Had not booked for Wodonga, and tried here on spec. We have been really impressed with most motels down under, and this was no exception. God sized room, decent facilities, free WiFi, microwave, helpful host. If in the area, worth a stop.

We stayed just the one night here. It is a typical motel - main road, single storey, drive up to the door kinda place! But the staff were friendly, the bed was comfortable, the air con was quiet and efficient (very important on a 35+ day) and there was even a well stocked mini bar. There's a tavern across the...

I would definately stay here again, it is in a quiet location and the owners are very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Also reasonably priced. There was a hotel across the road so we could just walk across for dinner.

OK, so that title may well be loaded... but it's not! We were told by friends who'd stayed there previously that the Border Gateway has a batting average well above its spot in the lineup and that is certainly the case. Our two-night stay was warm, comfortable and pretty much everything we look for in a motel. Reception was personable... More

Well located just off the motorway, it is an old style decor, but good efforts made with good fabric coverings, well presented and very clean. Owners friendly, rooms spacious and it all worked. Downside was the bathroom mirror on the side of the basin – harder to shave and the surrounding area not that interesting just light industrial and suburban... More

Found this place by sheer chance and couldn't have been happier. Very friendly and helpful owner. Comfortable room, with excellent bathroom, wi-fi, aircon, lots of space, what more can I say. Just perfect. The added bonus was the Edwards Tavern across the street, where the food was outstanding, with a great selection of beers and wines. Very happy to recommend... More

We have stayed at this motel a number of times travelling to Melbourne. Rooms are very clean and quite large. It is situated close to the Freeway to and from Melbourne so is very convenient. This motel has all that you would want including Air Con. Staff are very friendly so would have no problem recommending it.

The rooms are well sized and comfortable. The rooms are more homely than many other motels lacking the typical head board budget motel bed and tacky desk and dining table furniture commonly found. The bathrooms are quite modern and very large. The host are also more than accommodating, some of the best I've come across. Great value for the area.

This motel is on the Melbourne side of Wodonga; very near the freeway, but far enough away to be beautifully quiet. Clean and comfortable. Only 10 rooms in total and plenty of outdoor space. Cars can be parked with doors fully open - really handy when loading through the side doors as we do (plus the rear). Pub across the... More
