Fortunately a one night stop for business in the sand belt region of Melbourne. A Motel really, with outside rooms, a bar and decent breakfast room. Did the job I guess. The rooms are a bit worn out but basically adequate, the bar is OK too. Beers on draught and a TV if you are on your own. Breakfast is...

We chose a menu of Prosciutto Wrapped Chicken Breast or Grilled Tasmanian Salmon. Sweets were a choice of Rum Panna Cotta or Baked New York Cheesecake. The meals we could not fault although maybe a bit on...

On a one-night visit to Melbourne, this was a handy location on Nepean Highway and close to Southland Shopping Centre. We had a basic queen room upstairs near the middle of the property, so we were away from the traffic. This property is really for business people and is not a holiday resort in the least. The price was right,...

My daughter was unwell during the night and reception couldn't have been more helpful. Rooms are good quality and at affordable prices too in a convenient location. Gym and pool are good bonuses also.

This motel has all the essentials. The rooms are a little outdated, but are clean and functional. There is a small gym, good restaurant, and small bar on site. The staff are very friendly, professional and helpful. Plenty of car parking. Recommend this place to stay if you're staying short term, passing through or have business in the area. I...

Needed to stay locally so served its purpose. Staff very friendly and helpful but rooms could be cleaner, lots of dust on plugs etc which ruined the overall experience. Restaurant not cheap but served very good food. Pool small but again this is not a holiday hotel. In summary it does what it says on the tin. We needed a...

Very nice helpful staff. Beautiful room and setting. Quiet despite being off the main road, but the rooms are "secluded" within an inner courtyard. Rooms were spacious and amenities nice. Location is not as convenient as we had thought but it was not a big problem but did add to our driving time.

The place was nothing like the photos that were shown upon booking. We were put in a house down the street where the the kitchen was virtually bare, garden neglected and light switches were in very unusual places (which is not very helpful in the dark) Not worth the price we paid!
