Booked last minute for a 2 night stay over the holiday weekend. Modern studio for $130 per night. Studio was very clean - kitchen was very good (no oven) but cook top and microwave. Bed was comfortable and nice linen. Didnt hear any noise from unit next down (occupied) nor really from the road. Slightly more than I would generally...

Once again we stayed here for a few nights. And, still the same great service, same well presented units, same friendliness that we have found in the past. 2x thumbs up!! Space available for boat parking as well as a BBQ for guests to use.

We booked this motel as a starting and finishing point for a short tramping trip in the National Park. In the event we had 3 nights here due to very bad weather in the whole region cutting short our trip. The Motel is what I would call a surprise for both its very high quality and the friendliness & helpfulness...

A great night stay at this accomodation. The manager accommodated us at the last minute, during a busy time of year. We stayed in one of the modern studio units, the further set from the road. Modern kitchenette, great bathroom and shower was hot and great. The manager was very nice and told the kids the history of the eels...

Friendly welcome to this motel in St Arnaud - very fair pricing - same price all year. This lovely log cabins are set in a landscaped garden, each a little separate from the other. It was very clean and tidy, though the hot plate was not working - he did warn us about this. Asked for wifi and got the...

Cosy and sufficient. First time stayed in two bedroom place — nice and spacious and shower pressure was awesome. Second time stayed in the studio apartment which was great. The only reason I'm not giving this place 5 stars is because the owner yelled at me (rather loud and rude and grumpy) about putting their towel on the sunny rocks...

We had a very nice evening. Loved the walk to the Lake. Quiet warm unit. No face cloths or tissues. Comfortable bed and linen. Friendly reception. Noise comes through the walls from next unit so that might be annoying if you wanted an early night.

Located on the highway this motel is convenient to all local attractions - the rooms are large and very clean - road noise is zero. Our room was at the back of the complex with a view to the hills and native bush gardens. The weather turned quite chilly during our stay - we were snug and warm. Take the...

Drove in on a not so nice weather day seeking a quiet cosy room after an uncomfortable room the night before. We were warmly welcomed by the owners and provided with lots of helpful suggestions for walks, meals and activities. Room was very spacious, clean and felt like home. Capable kitchenette, comfy bed, room heater adequate, Great shower! Lovely walk...
