Faded Glory

Pros: The location and the generous size of the rooms.
Cons: Pretty much everything. It was old, tired, tattered and neglected.
Location: Set in a vinyard back from the main road. Very quiet with a nice outlook over the vines.
We booked the Suzie Wong suite, a chinese themed room. The room was as pictured and it must have been great in its day however....the furniture was old and the wooden cabinets were literally falling apart. The lampshade was crumbling. The floor and surfaces were clean but grimy. Wipe your finger over them and you can see the dirt. There was an empty wine bottle left from the previous people and there were no bath towels. The restaurant had closed several weeks before we arrived even though the Tripadvisor site still showed it operating. The duty manager apologised first up for that when we arrived and when I went back to get the towels he was very upset that he was fielding complaints from customers about the restaurant and the overall standard. It was far too costly for the standard offered. Lovely location and spacious rooms and bathrooms but overpriced and no longer loved by the owners.

Themed rooms

At the time of booking, we had no idea the room was themed. We found out we were staying in the 'French Bordello' which was quite a surprise. Otherwise, the rooms are clean and close to a Day on the Green.

Comfortable central & Quirky

A great motel in the centre of Pokolbin. Rooms are definitely not the usual sterile motel variety. Very relaxing, quiet but lacked a pool. Would recommend and will stay again.

Dusty mildew smell... Very "tired" motel

We paid $499 for one night thinking we were booking something special in a "quirky" motel. Very dissapointed, we are sure the place was lovely when It first opened, but clearly needs a good clean. The dust and mildew smell in the room was made worse when we turned on the air con. My wife spent the night without sleep struggling with sinuses aggravated by dust and mildew... Unfortunately we were extremely disappointed considering what we paid
