The room was tiny supposed to have a kitchenette didn't have it. It was booked for three people and only supplied with 2 towels no bath mat no hand towel. The room was freezing the air con didn't even make the room warm. The beds kept sliding every time you moved. The shower was like a very fine mist disgusting.... More

Great service and sized room but Venetian blinds over bed was broken so people could see in over bed, dust everywhere on walls and ledges and a number of daddy long legs above head. Convenient location but took a while to find the entrance off main road.

Travelling back to Victoria with a small dog, we booked this motel purely because it was pet friendly.we found the room to be extremely clean and comfortable. We also had a trailer, but parking was no problem. Had a great night sleep, despite being close to main road , it was very quiet.would highly recommend this cute, retro style motel,... More

Calling in late for a room I wondered wether I was revisiting the fifties when I arrived but reception was efficient and the room was very pleasantly renovated and furnished as well as being equipped with modern appliances. You don't many Motels with polished floor boards these days but it all adds up to a nice change from stark brick... More

We posted a five star review about the Koala Tree Motel a couple of years ago and we're delighted to be able to write in this follow up that things are now even better. James and Miranda are still there. We can't imagine the motel without them :) All the good things we mentioned before are the same: sincerely pet... More

Stayed here for 2 nights, first off our room wasn't cleaned when he gave us our key, we asked for it to be cleaned and it was cleaned straight away. When we went in the shower was dripping, our bed was made but had hair on it, we had no fresh towels and the toilet was leaking. Upon further inspection... More

If you want to write an anonymous revenge review, for whatever reason, it's probably a good idea to start with what is likely...not complete fabrication ex nilo. For example, let's start with what is a weak but plausible start. You have arrived before check-in time and have demanded to check-in right now. This happens sometimes with people who don't seem...

The room had been booked for me by my company so had no idea what to expect and couldn't pre-read any reviews. The place from the outside looked VERY tired, which wasn't heartening, but luckily the rooms had been (mostly) updated inside. The tap in the shower (Room 2 by the way) fell off everytime you touched it and the... More

Basil, hey, that's funny. Never been stereotyped like that before. Have you never looked at what it is you are signing when you check into a hotel or motel? Ever? Really? Take a look next time, seasoned and worldly traveller and be amazed at what you've been missing. No, surely not. You must just be lying. You couldn't have signed... More

A little dated from the outside and easy to miss as you drive by as you don't see the entry until you have passed it, but inside was updated, clean and tidy. Having the dog was no problem, although there was only one grassed area in front of the pool entry - not ideal for a toilet area. But that... More

This Motel came to the rescue as we had to make an emergency stop in Pt Macquarie on the way to Brisbane. I was so relieved to hear they accepted pets and had a vacancy for us for the night. The room was spacious and clean and very comfortable for the three of us. I'm so glad to hear more... More

My dog & I had a great night - clean & comfortable and very obliging when asked for assistance regarding where to eat and providing cutlery & crockery. Closer to good Thai take away too & easy walk to the main city centre.
