“An average 3 star motel”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

We stayed 2 nights here, Thursday and Friday. We were given the key to our queen sized bed room, and when we entered there was an excessive smell of room freshner. We went out for a meal, and when we returned we tried to heat the room, but the unit did not work. Our calls to reception were unanswered, and when I went there, there was no one there. So we went out again, and on returning there was someone there who told me that I had to insert the tab on the key into a slot next to the unit. Silly me! Maybe a sign under the unit would have helped!?
The next morning I went to pay the bill, and to advise that we would be late that evening, and again there was no one there...but there was a mobile number to call which I did, and was informed that he would be returning 1 1/2 hours later, so I said to forget it, and I would settle the next morning.
The room was very clean, and the water was hot for a shower, and it was quiet. Close to the shopping centre.
However, whilst I can understand increased rates over the Summer season, I resented paying $30 more on the Friday over the Thursday, as we were the only people there on Thursday, and there were very few extra people there on the Friday. And we used the same sheets!

We are sorry to hear that you were having trouble with the shower water pressure, just wish you had of let us know instead of having to read it on Trip Advisor. We have since had a plumber in to fix the problem. Apparently the water saver shower heads were causing the water pressure & temperature to go from hot to cold.

Booked a two night stay with my husband as we were attending a wedding nearby. Office staffers were cheerful and polite, our room was large with a queen sized bed, a foldout couch, tv with DVD player, kettle, microwave, cutlery and crockery. We had a very comfortable stay there and have absolutely no complaints!

This is a repeat of my post on http://www.booking.com/hotel/au/balnarring-village-motor-inn.en-gb.html?sid=eddcc1da46e82a44578ed0665d628e84;dcid=1;origin=disamb;srhash=2540401679;srpos=1#hash-blockdisplay4

This is what it reads:

No fuss stay at this place. Basic amentities expected of a motor inn. Location is good as a push-off to other attractions in Mornington. Oz is pretty big by comparison to where I come from so with a car on a road trip, distance is not really an issue. 30-40 mins is considered pretty near. Beds had elecric blankets and you can park right outside your unit. Very useful for luggage totting families like mine. Easy to locate (of course I was travelling with my trusty Garmin). Of course I only stayed one night so it was ok but if you are planning to stay a few nights and want to live it up, you need to keep looking. This is a no fuss motor inn. Clean by Singapore standards so that should speak volumes. Staff are friendly and greet you with a smile. Near to food and supermart. Perfect for non fussy travellers.

Stayed last night and we were very surprised at how pleasant the motel room was - light and airy, nice furnishings, and it actually had reading lamps over the bed - a very big plus on our list - and a reading lamp lamp over the sofa.
Owners very helpful and friendly.
We had a look at the double rooms and the big family room and they looked great if you were travelling with family or friends.
The large BBQ area also looked good with plenty of tables and chairs for a group.
Would have liked a ceiling fan as the aircon was quite noisy - but very efficient.

Room Tip: In the middle of summer the rooms facing the BBQ could be very hot in the morning so you would need...

Stayed here recently for two nights with a group of friends. The hosts were most helpful and provided some useful suggestions for lunch and dinner options. Quiet location and nicely furnished rooms. Would stay again.

I enjoyed the stay at this motel. the rooms are old, culd do with an upgrade. but the location is just fantastic, close to great shops, and also the pub two doors down, great meals and good prices. There is a pizza shop across the road, and wow factor applies. The room in the motel was fine, beds could do with an upgrade. Price was fine

Room Tip: all rooms were quiet

Date of Stay: 23rd Sept 2012. Duration: 1 night.

We booked this hotel via the internet. As we approached, we called ahead and they informed us that they were not far away and our rooms were unlocked, waiting for us with the keys inside. Which was nice.

We had 4 adults and two young children in two rooms. The rooms were clean and well appointed. The young ones enjoyed having their own room and had a good play one the small playground. The next morning we cooked our own breakfast in-room, which was easy as all we had to do was to provide the food.

Nearby are several choices for places to eat as well as an IGA supermarket for anything that you may have forgotten.

Room Tip: Make sure that you check out on time, as they charge you $20 per room per hour.
