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

Accommodation was very good, showers were hot and water was in plentiful supply. Customer Service was exceptional and very friendly. Great spot to choose as a stopover between Melbourne and Sydney. Will definately stay again.

We stayed on our way from melbourne to sydney. The price was reasonable, and room was standard, but it was a rather old place. On the positive side this added character and service was very friendly. But the room and pool was only standard. Overall Nice place to stay for a night, but do not expect too much luxury :-)

Its been a very long while since we stopped in Gundagai. But the conditions had us arriving in the dark with our Travel guide open. We were looking only for a stop en route to Sydney that allowed us to walk in comfortable conditions to a good meal. About three places fitted this bill, but we opted for Poets Recall.... More

We chose Poet's Recall based on Trip Advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. The menu was gourmet by country standards - I had trouble deciding between the tempura prawns, salt & pepper squid or pumpkin & goats cheese roulade - and the food quality very good. Their hot chips are excellent too. I love my wine and am a... More

It was suggested we visit the Poets Recall for our evening meal whilst staying in Gundagai overnight and we are very glad that we did! The meal was excellent, the best tempura prawns and vegetables and totally unexpected given the size of this lovely little town. The spaghetti marinara was also very good and extremely generous in size. The deserts... More
