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.

A nite stay before going back to Melbourne after Yarra Valley drove. Nice family room with an unexpected jacuzzi in the middle of the room. Great surprise! Room was clean and spacious for family of 4 but didn't have a twin bed. Would be good to have a twin instead of 2 doubles. Overall, very happy to stay at this motel. The town is also very pleasant. Great place to stay and visit.

We arrived mid week, on a chilly wet December day. The room was clean and comfortable. A little mini kitchen was in the room enabling us to prepare a simply evening meal. Bathroom was good, and nice and clean.

A very well priced motel.

Stayed here for 1 night and really enjoyed my stay it was so quiet, bed and pillows were comfy, loved the pool area, food was only a few 100m up the road which was really convenient. The room and bathroom were also quite spacious compares to some motels I've stayed in so would definitely recommend :)

We needed accommodation so we could attend a 69th birthday in St Andrews. This was the closest place we could get. The room was clean, modern and comfortable. The addition of a sink and a few basic plates etc made serving our lunch easy. It was just a short walk to the Research shops for an acceptable quality afternoon latte.
Although we were generally pleased with the motel, we felt it was a little overpriced at $125 - more a $100 standard venue.

A very clean and comfortable Motel. The service was outstanding. The owner organised a taxis for the exact time that I needed one and even offered to pick us up afterwards if we could not find another taxis late at night.
The room was large and comfortable and the heating warmed us throughout the night.The kitchenette has a toaster and kettle so you can make brekkie in the morning.
A very pleasent stay!

We were booked into stay and were attending a funeral our three year old daughter got gastro, when we discussed this was the manager he really could not of cared less and said he was doing us a favour by only charging us $ 50 instead of $75.. He was extremely rude and clearly money hungy. We have a hotel of our own that rents rooms and we would never treat a customer with such disrespect. Will never stay there and NEVER recommend the Eltham Motor Inn.
