We enjoyed our recent stay. The kids were especially happy to have the chance to canoe, fish and swim without leaving the property. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Worst stay ever . The rooms look like a dungeon !

Dated appearance . Rude staff . Make sure you check your credit card for duplicate charges as it appears very conveniently common for them to accidentally double bill you . Restaurant bill was debited twice and upon calling the staff they promised to reverse the charges but it didn't come through

Quiet motel close to nature

Value for money motel. Comfortable big family room. We ordered room service for dinner and breakfast and the food came promptly. The shower area need to be improved by providing a bath mat as there is no barrier to prevent water from showering to splash out of shower

Thank you taking the time to leave a review, we are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. In relation to the showers, they are quite large and designed so that water 'should' not spray onto the floor, however in the event that this does happen (which can with children), to avoid stepping out onto a wet floor all of our rooms do have supplied a bath mat & a rubber mat for added safety.

Beautiful setting and delicious food

Pros: Setting, room, staff and food.
Cons: Nothing
Location: The motel is set back from the road, so is very quiet. We only stayed one night as we were travelling through, so can't comment on activities nearby.
Stayed here for one night in January 2017. Motel is in a beautiful setting with a large lake, and we had a lovely billabong outside our room, which was visited by birds and dragonflies. Dry, very relaxing. Staff were so friendly and helpful. We had a light evening meal with dessert (awesome). We would wholeheartedly recommend to anyone.

Lovely hotel near the Grampians

Pros: Staff was friendly, the rooms were clean and functional and the food at the restaurant was really nice.
Location: We used it as base to go to Aradale night tour, and it was ideal, near but not in Ararat.
Family was happy about the location and the quality of this Hotel. The food was great and the guests were lovely as usual. We came to this Hotel in the past and it has always left a very positive impression, which only improved during this visit.

Very Hospitable stay

A group of us stayed here for the first time and we will definitely be back again. Right from the moment we entered reception were we greeted with a friendly face and a great sense of humour. Kate and Dave were fantastic hosts who could not do enough to make sure we were all comfortable. The restaurant food was great as were the friendly staff looking after us during the evening. Rooms were very clean and comfortable Well done guys and we will see you again!

Spent a night and this motel and would definitely go back. People were very nice and rooms were very clean. Perhaps the only downside was that they were a bit outdated.

Very Attentive New Owner & Host

Pros: The lovely owner. Pleasant to have water running behind the rooms and roos in the paddocks as evening closes.
Cons: It is an older motel and is what you would expect for the price and locality.
The owner noticed that I having a harder time cutting my veal than I should and check on me. He was very unhappy and so apologetic a as he was training a new chef. He is highly trained and worked with some notable chefs himself. He comped the meal and we left as happy customers. I would definitely stay here again and look forward to dining.
