Rooms were fine but there were difficulties with management and their cooperativeness! There were issues about times of departure despite previously negotiating a late checkout. The demeanour of the proprietor was scary and virtually rude and we weren't sure what the problem was. We were shocked by the attitude of management.

The reservation of three rooms was made by one guest. She was not paying for the rooms some one else was. She never requested a later check out - nor did any other member of the party. At checking in on the Thursday night l was asked if payment could be made on Friday morning - l agreed to this.... More

Thanks again for a great stay in your exceptionally clean motel. This motel has everything you need and is quiet. Plenty of parking space and the rooms are aired. Thanks also for placing us at the end of the row of rooms when requested, much appreciated. Cheers Jacki

Nice tidy room, good bed and big shower. Staff were friendly and helpful. Internet connection is not great, goes on and off, but not the fault of the motel (external supplier, at a cost). A bit out of the centre of town which was good. Lots of trucks on the road out the front, but this wasn't a problem. Stayed... More

My Mum and I stayed in a room each on 21st March. I didn't have high expectations (unfortunately due to some of the reviews) but we found the rooms very satisfactory and extremely CLEAN! Basic rooms with everything you need and even though on the main road, quiet. Thanks for providing a great overnight stay. Jacki

I am happy that you enjoyed your stay with us Jacki. We are particular about cleanliness - many of our guest's have complimented us on that. People are surprised it is quiet as we are set back from the road and behind a large hedge which gives you privacy. Many are unaware that we have a large garden and barbecue... More

We stayed there for one nite instead of paying Warnambool high price.We found the rooms clean and comfortable with everything you needed and plenty of room to park with a large trailer. The bathrooms have been freshly updated were lovely. Would definitely stay again.

Annalise W, Owner at Terang Motor Inn, responded to this review

Thank you for your lovely review Kathy. Not many people realize we are close to Warrnambool (only 30 minutes down the highway) and we do not charge the same high prices on long weekends nor do we have a minimum night stay. Which we believe is not fair as some guests only need one or two nights accommodation. More

I stayed here for a couple of nights in May and was very disappointed. The owner can be very unfriendly and while puts on a good face does not like to be questioned about anything. Rooms are very cold, breakfast is minimal and not very good. The location is really good, it is quiet and the property is well maintained.... More

I was a bit taken aback by your review. If you stayed in May why was you review posted at the end of July? Normally people email a review within a couple of days of their stay.

This motel was ideal for our overnight stay while attending a wedding. The 2 rooms we had were freshly painted with new carpet and bedspread. Bed was comfortable (I like a fairly firm mattress); there was a small table and 2 chairs, a 2 seater lounge and all the essentials you would expect (bar fridge, tea/coffee making, iron).

Thank you Janice for the lovely review. We are particular about our rooms. We strongly believe there should be no cleaning/chemical smell in the room - especially important for asthma suffers. All of our units have been repainted and refurbished. Rooms 1 and 2 are double rooms (queen bed). P.S. l hope you the suit has arrived. More

If you're passing through & don't want to pay Warrnambool prices, you can't do better than to book a room here. After hours of driving across state, with temps in the mid-40's, the inn was a cool, air-conditioned haven. Sinking into to the comfy 2-seater, it was great to kick off the shoes & put the feet up.
