Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Good little motel, rooms were clean and beds comfortable. Water was an issue, not hot water, and pressure no good. Unable to really have a shower. We spoke to owner when we left who said they were going to look into it, hopefully they do for other travelers!

We really enjoyed our time here. Our room was way nicer than we expected, clean, smart, spacious and with a well equipped kitchenette. Very comfortable beds with extra blankets if needed. Dog friendly too! As it’s a motel, parking is right outside your room. The location is good, right on the Main Street through the lovely town of Meeniyan, and right next to a great pub, with a good choice of meals for vegetarians (unusual in rural Australia!). Close to the railway walk, which is beautiful, and quaint shops and art galleries. A very good Centre to explore this part of Victoria. Very friendly staff, always willing to help. I feel a bit mean to give just four stars, but the windows all needed a good clean!

Super clean, cosy room. Classic older style motel, but beds very comfortable and reception welcoming. Excellent Wifi connection. Near road but quiet at night, lovely countryside. Pub next door for excellent meal, great coffee at cafe walking distance next to local IGA. Would highly recommend.

Lovely old style motel with renovated rooms which are small but cosy. The surrounding gardens are nice and the bike trail is across the road. Right in town so walk to everything in the lovely little town. Friendly helpful new owners. Parking onsite

We loved this pub from the moment we walked in ! Weary on our way back from a big day on the Prom, in need of some good pub grub. We were not disappointed ! The meals were generous in size and delicious in taste.. roast of the day with fresh local veg. The dining room and bar were both buzzing with families enjoying their local pub. No pokies and a warm, welcoming ambience. This pub ticked all the boxes.

Had a lovely weekend at Meeniyan Motel. New owners are very welcoming, room very comfy and opened out onto spacious lawns and pretty garden. Right next to the pub and gorgeous main street shops and cafes. Didn’t have time for a bike ride on the rail trail this time but great to know the motel has bikes available for guests. Super relaxing place to stay!

This is very much a budget motel and it provides exactly what a budget motel should - a bed, a shower and a cup of tea or coffee. The outdoors and indoors could both really use a bit of a spruce up if it wants to go for anything more than the most budget of markets, but it does it’s own thing just fine. Just don’t ask it to be an upmarket place when it clearly isn’t. And no, it’s not “cheap” but it does have a good location on the Main Street of Meeniyan with lots of great eateries nearby and plenty of art and the rail trail. For a one night “somewhere to sleep” it does the job just fine and the welcome was warm and helpful when we checked in.

Very friendly staff. Motel nothing special but room clean and comfortable. Good shower. Great location, walking distance up street to local shops and next door to pub. Very quiet, no traffic noise. Outside is a bit messy.

Great location, close to the pub, rooms are comfy, everything is here, shower and bathroom are good with great water pressure. Could do with a tidy outside, but good value for the location..bookings were easy and check was seamless. Location is the key.

On opening door, there was a strong smell of cigarette smoke. Linen on bed smelt of cigarette smoke. Otherwise room clean. Newish decent size bar fridge. Suggest turn off unless using as noisy every hour when motor runs. Room light switch on left on entrance to room behind microwave. Large bathroom Liquid soap , shampoo and conditioner in shower. Only turn the cold tap slightly to adjust temperature otherwise you have a cold shower. Towels ok. But thin. Kids size spa bath. Bed was comfortable and pillows as expected in motels. Very old and needs rebuilding or major Reno. Great location in Main Street of town next to pub but very close to main road in town so can hear traffic noise. Thin curtains with no blockout and window above door with no curtain. Cost $120 for the night ,queen size bed? Plus a single in room, table and 2 chairs, toaster and microwave, glasses and cups plus utensils. Airconditioner Won’t be returning.
