We recently had a family get together in Maldon and very much enjoyed our stay at the Eaglehawk Motel. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and I think I may have had the best nights sleep I've ever had away from home. The rooms are full of old world charm and it was a delight to be able to...

My partner and I had a beautiful 1 night stay. We would definitely come back for another visit . It is a great place to stay if for those who love and appreciate Australian history. Our room was nicely decorated and very clean.

Set in gorgeous gardens, the Eaglehawk is inviting and tranquil. There is parking at the rear of your room and two access points. The rooms are comfortable, clean and well appointed, with many homely touches. Lovely linen and great pillows! These are not sterile standard motel rooms but rather fall into the 'quaint and charming' category. Will definitely return.

What a beautiful motel, full of olde time warmth and charm with a character all its own in a very pretty setting. So easy to sit back and relax and just enjoy the day ... The rooms are so cosy, our bed had a patchwork quilt, the "table" was the frame of an old treddle sewing machine and the bathroom... More

If you are looking for something different and not the usual modern hotel then this could be the place for you. It is very charming and suits the 19th-century atmosphere of the town. Although not huge, our room was very comfortable and had everything we needed for our nights stay. It was fitted out with old furniture which is in... More

We enjoyed a very quiet overnight stay in the "quaint" motel. Bed was comfortable - definitely needed the electric blanket. Garden will look beautiful in Spring. Nice walk into town for dinner. Would definitely return.

Stayed for one night, glad to leave, the bed is comfy BUT the pillows were pathetic, we asked for some "firm" ones but were told there were none...and wouldn't give us any extras. Only one small bedside lamp so not conducive to a good read before bed. The couch at the foot of the bed was too soft - totally... More

Hi Melbourne Sailor, Your comments about the pillows are specific to you, but firmer ones are provided along with the spare blanket and I did inform you of that. The couches are soft, that's true - but many of our guests prefer them that way. Perhaps if you closed the windows at the front of your unit the a/c wouldn't... More

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.
