this motel is good value , rooms are clean , adequate breakfast , 15 minute walk to the centre of town , get a front room if you want views over Corio Bay , can be a bit noisy though ,rooms at the back are a lot quieter , definitely would stay here again

Thank you for your review Pete. We just took over the business 2 weeks ago. Our restaurant does need lots of work and money investment before we can operate it as a quality restaurant. Hopefully after few months hard work, next time when you are here u can enjoy your dinner in here. Looking forwarding to seeing you again. Lou...

We stayed here for a weekend and while the rooms are a little old, they have been repainted and are the cleanest motel rooms we have ever stayed at. They are very comfortable. This is enough to give them 4 stars. The breakfast is excellent, including home made jams, and a cook is available to make a cooked breakfast at...

My mum and I stayed at this motel in rooms next to each other, and I was quite happy with my room! It had everything I needed (fridge, TV, hair dryer, comfy bed, table and chairs,air con/heater). The man at the front desk was nice, there was easy parking. The only bad thing, which isn't the owners fault, is the...

We stayed for two nights in April. We enjoyed our stay. The room had been renovated and very comfortable. The breakfast was included in the price and very good. Parking was busy but we always got a park. One night was very noisy with drunken teenagers staying in one room. They were immediately ejected so it was over fairly fast....

My husband and I stayed here after hearing great views from friends. It went above and beyond what our friends had said.

Hello Terry. We are truly embarrassed regarding the hair in your motel room. We have had problems with a new cleaner, who has recently been dismissed. If you had shared your concerns with us during your stay, we would have tried to resolve things. Certainly we would have compensated you in some way. About the ‘crazy’ owner; you would no...

“Front room on main street will attract early morning traffic and truck noise.”
  • Closer inspection would show power point hanging out from wall and tattered old desk.
  • Closer inspection would show basic maintenance needed. No hair dryer.
  • Quaint shower with interesting base and vinyl curtain.
  • New mattress ..... hard as a concrete floor.
