Colonial Motel Richmond
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Richmond
Reviewed 4 August 2014

Recently we had to stay in Richmond for an Airforce Cadet Ball. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was top notch, especially the freshly made to order juices. The spa bath, in the enormous bathroom, was a wonderful way to relax before our night out. We were warm and cosy, even in the middle of winter with overnight temperatures of -1C degrees. I would recommend a stay!

Walk in, mouse poo on fridge. Walk to the left, mouse poo on the cupboard. Walk into the next room and put your bags down onto mouse poo. And if that isn't bad enough, cook some toast in the toaster right next to mouse poo. Went to reception to only be told that it's winter and mice come indoors. Not happy guests and will never be returning.

Bookef a spa suit ... not cheap ... spa didn't work ... tried to put the heater on didnt work ... went to clean my teeth dead silver fish in the sink. For what we paid I would have hoped for better standards. Arms on couch dusty so questionable cleanliness. Office staff pleasant and helpful.
Think about somewhere else as you maybe disappointed as well.

Four friends and I stayed at the Colonial from 14-17 May 2014. Although the decor is dated, the welcome was pleasant, the rooms had ample space, were very clean, the beds were comfortable, and the showers were hot. We asked for, and were provided with, a toaster. We also ate at the Restaurant - The Brasserie, on each of our three nights. Staff, service and food were excellent.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the rear - they are away from the traffic.

Arrived and discovered no tv control, phone not working. Sorted out quickly enough with staff. Beds very uncomfortable, didn't top up the little milk containers the second day. No fly screens on door or window so mozzies got in. RAAF planes fly in extremely low late at night sounds like you are getting landed on! As for the restaurant attached to here, probably the worst steak I've had, pepper sauce was like water, veggies were cooked to within an inch of their limp lives.

I needed accommodation in Richmond so I chose this motel because Best Western is a well-known brand so I did expect that it should have certain standards. I stayed there for 4 nights in late December to early January. Check-in and check-out were quick without any fuss. My room was very spacious. It's old alright, but it's clean and was also cleaned everyday. Amenities in the room were good for the price. They provided free wifi, but the coverage was rather weak in my room so I had to put my laptop near the window to get enough reception. A downside was the air conditioning system. It's old so it's noisy. One of the reading lamps was flickering as well. The location is convenient and it has plenty of parking spaces. Next door is KFC, whilst Maccas and other restaurants are just a bit further. It's also quite near the Richmond train station. There's also a restaurant in the motel itself. I had dinner there once and I think the food was good and the price was reasonable.

I rated the motel 4/5 because it met my needs. It had a good value for money and I had a good rest whilst I was there. If you need to stay in Richmond so somewhere in the vicinity, you should consider staying in this motel.
