Basic Room with queen bed. Fairly well appointed - clean, good size small fridge, coffee, tea, toaster so can have breakfast in your room if taking cereal, bread and butter. Close to freeway, MacD and Hungry Jacks. RSL in town provides good meals.

Exactly 1/2 way between Sydney and our farm in Victoria - near Seymour. Yash and his team make it always feel like home. Many thanks - and from our Labrador named Missy too. Thoroughly recommend to pet owners

Travelling to Sydney with our 15 year old dog we decided to break up the drive with an overnight stop at Gundagai, now don't be put off, this is an older style motel but the rooms were clean and more than adequate for our needs, as a bonus our dog was allowed to sleep in the room, the staff were...

We have stayed here several times en route out of Melbourne. Always friendly, no fuss, clean and tidy, quiet, air conditioned accommodation, great shower. Best place to stop with dogs overnight, on a budget.

We stayed here to break the journey from Sydney to Melbourne when travelling with our dog. Next time we will choose somewhere else and have him sleep in the car. The room it's self was clean enough and there was tea and coffee, the positives end there. The bathroom smelt like a blocked drain, the room was extremely stuff, the... More

I spent one night here on a recent road trip. The surrounding countryside is magnificent, but this property is not really designed for tourists; more for workers. My room door was difficult to open & the owner was aware of this. I had a double room with ensuite & theoretically tea & coffee making facilities, including a fridge & microwave... More

Our family of 5 and one small dog stayed in room 3. The room was very small and had a double bed, single bed and bunk. It was clean enough but quite tired. It was very noisy with truck noise, the owners dogs yapping in the garden next to us and the plastic on the mattress on the bunk made... More

This set the tone of our night in Gundagai. Travelling with Rhonan we have stayed blue stone cottages at the base of the Grampians to really interesting B and Bs. Generally in pet friendly motels that aren't necessarily flash but clean with good beds. Last night was the exception. Yes we were down the back off the main road but... More
