I stay here quite regularly for work and the rooms are always spotless and the staff always friendly. The Grovedale pub is right next door for dinner. And there is a variety of restaurants and takeaways in the area too.

Upon arrival we were greeted by our very friendly receptionist and was made feel very valued. The rooms were clean and comfortable. And when leaving the gentlemen was also very friendly! We will be back and the motel is very handy next to the Grovedale Hotel

Management was very informative in telling us what was around the area. Went with 4 other friends; we stayed in the larger rooms that could accommodate 5 people for a night and found no fault in the place at all. Free wi-fi made the place even better! All amenities were well provided with even a microwave oven and bread toaster... More

We spent only one night there but I managed to reserve for the wrong night! Not only did the manager gave us a room that was still available, he gave us the same rate as the night I wrongly booked. What an angel! The room was a bit dated but very clean (which is the most important, really!) and we... More

My husband and I and our four children just enjoyed two nights at this motel. The owners and staff were very pleasant, friendly and helpful. Not many motels accommodate 4 children so it was lovely that they offered a trundle for our fourth. They were very welcoming on arrival and advised us of places to visit and events that were...

Now I have travelled extensively, and though I dont write a lot of reviews, I have to mark this down. This by far, is the best place I have ever stayed in, in all my travels. And I came about this place out of desperation because I needed accomodation at the very last minute. The owners were extremely friendly and... More

Owners were very friendly, helpful and accommodating of late check in. Fenced so your car is safe. Big room and bathroom. Comfortably furnished with nice extras like a welcome info tray, biscuits for your coffee and mints. Well priced.

Unfortunately we could only stay one night at this Motel. We found the owner very pleasant & helpful. He went out of his way to make us feel welcome. We stayed in a cabin style unit. Which was rather new, very tastefully decorated and a pleasure to stay at. We would recommend this accommodation to anyone.

My husband and I recently spent a night here while travelling around Victoria. The owners are very friendly and rooms are huge, so is the bathroom. Nice décor and spotlessly clean. It is situated right on the main road and therefore gets a bit of traffic noise. We asked for a room to the side which was luckily available, as... More
