Time Out says

A strong contender for best Australian motel and often cited as a must-see, Kyneton Springs Motel boasts a funky exterior and a nostalgic, boutique feel. You’ll have a good idea of what you’re in for as soon as you pull up to the custom retro-look signage out front. Each room is uniquely curated to fit the aesthetic brief (think groovy patterns, luxe finishes and kitsch wall art) and even if you haven’t posted on Insta since your last birthday, you’ll find it hard to resist snapping a few pics.

Kyneton Springs was taken under the wing of former restaurateur Catherine Foote in 2014, so safe to say that excellent food and drink is a major focus. Throw back a classic cocktail at in-house bar the Patio (Pink Elephant, anyone?) or have your brekky delivered directly to your room via your very own breakfast hatch. It doesn’t get better than that.

Tucked just off the Calder Highway, the motel is a great pit stop on your road trip to the glorious Macedon Ranges. You’ll also find a variety of walks (gentle or adventurous, depending on your appetite), vintage shopping and cellar door experiences in Kyneton town itself.
