We only needed a brief overnight stay, arriving late (after 10) and leaving pretty early. We chose a cheap upstairs room seeing we would only be in for a little over 7 hours. As we arrived late our key was left in the 'breakfast chute thingy'. Room was smallish but very clean and for what we paid good value for... More

A quaint motel in an interesting town. We asked for a downstairs room and parked right outside which is always a bonus on a one night stopover. Our room was a little small with creaky floor boards and a little musty but was comfortable with all the things you need. The bathroom was large and although quite dated everything worked... More

This was one of the better run and presented hotel we've ever stayed. From the friendly staff to the fully refurbished, very contemporary and clean room set half way up the hill from centre of Gundagai. We chose to stay on the ground floor which cost a little more but the room was super comfortable and we slept easily. A... More

My 92 year old father and I stayed at this motel. We arrived at 9pm on a very cold night and Rowena, our hostess had arranged a downstairs room for us and had the heater and the lights on. We had an excellent cooked breakfast in the morning in the dining room. The room was clean, comfortable, with an easy... More

Fantastic.. Late check-in was easy. Rooms are clean and friendly staff. I think friends of the staff who were sitting near the breakfast room, helped us with the parking, Thank you. Will stay again with my family.

We stayed here for a family get-together. There were 25 adults. A great location, very clean and adequate accommodation. The chef created a fantastic dinner in the private function room, with private bar. The theme was 'Christmas in July'. All the decorating was done by the Hotel and what was best was they were very happy to do it. The... More

My husband and I stayed in a family room with our three sons. The room was clean and spacious. We arrived late and the staff had kindly heated the room, which was a nice touch. Overall a great stopover location and would definitely stay again.

I must confess that I didn't use TA to locate this motel, as I wasn't actually planning to stay in Gundagai on Anzac Day night. However, due to an altercation with certain public officials in the wee hours of the morning on the Hume Highway, I was forced to make an unscheduled stopover. Now before anyone starts jumping to conclusions... More

Poet's Recall is one the more reasonably priced motels on the Hume. We've stayed here before and probably will again but we'd opt for the slightly larger slightly more expensive downstairs rooms next time - if available. The upstairs room was tiny compared to downstairs. Having said that we did manage to squeeze in two porta-cots for the kids but... More
