Reviewed 11 August 2012

While I appreciate a country motel is not going to offer all the bells and whistles of a large hotel, I did expect the basics - a warm and comfortable roomand a hot shower. Sadly this motel missed on all scores.

We used the motel as a stop on the way to Mt Hotham and arrived late after driving up from Melbourne to find the room absolutely freezing. Despite turning the reverse cycle heater on high, it was at least half an hour before I could even contemplate taking my coat off. There is no heating at all in the shower room which made spending any time at all in there extremely unpleasant. This was not an issue as it turned out as, following a bad night's sleep (even with the heater, the extra blanket and the electric blanket - I was very thankful to discover the room offered these - it was impossible to get warm), we discovered there was no hot water to be had from the shower.

Leaving early, I missed the opportunity to raise this issue with the owners, but I did follow up with an email to alert them to the issue. I received a thank you but not apology for the inconvenience we experienced.

At $120 there are better options to be had in Bright if you can keep driving for an extra 30 minutes.

An older motel but run by good clean living local Italians. Very clean and roomy and the rooms have flat screen telies, which is a plus for these areas of country Victoria.

Room Tip: Ask for room 14 and you have a very large car parking space

Having stayed at this motel many times in the past, I have to say that for the price, the standard of the room was very disappointing. The decor was very dated and very dark - bed ok but impossible to sit up in bed due to the large boxed in lighting over the bed.
Bathroom really needed a good scrub with bleech, and the room had a peculiar smell, couldn't work out if it was the on site resteraunt.
The gardens outside are lovely, site peaceful. Just felt that the room not good value.

I stayed in this motel over Easter. On Easter Sunday was no room service at all. We were always short of one towel,as we had one extra bed. Cleanliness was less than average.
