I stayed just one night but wish I could have stayed longer. I was warmly welcomed and the room was excellent. It was very spacious. The bed and pillows were so comfortable. The bathroom was very big, and included a huge shower. The room was very clean and there were some Foxtel channels available free which was great. A very... More

Motel is located on a main but not too busy road; about a 600m/10-15 walk walk into the town or a few minutes by car. Good points: friendly and welcoming owners; wide car parking space for each unit; room size was quite large with plenty of space for luggage items; bathroom was also bigger than most motels (shower cubicle was...

Nestled in the forrest just off the Calder Hwy is a hidden gem. Im not shore if it was the location, the atmosphere, the spacious well appointed rooms or was it Samantha & John Turners warm friendly nature. What ever it was, my wife and I, felt welcome. There is no substitute for country charm.

I stayed there with 2 other adults and a 12 year old. Cost $360 for 2 nights for 1 room. The room could have been cleaner. No toilet paper. Manager was very approachable. Best thing was there were provisions available for a cooked breakfast.

We had a group of 25 people, some golfers and other singles. Rooms were great, spacious, comfortable beds, big showers with lots of hot water. The best part was the owner, John, who made us a cooked breakfast each morning in the large kitchen with barbeque facilities.Nothing was too much trouble for him to make us comfortable and with such...

Stayed here with friends in a family room. We both brought along our little pooches who slept in the bathroom. Room was spacious and fairly modern (for a little country motel). We didn't get the chance to stay for breakfast. Macedon is cute with some nice restaurants and a good pub. Only a 20 minute drive to Kyneton and Woodend.... More

Thank you so much for your feedback. You guys just rock. Just finished the last natural timber bench top and I am so pleased with the way it has put that cabin feel into the rooms.

Arrived from Mildura just before 8pm...John checked us in within minutes allowing us to dine at Ida Red a gem of a wood fired pizzeria! Clean room, huge shower, ample hot water and open breakfast facility for all before leaving. Hubby made eggs and toast all inclusive of room charge. Great service John we will return!
