Great location in the small town. Staff are friendly and helpful. The pool is very cold but refreshing on hot day. Rooms are clean (mattress was a bit lumpy for my liking). Appreciated having a full sized-fridge. Sorry to find the BBQ was broken. Lots of space for kids to run around.

We booked this motel because we couldn’t find anything else. The photos made it look like our room would be the one that hadn’t been renovated yet and was a bit dated - the last room in the motel kind of thing. Ignore the photos - Murchison motels is fabulous! 100% clean, fabulous linen and beds, a pillow selection to satisfy the fussiest sleeper, a cleverly stocked kitchen and beautiful artisan toiletries that felt like a local treat - you can’t take them home but they feel great. To wash clothes is free in a commercial size machine. The clothesline in the owners garden is epically large. You can pay for a drier too. There’s even a pool for younger kids - was that even on the website? It’s super central for the cafes and shops .... we would absolutely recommend staying here.

Stayed here with our family (including 3 kids under 5). Room was extremely modern, neat and tidy. Comfortable beds. The kids enjoyed a splash in the pool. Loved the toiletries which were from a local producer. Very friendly checkin / check out.
