“A one nighter”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

This hotel is ok good for a one night stay. We received a breakfast voucher of $15 with our booking and considering a cooked breakfast of bacon and eggs was only $10.50 this was good value and you got a decent sized meal. There's plenty of DVDs to choose from and on the house and a very friendly puss called Emily.Only down side for us was it was very noisy between the young ones who were drinking and getting louder by the minute by the pool but did finish up at 11pm and you could hear doors banging and cars pulling up all hours of the night and this is no reflection on the motel for its service just that it was very busy and some people don't consider what hour of the night it is and that others might be trying to sleep.

Thank you for your review :) Australia Day weekend is always a busy weekend. The age group of guests vary from year to year. This year there were quite a few young ones who were indeed having a ball in the pool and spa. On these occasions, we like to have things wound up by 11 pm. Guests are usually more than happy to call it a night.

The hosts are friendly and accommodating, the rooms are clean and comfortable but quite small. We stayed one night and for a short stay this motel was adequate. It also has the advantage of being located close to town.

Us couple of guys stayed here at the Advance on Sunday evening 15th December on our way to Melbourne. Easy to find, friendly welcoming couple, inexpensive, clean, comfortable, good bedding, good shower and quiet, what more could one want after a long drive from Sydney? The references to the local eateries was helpful as well. A much needed walk into the town centre was only 10 minutes. Would stay here again.

I wouldnt hesitate to book this motel again ... great levy bank tracks into town ...loved the salt water pool and heated spa and the water toys provided for the kids along with other lawn games to play. Really super comfy beds - even the sofa lounges were comfortable - stayed for 5 days. Sparkalarkle clean room. So nice to be somewhere the 'fur babies' were welcome! The owner/managers Tiffany and Mike genuinely great managers. Love Wangaratta!

We have stayed at this motel a few times over the years. We stayed here this time while visiting Beechworth for "Opera in the Alps". The Advance motel is clean, comfortable and quiet. Michael and Tiffany are great hosts.

We are on an extended holiday in Australia and this is probably our 10th motel and by far the best. Lovely setting, good pool and gardens, sparklingly clean rooms which are more modern than most, well equipped, excellent air con (we were there with temps of 44 outside) The owners were on a break themselves so we were taken very good care of by Michael & Jackie, who couldn't have been more helpful or friendly, nothing was too much trouble for them.
Reception has cold drinks & ice creams plus an extensive DVD library which we made use of as we were avoiding the heat in the late afternoon. Wifi is free and is decent speed.
My only niggle is that as the motel is "dog friendly" the dog owners can be rather selfish, I was put off using the pool as dogs are allowed inside the fenced area, one dog did it's business and the dog's owner ignored it. On our last day, high temperatures I know, there was a dog taking a dip in the pool.
Apart from that I rate this motel as exceptional.

As a disabled person find a good room that I can function is very difficult. The disabled room at the Advance Motel is brilliant. Plenty of room, Top mobility aids and a very helpful manager.
Such a lovely change. Very reasonable tarriff as well .
