The owners Graeme and Lily are extraordinarily kind and thoughtful people. Nothing was a problem. More than that they solved issues I thought before arrival may involve some discussion or negotiation; I should never have worried in advance because Graeme and Lily smiled, laughed and put my wife, myself and our family unit at total ease. I’m am So grateful to them and their team of hard workers. I’m planning a return visit in the next 12 months to use their motel as our base and explore as far afield as Apollo Bay, Skenes Creek, Forest, Beech Forest, Gellibrand, Wild Dog Creek Rd, the Great Otway National Park, Birragurra, Winchlesea, Deans Marsh and much, much more. Thank you from the depths of our hearts Graeme and Lily. xx

Management were very understanding when we complained about an odour in the room. They attended to it straight away.

We booked as we just needed somewhere to stay the night and were pleasantly surprised. The rooms were fresh and clean, looking like they had been redone fairly recently. Bathroom was spotless and the towels fluffy. We struggled with getting many channels on the tv, but there was a small DVD library available at reception. All in all, we would definitely stay again.

Nice, modern and clean rooms. Stayed during a busy weekend yet rooms were quiet and comfitable. Reception hands out free DVD for kids to borrow and play in bedroom TVs. Outside table and chairs we used to have dinner. Plenty of spare pillows in the rooms.
