“Pleasant stay, lovely owners, fantastic breakfast!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2013

Lovely place. Friends and I stayed for one night only but were very happy with the room and the service provided. Traveled from Adelaide Thursday night, didn't arrive until around 1am to find out rooms waiting and ready for us. Rooms a little dated but bathrooms have been renovated. We were greeted with a wonderful cooked breakfast the next morning and a piece of banana cake each for morning tea! loved that! Once again, the owners were lovely and gave us a nice warm welcome. Will definitely stay here again if we're ever over that way! Definitely worth the price! Thanks! Emma, George, Carly & Daniel.

We came for the weekend to the Grampians and stayed at the London Motor Inn. We have a little dog and she was made most welcome. The rooms are clean, and comfortable, although perhaps a little dated, but similar to most country motels. The room came with fully cooked breakfast which was very yummy, we even got morning tea provided :). Friday night the traffic noise was constant, but Saturday night was fine, unfortunately the trucks keep on trucking.
The owners are new and are doing a lot of renovating to improve this motel further. The rates were very reasonable, happy to come back again.

Room Tip: rooms down the back are quieter, with room to tie your dog up.

On a trip from Adelaide to Melbourne recently we stopped at the London Motor Inn. We booked enroute about 2 hours before we arrived. We arrived to find the heater had been turned on in our room, which was clean and more than adequate. A pleasant surprise was the inclusion of a cooked breakfast in the price. We met the owners in the morning for breakfast and their welcome was warm. We had a lovely cooked breakfast and were then presented with a piece of home made banana cake neatly wrapped in foil for our morning tea. This was such a lovely touch and made our day . We will be staying here again.

Room Tip: The rooms down the side are quieter

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2013

stayed here on the way home from adelaide it was very cheap the owners were very nice came to our room with biscuits and a can of fizzy for the kids. the beds were comfortable but our wool blanket had hairs all through it so had to take it off . we had a back room which was good cause we couldnt here the traffic if we were in the front 1ns might of been a different story the heater was fantastic and warmed the room easily. the shower kept going hot then cold so that was annoying but over all good value for money

Room Tip: get a back room far from the road as possible

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2013

We checked in for 3 nights recently on a family history research visit to Stawell. The room had a queen size and 2 single beds with an open wardrobe. The bathroom very clean for your typical country motel. The room was also very clean and being so cold outside, the electronic blanket was very welcome. Check-in was efficient, although a smile wouldn't have gone astray from the gentleman who checked us in. The room had a fridge and an effective, stand alone heater plus an iron and ironing board. There was also a DVD player behind the tv. There was no phone in the room which was a surprise so you couldn't call reception if needed.

The down side to our stay was the problem the hotel had with their hot water system. The first morning there was no hot water at all and we had to make do with cold shower/wash. These things happen and I was assured that it would be fixed that day. The next morning my husband had a hot shower when he got up early but an hour later I managed only a tepid shower. I was also disappointed to find when we returned to the room at the end of the day that the cleaner hadn't bothered to wash or replace the used cups and glasses in the room or bothered to straighten up the towels in the bathroom. Check-out was very slow as there was no-one in reception and two guests had to wait 10 minutes for someone to turn up, there being no response to several rings of the bell for assistance.

Overall, a disappointing stay as we didn't have the very positive experience of other reviewers, but you can't complain about the price and to be fair, when we decided to check out a day earlier as our research was complete, they didn't object or charge us for the 3rd day.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back away from the highway.

Had occasion to stay here recently found the owners to super friendly. The hotel is currently undergoing a makeover by the new owners and is a work in progress. It is clean and tidy. The breakfast was a simple old fashioned home cooked meal which was superb.
We look forward to seeing the finished hotel. Good value for the price.
