Close to service station and fast food outlets Great place to rest for any traveller very reasonably priced. Pleasantly surprised. We'll be back........

Perfect for the an overnight stay. Clean and organized staff friendly. Had everything you'd need. Electric blankets. Comfortable bed. Might be a bit dated in the decor but so what for an overnight stay. Highly recommend.

This is really budget motel stay but if you are just using it for a passing through overnight it's perfect. The decor is outdated so it's like a trip back to the 80s but very clean and everything you need 😃

I spent one night in this hotel on way to Wagga Wagga. Cheap, clean with friendly staff at the reception. My mother who is quite fussy was impressed with the towels LOL Close to service station and fast food outlets, if that's your thing Great place to rest for singles or couples and very reasonably priced. Pleasantly surprised.

This is about all I can say about this dated and tired motel. The heater was on all night but the room never really got warm. The rooms are small and while they allow pets, there is nowhere for dogs to run free in a safe environment. It is close to fast food places but unless you want to eat... More

It is what it is nothing more. Definately dated. But totally clean and tidy and functional. Room looked recent painted. Super comfy bed. For a cheap bed and shower it is perfect. If you are a princess that has to have fancy and modern then dont. $80 was very reasonable. Booking and check in friendly and easy

Travelling between Melbourne and Sydney Gundagai is just about half way so the bushmans retreat was recommended to us by another motel that was not animal friendly. It turned out to be an excellent recommendation. The whole hotel is tired and definitely not luxurious by any standards but it was scrupulously clean and the beds are very comfortable. There is...

Very clean and comfortable, the room had everything that you require. Comfy bed, small fridge, microwave, toaster, air conditioning and to be able to have the dog in the room with you is fantastic and very quiet. You can get meals on site and delivered to your room which are reasonably priced.

Clean and comfy room. The fact that the dog can be in the room with you is such a bonus. I also loved that we had a "welcoming committee" in the owner's cute little dog who came over to say hello to us and hung out for a while. Very pretty surroundings too.

Basic Room with queen bed. Fairly well appointed - clean, good size small fridge, coffee, tea, toaster so can have breakfast in your room if taking cereal, bread and butter. Close to freeway, MacD and Hungry Jacks. RSL in town provides good meals.
