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.

Great little motel right on the golf course. Comfortable and clean. Very handy to restaurants and shopping. This complex may be of an older style and build the rooms were generous and well set out.
Take in a walk around the olde town and enjoy fresh fruit.

Arrived an hour early but wasnt a problem to host who was really lovely and friendly. These motels are old!! But are some of the cleanest ive ever stayed in, your staff are a credit to you!!
We had a unit overlooking golf course so quite entertaining at times, and very peaceful,also having outdoor furniture to sit outside and eat and drink, fabulous big well looked after grounds here
Bed was really comfy and great for bikers as you can pop your bike in their locked up garage.
Shower was good also they supplied shampoo and body wash
Everything was in the room that was needed, but just wondering if they may update in the future and a heated towel would be great, especially in winter, thanks for having us.

Amazing! Thank you so much for sharing your experience. We really appreciate it and are glad you had a good time. We would love to update the bathrooms in time, and think a heated towel rail would be great too. See you again soon! Cheers, Carrina and Tony

Our unit overlooked the golf course giving us a wonderful view. The unit had everything we needed including salt and pepper and paper towels. We were within walking distance of an excellent coffee shop and the town.
The hosts were very helpful and friendly while the cleaning staff did an A plus job. We will be staying here again. Highly recommend this place for couples who want a peaceful environment.

We had four nights at Lake Dunstan Motel and were delighted to be staying there. Our room was spacious, light and airy (on the corner with windows two sides) with a beautiful view over the golf course and lots of entertainment watching players. Not a new motel but spotlessly clean and very well equipped and comfortable.. Easy walk to supermarket, cafes etc and lovely pathway right outside running along the side of the golf course to the Heritage Precinct. With lots of outside space it would also be good for families and perfect for golfers and cyclists. The staff were amazing - so friendly and helpful. It was a real pleasure to stay here and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend the motel or return there.

We did a last minute booking here as we had a weekend away without plans around central. This motel was reasonably priced well presented, clean & tidy. The host was friendly and we were very appreciative that he told us about a local event on that night' which we would've missed if he hadn't mentioned. Great hospitality. Comfortable motel with a fantastic shower.

Great spot, lovely room, super clean, comfortable bed (with quality bedding). This is an excellent choice if staying overnight in Cromwell. You have everything you need here, heating good (below zero outside, but warm as toast inside).

Glad we stayed here - the room was a good size, close to the shops and check-in very friendly. A short walk to mini-golf and a kids playground if you are looking for a fun way to kill an hour. Nice outlook on to grass.
