Pretty basic motel, the room had a very inefficient heater on a cold night Room was pretty well worn, but it was clean. People who ran the motel were very friendly and helpful. Very close to the Glenrowan siege site and close to the pub (which was important as the motel has no catering).

Stayed here for one night one the way home recently. The motel is a small old fashioned motel. The rooms have been freshly painted and are very clean. The rooms are quiet, comfortable with TV, coffee making facilities. This is not a modern holiday resort but just a nice small motel to stop at on the way to wherever you...

Small Hotel with a big heart. A quaint little old school motel. Nothing flash, just great hospitality - right next door to local pub for a simple yet great meal. Suited our family of 5 and kids loved all the Ned Kelly history

We loved the fact that it was right in town a short walk from everything. We could walk to the cafes and to the historic sites of Glenrowan. The room was clean, the beds were comfortable and the towels were thick and large. There were DVDs to borrow or bring your own as there was a DVD player with the...

This is just an average motel in out of the way Glenrowan. Nothing flash but clean and tidy and value for money if you are passing through. Staff are very friendly and helpful. There is a DVD library to explain and entertain regarding the local history. The pub is right next door with good pub grub and you won't get...

Glad you enjoyed your stay on yet another return trip to Melbourne.... Have to add though that Glenrowan is not that "out of the way" being only 1 kilometre off the Hume and well worth the detour to explore the town which is the "keeping place of the legend" of Ned Kelly and The Siege of 1880!

Lovely little country motel. The lady who runs the motel is very obliging and friendly. Rooms are a little older style, but particularly clean and well presented. While no air-conditioning is noticable, there is reasonably effective heating and I understand ducted evaporative A/C is provided in warmer weather

Thank you for your review of our small family-owned and operated motel and your observations re warming and cooling facilities, although this spring has not been either warm or cool so far but most definitely wet!

From the moment we arrived (late ) we were warmly welcomed by Jenny. The rooms were spacious, very clean. The beds were very comfortable and warm. The shower was AMAZING! Jenny offered and supplied DVDs for our entertainment. All in all a wonderful place to stay in Glenrowan.

Used this motel for an overnight stop on Journey between Melbourne and Canberra. On arrival, the host was very welcoming (as other reviewers have mentioned). The room was clean and comfortable, and my only complaint would be that the bathroom shower was difficult to adjust to get an even, comfortable temperature. Otherwise, all was good. The motel has no meals...

We had a great time in Glenrowan. The hotel was really clean and very comfortable. There is a pub on side and a cafe and deli on the other. It is in the main street with the famous Kelly Gang historical shootout area a short walk away.
