We found this motel on the way from Adelaide to Yarrawonga. Stayed overnight. Such lovely, friendly people. Peter was always up for a bit of a chat and a laugh. Kath is a lovely, sweet lady. Both made us feel completely welcome, like we were coming to their home, which we are I guess because they live there. They have... More

Clean and comfortable, good size room. The thing that makes the experience of staying here head and shoulders above others are the owners, Peter and Kathy. The welcome and service here reminds me of the best B&B experiences I had in the UK. Friendly, helpful and peaceful. Have a pizza and drink the local wine in the comfort of your... More

Well what can we say!! On arrival we were greeted by the "host of the moistest" Peter. Our deluxe room overlooked the pool and had been recently refurnished. It was large and spotlessly clean. A real home away from home. We had a great cooked breakfast on our first morning. At night you can order a Pizza and as Peter... More

We stayed here for a night on our trip around Victoria. The room was clean and tidy. The room had free wifi which worked sometimes but not always. The owners were helpful and bed was quite comfortable. It appears that the motel has both standard rooms and deluxe rooms. We stayed in the standard room.

The Motel is almost 2km from the CBD, but eventually this doesn't matter as the CBD is a row of ugly (dollar-) shops and a few eating places that hardly deserve being listed as restaurants. Under such circumstances it turned out to be a lucky and happy coincidence that we had chosen the Murray River Motel as our "haven" during... More

On arrival we were upgraded to a deluxe room which was quiet, spacious and very clean. Walking distance to Spoons restaurant and the Pioneer Village. Our only disappointment was lack of wifi in our room. Free wifi was available to us at the office.

Golden Chain always punches above its weight and this is no exception. Not flash or "modern" but not tired or dated either. Comfy, friendly and better equipped than I'd expected. Kathy's weather forecasting needs work though!

When we arrived we were greeted by a very pleasant and helpful owner and his wife. We were offered an inspection of the rooms which we accepted. Both rooms were very clean and neat. The shower and toilet very clean. Breakfast delivered to our room the night before so we could rise at our own time.Very comfy bed and the... More
