My partner and I recently stayed here and thought it was great. The room had just been renovated and presented very well, it was well equipped with everything we needed. We even hired a tandem bike which was heaps of fun and made the most of the rail trail. Great location easy to find and right next to the pub... More

We stayed a week in newly refurbished rooms, they were very clean and fresh the proprietor was very helpful and kind, great location being next door to a fantastic pub with terrific meals, also a beautiful place for a bike ride. Found the people very friendly. Highly recommend a visit 👌🏼

Three of us stayed in one room with a queen and single. We had an older room with dated amenities but the room was very clean. There's no pretences about this place - it gets the job done comfortably.

Friendly service, but the rooms need a good airing. Windows are sealed closed, no opening windows in bathroom. Whilst room was generally clean it smelt rather unpleasant, due to lack of air movement. Would not be keen to stay again.

Unfortunately we purchased the motel in July 2015 and three rooms had sealed windows. We have made many improvements since purchasing the motel and intend to continue with upgrades. We are currently seeking advice on getting the windows unsealed. We do however, have split system climate control for guest comfort. We have other rooms available with opening windows. Many motels/hotels... More

We stayed here one night when no accommodation was available in Inverloch. The room was reasonably spacious, the bed comfortable, the bathroom huge but several things contributed to the motel receiving a 'very average' score. I had emailed advising we would be arriving very late but got no reply. So I rang that evening to advise we would arrive around... More

First impressions were not great, could smell cigarette smoke when approaching office and hotel appears a bit run down, But, rooms are very spacious and clean and we were upgraded to a spa suite at no cost, we didn't even request this so it was a nice surprise. Good location in town. Stayed for one night on the way to... More

Viv at the front desk was lovely. It is definitely an older hotel and budget orientated but clean and tidy, bed was good and the bathroom had been renovated in the last year or so. There was a band playing at the pub next door but they were quiet by 10.00pm. I paid about $110 and felt it was money... More

The downright concerning: 1. While I was away at the nearby pub for a few hours, I left the bathroom fan on. On return, I was shocked to find the entire room entrapped in a fetor of stale tobacco. I'm not sure how the fan helped summon the odours, but it was uninhabitable (unless you're into that kind of thing,... More
