch was also a bonus more than a foxtel selection.
Lastly the price was the cheapest on offer in mt beauty.
The only faults were that the free wifi wasn't strong enough to reach our room, the BBQ area looked unloved and a childrens swing could replace the owners boat left on the lawn.
All these negatives were the reason we didn't give another star.

I thoroughly recommend the Bogong Moth as a base to see Mt Bogong, or even checking out Falls Creek, or as we did, the autumn leaves (which happen a bit before Bright). This is comfy and reasonably priced...and friendly and helpful owner.
But even better is the chance to have dinner at the best restaurant in Mt Beauty directly across the road, Flour + Water (better than many Melbourne restaurants) without having to drive.

Room Tip: All rooms are good, even closest to the road is not a problem, as there is very little traffic, espe...

I stayed there in October 2012 [this is a 'better late than never' review] for two nights while riding to the Australian Mototrcycle GP. It's a great little motel on the edge of town. Excellent hosts, great breakfast, all the ususal facilities in good order [recently refurbished].

The motel is motorcycle friendly, though not a noisy location.

The only point to note, mainly for motorbike riders, is that the parking area is deepish medium size pebbles, so you need to think about how you'll park, and how you'll depart.

No a big problem ... just something to consider before you 'dive in'.

Town facilities are about a K away ... walking distance to the nice Pub & several cafes / bistros.

Highly recommended ... I will be returning.

Dropped in for an overnight stay. Older style, smallish motel with nicely up-to-date rooms - newish bed, furnishings & renovated bathroom with generous sized, tiled walk-in shower. Outdoor lawn area with chairs & table through back glass doors overlooking mountain views. Flatscreen TV, bikkies, tea & plunger coffee (superior Queen room). Bring your own milk unless you don't mind those little UHT containers. Has modern aircon system.

One of the best reasons to stay here is the pizza cafe (Flour + Water) which is directly across the road.

Had a couple of minor problems but not deal breakers. Hotel offers free wifi (500 MB; can pay for more) but we couldn't access it via ethernet or either of the Wifi networks, even though I am quite tech savvy. Also, booked a Queen + single bed room online but got a room with Queen only, so you might want to clarify this when you check in.

Would be happy to stay here again. It's a lovely, good value hotel in prettily landscaped grounds with friendly hosts and a very relaxing atmosphere.

Room Tip: The rooms are arranged in a single line. Ask for the end one if you want a little more privacy or qu...
