Accommodation in a good location, just a short walk across the road to Sovereign Hill and a minute drive to the main strip. Our room was a good size, very clean and reasonably priced for what we got. Surprisingly the WIFI actually worked really well as we had the furthest room from the router and didn't have to rely on...

Very clean and comfortable. Better than staying at Crown and great value for money. the bedroom was separated from the lounge/ kitchenette area and it had the feel of a one bedroom unit. Handily located for Sovereign Hill visitors.

We were surprised at the size of the room and the beautiful bathroom renovation. We slept well and the manager was very attentive to our requests. Unfortunately we couldn't get wifi on our iPads and would have scored higher but it was not a big issue. Would definitely visit this motel again.

An excellent room and good service.. The welcome from the receptionist was very warm. The room was pleasant and well appointed. I had the front room and there was a.very small amount of traffic noise. Visitors to Sovereign Hill will find this an excellent location.

Reviewed 21 February 2017 via mobile

Very nice place with good fast wifi. I seem to find many hotels these days with a joining door to the next room. The doors here provide no privacy and you can hear every move the person in the room next door makes, spoils a very good experience otherwise.

Thank you for your kind review Petrus. Sorry to hear that you were able to hear the guests next door, even though its a double door. We are looking into a stronger block out barrier between the doors, so next time should be a lot quieter, we look for ward to seeing you again then.

I booked a room for myself and my 80 year old Mum who has limited mobility and they were very accommodating. We had an accessible room on the ground floor, right near the front. My sister & her husband also booked and were given the room right next to us - a joint room - which made things even easier....
