I didn’t have a booking but they found me a table in a reasonably full place with restrictions. Great chicken parmigiana, have to love the vegetables served in country hotels, fresh and delicious. The Parma was thick and juicy, good sauce and topping. Well worth the drive

The Hotel has a number of motel like rooms. The room I stayed in was a 3 bedroom, one bathroom family room. The room looked new with spacious bathroom bedrooms and a separate lounge area. Walk across to the pub for dinner with good pub food and cold beer. Good value.

I think it was a great deal for me and my friends. The family rooms were very spacious and the rooms very clean as well. They provided a lot of amenities and the heater is the life saver in cold winters. It also has a microwave and mini fridge. The hotel also has a bar and restaurant in case you want to enjoy food or buy drinks. Overall great stay. Would surely recommend it. 5/5.

3 star hotel with spacious, clean rooms, effective heating!! Staff were just delightful (thank you Hayley for a beautiful, warm, sincere greeting). The Steak and Kidney Pie? - the selection of choice for the four of us was a winner! I'm currently considering this as a destination ride for our 'Ulysses' Motorcycle Club.

Room Tip: A quiet time as Melbourne was in Covid 19 lockdown. However, it is a country township so limited...

We spent 2 nights at the motel over the labour day Sunday and Monday nights. The place is a typical roadhouse motel centrally located for those who wish to explore the surrounding areas of Murrindindi Shire. The bistro and restaurant is a plus as we can have meals at the same location. We are stayed in the older motel rooms but are happy with the price and facilities in general. The beds are new and comfy.

We stayed for two nights in January, this hotel/motel was central to all the areas we were visiting, Taggerty 12km. Alexandra 10km. and Eildon 13km. Thornton is a small quiet town where the people are friendly and helpful, The Rubicon hotel/motel was very clean and the gardens well maintained, the staff were very obliging. We ate at the bistro where the meals were of a high standard and priced very reasonably, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be returning.
