“dads to dads”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

We are a group of dads that take other dads who also have family members with disabilities in the family away for respite and support . These men don,t often get a chance to get away with like minded men , hence when they do they would appreciate nice clean accomadition and good food ... all of which was provided by El Sierra Motel . Thank you for everything and can highly recomend both price and accomodation . John Hutchinson Dads to Dads .

Room Tip: just ask for special needs .

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

We (four mates) have been staying at the El Sierra on our annual golf trip for the past five years. The motel is very good - the rooms are clean and well-maintained. The air-conditioning is also extremely useful. Michael and his daughter have been particularly helpful and over the years we feel as though we have established a good relationship with them. The breakfast room is also very good and I recommend both the continental and cooked breakfasts (sausage, tomato, eggs and bacon) - a great way to start the day. The motel is also perfectly situated within a terrific group of golf-courses including Cobram-Barooga and Tocumwal. Yarrawonga is also not too far away. The El Sierra is genuinely a very good place to stay and enjoy.

Room Tip: A double room with separate enclosed bedroom is useful, particularly if your mate or partner snores.

We have been staying with El Sierra for the past 11 years basing our 20 plus group here for playing golf in the murray region. During or stays over the years Michael, Lorraine and family have always made us feel so welcome and accomodate our every needs. The rooms are always clean,warm and tidy with impreesive renovated additions each year we return. The all inclusive accom., golf, breakfast and dinner package is a real winner and unbeatable value. They also book our golf venues and times so all the hard work is done. El Sierra is located central to all the local facilities and activities making it very convenient. The Sporties courtesy bus is great and smart convenience being regular for pick up or drop off taking the worry out of enjoying a drink without driving. There is more than ample parking for our large group and we also utilise the pool, tennis court and BBQ area on the premises. I certainly recommended El Sierra as a place to stay if looking for accommodation close to the main golf courses on the Murray with excellent hospitality and value.

Stayed at El Sierra between 09 - 12 June with a group of friends for golf & relaxation. The accommodation was close to both Cobram Barroga Golf Club & Sporties Club - Sporties had a courtesy bus which was great, but if you felt like a bit of fresh air, both were within walking distance. The accommodation was basic but very clean & comfortable and any shortcomings were well overcome by the attentive and friendly hospitality of Michael and his family. The bus they provided from Melbourne to the Murray was a definate drawcard, and in excellent condition. The full breakfasts were worth the extra as was the extra $10 for twin share as opposed to quad share. Certainly recommended as a place to stay if looking for accommodation close to the main golf courses of the Murray with excellent hospitality.

We use El Sierra as our base for all our Club's golf 'safaris' to the Murray River courses in this region. The value is outstanding and the owners roll out the red carpet every time we return. The value is unbeatable and El Sierra's location puts all the golf courses within easy reach. El Sierra help with course bookings and their homestyle cooked breakfasts and clean and spaceous rooms served to make the experience that much better. A courtesy bus taht makes regular pick ups /drop offs to/from the Sports Club adds to the convenience of staying at El Sierra.

Room Tip: Talk to the friendly staff about what you would like! They will meet your needs.
