“Stay at Sundowner Hume Country Motor Inn”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

We needed a place to stop and relax before we could embark on big journey next day. I was travelling with 9 other family members and needed comfy & economical place, our search took us to SHCMI and we just loved it, spacious clean rooms, friendly staff & complimentary breakfast...we had a great start next day, so thank you SHCMI!

Thank you for your review Apurva-Goswami.
We are so pleased that you and your family enjoyed your stay with us.
Many of our guests love the complimentary continental breakfast, especially those in large groups, as it works out to be fantastic value for money for the overall package.
Our rooms as you stated are bigger than most motels around, which provide for a more comfortable stay for our guests, with a more spacious feeling. Some small improvements we are working on are painting of the entire balustrades. We are about 3/4 of the way through.
We hope to see you again, and thanks again for choosing the Hume Country Motor Inn to be apart of your journey.
Regards, Travis & Justina Breheny.

Stayed for one night on the way through to Snowy Mountains. Standard room was very clean and tidy (decore is reflective of the age of the facility but in terrific condition). Free continental breakfast was a great way to start the day. Family run business that provided friendly personalised service. Great pool and playground for the family, nice quite location only 5 mins from CBD. Would certainly recommend.

Thank you for your review Leigh M.
It was a pleasure having both you and Lara stay with us while on your way further East.
It is pleasing to read that you enjoyed your time here and we believe all your comments to be fair and reasonable. They are certainly consistent with most others we have received. We are currently in the process of painting the balustrades at the rear of the rooms right up to and including the pool fence, so next time you are here it will hopefully present that little bit better.
Thanks again for choosing the Hume COuntry Motor Inn and we hope to see you again in the future.

We are very pleased to read that you and your family had a nice stay with us.
Receiving value for money is very important, and we are glad that you though our package delivered that. Having the facilities you mentioned add for a entertaining stay, especially for those with children, as the pool, playground and grassed area helped the little ones burn off some energy. Nothing worse than arriving late on a hot day, and the room is boiling, so we like to cool it down for our guests where we can on those hot days. We are glad you liked it.
We hope to see you all again next time you are in ALbury.Wodonga.

The management was very friendly and the service good (except on New Year's Day when there was none)
The only offputting thing was the rather confronting notice that a $25 washing up fee would be retrospectively charged if we didn't put our dishes away!

Room Tip: I don't know what the other rooms were like.

Thank you for your review Noel W.
With both of us working in customer service all our lives, we always strive to offer the best service possible and we are glad to read that you thought highly of the service you received. We are a little confused about your comment about new years day though, reception was open for business. We would like to know more about this, if possible could you please contact us with more information.
The signs you are referring to in our rooms were inherited from the previous owners which was asking owners to wash their dishes ready for the next guest. You will find these signs are in most motels, however we have recently taken these down and replaced with another Quick Information Guide, offering different wording.
We hope to see you again when you are in Albury/Wodonga.
Regards, Travis & Justina Breheny.

We stayed for two nights on the way to Sydney from Melbourne. A clean and comfortable motel with a well sized pool, playground and BBQ area, located a five minute drive from the town centre.

The rooms are well sized and the complimentary continental breakfast is excellent. A good selection of cereal, toast, yoghurt, juices etc. Service was friendly and helpful, especially when our car had broken down!

On our return leg we stayed at an alternative motel in order to be closer to the vehicle rental place and aside from location it was inferior to the Hume Country Motel in every way. I would definitely recommend if stopping in Albury.

Thank you for your review dso1uk.
It is great to read that you thought our motel was of a higher standard than the other that you stayed in. Cleanliness and service is very high on our agenda here at the Hume Country Motor Inn. The rooms do offer that little bit extra space than what you would normally find in some motels, making it for a more comfortable stay, especially on longer visits.
Our breakfast is complimentary, and we are pleased to read that you saw it as good value to get you and your group started for the day.
We hope to see you again if you are ever in the area again.

Easy hotel, nice and clean and comfortable. Great continental breakfast and the owners are lovely. Will definitely stay here again. The kids even slept in til after 7 as the room was so dark with the curtains drawn. Will definitely stay here again.

We are pleased to read that you and your family enjoyed your stay with us.
Many guests, especially the kidlets love the breakfast, as it is self serve (go at your own pace), low key and casual. We are also glad to hear the block out blinds worked well for you.
We look forward to seeing you and your family again.

Looking for somewhere to stop overnight on the Sydney to Melbourne trip with kids and this fitted the bill. It is not luxury but a basic clean motel that is suitable for families. Have stayed here previously and was happy with the experience so booked again for this trip. Several changes since the first visit - new owners/managers who are very nice and welcoming people but the other not so great change is the building and excavation happening next door. No nice view! There was no noise when we were there over a weekend but weekdays could be very different (according to the sign in reception). The room itself was quite spacious but some work needs to be done on replacing or repairing the curtains. Beds were comfortable and room facilities adequate. The pool and playground area were great for the kids! The breakfast room with more than adequate continental breakfast (included in the price) again suited us. Overall it works well when traveling with kids but as a couple I would book elsewhere.

Thank you for your review Tish55.
It is great to read that your family enjoys staying here when travelling from Sydney to Melbourne, and we agree with many of your points. Since taking over the Motel nearly 12 months ago, we have invested time and money in many improvements that were required around the property such as new fridges, outdoor seating and the gardens, and we still have many more to go including the curtains and bedding. We actually have new window furnishings on order from a local supplier, and are waiting for them to arrive. Currently 7 of our 21 rooms have updated window furnishings, you must have stayed in a room with originals which are waiting to be replaced. We are displaying a sign in reception currently regarding some noise we experienced during the week in November/December due to some construction behind our property. We believe the earthworks are completed now, but until we know for sure, we will continue to display our sign, so we know that we are doing our best to be as informative to our guests as we possibly can. I am not sure what to say about the view, as we are still getting guests comment on how lovely the view and surrounds are. Yes, there is development out back, but there is still lovely views to take in, in our opinion.
We are glad you agree that the kids should enjoy it here, as there is plenty to do, when compared to other accommodation providers available.
The breakfast works well for most, especially the families, who can feed the children in the morning, before making way to the next stop.
When you stay next time with the children, please ask us to show you our renovated Spa rooms. These are a popular choice for our guests when travelling without children. It is for those who like to treat themselves with a touch of luxury, they are also elevated, so you enjoy a better view across North/East Albury. We are a split rated motel, so we offer different levels of accommodation, at different prices so please do not count us out when it comes to that.
Thanks again for your review and we hope to see you again in 2014.
Regards, Travis & Justina Breheny.
