Dear Staff of Buchan Motel

We so enjoyed our three night stay with you during our recent square dance weekend.

As a well-travelled couple we have enjoyed some lovely accommodation throughout Australia.

Your motel with its modern, bright and comfortable accommodation, stunning views from every window and ample and delicious breakfast provisions is probably the best regional or city motel in which we have stayed.

Thank you.

Lyn and,Ken Nicholls


Great find

Never mind the hand painted sign or the rough path up to the door, this boutique motel is perhaps the best small town country motel i have stayed in. Large comfortable room bed and bathroom, with glorious view from a back verandah.Dont worry about the pub being next door, but grap some beautiful steaks from the produce store and use the bbq and just drink in the view. Super friendly owners and good continental breakfast.make it a great experience before driving the Barry way.Almost next to caves


Excellent - great stay

My family of 4 spent 1 night before we went to the caves. It was great, so clean, excellent linens, and the best continental breakfast we have ever had. The teenage children decided this was a highlight of our traveling adventure. Plenty of room to kick the footy and enjoy the views. Best “Buchan” hotel we have stayed in in this price bracket.



One of the best, biker friendly motels I’ve stayed at. Welcoming hosts, with plenty of local knowledge and assistance. Bikes parked right outside your room, partially under cover. Nestled high up, on the side of a hill overlooking a beautiful view across to the mountains. Central to some of the best alpine riding in Victoria. Kangaroos grazing in the grounds of the motel, while being a short work into town to the pub for dinner. highly recommended.


Good morning

We would like to compliment you on your delightful motel. The room was cleaned to within an inch of it’s life and spacious (love it), the breakfast was very generous, the outlook is beautiful and you have done a wonderful job with your refurbishments.

We plan to come back and will take every opportunity to recommend your motel.

Thank you and cheers,

Karen & Geoff Butchers 

Best Motel

Lovely views. Very clean room. Super friendly and accommodating staff. Kangaroos on the hills outside your balcony. Excellent breakfast provisions. Best motel we’ve ever been to. It’s very luxurious for a ‘motel’ : it should be called a retreat!
