“Clean,tidy... very nice... would return”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

Yup, I'd have to say this is the pick for Goulburn. Have been to Goulburn for work since 1987 and not a fan of the town itself, but when I have to go, this is the spot... a bit pricey, but prefer to spend a bit extra to get the best accomodation Goulburn has to offer...
In a good position.. not too close to be bothered by the loud pubs/clubs but a quick drive to the shops for a bite to eat...
Would return for sure...

Thank you for your feedback. You are right, our positioning being set back from the road and out of towns hussel and bussel does make for a peaceful nights rest. Yet town is still at your fingertips as we are only a quick 3 minutes drive into town. We are glad you have enjoyed your stay and see the value in paying that little bit extra for 4 star quality. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

My husband, Cavalier King Charles and I were very comfortable during our stay at the Willows Motel in Goulburn. We would definitely recommend the Motel. It is run by a very pleasant couple who have two small dogs of their own. The room was clean and tidy with ample facilities, it had comfortable furnishings and beautifully kept gardens. Our hot breakfast was delicious too.

We stayed overnight on 23rd February 2013 on our way back to Melbourne from Sydney with a trailer on our car and no sleep the night before. We stayed in a room with a king size bed and spa bath. Everything was perfect - we ordered dinner in then had a quiet, great sleep and a hot excellent cooked breakfast. Staff helpful and friendly. Can't wait to stay there again.

Room Tip: I rang ahead as we decided to stop rather than drive on and manager held the room for us.

Thanks, we are glad you had such a lovely stay and enjoyed the luxury of our Executive Spa King Rooms. It certainly sounds like the perfect romantic night with delicious local recommended takeaway making the most of your kitchenette, a soak in a spa, a latex king bed and a tasty hot breakfast delivered to your room in the morning. We can't wait to accommodate you again!

We have stayed 3 times now (over a 12 month period) at the Willows Motel.

We have been impressed on each occasion with the service from the hosts and with the rooms themselves.

The location is ideal for those en-route to or from Sydney as it is a short distance off the Hume Highway... and despite this location, we had no issues at all with traffic noise etc, in fact we couldnt hear a single sound.

The rooms themselves have been clean and comfortable on each time we've stayed. The beds are amazingly comfy :) and there is a small kitchenette area for tea and coffee.

This motel is approx 6 hours from where we live and that is the maximum I can drive before fatigue really kicks in, so it is like an oasis when we get there. The service from the hosts (whose names I can't recall unfortunately) is always very polite and helpful.

I could recommend this motel for any type of traveller: solo, couples or family.

Clean and nicely furnished. Toaster and microwave and utensils required for breaky. Deserves 4 star rating. Compact rooms and comfy bed. We all had a great sleep.

Motel is on edge of town so you would need to drive but it was quiet. Perfect for those looking for uninterrupted sleep.

Thank you for your response, you are welcome to stay again. Goulburn has some beautiful places to visit and relax. Something very different to the city. Maybe next time you can have more than an over night stay. Our visitors centre website is very pro active in updating up and coming events eg like our 150 birthday in March 2013. Lots to see and do. Look forward to seeing you again.

I regularly use this hotel when travelling between Melbourne and Yamba NSW, It is well situated and has two pet friendly self contained units. The motel is clean and comfortable with easy access to the Hume Highway. When travelling from NSW take the first Goulburn exit and from Victoria the second exit. The hotel is close to the town centre and as meal at the Goulburn workers club is recommended. The motel has friendly staff and I do not hesitate in recommending this Motel
