The owners who greeted us when we got here were so lovely and hospitable. We were newly weds and they upgraded us to the "house" which was so comfortable and specious at no extra cost. We came with our families and the stay was a very pleasant one.. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen had all the necessary things to cook a nice meal.. We will definitely come stay here next time. Thank you and hope the owners enjoyed the cake:)

Stayed: February 2014

This motel has just been taken over by new owners, who were lovely people, very friendly and helpful , and keen to make a go of their new business. The motel was clean and comfortable with average sized rooms. We stayed two nights. Some people have said it was noisy, but we didn't fid it so, although it is situated on a busy junction just north of the centre of Geelong which isn't quite within walking distance. We stayed in quite a few chain/franchise motels on our Australia trip. This one was one of the memorable ones for all the right reasons.

We had a quick stopover at this motel before starting the Great Ocean Road. We thought it was a very average experience. The room was clean, the receptionist not very friendly, the bed okay and the heating noisy but sufficient.

Not bad for a quick stopover, but definitely not that good either.

Thankyou for your honesty. We have addressed the air conditioning and have replaced the unit in question. Our aim is too please and apologize that you felt your welcome at the front desk was not as friendly as it should have been. We would like to offer you a discount on your next stay with a free continental breakfast for two.

Yes, this motel is a bit dated. But it was clean and had FREE WIFI. We only needed it for one night but could have stayed for a few.
Seems the new owners are a family of at least three and were friendly and helpful.
I enjoyed all the flowers in the yard.

Room Tip: Don't let the outside appearance fool you. The rooms are quite nice inside.

We arrived in the hotel for the funeral. Most of the family from all over Australia stayed in this motel . Nice room and clean yet very very noisy. as its located in the middle of busy intersection. The heating was not working when we arrived and as it was after hours there was no chance to report the problem. The next day went to reception to advise that the heating was not working, the lady did not believed me and came to double check if not working. I had my family members in bed … a bit weird to have strangers coming to your room just to check the heating as they don’t believe you. As a worker of many years in the same industry this has been very disappointing experience.
