Managed to book in very last minute and staff were very accommodating! Room was huge (1xqueen + 1xsingle). Bed was comfy, bathroom very clean. We embraced the old school vintage theme of the room and thought it was pretty cool! No dramas at this place at all! Thanks for having us!

Old fashioned motel right in the middle of Albany. Clearly dated in look and feel, but reasonably priced and very well maintained. Big room and bathroom also made up for the dated decor. I would stay there again if I was passing through and looking for a reasonably priced motel.

Albany is a lovely country town in a beautiful part of the world, and this was a lovely motel to stay in during our short visit here. It may seem somewhat out of the way on the map but Albany is small enough that everything is well within walking distance. The in-house restaurant seems popular enough though we did not...

First impression - bathroom not very clean. As I was sitting on bed, I could smell cigarette smoke coming in my room from around the door frame from someone smoking outside. Walls are thin, you can here conversations clearly.

We visited midweek just after Christmas. The receptionist was very friendly and made us feel welcome. The room was a decent size and had recently been renovated. The bathroom was new and clean. Bed was only a double but comfortable. Coffee and tea facilities and a toaster along with all the other things you expect in a motel were provided....

Location - a bit outside the main part of town and up a steep hill but nice view. Room - Surreal. It was like I was back in my childhood in a room with one of those strange bakelite units the operate the tv and radio and light and didn't work, with brown and orange decor. Bed and pillows weren't...

I chose the "budget" room as I was only staying the one night. Convenient location. Room was nothing special, but clean and acceptable. Other (more expensive) options had undergone refurbishments. I wished I had more time to explore the wonders of Albany though.

I was reluctant to try the Dog Rock after all this time as my previous experiences were only considered to be average. However I was very surprised at the room we had. It was spacious and newly refurbished by the look of it with a nice bathroom. Good value tariff as well. And they have an excellent restaurant

This was our second stay at this motel and it was great to walk into our room and to see some really nice renovations. It was nicely decorated and very clean. We also had a very comfortable sofa from which to watch the TV. The bed was comfortable so we had a good night sleep. The air-conditioning worked well so...
