I have now stayed multiple times at the Heathcote Retreat Motel and each/every time I have stayed the friendliness/professional approach/fabulous attitude towards me as a guest is nothing less than outstanding. From the time of making a booking/the luxury suites (without the high price tag you could expect) and those delicate/personal touches not often seen serve to provide you the...

We stayed in the front 'cottage'' style accommodation. There is plenty of room, and the kitchen is well stocked with utensils, cutlery and plates. The floors are polished concrete and there is pretty interesting art on the walls. There is a bit of road noise, and the walls/floors echo a bit if the kids are inside. There is a lovely...

My wife and I stayed at this 1950's style roadside motel accommodation. A 1990's wall mounted air-conditioner that was so loud you couldn't hear yourself let alone go to sleep plus an obvious lick of paint did not impress. It is also located on the outskirts of town so a short walk to ammenities is not an option. It was...

A group of 4 families stayed two nights while visiting the local area. The 3 bedroom house was extremely spacious and well appointed. The motel unit was large. The beds were very comfortable, the showers were fantastic and the amenities were generous. We loved the accessibility to the town centre making it easy to explore the region. We loved our...

Heathcote Retreat has undergone major renovations since my last visit. We had a two bedroom accommodation, modern, clean and efficient for tired travellers. The only minor issue would be the couch , base cushion on sliding downwards. Heathcote itself needs evening restaurants , nothing but takeaway or a hotel.

The location is just fabulous, very convenient for our winery visits. The room was extremely comfortable - great beds, spotless rooms, hot shower and all the amenities you could ask for. Easy access to the key pads (if you haven't had too much wine) and a contact number published for emergencies - just perfect. One tiny thing I ask is...

From the moment I contacted the property to make my enquiry I experienced the best customer service. Natala and Georgie were able to accommodate my unique situation and were very flexible when circumstances changed last minute. The property is HUGE! Great set up for a large group or family. Three well sized bedrooms that guests can escape to for their...

We stayed in a double room and this motel had all we needed for our short stay. The bed was very comfortable with all the normal features you would expect. The fact that there is no reception on site was not a problem especially as we did not arrive until the wee hours.

Hello Missieo Thanks for taking the time to review your stay at Heathcote Retreat Motel. Sorry to hear it was not all positive. Apologies for the lamps not working, running a motel involves constant maintenance issues and we appreciate hearing about them so they can be fixed prior to other guests staying. The mattresses are new and we have had...
