Great place to stay. The owners are helpful, rooms are spacious and clean. Continental breakfast was a bonus and all at a reasonable price. Pub is right next door and supermarket across the street for anything that you might need. I would be happy to stay there again.

Was our 1st time stay but will definitely stay again. Contrary to another review, we found the owners very friendly😀 - can only presume the comment was of the previous owners. We had room 16 which was perfectly clean, a huge size with a very comfy bed. Free internet was offered. If you book direct with the motel a very... More

Booked for the Saturday night after 300km journey from Portland. Parking a bit tight but ok for our compact car. Found the side gate to the hotel for dinner very convenient and the Woolworths Supermarket across the road also handy. Will stay again lovely clean sheets felt new with a crisp sheen and free Wifi with a password worked very... More

Very tidy and spacious rooms. Had everything you needed in a nice outlay along with friendly staff. Nothing was a problem to them so for that I thank them. Wifi was also very reliable which can let a lot of places down. Car park is a bit tight but is no issue if you do not have a large vehicle.... More

Extremely clean rooms but owners very sour and rude . If you enjoy a chat and a beer with friends don't book in here you will be told to be quite . (Others guests also came and joined us for a beer and chat) We had in total 6 rooms (6 familys) booked for 2 nights .

Great booking in. Welcomed by friendly owners. Rooms older but lovely soft furnishings, soft fluffy towels. Way better than the nana style of most motels. Treat yourself to continental breakfast! Worth it to get family on the go in the morning. A real gem of a place to spend the night or be near all the great things Geelong has... More

Very friendly hosts. Room was very clean and presentable. Bed had crisp sheets, smelling fresh. As an 'economy' priced room, this had everything you would want or need. We never felt we should be somewhere else. On a return trip to Geelong, we would be more than happy to stay at the same accommodation - no need to say "oh,... More

Don't know anything about the proprietors who were here before, but the couple running this place now are doing a fantastic job. Plenty of parking outside the rooms, Safeway just across the road and the Great Western Hotel just next door for some decent pub food. We had room number 17, which was massive with 2 singles and a double... More

We stayed here just the other night and had a great stay. We were in room 4 - a spa room- and we were very happy :) the room was huge, immaculately clean, nicely decorated, and the bed and pillows were comfy. The spa was really deep and definitely comfortable for two, and never ran out of hot water, which... More
