Clean and comfortable and easy to access without having to drive into Canberra from eastern Victoria.Rooms not ultra modern or super luxurious but well appointed with everything you need (except a hair dryer in room 5). Staff friendly and helpful. Surrounding traffic noises quite distracting but we slept with earplugs without any problems.

We arrived around 3 hours late but had called the motel to let them know ( called at the time of our expected arrival). On arrival my husband went in while I sat with our very tired (from 10 hours of travel that day) 1 year old and 3 year old. He took a very long time in reception so... More

Dear guest, you booked room without giving us your credit card to secure the booking, while asking us to hold the room till 6:00PM. We did keep our promise to hold your room till 6PM, however you did not show up till closed to 8PM. Without your credit card pay for the room, we retained our right to resell the... More

The motel is basic but clean and tidy with all the expected inclusions. There is wifi in room which is reasonably easy to use. There is a small table in the room with a microwave for any heating of food. There is parking onsite.

We decided to stay in this Motel but on arrival we were told that we were booked into a room on the top floor.

So we had nowhere to stay but the management of Crest were helpful. We tried the Wallaby cos it was the closest. It was ok. but the microwave was dirty and didn't work so we had cold dinner which we had brought with us. Perhaps it had not been reported by the last tenants. It was much more expensive than...

Spacious room, comfortable bed, convenient location not to far to walk to supermarkets, hotel etc. fresh milk upon arrival. first time access was a bit ordinary but once you have your bearings it's ok. road noise is fairly high. Wi-Fi was chopping in & out. Motel restaurant is not open.

I spent 2 nights at The Wallaby and had a really good stay. I was comfortable, travelling solo and felt safe. The staff were friendly and the room had everything I needed. I enjoyed watching movies on the Cable TV. Recommend it if you are looking for fairly budget, clean, comfortable and quiet accommodation. Great! I will be back.

Thank Charmed F
