Overall a really nice room, with plenty of space and really nice presentation - it felt just like a room at a BnB - comfortable, clean and tidy. Just myself as was in the middle of travelling around the state for business so needed a good quiet place and this was great. Lovely owner - very friendly. Only issue -... More

We needed a place to stay overnight on a recent trip to the Golden centre of Victoria, we could not get into a hotel in the major towns in the area, but we found whispering gums motel in Newstead had rooms, so we decided to stay. We found a very comfortable room with friendly hosts who made our stay enjoyable.... More

We stayed 4 nights, while we visited friends in the surrounding area. Cameron was so helpful and welcoming. Our room was warmed for us. A chocolate bar waited on the bed. The room was clean and comfortable. Full-sized soap-bars were supplied - first time we've seen that. Inexpensive and quiet. We will be back as often as we can. Joy... More

Wonderful motel. Clean, tidy room & with an excellent bathroom & shower. Very relaxed atmosphere & very good value. Cameron the proprietor was the kindest host. You will experience proper country hospitality, Highly Recommended (I'm an experienced world traveller, have stayed in various expensive & fancy places & the Whispering Gums is right up there with the best of them!).

We stayed for 1 night Australia Day weekend in January to attend the Newstead Folk Music Festival. When I booked it I thought it wouldn't be very good because the price was cheaper than I expected to pay especially considering that it was a long weekend. But what a surprise we got, lovely setting in nice gardens. Very comfortable, great... More

Steyed overnight April 2015. Friendly staff with a great attitude and a immaculately presented room with a recently renovated bathroom. Very comfortable. Quality TV and DVD in the room, and little touches like the quality complimentary coffee make this place a great place to stay. Highly recommended
