“Sorry I hadn't stayed here earlier”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013

We have stayed in Albury many times but until I saw this motel on tripadvisor - and the great reviews - I didn't know it existed. It is a reasonable drive from the CBD but is worth the drive as the location is lovely and peaceful. Justin's and Travis go out of there way to make your stay enjoyable and make you feel valued. An adequate continental breakfast is included in the room price.

Thank you for your review Janet.
It is funny you say that you didn't know we existed. Since making Albury our new home, the locals we run into always say to us they didn't know we existed either. When visitors stay for the first time, like you, most are pleasantly surprised and some kick themselves for not staying here earlier. Seems like we are not only 'Albury's Quietest Motel', perhaps we are also Albury's Best Kept Secret?
The CBD is one turn and only 5 minute drive or so, and we have also recently arranged a partnership with the local sports club, offering fantastic meals with Motel discount.
Being away from home, we also like to think we are doing everything we can to make our guests feel valued, after all, without our guests, we would not exist. It is pleasing to know that is being received by our guests also.
We look forward to seeing you again.
Regards Travis & Justina Breheny.

A great midway point between Melbourne and Sidney. Clean and well maintained, excellent service. Quiet location with comfortable beds and decent size TV and free WiFi (4mbps). I cannot understand why more hotels/motels don't offer free WiFi - it certainly clinched it for me when I was choosing an overnight stop. I didn't get a chance to try out the continental breakfast but I'm pretty sure it would have been just fine. No real negatives - a bath would have been nice (and saved me from having to sit my 10 month old in the basin (having unsuccessfully dangled him in the shower)).

Thank you for your review Pete.
We are pleased to read you and your family enjoyed your short say with us.
Our mattresses were purchased locally, and were made to order.
WiFi is something that we feel is necessary in hotels, as most people rely on it these days for work, or simply keeping in touch with family or friends when travelling.
Unfortunately, we do not offer baths in our 3.5 star rooms, as most travelers do not like to shower over bath set up these days, however our AAA rated 4 star rooms do have a large separate corner spa bath for our guests enjoyment.
Thank you for choosing to stay with us and we hope to see you again in the future.
Regards Travis & Justina Breheny.

After driving in torrential rain for 2 days we decided to spend the night in Albury rather than push on home. Using Tripadvisor as my guide, I rang the Sundowner Hume Country Motor Inn and spoke to the wonderful Justina. A room, and cooked breakfast, was quickly arranged - all very easy.

When we arrived at 8.30pm I was attended to by Travis who informed me that the keys were in our room and he'd put the lights on for us and the heater had been going for a couple of hours. He offered us a clear map of Albury and highlighted where the main restaurant precinct was.

The room was spacious with plenty of room for myself, husband and 12 year old daughter. The addition of a small dining table and chairs was very welcome as was the super quiet location and the comfortable bed.

The entire room, including the bathroom, was spotless and excellent value for money. Our hot breakfasts arrived this morning and were more than sufficient and well cooked. Hubby went over to reception this morning and asked for more milk and Travis happily responded with a small bottle of real milk! A massive difference from the UHT milk from the Melbourne hotel the night before.

It was the little things that made this break in our trip not just pleasant, but enjoyable. Highly recommended and we won't bother staying anywhere else in future.

Room Tip: Family room with a queen and 1 single gives you more than sufficient space with a small kitchenette...

Thank you very much for your kind review DrTard.
We always like to present a room that is clean, and pre-heated in winter, and pre-cooled in summer for our guests comfort. To walk into a room and relax after long drive, without having to wait for the heater to get going, is a small thing, but we feel very important, especially for those guests, such as yourselves, who have children.
Thank you for you comments about breakfast, and real milk is another small thing we like to provide for our guests comfort. We feel that the small things, without 'cutting corners' make our guests stay with us, just that little bit better. The test for us is, would we like it? It was a short stay, but hopefully another time, you and your family could stay with us again, spending some more time in this great part of the world, and discover what the surroundings has to offer.
Regards Travis & Justina Breheny

Stayed in the family room for one night on the way to Sydney and was pleasantly surprised. Room was huge and for $128 per night including breakfast for 4 people was fantastic value. Travis was very welcoming and even had the heater going in the room for us when we arrived. Would definitely stay here again

Thank you for your review Densand.
Having pre-purchased your room under our Advance purchase package, you saved 10% on your room. This is a great idea when you book ahead, 21+ days in advance, for the budget conscious traveler, or for those who are wanting to get a bargain. It is available on all of our room types and since introducing this several months ago, it has proved very popular.
Having you room pre-heated in winter is something we always like to do for our guests, as it is something we would like done for ourselves when travelling.
Thank you for staying with us, and we hope to see you and your family again soon.
Regards Travis & Justina Breheny

I booked a spa room about 3 hours out from Albury. The room was huge, clean and very well presented. When I got there they had preheated the room which was very nice of them.
This hotel also offers as standard free Breaky and WIFI. In Australia this is not common and it was a great deal maker when looking for a hotel.
Well done guys will come back as we pass through again.

Thank you for your review John.
It was great having you stay with us, we enjoyed our chat.
The spa rooms are very popular, and are independently rated 4 stars with AAA Tourism.
After a long drive, you deserve to walk into a pre-heated room in the middle of winter as a minimum we believe.
The buffet breakfast and WiFi is all included, and our most of our guests appreciate this during their stay, as it is very handy.
We look forward to seeing you again when you are in the area next. Thanks John.

Motel was very clean, great location and very quiet, had an excellent night's sleep.
Made to feel very welcome, which was appreciated after a long drive, the heater was on in the room when we arrived.
A little more car parking space near the front could help.
The buffet breakfast was a great way to start the day.

Thank you for your review Warren.
Having our rooms well presented is very important to us. After a long drive, to walk into your pre-heated room in winter so you can sit down and relax straight away, is what we believe it is all about. For those visitors who like tranquility, peace and quiet, our location certainly provides that, yet only 2 turns from the freeway, and 5 minutes from the CBD. We feel you get a little bit of the best of both worlds when staying with us.
Interesting comment about the car parking. It could always be bigger I suppose, however, we sometimes host bus groups, and many guests with trailers, who do not seem to have much issue with it, and the size of our car park would have to be larger than the average car park size compared to other accommodation providers. We would be interested to hear in more detail about your experience. Is that possible?
We look forward to hosting you again in the future.

Thank you for your review Hayley.
It was great having you and your family stay with us. Being set on a large property, with a children's playground and lots of grass around, makes it a family friendly motel to stay at whilst in the area.
We really do enjoy having families stay with us, both for short and extended visits.
We hope to see you again and thank you for saying with us.
