We only had the opportunity of staying one night as we also own and operate a tourism business and we had a funeral to attend the following morning. We weren't looking for anything luxurious we just wanted somewhere to sleep basically. I must say the owner was very accommodating and it's so lovely to stay somewhere that is owned and operated. Although it was 44 degrees the owner was outside using his blower, keeping the grounds tidy and clean. I did say to him "are you crazy" and he replied "you have to do what you have to do". You could tell he was here to make our stay as pleasurable as possible. We stayed in a standard room which was VERY CLEAN and spacious. We didn't use the pool but the setting was lovely with deck chairs (we'll pack our bathers next time). We walked across the road to the Noble Chinese Restaurant which was very handy, we could indulge in a few glasses of wine without the worry of drinking and driving. The food was great and the staff were very friendly and professional. We didn't take up the option of room service breakfast as our food consists of raw vegan but it was your typical juices, cereals and cooked breakfast. If the food is any reflection on the way they maintain their property, I'm sure it would be good. Definitely will stay here again when we are in Melbourne. For the price point, I would recommend this motel.
