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.

They were very helpful, friendly and welcoming. Had a great meal, a fabulous wine from their great selection and a room with a view. They couldn't have been more accomodating, we had a very early start and the Breakfast in a box delivered to our room the night before was a treat of local produce! I'll be back.

Had a great short stay in a clean and spacious family room with a gorgeous country view (was absolutely stunning in the morning with the animals grazing on the hill). Parking at the door great with all our gear. Owners and staff went out of their way to make our stay an enjoyable one and were very flexible around COVID and kept us updated on the evolving regional lockdown. You can confidently book this motel and know you will be looked after. Lovely family run place with a kids playground (big bouncy trampoline and other equipment and animals that my son loved). Friday night pizza night at the motel restaurant did not disappoint, beautiful wood fired pizza, cosy in front of the fire and my husband enjoyed the gin bar! We will be back as soon as we can.

I had to work up at Mt Buller for a couple of months and found Merrijig Motor Inn on my way up. The staff there are so lovely and were so accomodating for myself and my colleagues. They have great food in the resturant and awesome service. The rooms have a great layout and there is heaps of parking space which was really helpful. The views from the property are beautiful and there is a small creek and waerfall not far away that you can walk to for fishing or swimming. Highly reccomend supporting this local business!

We didn’t stay here but went for dinner on Parma night (Wednesday’s). The food came out quite fast, was a really decent serve size and was delicious. I had the American and my partner had the Irish. Both were so good. We wish we could have tried them all (there’s so many great options). I recommend booking as it was quite busy.

Booking was problematic.
Rebooking due Lockdown was very problematic.
Staff communication is accusing, is rude and inappropriate.
End result - GONE TO THE ACCC

Do yourself a favour and Consider staying elsewhere !

Cheers 🥂

I’ve been coming the motor inn for many years. It has always been a really fun and friendly experience up until now. The new management don’t appear to like guests or understand it’s not really a thing to turn away people from a bar on an AFL semi final weekend. Pretty flat and uninspiring ‘service’. Next time, I’ll stay in Mansfield. No wonder this place is empty…

Staff are rude, and picked and chose who they served. We were waiting in line and when other customers walked into the store after us, they were served first. When questioning this, we were attacked saying they were already in line from the night before...?

When providing feedback, Mindy attacked with incorrect information rather than taking on the feedback. Not the attitude you'd expect for someone in hospitality.

After a very difficult day in the High Country, following a motor vehicle accident, we stayed at the Merrijig Motor Inn. The staff were very kind, friendly and hospitable and went out of their way to help us get back on our feet again. Thank you! The room was very spacious and well designed for a family. The breakfast was delicious!

Accommodation, bar food & general store providing friendly & welcoming service. We dropped in for a coffee & feed after cycling Mt Buller. The barista coffee was well made & the burgers fresh & tasty. Highly recommend the veggie & haloumi burgers.

No wonder the place is empty….. poor hospitality, flat old pillows, freezing rooms, and no footy on in the bar.

New owners have taken this place to the toilet.

After coming here for years, I’ll be staying somewhere else next time!
