The room was clean and fairly spacious. The staff where friendly and accomodating when plans had to be changed. Good location for traveling through as it is located on the highway, given the location it was quiet. I couldnt ask for anything more with the price we paid.

We have stayed here twice recently. First time we had a room near the front which is close to the main road for $85. Room recently upgraded. Bed comfortable and electric blankets, but only one side working. Shower didn't have a lot of pressure and took a bit to get some hot water, shampoo soap supplied as well. Free bottles... More

This is your atypical hotel motel of the Australian country. Fairly old looking from the outside but comfortable and slightly modernised inside. Good sized rooms especially for family but the bathroom is small and very narrow. Staff were pleasant and comfortable sleep even though the train is very loud. Continental breakfast was good in the morning. WiFi was not working.

We arrived on a cold early evening. Our heater didn't work properly so were thankful there was a radiator in the room in support of the main heater. Found the wiring of the electrical appliances a bit of a worry. Bed not comfortable, wifi not great. Didn't appreciate seeing a dog being lead from a room further down, and wondered... More

We stayed here as we were driving from Adelaide through to Bendigo. We were arriving quite late and the owner arranged our keys for collection and also the heater left on in our room, which we were very grateful for seeing as it was freezing! The accomodation is very clean and great value for money. I would stay here again.

The Motel has moderately updated rooms which offer all the basic comforts. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The location is great with most of the fast food outlets only a 2 minute walk and the Victoria Hotel 3 minutes away. The excellent Bistro at the Victoria offers charge back to the Smerdon. The Horsham Club is a pleasant... More

This was a return trip to stay at Smerdon Lodge, it was after 6.30pm before we arrived on a cold night to find the heater had been turned on warming the room and the light had also been turned on. So we can’t ask for better than that for service from the owner. Our room was super clean, comfy bed... More

I spent a week here a while ago, whilst on Business and Craig and his team are one of the most hospitable crew you will ever come across. I have read some of the reviews that are negative on here and all I can say is that some people should either stay home or book into 5 star Hotels! The... More
