Located in the township of Nhill, Zero Inn Motel serves as a great pit stop accommodation for travellers heading to Adelaide from Melbourne or vice versa. It has a range of motel rooms including single, double, twin and family. We booked a double room a few weeks ago and were very pleased with the accommodation.
Clean and comfortable, our room had everything we needed for an overnight stay. The air-conditioning worked well in the middle of summer and the television kept us up-to-date with all the latest COVID-19 news. At dinner time, the kettle provided me with sufficient boiling water to soak my bowl of couscous. Free parking was also available right in front of our room which made life rather easy. And, of course, not to mention the friendly service we received when checking-in.
For those interested in golf, the Nhill Golf Club is just a short drive from the motel. You could also walk down the road to the Australian Pinball Museum and play machines from various eras. Walking the other direction will get you to Nhill Lake and Nhill Swamp Boardwalk as well as the town centre. The townships of Goroke and Kaniva aren't far away either if you'd like to see two of the artworks along the state's silo art trail.
Now that the Victoria/South Australia border is open, road trips can once again be back on the agenda and Zero Inn Motel offers good value-for-money accommodation approximately 390 kilometres northwest of Melbourne and 360 kilometres southeast of Adelaide. I will definitely be returning in the near future.
