Was very pleasantly surprised with our stay . The room was backing onto the lake so we were greeted with amazing views on arrival . Rooms were clean and had everything we needed . Very generous breakfast provisions . Addition of an extra room for our teenage daughter was very handy . Food was also very good . Sitting outside soaking up a warm evening - the view , the food - can’t ask for much more on a holiday. Staff were very friendly

According to our kids “this is the best hotel ever”. So good having a separate bedroom for the kids right next to the pool and walking out the back to a grassy green field (perfect space to kick the soccer ball) down to the lake. Then had a great meal in the pub, with welcoming, friendly and very helpful staff. They even provided us with complimentary cereal and milk for breakfast, even though officially breakfast is not included. We had a great stay, perfect for our first night on the Rail Trail.

Don’t waste your money. The beds are 1970. I would’ve had a better sleep sleeping on the floor and the trucks going over the bridge kept me up all night. Spent some money on your bedding!!! people go to Motels to get rest not to be tortured all night. What a joke 0⭐️

Great spot to stay. Motel was clean and comfortable with the lake just outside our front window. Its also far enough away from the pub to be quiet. The pub is also well worth a visit with a nice big fireplace and pretty good food.

We enjoyed our overnight stop while riding the Great Victorian Rail Trail. The room was comfortable and fortunately we were towards the rear of the complex which was less affected by the road noise. The complementary continental breakfast (cereal only) was fine but with no spoons in the room, eating presented a challenge which was solved. We enjoyed the bar and bistro in the hotel.

The location was good, however there is a mice! I was shocked and looked around in the room discovered there is gap in the family room with 3 bed next to a swimming pool located right on the right side. It also bitten a packet of Milo with hole. Feedback to the customer service in the morning when we left. Pub meals was alright but prices are overpriced due to ordered the pub Parma adult and a kid meal turned out the chips were less and cold Parma were ridiculously for kid meal, whereas kid.meal have a bigger portion of the Parma and heaps of fries too. Bring ear plug if you are a light sleeper.

Basic rooms, lacking any charm and not much in the way of comfort, outdoor area needs a good clean. Place could do with a Reno. Seemed to be full of tradies. Highway and hotel music extremely noisy. Don’t stay on a weekend if you want any sleep as the big party boats with booming speakers reverberate from Lake Eildon. Bring earplugs. Food in hotel is good and efficiently served. ‘Continental breakfast’ consisted of coco pops, jam but no bread, we asked for some bit received the answer ‘there is no bread’.

Rooms were expensive for what we got. Mattress was thin, old and lumpy. Old furniture and decor, small and outdated. Outdoor furniture was either broken or missing and the room had a musty smell. Overall very overpriced.

I got a very good halloumi burger in the bistro for dinner, and it has a nice outlook to the lake - one star. But the staff were not very customer focused. They didn’t give me any cutlery. When I asked about this they said they should have given it to me when I ordered - but did they offer to get me any? I had to get my own. And at lunchtime I had to move 3 times to avoid blokes with smokes. I stayed one night at the hotel. The room was dingy - not enough light to read by, and the light switch by the bed didn’t work at all - and scuffed. There were holes in the wall, the paint was chipped, tiles were chipped. The dark colour of the bricks and the furniture didn’t help brighten it up. And I heard all the dialogue and background music of my neighbours’ movie, although I don’t think they had it too loud. There is just no soundproofing. The room looked out onto the lake. It was a nice view. But I didn’t want to stay around to look at it. You can see it from other places in Bonnie Doon. I was there on a cycling trip. There is nowhere to lock up bikes overnight.
