Sunbury Motel, what can one say. It is a small Motel in Sunbury which is 35k from Melbourne, the Motel is very basic, the rooms are clean and of a decent size, they have a great basin that you can actually get the electric jug under and back out without spilling half the contents. The rooms have queen size beds, proper coffee mugs, tea, coffee etc and a microwave oven.

The motel is in walking distance to the shops, theatre and train station, and Sunbury is 15 minutes’ drive from Tullamarine Airport. Sunbury has a number of good eating places and the pubs put on very good meals at reasonable prices.

Reception is very off-putting to the extent if there was another Motel we would have gone there. No manners, we had made a booking several days before arriving and when we said our name he couldn’t find it on his booking form till I pointed it out to him. With that he dumped a form in front of us with a grunt of fill in and pay now. No please or thankyous at any time, no offer of information about Sunbury or where to eat etc. you know the normal sorts of things reception staff do when you arrive at a Motel from interstate, sort of makes you feel real welcome, I think not. He made us feel very unwelcome, maybe we interrupted whatever he was doing before we arrived.

Would we stay there again, yes, only because it’s the only motel in town and close to where we want to visit.

We stayed at the Sunbury Motor Inn for two nights, as we were attending a wedding in the area. The reception staff (owners?) were friendly, attentive and very helpful. The unit we stayed in was a self contained one bedroom. There was one queen size and a single bed in what was essentially one large room with a kitchenette tucked in one corner. The separate bathroom was a good size and had a shower. The unit was spacious, recently renovated and very clean. However, had you wanted to, you wouldn't have been able to do much more than heat things in the microwave, as there was no cook top or pots/pans. This was not an issue for us. We just used the fridge, and appreciated that small containers of milk that were provided (coffee, tea, and sugar also provided).

The Motor Inn is also quite conveniently located to downtown Sunbury, and the restaurants, cafes and mall. The walk to town only took about 10 minutes, depending on the route we took.

We thought the Motor Inn was good value for money, for basic accommodation for one or two nights.
