Very impressed with this motel, very friendly staff, great facilities and central location. Owner was very welcoming and helpful. Breakfast is provided which made our stay a lot easier. Love this place and would definitely recommend it, will be coming back again soon.

We arrived here late at night after being booked in by another motel. The room appeared ok on first glance, the bathroom was clean, but once we moved in we found that unfortunately nothing else was. The floor looked like it hadn't been vacumned in weeks, the bed had hair on the sheets, the side cabinet and clock was covered in dust and the tray that held the glasses was full of dirt and dust. We didn't use the glasses! The owner was friendly and showed us where to get breakfast in the morning, that was great, plenty of ingredients to choose from, although once again the cleanliness let it down. Just because this motel is mostly used by groups of men working away from home, doesn't mean the owners should let their standards drop. This is an older motel and the price reflects this, and if it was clean there wouldn't be any problem with it. Unfortunatly, we will not be back.

We decided to stay at the Black Forest Motel after reading a number of good trip advisor reviews and chatting to the friendly owner, John.

As we were holding our wedding in Macedon, we wanted the wedding party and family to be in a central location, and within walking distance to the township of Macedon, so Black Forest was the perfect spot!

The rooms are clean, comfortable and affordable.

Having the use of the courtyard, BBQ area and free breakfast was very much appreciated as we had a communal meet up spot for our family and friends staying at the motel over the weekend. All our guests were very happy with the Black Forest Motel and really appreciated the owner’s warm and welcoming hospitality – nothing was too much trouble.

I would highly recommend this motel and would like to thank John and the team for being such great hosts.

No fancy Concierge, or chocolates on your pillow that you don’t won’t to eat anyway (The just makes the hips grow). Just want somewhere that is clean and comfortable to put my head down to sleep, shower in the morning and have a bite to eat before starting the new day without it costing half a week’s wages for the privilege.

Travelling with a wheelchair narrows your options to start with, so when John explained he had a room where the bathroom had rails but that there was a 4" step at the entrance I had to quickly way it up and decided my husband and I could deal with this; So I went ahead and booked. Wow, I am so glad I did, such a lovely quiet location and yet only a couple of minutes from the highway; well positioned for travelling and exploring the fabulous local area

Great guest facilities, one of the cleanest and well equipped BBQ areas I have had the pleasure to use. And I must say the most comfortable bed I have ever experienced in a family motel.

We will definitely be returning to the region and are looking forward to our next stay.

We were attending a wedding at Mt. Macedon so the location was good and there are very few options in this area (unless you want to pay $250-$300 per night). John, the manager, was very helpful and efficient. The beds were clean and comfortable, linen and towels all good quality and clean. It's a very quiet spot and there was no noise from neighbouring guests or traffic. It has a huge shower recess which was great and there was an excellent tea/coffee hospitality tray.

On the "constructive criticism" side, the room could do with a bit of brightening up and bathroom decor is dated. The heating/cooling appliance in bathroom looked awkward and clunky with untidy wiring. The wiring behind the TV in the bedroom was a mess and it took us about 15 minutes to unravel it, tidy it up and get a TV picture. As we were doing this it was obvious that it had not been cleaned in this area for a while. The carpet has seen better days.

It suited our needs for one night as we were late back from the wedding and we had to leave very early the next day - much better than driving back to Melbourne late at night.

We were quite comfortable in our "spa" room. No frills, didnt use the the spa but all was ok. Plenty of space in the room, bed fine. The mats in the bathroom could have done with a spin in the washing machine, but the rest all ok.

We decided at the last minute not to stay with family in Gisborne and look for a motel. The one and only motel in Gisborne was booked out so this was the next available - about 10 minutes up the road.
The manager was friendly and welcoming but the room was expensive for what it was and was very dated. Thankful that there was a vacancy - but not really worth the amount paid
