Are we privileged? Indeed! What a lovely quaint motel in Maldon. Deb & Chris were perfect 'hosts' all the way; from check in to check out. Verdict? Will definitely return. Hospitality tops. Only wish we had more time in Maldon.

3 couples stayed 1 night after visiting Bendigo because we couldn't find acccommodation there. We weren't disappointed. The rooms are dated but that is part of its charm. Bed comfy but firm, great hot shower, tea & coffee and lovely warm room. Garden is just gorgeous and staff very friendly.

We stayed at Maldons Eaglehawk Motel on Saturday 21 May. We had 2 rooms booked and both were of a similar good standard. The motel has a lovely homely feel, warm comfortable beds and good heaters. Each room has its own small verandah area which would have been lovely on a warmer day to sit with a wine and enjoy... More

The owners, Deb & Chris were so friendly & welcoming, this is a quaint little motel that fits into the surrounding area extremely well. It felt like you were staying in a miners cottage from 100 years ago, we loved it. The nightly rate was very reasonable! Both of the owners are author's in their own right & a copy... More

We really enjoyed our stay. Lovely hosts with extensive knowledge of local history. Clean, comfortable and well appointed rooms. Even though the motel was full it was quiet and peaceful. Pleasant and leafy surroundings. Excellent value for money. We would definitely stay here again.

Staying at this quaint Motel was exactly what we were hoping for when I booked our one night couples package. We arrived to Champagne and chocolates on a tray with a cut rose (presumably from the Motels charming cottage garden) and was just perfect for valentines weekend. I tend to prepare myself for some degree of false advertising when it... More

What a lovely motel! Rooms look onto a courtyard of roses with a pool for those warm evenings. Love the decor with a floral quilt and patchwork over throw on a beautifully comfortable iron bed head. Owners were helpful and price was very reasonable. A 10 minute walk into town for an evening meal made for an excellent stay.

Thank you for your review. The roses are struggling at the moment because of the heat, but we are hoping the rains last night will have freshened them all up.

We have just spent two nights at the Eaglehawk for a visit to the Victorian Goldfields Railway. The rooms are small but very comfortable and the bed provided a great night's sleep. Cooked breakfast was not available as the kitchen was being renovated. My main criticism was the very loud "window rattler" air conditioner.
