“Best of Benalla”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012 via mobile

Avondale is not only the best value in Benalla but it is also in the middle of doin up rooms, which makes it seem so much nicer.

Tv with Austar and built in DVD player, microwave, fridge, toaster and kettle. Lovely!

Warm welcome, comfortable room, good location near the park, art gallery and a few historic buildings. Breakfast served in a comfy dining room - we were perfectly happy with the selection and price.

Overall, this was the best-value stay we had in a month in Oz, and Benalla was a pleasant surprise (excluding restaurants!).

We stayed over night last saturday (4/8/12) while passing through to NSW. The rooms was very clean and upto date. Bed was very comfy and the shower had great presure and hot water. We only had a short work to the local hotel for a meal and a couple of cold ones.
The price was reasonable and the person behind the desk was very helpful and cheerful.
Only small problem was the air con / heater was a bit noisey.
We will go back.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2012

We stayed at the Avondel on a Saturday night while visiting family. A good hotel. Nice clean room, 3 forms of heating which was great for June. Excellent value for money. Bathroom was well laid out and hot water was hot with plenty of pressure. Everything we needed. Did not try restaurant or pool. Would definitely return.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2012

The website shows rooms that have been renovated but I think that all that has been done is a change of bed linen and carpet because the bathroom was still very outdated (with some mould in the shower) and the counter tops in the room still in that awful mission brown melamine that went out years ago. Having said that the room was very clean and it was a nice touch to have fresh milk waiting in the good sized bar fridge in the room. Check in was easy and the staff were polite and friendly. Close to town (about 20 min walk back across the bridge) good little fish and chip shop (sorry can't recall the name) just on the other side of the park from the hotel. Bed comfi, small tv but good choices of programs with cable included, wifi also included, overall a nice hotel in a great little country town.
