This motel is very clean, the owners are friendly and it is a perfectly good choice for a short stay.
The free wifi is awesome and they've jut put in a new pool which may come in handy for summer. It is also sweet that the rooms are named after the local vineyards.

Thank you for your review, we love that our rooms are named after some of the local wineries and that guests sometimes chose their room as it's their favourite winery. Our new pool is going to be great this summer and has already been used plenty during the recent warm weather.

What a great little Motel. Old fashioned hospitality if you require or complete privacy if you so wish. It is walking distance to all local Restaurants. Breaky is amazing apparently although we headed down the main street for breaky at the Black Bull (all of our eggs were undercooked, runny whites) So in hindsight should have eaten at Motel.. Will definately be staying here again. One of the cleanest motels we've ever stayed at. Love the bottle opener, great touch!!

Were on our way to Melbourne and needed to break up the journey and stay the night. Very simple, clean motel. Excellent value as they had a reduced rate for winter. Owners very friendly and helpful. Room was spacious and quiet. Motel is at the end of the main street but you can easily walk to pubs and restaurants.Very happy to recommend to others.
