We stayed here in August which was quite cold in Eltham. The heating was excellent and the electric blanket much appreciated ( put on early as the take a while to warm up). The staff was very welcoming and available when needed. Our room was at the back and was very quiet even though the motel is on a busy... More

I'm here to farewell a very special person, and I found the staff here to be so friendly, nothing was too much trouble. The room was clean and tidy. Breakfast was delicious. Couldn't be more impressed.

I enjoyed staying at the Eltham Motor Inn. I found the location to be excellent as we were attending a wedding at the venue across the street. Price was most reasonable and the rooms were clean and well presented. Definitely would stay there again if in Eltham

I was entirely satisfied with this place - greatly little country-style motel on the edge of the city, friendly staff, nice big room, good bed (slept better than the prior few nights in a swanky Sydney hotel), and that simple down-to-earth charm that only Aussie motels can muster. Not long ago this area was still farmland, and somehow it still... More

We stayed for several nights and the room was qute spacious and adequate for our needs. The property is well maintained but is ripe for renovation to bring it to current standards. Bathroom screens around the shower in the room we were in were not easy to pull closed as tracks were compromised. . Price reflects the condition of the... More

Have just spent 10 days in Melbourne and stayed at the Eltham Motor Inn which was a great stay and not to mention great value. The rooms were clean and nice and quiet. We went with our teenage son and had an adjoining room which was ideal as we all had plenty of space. If you want to stay in... More

Our first stay in this motel was pleasant although we had noisy neighbors, which has nothing to do with the owners, just inconsiderate people. We stayed again this weekend and have to say it was disappointing. There was no greeting, just spoke through the intercom which we thought was a little rude considering it wasn't late. We chose a family... More

We used this as a base whilst visiting family over the Christmas period for 6 nights. Overall we would score it highly for value for money.
