      The Lamplighter Motel was so clean! Very lovely staff and very affordable! I was so impressed with how clean it was.

      As a tourist, it was a bit dicky to find the train station. Thats it.

    • Family with children
      7.8

      We liked the friendly and homey atmopshere created by the staff. The lady was very welcoming. She had a 'can do' attitude even with no visible assistance.

      Car park availability.

      Stayed in 1st week June 2011. Over-rated 3.5 stars. The picture shown was different from what we got. We were asked to pay 20$ extra if we want the room seen on website. Advertised as come down from 138 to 100 because it is off-peak but the room is no more than caravan park ones. It smells, no toilet rolls (provided 2 folded sheets like some public toilets) the old crt tv remote batties was taped with no back cover and sometimes does not work. Door light does not work at all to see the keyhole and did not get fixed when informed. We have stayed other 3.5 stars far better than this one. We wished we stay at a hotel 500 meters away for 4.5 stars, 125$ with restaurants swimming pool, sauna, and works!

      it was close to where i needed to be. The staff were very nice and willing to assist with anything we needed

    • Older travelers

      Convenient to the locations we wanted to visit

      The entry to the rooms. It would be difficult for those with wheelchairs and walkers. The trees blocked safe entry and when raining would drip over people and belongings.

    • Group of friends

      Being able to share a spacious accomodation with other families for our basketball weekend.

      The appartment was not very clean.

    • Single
      9.6

      The signage for the Motel did not stand enough when I was trying to find the Motel. I drove straight past the Motel when looking for it.

    • Group of friends
      8.2

      Very close to the metropoliton golf course, was easy to get too.

    • Family with children
      7.0

      With lots of bedrooms, there was ample room in our two apartments for our two families consisting of ten people including six children.

      Picking up keys at a different location involving heavy traffic was a problem for a first time guest.

    • Single
      4.4

      The staff were all friendly, and tried to be helpful. That is all.

      I was unhappy that the restaurant had no chef. The receptionist who was extremely busy anyway had to run to and from the kitchen and reception to cook for everyone, subsequently I paid restaurant price for a very sub standard meal, the breakfasts were no better. Also the advertised direct dial number to my room was not correct, in fact there was no direct dial, even though the page in the room stated there was, the same page told me about the wireless internet available for your comfort in your room, but it would only work in reception. It would be a good idea for Booked.net to remove this motel from their list to preserve their good reputation.

    • Older travelers
      3.2

      Nothing, it was old, shabby, very poor renovation, all work done on the cheap, terrible road noice, the units were under contruction while our stay, should have been much cheaper than we paid. The worse place we have ever stayed during our travels over the years.

    • Group of friends
      9.2

      it was clean and spacious and comfortable and well equiped

      small tv

    • Family with children
      8.2

      The location of the hotel was great, easy access to the city via the freeway and very close to Chadstone shopping centre. The service was prompt and friendly.

    • Family with children
      5.8

      Homely and cozy environment

      No one came to clean the apartment instead we have to request for the services/facilities.

    • Family with children
      7.8

      Service was great. Really nice to deal with.

      Noise from people in Car Park late at night, need to have laundry facilities upgraded.
