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

Welcomed by a very friendly receptionist, Jane I believe, and checked in with out any problems. Jane also checked out the local golf club for me and organised a discounted game, excellent golf course to. The motel unit was quite large and well furnished. Also contained a significant amount of information about Gundagai and the history of Gundagai. Big bathroom... More

We stayed in a lovely quiet downstairs room that was large ,with a very comfortable bed at a very reasonable rate. Reception staff were very pleasant and helpful. We also ate at the restaurant. The meals were lovely but be warned - generous serves!!! Couldn't eat it all. All in all very good value. We would not hesitate to recommend... More

Our group was impressed with the standard of our rooms, given the very competitive rates the motel offers. Decided to eat in house as well, and many thanks to the chef who recommended we change our selection as our first choice was a roast that she advised had been cooked the night before. We went with her suggestion for a... More

Ground floor rooms a good size and apart from movement on balcony and wooden stairs, no excessive noise from units above. Would probably take 1st floor unit if visited again and save $30! Room was clean, equipped OK, good size bathroom (we had spa bath with shower over it). We were there in summer and while aircon was effective, terribly... More

An excellent very reasonably priced option for a stopover between Sydney and Melbourne. Compared to other motels in Gundagai, Yass or Holbrook, Poet's Recall is excellent value. A double room with a cot for the baby was at least 25% cheaper than motels of the same standard either here in Gundagai or in the other towns I mentioned. I would... More
