We stayed June 2021, and the experience was great. Staff were friendly and helpful, kudos to Yani. The room was neat, clean, well appointed for what we wanted. Awesome bed, super king! Heat pump provided a comfortable environment. Shower is brilliant with lots of pressure which I loved. The view is nothing special as you look out over a car park and commercial buildings, but you do get to see the foothills. Car parking available which is handy. Kitchenette was adequate for general use, no actual cooking appliances. Easy walking distance to shopping including Richmond Mall. Not too noisy apart from Friday night hoons! All in all highly recommended.
We arrived to warm welcome and presented with a clean tidy recently refurbished room.We had two enjoyable days in Richmond and room ammenities were adequate for our needs although a bottle opener would be handy. We would stay here again.
This motor inn is undergoing a massive renovation and whilst I was warned on the phone about it, I was not expecting the extent of the work! I have to be honest and say I nearly walked away..... But gosh I am so glad I didn't. The renovations are turning the bedrooms into everything you would want - big comfy bed, hot powerful shower, quiet night's sleep. And as for the hosting by Annette and her husband - well they are wonderful. Going out of their way to treat me so personally and ensure I was super comfortable. The location of this motor inn is also spot on - right in the heart of Richmond so I didn't need a car. Was easy for me to walk to work, take a walk up in the hills in the evening and get my groceries and takeaway. I'm back up there twice in May for business again and know I will be looked after again.…
I stayed at this motel for 5 nights just recently while visiting my father in this beautiful town. I was upgraded to unit no 15 and all I can say is wow! Spacious , clean , beautiful bed, ample room in bathroom, kitchen. The hosts are so welcomng and alot of the units have been refurbished and the rest are being done . Work is planned for the outside of the building and further work planned for the motel . I wish the owners all the best and I know I will be back !!
Stayed two nights in Unit 19. Excellent checking with Kim. Got upgraded to one of the refurbished rooms upstairs. Once you get past the public carpark and the rundown atmosphere into the refurbished room you see the place has real potential. It’s clean, it’s spacious, the wifi is great but things like one wine glass, no plates, a coat rack instead of a cupboard let it down. A shelf above the kitchen for storage, coat hooks and towel rails in the bathroom and a cover for the fan are in themselves small things, but are annoying when they’re not there. Likewise a picture or photo or two would just soften the room - certainly nothing a trip to K Mart or The Warehouse wouldn’t solve. It’d also be good for the room to be refreshed and the rubbish removed; and some extra tea and coffee would’ve been great. It’s all detail rather than substance - but it could make all the difference. Close your eyes to the rather rundown and unloved feel of the exterior of the building and courtyard - if you can get past these negatives your’re in for a great surprise.…
Great location in central Richmond. Comfortable bed, super shower and great TV in updated very spacious room. Thank you for our enjoyable stay, highly recommend. Also parking outside our unit, very handy.
Dull, late 50's decor, with a great view of the car park and light industrial units across the road. Mould on the shower mat, I didn't want to stand on it in the split level shower. What a pity we paid in advance. Pictured show the bath mat and the view from the room
As of Jan 2018, owners are upgrading the facility. We were the first to have a refurbished, updated room and it made all the difference for our experience. This place is clearly old and shabby, but I am confident that the renovations currently underway will improve the facility enormously. Our room was clean and modern, and coupled with the easily accessible parking and regional location, an overall good stay.
