Thank you leannemiller2016 for your review and we love happy guests that keep on coming back. We are now about to embark on phase 2 of the motel renovations and will commence the next series of rooms shortly which is exciting to be able to offer more rooms at a higher rating.

Suburban motel located next to a pub. This is a story of ups and downs! The motel building itself is average, with dull old corridors but the rooms are surprisingly well appointed and wouldn't look out of place in a 4 star hotel. The bathrooms need to be updated to match the room quality. The pub next door, that can be accessed through the motel, is fairly standard fair but the food was really good, but quite expensive given the surroundings. Breakfast buffet was fine, didn't have the cooked option but there seemed to be a decent choice.

Thanks PaulandRachel1 for your review and really appreciate the detail of your description. What will certainly please you is that we will soon be moving on to the next phase of our renovation plan that will see many more of the bathrooms renovated. We have worked hard over the past years to pick up the standard of the motel and as you indicated we are moving in the right direction. Thank you for the feedback and look forward to seeing you again soon.

There are not many hotels in this area, so the Dingley is the best in the region.
Rooms I had on 2 stays were just OK.
Best thing about the rooms are the size - they are huge!
However, the first one had a TERRIBLE bathroom - the benchtop was broken and massively swollen from water, the bathtub was stained, the toilet was stained, the walls and ceiling looked like they needed a lot of cleaning. However, I think that most of this was due to the age - in my estimation there had been no maintenance since the 1980's.
The second room I stayed in was slightly better - the benchtop in the bathroom was at least in one piece and not swollen. The stains were slightly less noticeable in bath tub and toilet.
Apparently you can get rooms (for an extra price) that have renovated bathrooms.
Beds were OK, however the bed in my first room (king size bed) was a little uncomfortable, as I could feel the gap between the twin bases underneath the mattress.
Pillows were good.
Shower head was disappointing. Shower curtain was hard to deal with when showering. No exhaust fan in the bathroom.
Heating/cooling in one of the rooms didn't work as expected.
The Bar/Lounge area is nice - good to relax here, however the drinks are a high price. There is a convenient bottle shop at the beginning of the driveway to the hotel - this was good.
The restaurant was below average - I had dinner there probably 7 times during my stay, and only 2 of the meals were OK.
Overall, I will probably stay there again, but not really by choice - more for the fact that there is almost nothing else in this area.

Room Tip: Spend the extra money to get a room with a renovated bathroom.

Thanks for your review Deefa1965 and unfortunately not all aspects of the hotel met your standards. As you mention many of the rooms are yet to be refurbished but we are continuing with our renovation program and continue this until all rooms are complete. I will update the hotel with your thoughts about the meals and drinks as all feedback is treated with respect and we are always aiming to improve. We look forward to you coming back soon.

We stayed here for 2 nights while in Melbourne. The room was much bigger than I was expecting. The room was great, the staff were friendly and the rate was very reasonable. We had breakfast both mornings in the breakfast room. The menu is pretty limited and a bit overpriced but the food quality was amazing. I would definitely stay here again

The price is quite reasonable but the rooms do show their age, especially the bathroom.

On the positive side the rooms are quite spacious with a decent amount of space to move about.

For the price per night around $100 it's not a bad deal.

One thing that annoyed me slightly was that there was no cooking facilities in the room, not even a microwave. I always feel that for "motel" so far from the CBD some cooking facility should be provided. The name "motel" also should imply that it includes at least some basic cooking facilities, as opposed to a "hotel".
