Stayed over a long weekend in March and it was a pleasant getaway from the sudden hot spell in Melbourne. Location is slightly out of town but certainly within a few minutes drive of supermarkets, shops and other amenities.
Room was a double and single and quite comfortably accommodated to our needs. Owners are nice and obliging and don't be put off by the old exterior - the interior is fairly well set up and there's even a pool in the garden area, but we didn't use it. Though we did see others use it.
Entry to the motel is a little deceiving, you've got to get onto Shannon Avenue before turning into the car park area. There is a traffic sign when you leave the car park telling you of a no right turn policy during certain times of the day and just stick to it and make the U turn further up the main trunk road.
Breakfast wasn't included in our price so we did venture to nearby Pakington Village on the adjacent street - a quaint place where you get to choose from cafes, shops and local produce.
Overall, a nice cosy environment to stay at and one to accommodate comfortably 3 adults or 2 adults and a child.
