“You gotta love it...”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

I don't know what it is about country motels, but there is something you've got to love about them. Maybe it's the romance of chenille; the lure of brown carpet or the familiarity of florals, but the Clunes Motel has it all. Sure it's a little dated, but then the price isn't 5-star. Steve, the local owner has a sense of service that I would love some more expensive establishments to understand. His kindness and generosity makes The Clunes Motel worth going back to...even only to share a beer with him again.

We had to call the manager's mobile when we arrived as no one was around. This mustn't be unusual as it is posted on the reception door that you should call him. He arrives pretty quickly (5 minutes) so he must live nearby. He was very friendly and let us order two 'large' breakfasts to share with our children because they wouldn't have eaten a whole one themselves. Our children loved that the breakfast is delivered through a breakfast hutch, he had added extra juices and yogurts for us too which was a nice touch. Even though everything looked clean there was a funky smell. We found the source (some mould on the skirting board) when we moved one of the beds so our son could see the TV. Maybe they air the rooms better before the warmer busier months and this fixes the smell. It wasn't busy we were the only ones there. I've always loved Clunes but I was so disappointed to find half of the trees have been chopped down and my favourite places gone. Check out the lolly shop if you go to town, it's worth the visit.

Clunes Motel is an older style motel in need of a facelift. Nevertheless, the manager was friendly, the room clean and it had good ammentities such as a microwave, toaster, electric jug, bar fridge, TV, hair dryer, cutlery and crockery.
My wife and I stayed there for a night in January 2012 and payed about $70 which we thought was fair value.
