    "Geraldine experience"

    Disappointing.Although clean and comfortable the dreary ,dark ambience of this room was not inviting . The musty smell as you went up the stairs was off putting . I can only hope that this particular room is destined for a complete update . The other newer rooms looked ok .

    The view of the countryside was in fact the houses across the street .

    Very friendly people, room was a good size, clean and well presented. Motels are very close to town, cafe's, pubs etc. Absolutely enjoyed our stay. Also having a veranda out front to part our bike under or back a car under to load up if raining (which it wasn't) is a bonus.

    "good value, friendly & helpful"

    The room was well-appointed, and spotlessly clean. Very exposed to the afternoon sun so the room got quite hot, but a fan was helpfully provided, which did the job of making the room perfectly comfortable. Impressed to find a coffee plunger plus a small bag of coffee grounds. The owners provided helpful info on local attractions and services. Overall this was good value accommodation and a pleasant experience.

    "Not worth the money"

    The rooms are very outdated and the walls to the neighbours very very thin. We could hear each word they have spoken. Our room was giving to the main road and here also, you could hear very loud each car passing in spite of the closed windows. Nothing for people with light sleep or sensitive to noise.

    Good things: comfy bed with heating blanket, close to village centre.

    We were up quiet early in the morning and the manager was there to greet us and make sure we had a pleasant stay

    "Great stay in an upgraded unit"

    We had originally booked a smaller unit at this motel but, on inspection the week before our stay, it appeared to be rather noisy being very close to a main road. So we decided to pay 50% extra for an upgrade to a quiet, fully renovated unit, enjoying two nights in what might better be described as a luxury serviced apartment - leather furniture, dishwasher, double glazing ensuring good soundproofing, etc.

    Service from the friendly and helpful owner was great with gear to wash our muddy car; suggestions, guides and maps for local visits (include Peel Forest if you like bush walks); free WiFi, refills of plunger coffee, etc. A park-sized garden area out the back would be great for families to enjoy. We would certainly stay here again in one of the renovated units.

    We are very sorry that you were not happy As you were here two nights it would have been nice if you had come and seen us with this problem and we could have changed you to a more modern unit with double glazing and sound proofing. It is very difficult to address this sort of problem if you do not communicate with us at the time.

    "Economical &comfortable"

    Motels are conveniently located close to town (short walk) & are quite old however were adequate for our 1 night stay & were spotlessly clean. We had an upstairs unit (no 3) which was very sunny & had a little balcony for which the door did not lock but we figured we would be pretty safe in Geraldine! The pleasant friendly owner explained that one ring on the 2 ring cooker operated back to front i.e highest heat was 1 not 6. Smoke detector was very sensitive & was activated by the toaster! There is no phone in the unit so if you needed to contact the office it meant a trip downstairs. A problem with the TV was quickly sorted with a replacement which we appreciated. The bed was very comfortable as were the easy chairs which was also a plus.This was a good economical motel for our brief stay

    If you make a review please get it right. You were not offered an upstairs studio, you booked the upstairs studio on line, and you were offered a downstairs studio if the stairs were a problem, it was your choice to take the downstairs studio, and am at a loss to know what decor is dated. The duvet is less than 12 months old and the complete unit is less than 8 years old . You say it is a bit overpriced for the region, If you are not happy with the price you didn't have to book.

    "Good accommodation"

    Enjoyed our stay in lovely retro unit. Very clean at good price. Close to roadway so some intermittent heavy-traffic noise. Friendly and efficient service. Would stay there again.

    We arrived tired after a long day on the road bikes. The friendly help we received upon arrival was TOPS. Great information offered about eating out. When we come this way again we will be staying. Thank you Ross & Sharon. ( Hope Ross your shoulder is on the mend)

    "A handy motel gem in Geraldine"

    The Geraldine Motels proved a good choice for us. The manageress was very helpful and friendly, offered us the choice of 3 available rooms, and the room itself that we selected was spacious, well equipped and comfortable, as well as being reasonably priced. She gave us several valuable ideas for exploring the town, which made our visit even better than we expected.

    Despite being within easy walking distance of the town centre (and the nearby river bank walk that is being constructed) it is in a quiet spot.

    We would happily stay there again, and found Geraldine itself a pleasant and interesting place to visit, as we did 2 years ago.

    I stayed in one of the "older units" but it was fine - impeccably clean, two single beds, no complaints.

    Friendly front desk staff, got in and out with no hassles.

    "Great place to stay. 10 out of 10!"

    This is a clean, modern and very spacious motel. Ideal for families where that bit of extra space allows for indoor time to be so much easier. Easy to find being on the main road but also extremely quiet. The owner was very pleasant and helpful. Would definitely stay again if we were staying in Geraldine.

    "Great place to stay"

    We are a family of 6 and stayed two nights in Geraldine Motels. We had a two bedroom unit which was a good size for our group. The upstairs room was quite large. The unit was clean, quiet and comfortable and warm. The kitchenette was small however we didn't cook so it was fine for us, and would be adequate to prepare simple meals. The motel is very conveniently located within a short walk to the shopping area, cafe's, cinema, etc. The owners were very helpful with providing information about eating options and things to do.

    "Good Value"

    We stayed for two nights during a very cold spell in Geraldine. Found the studio unit very clean and although not a very big unit totally suitable for a couple for a short stay.

    One of the older units but very well maintained. Perhaps an additional heater in the kitchenette would be useful for those who do not travel with their own.

    Great to have electric blanket on a very comfortable bed. Owner very cheerful and helpful.

    "Geraldine Motel - Pleasant enjoyable stay"

    Stayed at Unit 10 which is the 2 bedroom unit. Unit was nice and clean. Would recommend for families with kids. The only negative side is that this is a 2 storey unit with only 1 toilet+bath on the ground level...thus a bit inconvenient. Apart from that this place is great! Proprietors of this motel were very friendly and helpful.

    "Friendly, Clean and Comfortable"

    Sharon and Ross are wonderfully friendly and great hosts. The untis are always beautifully clean and comfortable. They are a home away from home for me as I have to travel to geraldine often (for family reasons). The motel is sited on Geraldine's main street but the units themselves are quiet. Really handy for a casual wander into the village and very handy to the movie theatre.

    Always a great stay!!

    Very comfortable stay. The owners were very helpful and were very kind to lend my 3 year old some toys during our stay.

    They also allowed us to have a later check out at no extra cost which was very generous. The accommodation was spacious, modern and very clean. Well recommended.

    "A pleasant surprize awaits you"

    We enjoyed our experience in Geraldine. The room we stayed in was nice and it was very spacious. The hosts were friendly and helpful. We walked from the motel to the ancient Talbot Forest and walked all the trails - a very enjoyable experience. The TASTE restaurant that we had planned to go to was unfortunately closed that evening (due to a fault with the oven). However, there were other places to eat that were also suitable. All in all, an enjoyable stay - thanks.

    "Fantastic owners"

    We booked this motel based on a recommendation of the friendly owners, and the recommendation was spot on; they are great fun, really friendly, and helpful. On top of that, the motel was excellent with a really comfortable bed, and the room was spotless with a modern kitchenette and bathroom. There was a pretty garden leading down to a river. And it was just a short stroll into town; we loved it.
