Reviewed January 16, 2014

Stayed for one night and found all the facilities to be of a very high standard. The people were very courteous and displayed a very generous caring attitude, The room was exceptional, furnishings etc excellent. Did not use the A/C so can pass no comment.
Breakfast was of a high standard and was hot when served in the allocated time slot.

A group of us stayed here as a base for our short golf trip. The motel is well positioned for shops and restaurants - easy walking distance. Very comfortable standard motel with lovely welcoming hosts who will help and advise you with any questions or needs that you have. Good swimming pool under cover, bbq area and the rooms are well sized. We also had a spacious apartment that would comfortably sleep up to 5 people.
By the way, we highly recommend Yering Meadows if you are a golfer. (15 mins drive)

Thanks for the kind review, we are happy to hear that your group had a good trip, even though the weather wasn't very kind. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future, with perhaps better weather for golf.

We stayed here while having a weekend away doing things in the Yarra Valley. We found the motel was a higher standard than we expected. Everything was extremely clean, seven towels available for five people. The beds were very comfortable. The managers were very friendly and we were well informed about the local area which was useful for finding good places to eat. It was very quiet, no traffic noise. Everyone slept well! We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here for a base when we did a Winery Tour, we stayed for 2 nights, centrally located to where we were visiting, close to McDonalds, KFC and a shopping centre, although on the highway, we didnt hear traffic noise, the room was very comfortable, very clean and well appointed, the continential breakfast was delightful, and cooked breakfast perfection, Our Tour group was well catered for, the hosts, Fiona and Frank were exceptionally friendly and helpful with us and the tour group. Truly a great place to stay. They have a beautiful pool, unfortunately we didnt get the opportunity to try it out, perhaps next time.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Motel. The accessible or disability room was spacious and very clean. A pleasant surprise was that there were six towels available. The location was brilliant as we needed to go to both Woori Yallock and Healesville. Frank and Fiona (the Managers) were extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble.

We would highly recommend this Motel to our family and friends.

From the U.S. - selected this site to avoid the hassles of downtown Melbourne, yet easy access via train nearby. One story red brick building. Well maintained. Excellent staff - very courteous and helpful. Nice restaurants nearby walking distance. McDonalds within 100m for coffee. Bed was comfortable and bathroom amenities were good. This is a local motel... not a 5 star international hotel. As long as your expectations are set accordingly, this is a great place to stay. We enjoyed our 2 night visit.

Room Tip: They are all about the same in a bit of a quadrangle around the small parking area

The motel is very conveniently placed near shops and cafes, and although on the main road, was quiet because the rooms were well set back from the road. The room was clean, spacious and comfortable, and we enjoyed our nights there.
