Drove from Mornington Penninsula a fantastic drive with great views. Arrived at Tower Motel. (Don't judge a book by its cover) inside are some wonderfully renovated rooms. Just ask for them pay the bit extra if they ask it will still be a very competitive deal. In some areas the place is requiring some maintenance, but you can see improvements... More

Comfortable bed, clean room, nice bathroom, all good. This was a nice place to stay, easy check in, helpful concierge who advised on dinner options and booked for us, simple but lovely room. The only slight downsise is that we went for a drink at the bar at around 615pm and it was shut, but there is a big place... More

This motel was one of the few buildings to survive the tragic 2009 fire, and since then it has clearly had a lick of paint and the rooms "modernised". It is advertised as a "boutique experience" - I'm not quite sure what is "boutique" about it. The positives - it's centrally located, the room was clean and reception was friendly... More

What you see is what you get. It's really what you expect when you book a motel room. Nothing flash, but our room was clean and comfortable. Shame the WiFi isn't free in this day and age... but oh well!

We were met with the lovely owners of the place in reception who were very friendly and happy to tell you anything you wanted to know. The room is open plan with the shower and toilet not hidden at all, very different. The bed was fine and comfortable enough. Biggest downside was people smoking on the balcony outside the rooms....

Great central location close to Lake Mountain. Family room for 4 consists of king bed, one single & a trundle. Except it wasn't a trundle, just a mattress on the floor! Bathroom door didn't shut and towel hook (unusable) hanging from the wall. Tea/coffee facilities handy as was the toaster. Overall, clean but a bit over priced for what it... More

We have been there for two nights in the King room. From the outside it looks like a normal motel but the inside of the room is quite interesting. The bathroom inclusive the toilet is open plan. That takes getting used to it. Fortunately there was a portable screen (slightly broken, though) which could be used to separate the toilet... More

I'm not sure how the reviews have been so good. Honestly the place is just an average motel without daily room service. They change the towels if your ask for it, but there's no making of bed or anything. The bed was too soft, and the kettle was abit faulty. The carpet was dirty and the toilet was extremely cold....
