The room was spotlessly clean, management were very friendly and helpful. The location is good with easy access to parks and the main street. Good outdoor kitchen if you want to cook up a bbq. Highly Recommend.

Beautifully clean, great bed and excellent location. The room was very well maintained and contained everything you need in a motel. Just off the highway but minimal noise. Check in was friendly and helpful. We paid extra for continental breakfast in our room on Easter Friday. Highly recommend.

Our cycle group stayed here at the start of our 5 day cycle ride. The motel is good, if a bit close to rail crossing with many freight trains sounding their whistles during the night. Facilities very good and service excellent. Easy walk into town for shops, cafes etc, and around Lake Anderson.

The owners are amazing. Fantastic spacious and very clean modern room. Service at reception and the BIRD N BIKE Cafe run by them which is attached at the front of the Motel is second to none. Friendly, bubbly nature and fantastic food. Locals and travelers like ourselves where constantly dropping in. I had a delicious big breakfast and the coffee was awesome. If in the area you must drop in for food or accommodation.

Booked ahead and even when we crossed the railway line didn’t realise it was so close: right next door. Our first realisation was when the first train rumbled by, so noisy, but there were only three between 7 and 10 pm and only two after until 7am. The two after 10 didn’t wake me so it must have been not too bad. The room was clean and comfortable and otherwise quiet. As we were distant from the office the wifi was a bit fickle but ok. The bed was comfortable and we slept fine.

We stayed at this motel making our way from NSW during the summer bushfires and we literally booked this on the road. We received a warm welcome while booking and on check in. The hosts were amazing and the room was spacious and spotless. No hesitation in recommending this motel.

A super motel with great hosts Julie and Chris. Lovely large and well equipped rooms, clean and comfortable at a reasonable price and within easy strolling distance of the charming little town of Chiltern. If you are travelling from Melbourne to Sydney and want to stop off somewhere, do it here.
