“Very nice place to stay”
Reviewed April 11, 2012

We were travelling with friends and had booked 2 rooms overnight at this motel.

No problem with check in - Chris greeted us in a very friendly and warm manner and told us where our rooms were.

We all thought the rooms were great - very clean and spacious. Very comfortable QS bed - nice grounds with large lawn area. Table and chairs outside our room plus larger tables and chairs in the garden which we readily utilized while we ate lunch enjoying the lovely, sunny weather.

They have the sweetest little dog there who made himself known to us and we all fell in love with him! (I think he was called Beau?) He sat with us outside - mind you - we encouraged him and called him over whenever we saw him!

Even though the motel is set a long way back from the road, being a light sleeper I needed to wear ear plugs. The Hume is noisy but it's not a problem if you're wearing ear plugs.

They also have free DVD hire and microwaves in rooms. Screen doors - a big plus that a lot of motels don't have.

We would have liked more than one night there but work awaited next day!

In Holbrook I would definitely stay again at this lovely motel run by the delightful Christine.

I didn't know this place before we arrived but we found the reception from management was very friendly.
We chose it because everyone says that Holbrook is 'halfway' between Melbourne and Sydney, but with the new roads and faster travelling times it is much nearer (in time) to Melbourne than Sydney.
Took a while to get acclimatised to the highway noise, but still had a good nights sleep. When the by-pass is completed in 2013 that should be a thing of the past.
Try the Australia Cafe & Takeaway at south end of town for a great Aussie hamburger - cooked by a Kiwi!

Stayed here as a stop over from Sydney to Melbourne. I believe that it is half way?
It was clean and the owners were cheerful even at 10pm.
The rooms were reasonably sized. It was a bit noisy as it was on the highway but I would stay here again. Good for an overnighter , it is such a cute town and worth visiting the submarines.
HOWEVER PLEASE DO NOT BUY A COFFEE FROM THE CAFE CALLED MORRISONS. THEY CLAIM TO MAKE THE BEST COFFEE AND I CAN SAVE YOU THE $4.50 IT COSTS AS IT IS JUST HORRIBLE. HONESTLY THE WORST COFFEE I HAVE EVER TRIED.

We decided to stay here on our way home. The motel is the first one on the northern side of town.The outside of the motel looks a little tired, but the room was very nice, and looked like it had been refurbished recently. A bargain for $85. Bathroom looked like it was original, but very clean. Also had undercover parking. Owners were very friendly.
Good airconditioning (for heating), tv, electric blankets made for a very comfortable nights sleep. We rarely order breakfast in motels, but decided to and were very impressed. My husband had the bacon, eggs and sausage for $9, I had poached eggs for $7.50 and got 3 eggs on toast. They even gave us a popper orange juice for free. Will stay again if passing through. They also gave us a good recommendation for dinner.
