Friendly greeting. Rooms very clean and neat. Great setup for breakfast. All you need for an overnight stay. Very well maintained. Nice pool area which would be nice in warmer weather. Walking distance to the local hotel. Highly recommend.

We visited Benalla for the Street Art festival and were lucky enough to book the last room available at this motel. Lucky because the staff were so friendly, knowledgeable and eager to help. Our room was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. Considering the number of people staying we did not hear a sound from the other guests until...

Our stay at this motel was excellent. Value for money, great position & friendly, helpful staff. We stayed 2 nights as a large group for a sporting event. Nothing was too much trouble. They allowed us to keep a couple of rooms all day on our day of departure so the kids called have showers & use the swimming pool....

We had a comfortable stay at Avondel. The motel is very well maintained and the beds were very comfortable. We stayed in the 2 bed room unit. It consists of a normal sized motel room plus one separate bedroom with 2 singles. The downside was the traffic noise at night - the 2 bed room unit is at the front...

We had 3 nights in Benalla last week looking at horse studs. The motel was updated with good beds, friendly service and great value breakfasts. We happened to be staying while the World Champion Glider competition was going on and motel was busy. Staff took it in their stride and made the experience a good one.

Got stranded in Benalla for a night after a break down on the way to Sydney. We were lucky enough to score a room at the Avondel even though it was about 11pm.
