“Nice motel. clean and functional”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

Quite good and clean. Try and get an upstairs room. The noise in the ground floor rooms from those on the first floor can be annoying especially if they are early risers like I had. In house restaurant was reasonable but be adventitious and try tenders or one of the many other great restaurants in town. Positioned close to town but away from the passing traffic. Would stay here again

Room Tip: Get a first floor room

I stayed at the Burke and wills over the weekend and decided to splash out and book the Amiery House. I was not disappointed. This charming little 2 bedroom cottage is perfect for a family stay. One of the bedrooms has an ensuite. There is a full kitchen with everything you could need as well as a washer and dryer. It truly is like a home away from home. Will definitely be back

I stayed here overnight on a business trip to Swan Hill with a colleague.

Upon check-in, as we were pre-booked through our corporate travel agent, there were no forms to fill in, no credit card to provide, just friendly service!

My room was the end room on the upper level. The room was spacious and clean. There was a queen and a single bed and still lots of floor space!
The décor was perhaps a little dated, particularly in the bathroom, and I'm not a massive fan of shower curtains compared to screens or doors.

The weather was a little chilly while in Swan Hill, and while the air con unit can be used a a heater, its position meant this wasn't very effective - I question whether this might be the same for cooling too.

I ordered dinner using room service from the motel's restaurant, Charlie Gray's, and I'm pleased to report it was delicious!! I didn't have breakfast at the motel however, where the only option is room service and consists of normal motel fare by ticking the boxes regarding cereal, eggs, juice, yoghurt/fruit and hot drink, chargeable by each element.

Wifi is available, free, and unlimited. A code is required which reception can provide. This is a definite plus point when away for work (and leisure!).

The bed was very comfortable and the sheets smelt lovely and clean. An odd comment, perhaps, but it was something I really noticed!

I'll also mention that there is an outdoor swimming pool at the motel, but given our short time in Swan Hill and the chilly weather, we didn't use it!

Overall, very good impressions of this motel and I'd certainly recommend it as a good choice if you're in Swan Hill.

Our two night stay was very enjoyable and good value. We had a lovely spacious room, with a very comfortable bed. It was very clean and the staff exceptionally friendly and helpful. The hotel was close to everything in town and there are a lot of things to do in the area.

My partner was up in Swan Hill working for 3 days so we decided that I would come along for a little break with him. The room was nice. Clean. Bathroom clean. Parking good. Shower pressure isnt great. Nice pool area to sit and relax. Close to city centre so he could take car and I could walk to shops during the day. To be honest the only staff I seen during my visit here were the cleaning staff and they were really nice and helpful. Spent 3 days and nights and would recommend as a quiet convenient clean motel.

I recently stayed overnight the rooms were very nice with a spa and plenty of car parking although not out side your own room. There was a BBQ provided next to the well maintained swimming pool, this was appreciated as there were about 12 of us

Having looked at some of the alternatives we decided this was the best of a fairly ordinary bunch. The room was a decent size with a double bed and a single. Plenty of storage space. There was a small fridge and a kettle and toaster but no plates or cutlery. Wifi is free for an hour only, and you cannot sub divide that. The pool is small and there are only a few plastic tables and chairs. Two cheap and abused gas barbecues are available.

The room was clean and the bed and bedding of good quality. The shower was adequate but could do with more pressure, and a mixer tap would be better than the two separate taps which need some experimenting to get the water temperature right.

The owners and staff were all pleasant and helpful. Overall it was a pleasant enough stay.
