We booked 2 nights here for a little family get away. We chose this place as it was by far the cheapest and had mostly positive reviews here on Trip Advisor. We stayed in a motel room with a queen bed and 2 singles (we were 2 adults and a 7 & 2 year old). The room was clean and... More

The staff were friendly, rooms were very clean but the best part was that the kids had so much to do, jumping pillow, gym, giant chess set, a pool & of course finding Gary's friends... We WILL be back :)

Cottage was clean and well maintained with everything provided. Interaction with staff was very good and they responded extremely well to our needs. We have already passed on our recommendations to family and friends.

Hi John, Thank you very much for your kind words and you can't ask for better advertising than a personal referral so thank you for thinking of us. Have a great day and we look forward to seeing you and / or your family and friends soon. Kind Regards, Tammy More

Was able to book here last minute and get a room overnight, was a bit of a gamble as did not have alot of time to look for accommodation due to circumstance. Had the option of staying in a lodge (usually a two night min booking) or a motel room which was cheaper. As it was just an over nighter... More

Not a big fan of your typical motel terrace. Rooms tend to be dark and unwelcoming, and walls paper thin. Fortunately I had no guests either side, so a peaceful night was enjoyed. Loved the warm electric blanket on a cold night, And the shower head was one of those older types with strong pressure, marvellous. Unfortunately the wifi didn't... More

And as far as the wifi goes - I'm certainly hearing you and have... More

The reception was good. The grounds were well kept and looked really nice but the pet friendly really motel meant pet smell. The room smelt like dirty dog, the windows were open when I arrived so it didn't smell too bad.

Hi, I definitely agree - that's terrible. Can you pretty please contact me asap so I can do something about this. Our phone number is 07 4681 4121.

I would recommend Murray Gardens Cottages and Motel. The manger Tammy was warm and friendly. The surrounding gardens are lovely. We stayed in a motel room. It was clean. I was pleasantly surprised to see the room had a microwave and not just cups and saucer, It also had plates and bowls. So we could make breakfast if we wanted... More

It's not new, but it's very tidy and clean with good sized rooms and good value for money. It is a family run business and they are very friendly. It's not far from the city centre and a short drive to local wineries. I look forward to coming back again !

It's clean enough. Linens are clean. Quite big. There are a lots of ants. Staff is friendly. Sound proof is really bad as next door neighbour left at 4am and woke us up. Can get quite cold but there are electric blankets. Microwave is very handy in the room. Close to the town centre.

Hi, Thank you for taking the time to enter your feedback about Murray Gardens. I'm glad you were happy with the room's facilities and my apologies for the early riser next to you. My guess is that you were in one of the two rooms which interconnect. We are currently looking at noise proof/buffering options to place in between the... More

I chose to stay in one of the motel rooms in a block that was towards the back of the property and consequently quiet. The room had all the standard basic motel room facilities but was quite spacious and clean. The bathroom was cleaned each day!! The only draw-back was the distance from the CBD but because I had a...

Hi Judy, Thank you for taking the time to enter up your feedback here. While not being right in town can be a little inconvenient at times, we will still often choose to take the twenty minute walk along the creek to get there just for the enjoyment of the beautiful walk. I completely understand however, that sometimes you want... More
