Furnished in historic style to match the historic township but has all you need in mod cons including a bath. Love a bath when I'm on holiday! Quiet and pleasant in a garden setting and within walking distance to town. We thought it was good value for what it offers.

Nice and quiet, comfortable. Small rooms but clean and tidy. Lovely warm comfy bed. Tv on a strange angle and in hard to see spot. AC very loud on heating side. A little tight for parking. Clean linen and towells. Difficult to fill kettle

Thank you for your nice review, Julie. A/C can be a little loud when worked hard. As for parking, we have noticed people are driving larger vehicles these days. The parking spots were designed for the smaller vehicles of 35 years ago. Still there is sufficient room. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us Julie.

I loved my stay in this gorgeous heritage style motel. The fittings & furnishings were on point, the surroundings very peaceful & lovely to waken to the rural sounds of magpies warbling in the distance. It's gorgeous ending the day reading in an armchair in the beautiful gardens. Customers are greeted warmly on check in & it sets the tone...

Thank you for you lovely review, Theresa. Sorry about the occasional noisiness of your neighbours; however, it is worth mentioning that the walls between each unit is solid brick. We are pleased that your experience was generally positive and that enjoyed our garden setting.

Stayed at the Eaglehawk Motel for a couple of nights last weekend while in Maldon for the steam railway. It's a short drive from the main street but that's no problem - you do have a car! Lovely tranquil feel and a country cottage vibe with lots of cottage garden. Peaceful and quiet. Rooms are very comfortable, and a reasonable...

A small but very pleasant and charming motel on the edge of town. About ten minutes walk through suburban streets to the pub's. There is only about ten rooms in this small hotel,all located inside quiet garden like setting surrounded by scrubs and flowers. The room was not big but this was more than compensated by the antique furnishings and...

A step back in time in more ways than one. Charming setting with comfortable rooms complemented by wonderful hosts. I can thoroughly recommend a stay in this clean and very well maintained property. A tranquil oasis located in a piece of history.

We recently had a family get together in Maldon and very much enjoyed our stay at the Eaglehawk Motel. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and I think I may have had the best nights sleep I've ever had away from home. The rooms are full of old world charm and it was a delight to be able to...

Set in gorgeous gardens, the Eaglehawk is inviting and tranquil. There is parking at the rear of your room and two access points. The rooms are comfortable, clean and well appointed, with many homely touches. Lovely linen and great pillows! These are not sterile standard motel rooms but rather fall into the 'quaint and charming' category. Will definitely return.
