My husband and I booked a family room. Unfortunately the 'family' room was very small with an equally small dining table. Funny that the photography on the net made the room look a good pick. The room allowed for no personal space, cant imagine how a family of 4 would have gone. We thought 180 a night was cheeky for...

Booked by phone, made arrangements to check in before 2pm (which was no drama or stress) and very much appreciated. As we were able to get in a 90minute sleep before an afternoon function. So well done and many thanks D & D :) The room was fantastic, fresh everything (nothing tired, out dated or warn out) The shower was...

Only stayed one night but was very pleseant. The staff were extremely friendly and had a great chat on checking. The beds were comfortable and the motel was very nice and quite even though it was very central to the town centre. Great value for money and would recommend to anyone looking for value for money and a good location

The Elm Tree ideally located near the centre of town, right next door to KFC if you fancy their food. David is a great host and very hospitable and took time to explain how to make the most of my time in Warrnambool. Appreciate that he was able to help me with a phone charger when I left my behind....

Ideal location at the start of our drive along the Great Ocean Road. Very clean and modern, just off the A1 Highway but very quiet, best shower in 6 weeks of travelling around Australia, handy for great local restaurants. Also very handy to spend a couple of hours doing the first stage of the GOR then coming back to Elm...

A small, simple motel that pampers perfectly. The rooms are beautifully finished, comprehensively equipped, clean, fresh and modern. Power points galore! Free wifi. Very quiet location but only a couple of minutes walk to the centre of town. Extremely friendly and helpful hosts who made the stay of 4 nights that much more enjoyable. Motels don't come much better than...

Everything was great about this motel. The cleanliness, décor, position and comfort. Diana and David were exceptional in the help they offered me especially as I am elderly and travelling alone. To me cleanliness is the first priority when staying anywhere.

Spent 4 nights here. David and Diana were friendly, helpful and courteous hosts. The room was extremely clean and comfortable. Bathroom was large and had a big Shower with strong water flow. Cleanest motel we have stayed in. Would certainly return to Elm Tree Motel next time in Warrnambool.

This is a excellent place to stay. Staff are extremely friendly helping you find places to see and also dine out at. Hotel is very central to everything. It's very clean and I loved the shower head. Just like home.

The room looked really new. Bathroom fixtures were sparkling new. The bathroom was big and the rain shower refreshing. Sleep quality was excellent. Located within a 2-min drive from the CBD and the beach. KFC right beside the motel, though we didn't eat there. Definitely stay again if we revisit.
