The friendliest motel in Victoria.
Only staying one night we were treated like old friends. From the moment we walked into reception to the moment we handed back the room key, all staff were very welcoming and accommodating. I would not hesitate to recommend staying at the Black Bull motel to anyone I know. This is our place to stay next time we are in town. We have travelled all over the world and stayed in some great places. The value for money at Black Bull Motel is one of the best I have ever had. If you are undecided when looking at a motel in Traralgon, worry no more. This is the place.
