We travel to Traralgon to catch up with friends and always stay at City Gardens. It is extremely clean and comfortable and the hosts are very helpful and friendly. They are happy to assist wherever they can and breakfasts are hearty and enjoyable.

The city gardens motel offers good clean, reasonably spacious rooms and whilst not the most modern they certainly have all the basic requirements. They also offer a decent breakfast. The owners are very friendly and helpful. I was offered a deluxe room with full english breakfast for $120.00 which I thought was good value. Julie suggested the bowls club for... More

Hello Narelle: So glad you enjoyed your stay, I hope the snow was good and not too cold. We are reasonably close to the snow and only an hour from the beach, so you could always enjoy a surf if the snow was bad. Great to have you stay with us and many thanks for the review. More

The moment we walked into the office we were greeted with a warm welcome. Very impressed with this small owner operated motel. Room was spotlessly clean, bed so so comfortable, linen crisp and fresh. Big windows made the room light and airey. The small vanity sink is in the bedroom outside the bathroom but this is no big deal. Would... More

Good sized rooms. Big bed. Very clean. Great location. Super friendly owners. Air Con. Great location. I ordered food from a restaurant to my room - the owners went out of their way to plate it for me! That's the kind of place this is. I'll definitely stay here again.
