It was clean, that’s the best I can say about it. My room was down a dark hall with my door facing the smoking area (I don’t smoke) so I didn’t feel safe coming and going at night. The room clearly hasn’t been touched since it was built in the early 80’s. The bathroom tiles were incredibly slippery when wet so I had to keep towels down. I showered with the light off because there is a frosted window in the shower, it faced directly out to the car park. My room wasn’t serviced while I was there and the afternoon before check out an owner says ‘I forgot to service your room, do you need anything?’ The security door on the room had a broken handle so didn’t close. The price is way too high for what it was, I regularly stay in a modern hotel in Melbourne CBD for the same price. I would have cancelled the room but I’d prepaid and the website said no refunds so I was stuck.

Nice, simple little place. Nothing fancy, bit dated but if you need a bed, they will sort you out.

The property is old and in need of refurbishment to justify the prices charged - for the rooms with spa baths anyway

Visiting for business so only around in evenings. Very comfortable bed. Usual motel tea and coffee but bottled real milk a bonus.. Was disappointed the pool and spa were closed for maintenance. Had a nice dinner with wine in the restaurant. Very friendly and helpful staff..
