“Beautiful spot on the Murray”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

The Cadell on the Murray would have to have arguably one of the best views of the river. On arrival we sat outside our room, at the table and chairs on the lawn and enjoyed the view and, lucky for us, the sunshine.

Our double room was surprisingly spacious, with a comfortable queen bed and also a single which doubled as a couch. There was a table with 3 chairs and an armchair. A large flatscreen tv and a very efficient split system heater/a/c.

The bathroom was a good size with a shower over a small bath, large mirror and plenty of towels. Lucky I took shampoo etc as none were supplied. There were however 2 hairdryers.

Our unit had a kitchenette with a small refrigerator, a microwave oven, toaster and electric jug. Perfect for making breakfast and sitting outside watching the birds and the river traffic.

Yes, the Cadell's décor is somewhat dated but immaculately kept. All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this delightful spot and will definitely return.

Room Tip: Doesn't matter as all rooms would have excellent views of the river.

This really is a well run establishment with lots to offer - including genuine value for money. Sure it's a couple of kilometres out of town but that's got it's benefits too.
My room was spacious, very smartly presented and spotlessly clean. It contained everything I needed including large flat-screen TV, split-system aircon and a full-size table and chairs. It's far enough off the road to ensure a quiet sleep and the bonus is - the Murray River is about 30 paces from the back door of every room.
And if that's not enough, the hosts are friendly and obliging - and one other thing: the breakfasts are massive.

I reply to this review with a large smile on my face... A topic of much discussion here and you hit the nail on the head - the massive breakfasts! So hearty many say they don't need lunch after Ben's breakfast - he loves hearing that and becomes only more determined to keep it that way.
So glad you found our accommodation, service and value so good. Hope to see you again in the future.

Thank you for your lovely review of Cadell - definitely one of the best things is being able to look out at the view from the comfort of your room - especially in the cooler months not even having to leave the warmth and step outside! Look forward to seeing you again,

A lovely motel right on the Murray.

Rooms are old but very very clean. Beds are good & the rooms are very spacious. We took advantage of the riverside bbq's for dinner & breakfast. There is a Safeway at the turnoff which was great to grab the bbq supplies.
Kids enjoyed the playground & lots of space to run off that last bit of energy. Lovely to see river at sunset & sunrise. Would recommend a stay here.

Visited New Zealand and Victoria for 3 weeks in March. This topped our list for accommodation we would love to go back to. It's slightly out of town on the NSW side of the river, 10 minutes drive from the v pleasant Echuca tourist district. There is a vast manicured lawn from the cottages down to the Murray, with tables and chairs across it, as well as a barbecue. Abundance of bird life makes this a magical place to sit out in the evening. Kookaburras a particular highlight. Cottage had all the amenities one could wish for.

What a lovely review, thank you. Glad our accommodation was a highlight during your trip - and I agree, the bird-life is certainly something to sit back and enjoy. You describe Cadell just how we see it too - it is a magical Australian experience and we are so glad you found us during your trip to Aus. Thanks again

Took a chance on this accommodation, a great choice, friendly welcome, clean spacious accommodation with views out over the river. Well appointed and well kept inside and out. If you want extras they are available, if not just kick back and relax on the lawns overlooking the majestic Murray. The private boat ramp is in good order and although fairly steep is concrete with good grip. BBQ's on the lawns are in good order, are covered and lit, watch out though the kookaburras are quick on the draw for the odd snag!. A set of steps ( steep) goes down to private landing platfrom for boaties. Great location and only minutes from either Moama or Echuca. Was impressed so I booked again before leaving. Off peak rates are very reasonable.

Room Tip: Rooms with higher numbers are furthest from the road and closer to boat ramp. Rooms with low numbers...

Loved reading your review - the kookaburra comment made me laugh - so true - we almost need a warning sign by the BBQ's as they have been known to steal a sausage or two in their time. Thank you for a great review- glad you 'took a chance' on us and enjoyed your stay enough to re-book
