For $113 a night, shower has no pressure and cold, shower head too short for tall people. Had to buy own soap, shampoo and conditioner...for $113 a night this place sucks. Go somewhere else. Anywhete but here.

Quiet, clean and comfortable - what more could you ask for? This is a very convenient motel very close to down town with a great pub just across the road. The owners are very obliging and a good breakfast is available either in your room or in the dining room.

We stayed for 3 nights (3 couples) and found the motel nice and central to town and the owners very accomodating. We used the BBQ and then we're able to use the Lotus room so we could all share our meal in comfort. The owners could not have been more friendly or helpful and the rooms were clean and the... More

I loved this little Motel. The location is good and the owners were great to deal with. We stayed 3 nights and had a cooked breakfast which was quite good. The rooms are small but roomy enough considering the price. I was really impressed with the cleanliness and the presentation of the rooms which have obviously been updated not to... More

The rooms have clearly had an upgrade and refurb in recent years which is great. Mick he owner is very friendly and up for a welcoming chat which is nice after a few hours in the car. Very comfortable stay and great value. We stayed in a family room which was great albeit it a little small in the main... More

My 8yo son and I stayed here for one night on our way back from visiting an elderly relative in Rochester. It was a very comfortable room, and relatively quiet. Lovely clean room with basic amenities - but everything we needed. Easy access into the centre of town. Staff very helpful and friendly. Would stay there again. Great place from... More

We pulled in to this motel as it was across the road from a tidy hotel, and although at first glance the exterior of the motel might not be everything you desired- once inside it was terrific! The room we had -had recently been refurbished and was lovely. I think this motel is value for money with the added bonus... More

This was a good base for our two nights and one day in Bendigo designed to catch up with the Marilyn Monroe exhibition. Sue was very helpful with advice about where to eat and how to access the range of places we wanted to visit. We were upgraded to unit 20, a spotless, well-laid out room. Our only disappointments, and... More

This was a return visit for us and we were not disappointed. Whilst the motel is from an earlier vintage, the owners Sue and Mick are progressively renovating the rooms. Our room had been tastefully renovated and when we opened the door it had a very pleasant fragrance inside. The room was very clean and comfortable. There was a small... More

I stayed here on Valentine's Day weekend with my partner and was pretty impressed with the room. It's a pretty standard motor inn but the rooms are quite spacious (for a motor inn), the bed and pillows were comfortable, everything was clean and it was quiet despite been on a main road. Probably the only downside was how far it... More
