This is the 4th yr we have stayed at the Paddlewheel and I cannot rate it highly enough. The hosts are absolutley committed to making your stay an enjoyable one and the hotel is prettly central. The rooms are clean and inviting and very comfortable to stay in. We stayed 5 nights this time and did not want to leave.... More

Nice motel and no problem with loud a/c or mattress as others have mentioned. The location was good and not noisey even though on the main street. The staff was very nice. We were there during Blues Festival and the motel was fully booked and still managed to get a parking space but parking area is poorly designed and takes... More

I booked myself, partner and others in the motel for 2 nights, based on price and convenience. It was good other than our room (20) the shower; it was impossible to juggle the hot water to a constant stream, probably because it was at the end of the block. Convenience? It is close to the Business Center but it is... More

Checked in for the long weekend (queen' birthday) in a standard double room (room 12) Room layout ok with the usual TV, kettle, microwave, toaster and iron. Room was clean but the carpet near the door frayed. Bed and pillows too hard, hardly any sleep as bed was lumpy. The window AC very noisy and leaked water outside. Also had... More

In response to your review I would like to advise that the mattress in room 12 is less than 12 months old and that most commercial mattresses are firm. There are two spare pillows in the cupboard and if none of the 4 provided are to your liking we would have been happy to source others from the store room.... More

Because it was Anzac weekend I booked our room a few weeks in advance. I asked the man the cost for two nights in a standard room including the discount for a Golden Chain Member. He gave me a figure and I booked the room. I always book a standard room because all we do is sleep in it. On... More

Our records show that it was myself who took your booking and all our standard downstairs rooms were booked for a wedding party which had been booked in months prior. Because you wanted a downstairs room the only option we had available was on the superior side of our motel. The other Golden Chain motel in Echuca has a male... More

We, two adults/two teenagers, recently visited Echuca and stayed one night at the Paddlewheel Motel. We found our 2 room unit to be very clean, tidy and very well presented. Thank you. The hosts were very friendly, and understanding. As, we are from a very quiet rural area and did find the traffic passing the motel to be an issue... More

Whilst this is not the most modern hotel, it is clean and friendly. Check in/out was quick and seemless. Nothing was too much trouble. Stayed on the March long weekend and the place was full, but apart from a few loud voices it wasn't noticeable. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

This motel was clean, comfortable and very good value. It is well situated for a stroll to the main attractions of Echuca, and there were plenty of places to eat nearby. Just across the road was lovely 1930s "odeon" style cinema and there was large supermarket just around the corner. We had a very pleasant four night stay.
