"Really enjoyed our stay!"

What a beautiful place to stay! I was pleasantly surprised by how modern and clean our room was.
I think we got a newly renovated room (room 12) which was a spacious 1-bed apartment. Really enjoyed our stay and Linda was great over the phone, accommodating an extra guest at the last minute. Would surely recommend it!

"Our go-to in Warrnambool"

Great location – was really quiet even though the motel was full and is close to the town centre. Stayed here a year ago and the renovation has been amazing – good value for money as the quality of the room has improved a lot but the price has barely gone up.
Thank you Linda for your local knowledge. It’s our go-to whenever in Warrnambool.

"Everything we needed!"

We stayed in one of the newly refurbished units over the long weekend. It was clean and comfortable and everything we needed for our stay in Warrnambool. The location is great – within a stone’s throw of the central business district and restaurants, and the hosts are friendly and accommodating. We’ll be back, the same time next year.
