$220 one night in this horrifically located place was ,least to say, exhausting experience. Till late at night trucks passing by busy Princes Highway, bursting thunder of the water at the neighbouring carwash, are just some of the "good night ' sounds piercing through the thin windows facing large concrete wall. The tin roofing echoed with noise coming from birds...

It was a last minute decision to stay at this motel, and one I do regret. It cost $340 for one night for a family room where ch was just an extra single bed shoved into a corner. There was four of us and room was limited in the so called family room. The sheets of n the double did...

Needed a place for only 1 night whilst visiting family near Warrnambool. Reception was accommodating and friendly. Hotel room was dated but clean. Location is very convenient and central. Price is decent for what you get. We stayed in a room with a queen bed and 2 singles for our children which was very handy. Wouldn't recommend for a 5...

This was the only place we could find with vacancy so we were grateful for it but far from impressed. It was tired, stark, a little shady and the "family room" wasn't a good deal. On the pro side, it was very clean and the owners were very nice. The family room we stayed in was freshly remodeled so the...

This is the second time my wife and I have stayed at this motel using Travel Auctions. Anthony gave us a family unit which was very clean and spacious. The bed was very comfortable, the shower was great and the TV worked well. This motel offers other facilities such as a kitchen and laundry. The kitchen is quite large with...

We stumbled upon this motel after a botched booking by another nearby motel. What a great find. Although it is an older style and quite basic it had everything we needed to make our three day break very enjoyable. The management and staff were very friendly, helpful and courteous. They really went out of their way to accomodate our every...

Restaurant only available for group bookings. Room was tired, mattress VERY soft. door VERY DRAUGHTY, we had to use a spare pillow to block draught, equipment basic, plastic spoons to stir tea, no hand towels. Had booked through Travel Auctions for 3 nights and only stayed for one. Also had the dubious pleasure of someone staying there driving in and...
