Poets Recall Gundagai always seems to have a bed for us. When its late in the day you can turn up there and they'll squeeze you in. Nice clean comfy accomodation very friendly staff minutes walk from everything good off street parking. Thanks Poets Recall we'll be back.

The rooms are a bit dated and sad looking. The wifi advertised didnt work in the rooms, and reception knew it! But the rooms were clean, and still for the low rates it was not bad value for money. Friendly service as well.

Convenient location to break a long trip. Customer service that would out do many 5 star hotels. Clean and convenient. Great to be able to organise a very late check in in a rural area. Staff helpful and friendly.

This trip was disappointing, have stayed before and been very happy and have left a very positive review. The main reason for chosing ths motel on this trip was the excellent restaurant experience on my last stay, the room compendium stays there is no need to book and the restaurant is open till 8.00pm, well at 7.05 it was closed...

Wonderful place to overnight between Sydney and Melbourne. The room was spacious, linens were lovely and the hospitality was terrific. A very quiet, restful Motel. Staff was very pleasant and helpful. Will definitely stop again.

A great place for an overnight stop between Melbourne and Sydney. It has good rooms and great service with a restaurant attached for dinner and/or breakfast. I recommend a downstairs room for oldies especially if stairs a difficulty. The pool is wonderful after a long drive and very relaxing. It comes fully equipped with toaster and kettle etc and room...

I travel to Melbourne from Newcastle a couple of times every year and always stay here - on the way down and on the way back home. I have never had a bad experience here. I have forgotten how many times I have stayed here. It isn't a 5 star resort but it is a lovely little motel in the... More

Yes, the bed is comfy, the room is roomy and clean and yes I know it was Christmas Eve when we checked in... However, we did ask about dinner on Christmas Eve and Breakfast on Christmas Day when we booked prior to our holiday. We even requested menus (via email) for the express of being able to ring ahead to... More

This motel in Gundagai is ideal for a sleep halfway between Geelong and Sydney. The owners are very helpful and caring, the room was good with a larger than usual bathroom. The outdoor pool was very welcome on our arrival after a 7 hour journey. We were most welcomed by the staff member in the breakfast room in the morning... More

I stay at many motels and found this one to be one of the best. The room was large spacious well equipped and super clean. I had a great meal in the restaurant where I was made to feel welcome. While I waited for my meal I chatted to the couple at the next table who were also happy with... More
