This motel, which is modern but uninspiring from the outside, hides some superb rooms. Our room had a large lounge and kitchenette area, a bedroom with one of the most comfortable king beds I've slept in plus a huge bathroom which had a large spa bath and separate shower. This is a cut above most motel rooms. However, there were a few niggly points:
a) the kitchenette is meanly kitted out and literally only has the 2 tea cups, 2 saucers and 2 tea spoons. Nothing more to open a beer bottle for example.
b) our bathroom had a damp smell and the wash basin was slow to drain. However, there were no signs of damp at all and the shower worked fine.
c) internet was via a cable and cost $6 for our overnight stay.
Location-wise, this motel isn't in town, but it is very convenient for Sovereign Hill. It's probably about 2kms outside of the CBD. It's also on a busy main road, but that didn't bother either of us as we both had a great night's sleep there.
It looks as if there's a restaurant/bar there, but it was closed that night. However, there was a reasonable choice of restaurants within easy walking distance.
