            Good and comfortable hotel stay”

            Friendly and efficient staff, central location, parking on site

            I stayed here the night before the Run Geelong event as it was very close to the start/finish line. Comfortable and large room with tea/coffee making facilities, a toaster, fresh water and some biscuits. Wish I had known there was a DVD player as a movie would have been great for my early night, however the hotel has some Foxtel channels with movies complimentary.

            Pros: Very clean, nice rooms. Great location, close to restaurants on Malop St. Cons: A little pricey for a motel? Also if you pay by debit rather than credit card there's a $200 bond (which is fine and understandable, I just didn't know about it when booking).

            This place is under great management and has the best staff in the hospitality industry. They are always so helpful, kind, and go out of their way to provide as good as or better customer service as I've experienced from the best 5-star hotels. I have stayed there twice under different circumstances and had a great time, both trips. Give them your business, you won't regret it.

            Booked thru Agoda because you get velocity points but found that the place we booked was really great. I would stay there again. Just a note for Agoda, booking thru the website does not let you know how many velocity points you get for booking a particular hotel, if Agoda knows what your virgin velocity number is and how long it is before your points are added to your velocity balance. It would be reassuring to know that the velocity points are going to awarded.

            Warm, cosy bed, clean

            We arrived at the motel at night and left early the next morning. One of the memorable things of this stay is the restaurant just located next to the reception building. I think it is being manned by a young couple. I love how although we reached the motel so late at night (about 8pm), this restaurant was still open. As Asians, we were very happy with the food proportion and pricing. Usually we have to share one main between the 2 of us, but at this restaurant, we could have 1 main each, which allowed us variety for our dinner. The food was rather tasty. It was also winter when we arrived, and being Singaporeans who are not very accustomed to the cold weather, heating was very important to us. The motel room's heater was installed on wall right opposite the bed, and heated up pretty quickly, so we were comfortably warmed up for the night.

            So Agoda has a price for accommodation. I rang the Motel to price match. She advised that Agoda shouldn't have the price so low and she was going to change it. She advised Agoda double book often. She wouldn't price match. I booked 2 nights through Agoda. We arrived late arvo. The room was reasonably clean. Lights and desk dusty. Bed was made but by the look of it by a child. We got home the next day. The bed was pulled up and the pillows thrown on the bed. No clean towels provided. Wouldn't recommend for all of these reasons.

            Big room, but very dark due to brick walls, and absolutely awful low energy light bulbs, far too low wattage for the room. Had to have 4 lights on in order to be able to read at night! So they are not energy saving. One decent 100w bulb would have been far better.
