  • 2.0.Poor

    I booked through wotif and unfortunately the state of Victoria went into lockdown so i was unable to go. I called wotif and spoke to laksham and requested a refund and explained the situation. He stated he would escalate the matter and i should get a result in 24 to 48 hours. I called the Whalers Rest Inn Motel and they told me that wotif dont pay them until 3 days after my payment. It has been close to a week and i have had no response and no refund either. Wotif has been very unhelpful and i STRONGLY SUGGEST EVERYONE NOT TO BOOK ANYTHING WITH WOTIF. THEY BASICALLY JUST STOLE MY MONEY!! Once again Do not book through wotif!!! Better to just burn the money rather than book with wotif. Never again. Worst experience ever!

    Photos much better than room

    The photos looked great and very reasonably priced, so we booked here. What we found, however, was a poorly cleaned basic room.

    The motel was conveniently located for us slightly on the Melbourne side of the town to enable easy to where we needed to travel. The Motel is in need of a good overhaul to bring it up to a good standard
