“Very good for the price! Clean and great value :)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

We are returning home from Albury and have stayed over night to try this budget hotel. What a pleasure! Nice clean rooms, great hot showers and a comfy bed... Everything a weary traveller needs! A bonus was the continental breakfast of cereal and toast - and a generous serve as well! This was inlcuded in the price of $89 for a queen room. There is a good TV, wi fi is available (we didnt use it, have our own). The decore is dated but the value for money well and truly wins hands down. Congrats to the operator, we will be back :) .. We dined at the local RSL club and had a top notch Chicken Kiev also great value for money. Thanks Swan Hill! Cheers from Chris and RJ

We decided to just head off on a road-trip and see where we ended up. We crossed from one side of the state to the other and ended up in Swan Hill. Looked up wotif and found this motel very reasonably priced, and as we were just down the road we decided to just call in and check it out. The owner greeted us warmly, we asked about a double and he offered to upgrade us to a queen room for no extra cost. We were shown the room on offer and it had everything we needed so we got settled in straight away.

Although a complimentary breakfast in the dining room was included in the price, we decided to have a little sleep-in instead, then grab a late breaky at a cafe in town.

Overall a very well run motel, has everything you need at an exceptionally affordable price, and the host was warm, friendly and really made us feel welcome. If we're ever in the area again we would stay here for sure.

The picture is somewhat misleading as the "resort" is not on the river or any other major waterfront. It is not even in town but is a very pleasant, spotlessly clean retro experience run by very eager to please people. Highly recommended.

I spent 2 nights here recently with my 2 children. I was upgraded right away as they had an influx of electrical workers arrive and thought I would prefer the 2 bedroom apartment. It consisted of 2 bedrooms, lounge room with big sofa and 2 other seats, dining table and small kitchen, bathroom. The kids bedroom had 2 bunks and a queen bed. There was a large flat screen tv, microwave, toaster, kettle, crockery etc. Very well equipped.

Although this is an older style motel, it was kept spotlessly clean and we felt very comfortable there. The pool was clean and warm and the complimentary breakfast consisted of cereals, toast, spreads, fruit, tea, coffee and juice. The owner was extremely helpful and friendly in every way and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. It is only a few minutes drive from town so quite convenient.

You are right Robbie, the photo next to our name is inappropiate. Tripadvisor placed this picture against our name when the first review was displayed and I cannot get Tripadvisor to remove it, My requests to do this fall on deaf ears and blind eyes. Thak you for your encouraging review..

We arrived late on Friday night and parked right before our room. The key was in the door, so the fastest check-in ever.
Room are very clean, a bit Art Deco Miami style. Nothing fancy, but more than we expected from a motel. Rooms have large flat screens and a fridge. Beds were perfect.

In the morning we had breakfast in the coloured breakfast room. Good continental breakfast and a news paper.

Very happy with this motel.
