Our room was amazing. It was very well cleaned and had the basic amenities. We had a comfortable and memorable stay. The manager was a lovely person too. Thank you to all the staff who served us and made our stay pleasant. Gunjan
We had booked an apartment at the Best Western at the last minute due to attending a funeral. Sheryl at the front desk, allowed us to have our apartment early prior to the usual check in time and her service and assistance was very much appreciated. It was a very spacious apartment at that. Some features included a full lounge/ dining area and a fully equipped kitchen with a full size fridge/ freezer - not the usual small 80 litre variety, however it is an apartment for several people. Beds were comfortable, both bathrooms had showers, basins, toilets and all toiletries. The spa bath did have a few dirty rings around it though, so it was not used. The only issue we had was the front main bedroom with the balcony. There was the traffic noise going past most of the night and with the apartments being allocated at the front of the property along a main road, didn't help with sleep quality. Not sure this was because it was a Friday night or unusually busy, but not much you could do about it. The motel does extend further back into the property, which looks to be a better option if you are requiring anything smaller than the apartments.
Stayed for 2 nights and loved the size of the rooms. Shower pressure was fabulous and the bathroom was clean as well. The only negative was the pathetic attempt at making our beds on day 2. Blankets just thrown over and not tucked in - might as well not bothered.
Excellent customer service . Polite friendly staff . Great value on family room. Lovely walks nearby . We arrived late and just stayed one night. Reception were super helpful to accommodate our needs.
Many of these rooms are like small apartments without shared walls. It's always a lovely place to stay. About 1.5km from the centre of town, spacious and always peaceful. Rooms are huge and plenty of parking.
The hotel needs a detailed clean and a complete update. The shower screen was broken and the decor extremely tired. The website makes the place look beautiful but the rooms look like log cabins which is fine but
Pathetic customer service. They know how to charge money on the credit card but does not know how to generate tax invoice. We checked out on 5th Jan after 3 night stay but have not received the tax invoice until today (20th Jan), despite making 7 phone calls to followup, writing emails, even have booking.com representative call the property. The lady that receives the phone always says she does not know how to generate the invoices, her daughter knows how to do it but she is busy and will revert back. It is shocking to see how a reputed brand like Best Western can be so callous about their customers. 15 days after checkout, no tax invoices yet, lots of time wasted on followup, very frustrating. We are unable to claim the expenses because the property administrator is running a business not knowing how to generate invoice (but knows how to charge money on the card :-). If only i knew in advance the experience would be this harrowing, i would have never ever chosen to stay at this property.
We booked it for a cheap price and were expecting something small and basic. Surprisingly, the room was huge and better than what we expected. Theres wifi in the room and it was very tidy. Looks new. Good lighting as well. Staff was helpful. We will stay again.
We stayed here for one night after spending the day driving the great ocean road and it was a perfect stay. We had a 4 bedroom townhouse in the centre. It was extremely spacious. 2 bedrooms had a huge bed and the remaining two each had two single beds. The bathrooms are huge with towels and the bits you need. It had a lovely balcony exited from the main bedroom upstairs and a large back garden with off the road parking. The service was excellent, without asking we were given a map and told of where we could go to eat and what was in the area. Thank you Sue! Cannot recommend staying here enough!
We booked this motel as part of our Great Ocean road trip in January but as a result of the devastating fires throughout the south of the country we had to take the difficult decision to cancel our trip. Virtually every hotel we contacted to explain the situation were amazing and refunded us in full but not only did this hotel refuse to even offer a partial refund they then charged our credit card twice and to date (over a month later) have not given us a refund!! I understand completely that hotels have cancellation charges for a reason but the circumstances were exceptional and to then charge us twice and fail to refund or communicate with us is appalling!
We were traveling through from the great ocean road. They upgraded us to a 2 bedroom apartment. It was so clean and newly renovated. Lady at the front desk was so helpful and friendly. It's within walking distance to a supermarket and places to eat. Quiet street away from the main highway. We would highly recommend this property.
I booked this online for myself and my partner just for an overnight escape close to home. Somehow we were upgraded to the gorgeous #3 suite for the night ❤️ The mattress was glorious, the amenities were clean and easy to use. But the bathroom...wow! A beautiful big spa right under a glass ceiling! We will definitely return and request this same room!
We stayed at the Best Western Colonial Village Motel for an overnighter on our way from Melbourne to Adelaide. We were pleasantly surprised with the size of the rooms. The bathroom and kitchen had been recently refurbished and was great. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Would definitely recommend.
Good Best Western hotel Room are quite big, clean, well furnished with a microwave Hotel is quiet , well situated. There is space for parking car just in front of the room. It was a nice place to stay at the end of the Great Ocean Road
The two-storey apartments are spacious and well appointed. Two bedrooms and a main bathroom with spa were on the top. The lower level was a lounge, kitchenette and bathroom with shower. Everything was clean. No noise at all. Great price for school holidays.
Room was excellent, I was traveling with wife and two girls, they even upgraded us to bigger room. Lady at front desk was very helping and it was very good experience. Everything in room was working and in order.
Stayed in the 2 story apartment, amazing value for money, super close to supermarket etc and has room for kids to run around so felt more like staying in a proper bouse than a box room motel. 2 min drive to town centre but lovely and quiet at night.
We had a large room with a king size bed that was very comfortable. The en-suite was small but the shower was very good with a good flow of hot water. The room was properly serviced each day. The small kitchenette was sufficient for our needs. Wifi was good. Parking was tight but we were able to park in front of our room. Location is not convenient to central Warrnambool. The staff were friendly and helpful. The roof is metal and the rain was very noisy particularly as the unit had cathedral ceilings.
A lovely, unfortunately short stay, was had at this Hotel. Although not right in town centre, there are shops, including supermarket within walking distance. Just a short drive will take you into town and waterfront. It was nice to find a spacious clean updated hotel room with kitchen facilities, at a very reasonable price. Would definitely stay again when next in Warrnambool.
Stayed for a night at end of our drive on great ocean road. We got a bit late but it was heartening to see the lady wait up for us and help us with the ACs as we fumbled to get them going. Gives you a bit more than a motel - well spread out, spacious accommodation, functionally furnished and friendly staff. Not many motels can boast of all this !!!
Really disappointed with the facilities at this place. So many things were wrong in my room - ripped carpet, broken telephone line, broken toilet seat, really uncomfortable mattress, noisy exhaust and the list goes on. To make things worse, even the staff were utterly useless. They didn't clean the room unless I asked them (at least twice), they didn't empty the rubbish bin, they didn't replace the towels and the list goes on again. I literally had to ask them twice for everything. Next time, I would cancel my trip rather than to book with them.
We arrived in Warranambool lateish one night looking for accommodation. Went to reception to find the Best Western Colonial Village booked out, but was offered accommodation at the King Street Appartments. Staff couldn't be more friendly & helpful. The appartment was great, spacious & clean, actually 4 very spacious bedrooms, spa, back courtyard, garage, huge TV just to mention a couple of the features. Will definitely look this up again when back in Warranambool.
I stay here on a regular basis for business, the staff are great and know me by my first name, the check in is very easy and the rooms always spotlessly clean, the location is off the main highway and is very quiet,it's a short drive/walk for dinner at any of Warrnambool's restaurants.
Great place for a good nights stay. Friendly staff, clean rooms, secure,cable tv, good showers, handy kitchenette and close to shops and the centre of town. A handy place to stay after The Twelve Apostles. Thanks.
Excellent property, the ladies at the front office are great and very helpful. I have stayed here a few times now and I am happy. They have another property which is closer to town and a little more upmarket, townhouses. Good stay.
Big spacious rooms with a comfy bed. The cooked breakfast was very nice and arrived on time.Check in and out was easy and the motel is close to a shopping centre and not far from the centre of town..
Well worth staying at best western .friendly service, great price. Not cramped in with space to move and child friendly play area. Clean and well looked after premises. We would certainly stay again and recommend everyone to stay
Relative to the extraordinary low tariff, this was a 10 out of 10 overnight stay. Extremely comfortabl bed , hot hot shower, spacious room, clean, wifi and foxtel, so quiet you could hear yourself think, kitchen, and a carport. It is 1960's decor and cupboards need repair, but it is due for refurbishment soon, so I am told. Absolute bargain.
This motel is still one of the best in Victoria for value for money. The units are large and well equipped with many having kitchens and dining area, facilities include children's playing area and tennis court. The staff are very friendly and efficient making you feel welcome.
We booked last minute having decided to stop overnight in Warrnambool. The hotel is in a convenient location and easy to find. Loved that it was older person friendly with no stairs. The room was spacious and well laid out. The spa bath was a welcome surprise. Overall a great stay.
when we arrived motel on good Friday .we got upgraded to the 2 story house . we stayed for 2 days while we were touring Warrnambool . we are very pleased with how clean and fresh the rooms are. I would recommend to anybody that goes to Warrnambool to stay here . A++++
The front facade comprising the 4 2-storey 2 bedroom units looks nice esp with the tall conifer trees. Paid a higher rate as it was Easter ($350/night) and they were obviously busy. The units are big and spacious . The dining table and sofa set were a touch sticky - probably not been thoroughly cleaned for a while. The TV remote was faded and sticky as well. Sofa table was wobbly. Gas cooker was easy to use. Fridge - was so cold fruits froze in it . Microwave - digital display was not working but easy to use. Best to check the front glass doors to ensure it is locked before you leave the place - mine was not! Luckily I managed to get a key from the manager late in the night to lock it and no one came in while I was out. The tennis court ( advertised on the huge signage in front) is a bit of an understatement - Most Aussie courts are not like this. It is an uneven hard bitumen court made probably from the same material to pave the motel driveway - although freshly painted lines. Not for tennis enthusiasts. They could invest in an artificial grass court and a better net too. Motel is a bit slow too in reversing the credit card amount taken as deposit. Also , despite what the guest directory says - Best Western does not supply razors ( was advised to purchases the Coles across the road)... and I presume every other essentials listed on that list . Overall it is a conveniently located motor lodge - opposite Coles shopping centre and a 10 min drive to most tourist spots in Warrnambool
We stayed there during 2018 Easter and since we arrived to the reception the customer service was great. Sue, the manager, was amazing and swap our reservation for one of the townhouses, which pretty much is a full house. We were a group of four and the place was very nice, with 2 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. I totally recommend the place, specially the townhouse for a similar group size. The area was quiet, perfect for a relaxing escape of the noisy city, but is close to Woolies and other restaurants (a few minutes driving). I would definitively stay there again!
We stayed at this hotel on the way of our Great Ocean Road trip. The rooms were surprisingly big, clean and the kitchenette was very helpful to prepare our late meal. The location is a close distance from restaurants and stores. Highly recommended.
Lovely & clean spacious room, very quiet at night, would definitely stay again. The lady at reception was friendly & helpful. Price was good for a Saturday night. Bed very comfortable and the bathroom was spotless and big.
Had a family function on in February. We all decided to stay at this motel and catch up for a few day's. Each family booked in about 6 weeks beforehand. I rang and the person on the end of the phone said other family members had booked in and she would also book me in for a room for 2 nights.When I arrived I was told I was not booked. Told her when I rang she looked in the diary. She had my details but not transferred the information into the computer. The motel was booked out so had to find another motel Not that they cared.Very poorly run I would say.
We had a very pleasant stay, A warm welcome, extra large Queen room apartment. The room was at the back, very quiet and nice to sit outside. We had a special deal so excellent value. We would stay again.
We stayed only one night in this hotel but really liked it. They make special offers and we got a room for only 81 dollars. The owner is highly professional and nice. The roon was awesome and very clean. I would reccomend this place!!!
Old but well maintained Motel in Warrnambool. Location is spot on and staff is lovely. Spent 2 nights there and no issues at all. I'd recommend it. Value for money is definitely one of the main reasons to come here
I was really surprised by the high ranking on TripAdvisor, as I've used it for over a decade and it's always accurate. We booked last-minute based on strong reviews and were disappointed. When we arrived, the receptionist, who was not friendly, quoted us a price much higher than online. When we said we'd rather book online, she grudgingly came close to matching the online price. When we returned to our room after dinner, we discovered the heat did not work. A new (nicer) receptionist had to make two visits and fiddle with the machine for nearly half an hour before it started working. The heat never did reach to the bathroom, making for some very cold moments before and after showering. The room was dated and worn (the carpet has started to unravel in places) and a bit dirty (cobwebs on walls, stains on the carpet and sheets). The room, at least, was very large, with three beds, high ceilings and a desk, dining and sitting areas. However, you could do better. I would not recommend this hotel, nor would I stay in it again.
The hotel is fine. There is nothing wrong with it but it's all just very odd. First, the receptionist tried to charge us $10 more than their online price. Once we had a room, the heat didn't work and the receptionist couldn't get it to work for 20 minutes. It was impossible to turn a light on besides the main lights. There were tons of lights but most of them were not plugged it and there were not enough plugs to plug them in. There were bedtime lights but they too did not turn on with any variation of light switches and switches on the lights. This hotel is decently ranked in the city. Nothing in particular was a big deal and we were happy with the price, but it just was all very odd.
My wife and I visited Warrnambool to view the whale nursery at Logans Beach. We made an internet booking at Colonial Village Motel, not already knowing it. We were delighted as the venue far exceeded the norm.
I can't stress enough what a comfortable and beautiful stay we had after a long drive down the Great Ocean Road. The 2 level apartment/townhouse was so spacious and made us feel at home and the space was so nice to unwind after the day. Beds were comfy and we were almost sad to leave such a great place. If we stayed an extra night it would have been here and for future stays we will come here again.
Looked up some last minute accommodation on my smart phone and this was very well priced $90. Beautiful warm spacious unit. Huge bathroom with a spa bath and separate shower. The bed was very comfortable and had electric blanket ( the night got down to 0 degrees) Microwave and fridge came in handy too. We would stay there again .
What a lovely little place. Beautiful rooms, very clean, comfortable big beds and more than enough amenities. Motel is pet friendly - stoked that we were given such top class accomodation. Thank you, we will all certainly be back.
Eleven months since my last visit and it is as good as ever one of my favourite motels in Victoria, it is quiet, clean and spacious each unit is self contained and suitable for self catering. It is a little out of town but there is shopping centre nearby that has everything.
I stayed here back in February for three nights - one night through Wotif and the rest directly with the hotel. I was suffering a horrible cold at the time and was only staying here so as not to spread my infection to another very ill family member. There was only myself staying there but I was in a two bedroom, two level apartment and was really impressed with its overall size and the facilities it provided - it would be great for a family with so much space. There was a spa bath upstairs in the bathroom which was great (so rarely used these days but it turned out to be a bit of a godsend). The Motel is away from the main part of town - about a five or six minute drive but there is a supermarket and small shopping centre close by and it is very quiet.
Stayed only for one night but would have liked to stay longer. Very large room with a kitchen as well, Reasonable priced and excellent value. Loved the spacious layout of the entire village - rooms were like a cabin with a little veranda- 2 units were side by side so we only had one unit right next to us. Was nice and quiet. Plenty of parking. Tennis court, BBQ. Very hospitable and helpful hosts. Will definitely return.
When we arrived at Best Western colonial Village Motel, we met with the proprietor who was a genuinely lovely lady. She proceeded to upgrade us to the King Street apartments which suited our family of five perfectly. These apartments were central for groceries and allowed us easy access to the town. As we chose to phone the Motel directly to book our five night stay, rather than use a booking service, we saved money on our booking also. It made our trip very nice and we would return to either establishment again based solely on the service and hospitality.
A lovely pleasant room with a great sized bathroom, 2 big lounge chairs big tv, plenty of extra power points, and very quiet as way off the road with even a carport. Only glitch - no hair dryer so pack a travel one if you need to dry the locks every day! Friendly reception- would stay there again.
Great location, just off the main tourist area. Stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment, these are two story. Very comfy and clean but just needed to be topped off with some basic items to get a better rating. These are apartments, with full kitchen, yet almost nothing for cooking in is supplied, just a basic oven dish. Not 1 container to store any left over food in, something with a lid would have been great. In the second bedroom with two single beds, there were two windows, both window winders were broken, 1 window facing the road and the check in reception was stuck open, letting in road noise, cockatoo screaching at night and at 5.50am every day you were woken by the staff pulling up and parking under the window. It was a long weekend, so prices were at a premium $350 a night, so nice and comfy but for that price expected a little more. Their online page mentions a tennis court, bbq area and a gym. When asked about the gym receptionist pointed down the road with vague answer. Did eventually find an aquatic center in the area, there is a concrete walking track near by that we made good use of.
Quiet location, comfortable beds. Easy parking and easy to find. All the things you need when your coming in late and just need a place to stay. Close to market and bottle shop. Several dining options down the road by car.
Absolutely beautiful place to stay. So clean and tidy. We stayed here for a night and checked in late but was presently surprised when we were offered a room upgrade which was lovely. Our Hosts were all very lovely, perlite and helpful. Would love to have stayed here for a few days but due to our continued holiday plans we couldn't. Highly recommend
We stayed in Cabin No.2 for three nights for work in the area. l found it to be a good clean place to stay, at a reasonable rate for that busy time of the year. All went well with the cleaning of the room and change of towels, shower was good and hot, normal big T.V and comfortable beds.
we stayed on night in cabin 6 and it was so lovely, the second bedroom had three single beds which i thought fantastic. massive king bed in main room & everything was nice and clean. plenty of room to move around, parking right out front too. check in and check out was a breeze, staff are so friendly nothing is too much. PLENTY of soap, towels and amenities in the room. we will make this our regular place now. thankyou so much.
The room was very spacious with a kitchenette, clean bathroom, TV and plenty of space to put all of your belongings. Highly recommend for a family or couple and the grounds are also well maintained. Only issue was accessing wifi was a little difficult however they assisted us in the office, mentioning there is an upgrade in progress.
Loved this motel. Large room and kitchenette which was great to wash all our bowls and dishes we had used while travelling. Love the cabins with just 2 attached so there is always outside space and undercover parking. Having 2 beds was also a bonus. Only downside was the mould in the bathroom and rusty shower screen.
Our family have been staying at the 'Colonial' for a few years now when we visit Warrnambool & we find it a very clean, well priced, quiet accommodation close to the centre of town. When we stay at any accommodation, we wash (with hot soapy water) all our dishes, cutlery, saucepans etc that we intend using as some people just rinse their dishes under the tap. Then we're happy! I agree with Annette O, that self cleaning the dishes is a mistake as not everyone is fussy. Pillows and mattresses plus the sheets were 5 star. It's a quiet, well looked after place with lovely gardens including a tennis court. And the staff are lovely too. We'll be back.
This hotel was recommended by the Manager of a Hamilton Motel where we stayed earlier in the week. The Motel met all our expectations, Price was what we expected and was good value for money. It was very quite and our room was quite modern.
good location and value for money ideal position for city tourist spots and restaurants lady at motel very helpful and accomodating. Would recommend it for people wanting overnight stay would go back again
We stayed here initially with a 2 bedroom booking, but on arrival we were upgraded to an apartment. Fully self-contained with two bathrooms - one with a spa bath. Was quiet, clean and comfortable. Shopping centre is only a short walking distance away.. Only negative I have, and should be looked in to as I see someone else has recently complained, is finding tea/coffee/lipstick stains on the cups.. Perhaps the self-cleaning of the dishes in the apartments is to blame, but the cups should be replaced with fresh, clean ones regardless by the cleaning staff. A minor thing, but an important one. Staff were friendly and very accommodating.
This is the second time we have stayed here, the first being less than 12 months ago when we found it be default and needed accommodation quickly. We have a two bedroom apartment that can sleep three children, cooking/kitchen facilities, two bathrooms with toilet and one spa, heating/cooling and a washing machine. Great lighting too for little people at night. For $150 this is a bargain! Certainly beats a cabin in a caravan park! I honestly can't think of anything negative at all :)
We stayed at this motel for 3 nights whilst travelling the great Ocean Road. It is about a 5 minute drive to restaurant's shops etc from here. Would be a good walk. We paid $130.00 per night including breakfast which was a great deal for the winter season. The unit we were given was a good size and had everything we required. The cleaners need to pay more attention to the small details, ie stained coffee cups and previous guests hair stuck to the bathroom floor, toilet and shower. Whilst we realize that they only have a limited time to clean each unit a quick look over once finished is all it takes. We did bring this to owners attention and she supplied us with more cups and said she would speak to the staff - great outcome. The only other downside was the gentleman next door who had his tv very loud and on very late (not the owners fault) we spoke to owner about it and she moved us to a much quieter unit on our last night which we appreciated.
This is a beautiful cosy place to stay. It's close to the city Centre and there are small shops about 20mtrs away including a lovely looking bakery. The staff were lovely and the breakfast was delicious. The rooms were fresh and nice smelling. Will deffinatetly be back some time. ?????
Very clean cabin well equipped and quiet checked out most of the rooms in preparation for a group visit all were of a very high standard. Cleaning staff were very friendly and did a thorough job. Front desk was very friendly and efficient I would highly recommend this establishment.
Overnight business trip and needed a bed for the night. Rate was too good to pass up and the motel had everything you needed. On my own but ended up with a two bedroom apartment which was huge. Would be great for families with loads of room and all the amenities required for an overnight or extended stay. Bed was excellent and only complaint would be a power point near the table would be handy for business travellers.
This was great value for money. Very modern and very large rooms. Spa bath and kitchenette. Room had a queen bed and a single. Free wi fi available. Would definitely stay again. Quiet location with convenience store nearby.
We arrived about 12pm on a Saturday and were greeted by a lovely receptionist who advised our room was ready for us to check in. We were in apartment 4 which contained a king bed and single in the main room and a separate room with two single beds. There was a small kitchen in the room with good sized fridge and a lovely bathroom with a huge double shower. The room has been renovated and was quite modern. The beds were extremely comfortable and each bed had an electric blanket for cooler nights. The apartment was spotlessly clean and there was extra blankets and pillows in the main cupboard. The hotel grounds were beautifully kept and there was a small playground located centrally which the kids enjoyed. Whilst the location is a 5 minute drive from the main town of Warnambool, there is a Coles and a few other shops about 2 minutes away. Overall we had a very enjoyable and comfortable stay, was great value for money and I would highly recommend to others.
The room and service was great, but a pool in the warmer seasons would be much more preferable. The rooms are quite a distance form the town centre which is advantageous for a quiet location but a disadvantage for those wanting to walk everywhere.
The room we were given was lovely and clean, the receptionist lovely and we were very happy with our stay here. The position is close to Coles and very easy to access. Gardens and surrounds were immaculately looked after. We would definitely stay here again and would be pleased to recommend.
This was an expensive stay for what we got, which was meant to be an 'apartment' but in fact was an end of terrace, ageing unit in a residential area, not near the sea. We arrived on Chinese New Year which meant every room, everywhere was taken and we were desperate. We paid for this over the phone from the tourist information office and I have to say I was disappointed on arrival. It's fairly ugly on the outside with limited facilities on site and next to a trunk road, incidentally your view!! However, the main bedroom was comfortable and we heard no noise from the road or next door neighbours. The children were comfortable and we ended up having a meal supplied from the local shop, conveniently just down the road. All in all it was a welcome bed for the night but greatly overpriced for its age, facilities and location.
We stopped on our way back from Adelaide to Melbourne prior to the Great Ocean Road. The hotel is situated to the north of Warrnambool and consists of chalet style rooms set in lovely garden surroundings. I am paranoid about traffic noise and Sue gave us a room at the back of the plot with covered parking and very quiet. There is a Coles down the road for essentials and so we were well set for the evening. A great place to break your road trip.
Very large, clean and spacious room with comfortable king size bed. Kitchen well stocked with everything possibly needed. Very big bathroom. Close to shopping centre. Located on main road but very quiet. Host was very obliging.
Motel looks average from exterior but open room door we saw the most inviting room we've ever stayed in. The rooms are modern with comfortable beds a large room which isnt cramped like most other motel rooms. Kitchen was fully equipped. Only downside was its a bit far from city centre. Warrnambool itself is a hidden gem with so much to do. The blue lake is simply stunning, and has many viewing areas. The tourist area, which is away from main city area, was great. A walk to the island from the movie "oddball" is a must. Overall our stay in this town was great and would love to stay again for longer
Stayed here for one night in cabin. These are very big rooms with everything you need. Have cooking facilities including electric frypan. Bed was king size and very comfotable. Shopping centre nearby but bit of a trip to town. Big bathroom. All nice and clean
We were away for a week during the Christmas holidays and finding pet friendly accommodation can be really difficult at times. As everyone who travels with their pets usually book in advance and most places are booked. I was fortunate to be able to find a pet friendly hotel that allowed me to have my dogs with me. So, it made the trip more enjoyable. The hotel had all our needs that we required. A comfortable bed, clean linen, and overall very clean and tidy. The dogs had a great time with us and being located near a supermarket was good too as we didn't have to travel far for groceries, or take out food. The CBD wasn't far away and neither was driving to the beach. I would definitely stay again.
We stopped at this hotel at Warrnambool on our way from Melbourne to Adelaide through the Great Ocean Road. We reached quite late to this hotel and it is not right in the middle of the town so got lost. But it is very kind of the hotel staff to wait for us till the time we reached the hotel and checked in. it is a cosy hotel with standalone cottage type accommodation. very neat, quite, spacious and relatively cheap
A nice motel area with the rooms spread over several parts of the area. Our room was very nice inside allowing plenty of room to spread out. It was located just a short drive from the main street and just 500 metres away a shopping centre.
My partner and i stayed here for a very reasonable rate and we were pleasantly surprised at how good and clean the room was. The receptionist was lovely and the room more than adequate. Bed very comfy and bathroom clean. We shall return.
I stayed at the Colonial Village Motel and have recommended this motel to many of my friends. The rooms are very spacious. The staff is very welcoming and friendly. I will definitely stay there again.
We stayed at this motel, after being let down by others in the area. As we needed a disability access room for my elderly father. What a surprise, the room was perfect, large enough for a wheelchair, the bathroom was excellent, able to push the wheelchair in and there was even a shower seat. My room was next door and that was fantastic, spa, large bathroom and even an electric frying pan, and the beds were so comfortable. Would suggest this motel to anyone with mobility issues. Sue and Cherly were lovely to deal with, nothing was a problem. Sonia
This was a lovely place to stay. The rooms are very spacious and the bathroom is enormous! Suite came with a spa bath, microwave and even an electric fry pan for cooking. Overall the room was nice and bright, and parking was very easy right outside the door. There is a Centro about 250m down the road as well as a shopping strip so plenty of food options and supplies. A short walk down the road (away from the city) there is a lot of green space and a walking path which is lovely for a bit of fresh air :)
So glad we were out the back.Whilst we paid for a standard room and didn't have one of the 'flasher' units facing the highway, it was much more peaceful out the back. Rather than one long strip the motel units were grouped in twos and threes, on quite a large property. We sat on our verandah, had a drink and was surprised how quiet it was. As it wasn't overly busy I didn't know if it is a courtesy thing but the occupants were spaced out amoungst the buildings so we enjoyed a little distance from our neighbours. Rooms updated and modern. although it isn't in the middle of town, was quite near shops and supermarkets, which suited us just fine.
Stayed in newly renovated "duplex" unit. Clean, tastefully modern decor could be described as almost luxurious. Weather was mixed so we appreciated the adjacent covered carport which would be a real bonus in the summer. Located a few minutes north of the business area it's a perfect compromise between accessibility and "peace and quiet".
My husband and I stayed here over the Melbourne Cup weekend and it was above and beyond our expectations. Very clean, bed was very comfortable and location was great too - a short drive to the centre of town and quiet. Will definitely stay here again when we are next in the area.
What a surprise this Motel was, we arrived to two wonderful ladies in reception who were so very friendly and happy to help with any request. After being directed to our unit, we were pleasantly surprised, a large unit, with two bedrooms, large bathroom, a huge master bed, and plenty of extra room. Just a short drive into the centre of town. Great place to stay.
Stayed in a 2 bedroom family unit (used and charged as a 1 bedroom). Very comfy and well appointed. Older style but exceptionally neat and clean. Very friendly lady on Reception. Great location, walk to local shops and a short drive to major shopping plaza and CBD. Highly recommend.
Clean spacious apartments I found it excellent value for money very comfortable bed reception staff was extremely friendly and helpful to will definitely be back for another stay. Central to everything in the area as in restaurants and shops and not too far from the beaches as well. And I definitely recommend Bohemia cafe for breakfast
This motel is a great place to stay a large spacious room with two arm chairs and king bed, nice hot shower well appointed kitchen, room service breakfast was very generous, complementary vouchers for a restaurant and other attractions in Warrnambool, very quiet at night good for sleeping, and our host who was filling in for Sue & Tony while away on holidays I think he did a great job. I will stay here again when in Warrnambool, a great motel at a moderate room price.
This complex was a great place to stay and I would recommend to others. I stayed at a cottage style unit at the back of the very large complex. There were several of these buildings with 1, 2 or 3 units per building, with adjacent undercover carport parking. They were very spacious, very clean and comfortable. There was a mini kitchen, microwave etc, good sized TV with some satellite channels , Air Con and all the regular amenities. FREE Wifi, very friendly staff, breakfast room service and local restaurant charge back facilities. Walking distance to local shopping centre with Coles etc, - the CBD would be a driving trip of approx 3-5 minutes away. Large open grassed spaces within property for kids to play. tennis court, laundry room, drinks and snacks available from reception, low but sufficient water pressure in shower (may have been my time of shower), front verandah to each unit building, - and the space was great - not confined in like other motels to create a really relaxing atmosphere. This property has been my favourite in Warrnambool so far in numerous visits.
This is the second time my wife and I have stayed at the Colonial Village Motel. We loved the first time and the second time was even better, in fact we enjoyed ourselves so much we have already booked a room for a week in July next year. The unit we stayed in was very spacious and spotlessly clean. The TV, R/C air conditioning and shower worked very well and the bed was very comfortable. The Motel is located within easy driving distance to the city and there are certainly plenty of places to eat at. The host (Garry who replaced Sue while she was overseas on holidays, did Sue proud). He is very friendly and co operative he went out of his way to be helpful. Do yourselves a favour if you are looking for great accommodation, give this Motel a go, you will not be disappointed
This was a knee jerk booking in response to a fantastic deal offered. Originally we had just booked at Seafarers Lodge in Apollo Bay for 3 nights however when I saw this offer I thought why not extend our stay and use BW Colonial Village simply as a base."Obviously" for the price it must be pretty average. TOTALLY WRONG. From the moment we arrived ( 2 Hours early) we have received the best service that I have experienced ever, including resorts, private accommodation, Mantra, Sheridan .... the list goes on. The huge plus was Garry.Apparently Garry is a stand in manager whilst the regular managers are away. Well done with your choice Sue - this review is 99% because of the fabulous service and friendliness of Garry (and Maria) Spotless rooms, huge breakfasts - yummo -quiet location even though it's on the main drag, BBQ, restaurants delivering for only $5 delivery, plenty of stuff to do only minutes away. I had never thought of staying in Warrnambool before. As I said only an afterthought after booking Apollo Bay, however Colonial Village Motel has made me a convert. Only hope Apollo Bay can live up to the wonderful time we have enjoyed at this budget priced gem.Sensational apart from no big coffee mugs and tall glasses which Garry produced immediately on request. Thank you
