The room was clean, nice and quite. The staff are friendly and welcoming. The smelled fresh. We appreciate the bed being comfortable compared to other we have stayed in. The in-room amenities were good. Old fashion country stay.

Very clean and well cared for rooms. Our unit was beside the adjoining pasture, giving us a beautiful view of the flowers, the grass and even cows grazing! Everything was in good order. Our only quibble was that the wifi was weak - we had to go into the parking lot to get a good signal. Would definitely recommend this...

In an age where a lot of people are noisy, & don't bother taking into consideration other hotel guests, I have to say it was an absolute pleasure staying here. This motel is a little dated, but does have a charm about it. It's a little out of the main town of Leongatha, but close enough to anything you might...

Very quiet location, clean room with continental breakfast available. Rooms are old and dated, in need of a makeover. Abit far from town for us but taxi service available, waited 50 minutes one day for taxi. Overall a pleasant stay for no frills accommodation.

Rooms are fine but nothing to write home about. In need of a renovation. Location is also inconvenient for heading back into Leongatha. Was nice of the manager to have the heat going in my room on my arrival, definitely appreciated that.
