I have stayed there twice now and have found it very comfortable, clean and great location in the town. Staff were friendly and helpful. If I had to say anything even mildly negative it was that the pillows were too thick for me but in retrospect I realise that I should have asked to swap one (at least on the... More

Stayed recently in a larger room and 'Large' it was, plenty of space, ideal to spend time doing paper-work and that sort of thing. Room was ideal, had a spa [not used] but plenty of work space and power points for charging the Ipad & IPhone. King sized bed and pillows led towards a great sleep, TV ideally placed and... More

Clean, Comfortable and a short walk to the main street. Ice in the freezer, this is always good and not maintained by housekeeping. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. Rooms are quite large and quiet with comfy bed.

I've stayed in the Wonthaggi Motel and found it to be neat and clean, and the staff very professional. Whilst the rooms are neat huge, the amenities in them are very good, and it does not have the typical motel feel. A nice, comfortable feel and stay.
