Room with 1 Queen + 1 single bed was very spacious, comfortable, clean and tastefully furnished. Motel in a quiet location, so sleep came easily. Host David was very friendly, and informed about where to eat and what to see in town.

A modern, homely small motel. Only short walk to Botanic gardens. Extremely clean and pristine with beautiful sheets and bedding. Very well maintained room. Lovely bathroom with large, efficient and clean shower. Staff who were relieving for the usual management were very helpful and obliging. This was one of the cleanest motel we have ever stayed in.

This small yet extremely stylish Motel is situated within walking distance of central Warrnambool. The degree of cleanliness is second to none anywhere. The other outstanding feature is the large shower stall with a rainhead outlet. We found the overall experience to be relaxing and comfortable and have no reservations in recommending it.

The annual trip to Warrnambool, and stay at the Elm Tree was a welcome respite from work. Comfortable beds, clean rooms and happy and friendly staff are always staples at this lovely motel. The peace and quiet is definitely appreciated after a day exploring the area.
