We stayed here to be close to the Tinamba Hotel as we had booked for dinner. What we didn't realise is that this motel was a really good place filled with lovely country hospitality and it was right next door to our dining spot. The rooms are placed around an indoor pool and despite a group of younger horse women...

Our family loves staying at Happy Days. Ron and Leana are the perfect hosts for a bed and breakfast, so friendly, helpful and they went above and beyond to ensure we had a great stay. The scenery is amazing and there is a beautiful nook for everyone to enjoy themselves. The amenities are awesome, the pool, spa and pool table...

Set in the lovely rural setting of Central Gippsland,Happy Days was a real find. We had organised to attend a winery lunch at the nearby Tinamba Hotel and it was fantastic to be able to walk straight from that to our digs next door - no need for a designated driver!! The motel itself is quirky in its design -...

Thank you Peter, It's easy to be friendly when your guests are the same. We had a happy bunch of guests that weekend, you and Mark included. The joy just becomes infectious. Boof is the ideal concierge dog, so easygoing. I think his doggy friends sense that. We love our life and we love sharing The Happy Days experience. All...

We had our first visit to Gippsland and found HappyDays on the net. It was a great find! Leanda and Ron have worked hard to create a very attractive facility. Despite the cold outside, our room was cosy and welcoming, as was the welcome from our hosts. They provide a 'guests' kitchen' and lounge that has all that you would...

We had the pleasure of staying here as we were dining at the Tinamba Hotel next door. Wow, this place is gorgeous. Hard to explain, but we were very welcomed by Ron & Leanda. All the rooms and I think there are only 5 of them, are very tastefully decorated and very clean. The bed was extremely comfortable. There is...

This motor inn is not what we expected; however on arrival we were greeted with such warmth! Not your 5-star country retreat however the premises are attentive and homely with space to wander and enjoy the expanse of paddocks to smell the countryside. An excellent location next to one of the most amazing award-winning restaurants of the Amba Lounge. Our...

Stayed at Happy Days for our son's wedding. Reception next door at "Tinamba Hotel", so convenient. A very hospitable and friendly stay. Rooms are fabulous, clean, spacious with great facilities.

It was a very pleasurable shock to see the 'upside down' layout, with all rooms facing an internal under-cover recreation area. The generous and varied supplies for breakfast were welcome, and the actual accommodation - while not 'upmarket' - was clean, well provisioned and comfortable. My only complaint is the lack of reception personnel. I could not connect to the...
