I'm not sure which room the picture on Trip Advisor represents but it certainly didn't reflect the room in which we stayed. The motel rooms are very dated. Decor looks like it's been there since the mid 1980's. Complete with cigarette burn hole in one of the bedside lamps. The bed was comfortable enough and the heater worked without being too noisy. Not great if you're a light sleeper - our room was a close as it gets to the busy Maroondah Highway. Tiny TV (not much bigger than my 17" laptop screen), unable to watch comfortably unless sitting directly in front of it. The shower had excellent water pressure and was quite spacious. Staff were very friendly and attentive. Even the poor night manager who was trying to deal with an abusive woman who had rocked up at night screaming the place down. The only thing I can see that remotely justifies the price they are charging ($130/night) is the location. Located on the Maroondah Highway just minutes from Coldstream and the entrance to the Yarra Valley. I would consider staying here again in a room located at the opposite end of the property and at a much cheaper tarriff.
